Best shoes for work?

I have been on my feet for over 60 hours in the last 5 days at work and they are blistered and sore as hell!

So I need to replace my rather hard leather shoes with something some comfortable and more supple. I work in a bar/restaurant which I am helping to launch (thus the long hours) thus the shoes need to be enclosed, so no open crocs for example.

Crocs do a shoe type footwear which is quite suitable but £60 is a lot for them, but if needs must.

Thus asking you lovely people for recommendations.

Funny? My croc sandal type things are very comfy to walk in for hours, also what my fiancee wears at work often as well.
Ill check out some Dr M's and Hang Wags, cheers.

A possibility but they have to be very plain trainers so they dont look like trainers, as I am a key member of staff I have to be setting an example as well. :thumbsup:

i hate that myself so trust me it wont be happening. Also as above due to bar/restaurant sandals will not be allowed by our health and safety. :thumbsup:

I wear Magnum's at work, they're really comfy. Not sure they're the kind of footwear you'd want to wear in a restaurant though...

I havent had Kickers since I was a kid!
Hush puppies do have a good reputation...that is what I need something comfy/cushioned with support. Hopefully I can get a day off soon to go shopping for some!

I'd recommend Flyflots too - they are so comfortable.

I have a pair for work and I'm on my feet for 8 hours per day. Never any trouble with blisters or the like. Mine aren't the clog style but to honest all of their shoes are comfy enough to wear all day long even the toe posts.

Hope this helps.

Andre,nip into M&S they do a range of shoes with sort of air/cushioned sole (cant remember the exact name of them)

I used to have a pair a couple of years ago for work,not the most fashionable things in the world but do the job if you are on your feet..alternatively as DC suggests a good pair of DM's wont put you wrong either


Would avoid the Crocs for obvious reasons

Docs are perfect = but change them for a period of time for another pair halfway through your shift , then put them back on - it helps cool your feet . . : )

Flyflots...never heard of them but sound good, sound perfect actually will look after work.

Cheers will look at them too. Avoid crocs for obvious reasons? I think your talking about the fact they have huge holes in them? If so the ones I was looking at are these:

Cheers, not sure about Clarks as that is where my current shoes are from and theyre killing me!

Looks like I need a day off work to go shopping and have a look at all of these!
Today is my 8th day without a day off, and another upto 11 hours today! Then got work again tomorrow when we open to the public, but hopefully will have Wednesday off! :-D
