    Remember those workout shoes with the strange hump in the middle? I wear those. I don't get a workout from wearing them, but I have high arches and find that they give a lot more more support than any other shoe. I just wear the generic brand from Walmart.

    I work 12 hour shifts in med/surg as a CNA and I wear sanita clogs, they are expensive but amazing!

    I have four pairs of Klogs, which are similar to Danskos but have a much softer inside. They also come in some really fun patterns. I have a silver snakeskin pair, a purple glitter pair, a leopard pair and a black pair with a rainbow shine to them. They are extremely comfortable and I get lots of compliments. The only complaint I have is that they are VERY hard to run in. I also have a pair of Asic tennis shoes that I like if I know I'm going to do a lot of extra running around that day.

    I think that no matter what kind of shoes you wear to work by the end of your shift your dogs will be a'barkin! I just bought myself a nice pair of Dr. Scholl's tennis shoes with arch support with these foamy gel-like things in the heel parts that feel sooo much better than what I was previously wearing to work! But, even so; barking dogs at the end! Oh and I got my new work shoes at one of our local Walmart's for $20.

    I wear Crocs and Birkenstocks. I cannot wear shoes. My feet are claustrophibic. (:

    Hey, I am not sure what you mean by 'barking' but at the end of a 12 hour shift my feet don't hurt at all. Nope, not my knees, my back nothing.
    Crocs are the best.
