It took me almost 2weeks to get used to standing on register, but now my feets can bare it without any insoles or comfort shoes. However now i have small knee pains which i dont think i'll ever get used too. It's not too serious to bother me in normal life. But it's hard not to lock your knees when you stand so long...
What footwear you get should be based on your arch type, which can change over time. Once you know that, most major brand websites, (Asics for axample), will suggest shoes for that arch type. SF Tm's should wear a running shoe due to the pounding your joints take on those awful floors. Cashiers could go with a cross trainer, which tend to be less expensive. I have learned over the years that you really do get what you pay for with shoes. I am currently having good luck with Ascis gel. I search for shoes based on their site recommendations and have mot been dissapointed. I have had luck finding discontinued styles on clearance on Amazon.
i wore basketball shoes for my first few days and my feet absolutely killed.. i picked up some reebok zigtechs or whatever they are called them and i havent had sore feet since.. they were on the pricey side, i know i spent a little more then 100$ on them but they also have great traction if your in the parking lot doing carts likeme
Right now, New Balance wide work shoes. New Balance ain't what they used to be and my feet are starting to hurt again after only 3 months of wearing them. Anyone have any luck wearing hiking boots? I'm seriously thinking of going that way...
I went to their site and they do have some without holes. Is there a policy prohibiting strap backs?
There is a style called Chelea that is all leather, completely covering heel and toe, but I don't seem to be able to find it in a brick and mortar store. Hate to buy them and then have to pay to return them.
I really need to find a shoe that can hold up to all the pounding!
If you get them in black and wear the strap in the back they look like shoes, especially if your pants are a little long. If you have plantar faciitis, you might want to check out Dansko's as well. Good luck!
