What to look for and avoid in shoes designed for standing all day

 

The shoes should have good arch support

This will help to distribute your weight evenly and prevent your feet from getting sore. When you support the arches, the feet, legs, knees and back are aligned, creating a solid foundation for spending long hours on your feet.

The shoes should have a cushioned sole

Soles with good multiple layers of different materials and thicknesses help to absorb shock and protect your feet from the impact of walking and standing on hard surfaces.

The shoes should be made of a breathable material

This will help to keep your feet cool and dry, which can help to prevent blisters and odor.

The shoes should have a wide toe box

A wide toe box allows ample space for toe splay, reducing pressure, promoting proper alignment and enhancing overall comfort.

The shoes should have quality rubber outsoles

A good rubber sole offers enhanced grip and ensures improved traction, reducing the likelihood of slips and falls, thereby promoting safety and stability throughout the day.

The shoes’ uppers should offer a pressure free fit

Upper materials that are flexible, such as stretch materials, soft leather and soft synthetic materials, promote a pressure free fit that is ideal for all day wear.

Avoid shoes with high heels

High heels put extra stress on your feet and can lead to pain. On the other hand, shoes with minimal heel to toe drop disperse shock throughout the foot and facilitate the right foot motion.

Make sure the shoes fit properly

Shoes that are too small or too big, or too narrow, can cause pain and discomfort. It’s important to take width as well as length of shoe into consideration when you shop for footwear.
