Please tell me what kind of work shoes are the best. I am in desperate need of a comfortable supportive shoe.
Your work shoes should be the best fitting, most comfortable footwear you own. Fit is much more important than brand. Each company sizes their products slightly differently, and the most popular brand will not fit all feet equally well. A great shoe that is too tight, or that slips, slides, and gives you blisters, is not a great shoe for you. The most common mistake is buying shoes too small. Your feet "spread out" during a long shift, so the size that works for everyday wear may be too small for work. I suggest shopping after you have finished a shift, when your feet are "big." And, never buy a shoe with the expectation that it will stretch after you buy it. Your shoes should feel great the first time you wear them. If they do not, keep looking, regardless of how well rated the brand is.
