Shoes with Good Support!Register Today!
- by Dempather Jan 15, '08I'm really desperate for a shoe with good support. I've tried Danskos and running shoes, but my arches ache when I'm on my feet all day long. Does anybody have experience with crocs? I heard they're good. Any other tips would be great! Thanks!
- Jan 15, '08 by nrsang97Have you tried New Balance? I have flat feet and they really help me. I have to replace them often though because the arch support gets broken down. (every 4-6 months) There are also other threads on good shoes search those.
As far as crocs I wouldn't recommend them. I tired some on and thought they felt like no support at all.
- Jan 15, '08 by BillieRNI wear Croc's for working. I have worn them for a year. I can work 8-14 hours and not once have my feet been sore at all. I have previously had problems with my legs being sore and my heels but since getting the croc's my feet are most comfortable. I wear the ones without holes and the only downside is that your feet will sweat.
- Jan 16, '08 by loricatusCrocs came out with a new model this past summer that offers excellent support-The Specialist (with or without vents). Prior to buying these, I used New Balance for their arch support; but, still had aching feet at the end of the shift. The crocs, together with TEDS, has eliminated all foot pain (even after 4 in a row). The only problem is sweaty feet. That has been cured with a dab of antiperspirant [spelling?] on my soles and some baby powder on the socks.
- Jan 16, '08 by DempatherLooking at the website.. it looks like there are a pair of specialist crocs with a vent.. that may help with the perspiration. Thanks!
- Jan 16, '08 by S.N. VisitI really like my "American Red Cross Shoes". I also have Cherokee "workwear" shoes and "Rockers" by Cherokee. They are both comfy, but not as much as the Red Cross shoes. I run on the treadmill at work during my break and my feet feel great before, during, and after my 12 hr shift, with all three pairs of my nsg shoes.
- Dec 11, '09 by helpfultravelerI found that the Klogs Professional line of shoes to be very supportive. I took advantage of the deal at the Orthotic Shop where they have a buy-together package on Klogs and Lynco orthotics. The removable insoles of the klogs makes using the lynco's easy and comfortable. Check out their lineup of Klogs Nursing Shoes. I have been wearing the Boca with the L420 lynco since I have low arches.
- Dec 12, '09 by GadgetRN71If you have been diagnosed with plantar faciitis(sp?) I wouldn't recommend Crocs..I wore them for the last time 3 weeks ago. My arches were killing me. If you don't have any foot problems, they may be fine, but they just didn't have enough support
I had good luck with the Danskos and I just bought those Sketchers Shape Up sneakers. They are very comfortable.
