Who to Trust
Timberland, Klogs USA, and DANSKO are some of the most reputable brands when it comes to trusted slip-on, comfortable, durable, and even industrial grade shoes for long standing, springing, running, pushing, and pulling. DANKSO products are predominantly known for their added comfort, slip on with ease line of footwear that are more than durable and firm enough to “stand up” to standing all day.
When considering the most meaningful brands and models of shoes for standing all day, consider the texture of the shoe, it’s resistance to sweat and environmental hazards or changes, how not only comfortable it is, but also how that equates to its level of durability, tightness, or how “firm” it is. That is, as you don’t want to be walking, standing, pulling, or lifting all day in “broken” shoes that have too much give’ and in turn leave you in pain, soreness, or even blisters.
While new brands or manufacturing names might offer especially could deals on some shoes for standing all day, such as for work, school, lifting, or walking and working out, it’s worth taking into consideration that you not only get what you pay for; but also that where there’s a rhyme there’s always a reason’. In other words, if it seems too good to be true, then it likely is.
What to Look for
A great start for considering and optimizing your search for shoes that are optimized for standing all day is examining the tread—even if visually on images—to determine how tall the treads are, the materials it’s made out of, it’s design, and overall purpose. While added modifications or changes externally or internally can be done in some cases, such as custom soles or shoelaces, this is not quite the case with components such as foot or shoe treads, tongue design, toe comfort, width, or of course arch and heel. Although, this is not to discredit the reality that an added-support arch can be added through a trusted source or manufacturer—whom also makes reliable, comfortable shoes for standing all day which are quite durable—such as Dr. Scholl’s footwear line.
If possible, consider brands and models that can offer not only arch support, but also improve the condition of and prevent harm to your knees, back, or even neck support due to durable and ergonomic design that’s made to support you and your body. Plenty of work shoes and other “comfort shoes”, such as those designed by Reebok are indeed designed with the added comfort, tenderness, and firmness to support such body parts and lower the impact likelihood of standing on your feet all day or doing other strenuous activities.
Synthetic sole designs and flexible, bouncy shoe ‘bodies’ for standing all day are optimal for getting the most out of your shoes for work, physical, and other laborious activities. In fact, the more synthetic and flexible the product materials involved in the tongue, sole, arch, and even toe point the all the more practical the product will be for standing all day. The LifeStride Women’s Bombay Flats are a great example of such, and go to show that sometimes the best shoes for standing all day don’t have to be the most “modern” or even utilize the most recent technology. In fact, sometimes simplicity can go all the further when it comes to meaningful size, comfort, and fit.
Ultimate, when possible, go with a brand that will really add comfort, flexibility, and “pleasure” to your FEET! For example, Skechers make’s great fitting, comfortable shoes that specialize in nearly providing you a ‘massage-like’ experience to definitely keep you coming back for more, and leaving you as energetic and comfortable as you were when you first started your work shift or other activity before standing on your feet ALL DAY!
Something really great to consider for work shoes and other professional or professional-casual environments and outings is how advanced and how much Oxfords have changed to really meet the new daily needs for not only standing all day, but also standing up to multiple weather conditions, abrasions, are easy to repair, and more! A shoe that is built to last, easy to repair, wax, or polish will make all the difference in not only comfort, but also professional or social etiquette and appearance for your shoes, no matter the type, for Standing All Day!
