    Default Need new work shoes

    I had been putting off wearing closed toe shoes for as long as I possibly could... but now it is getting a bit cold out. I decided to put my sandals that I wear to work to rest (I have several pairs) and I dug out some closed-toed shoes. I like them because they are comfortable, even though they probably aren't all that stylish. They are made by Born and I had bought them on clearance at Dillards a couple of years ago. Well this was my first time wearing them this season and you'll never believe what happened. BOTH soles split right in half! These are the only shoes I have to wear to work at the moment since most of my other shoes are either casual or uncomfortable dressy. So I'm looking for some new shoes, but I really don't have any money at the moment. LOL! So I might go to VM or something so I can use my card. Does anyone have any suggestions? They have to be comfortable since I stand in them for 7-8 hours.

    What kind of work do you do? Are you a nurse, could you wear those Crocs? I know they make them with fuzzy lining for the winter. Aerosoles are also supposed to be very comfortable. I've seen them sometimes at TJ Maxx & Marshalls!

    So I just checked out the VM website, and if you are looking for comfortable flats, I totally recommend something by Cole Haan..

    I work retail. Technically we are supposed to wear "dress" shoes, but I just can't stand wearing heels for 7-8 hours. We can't sit down at all, we have to stand. And the floor is hard too.

    You mean these Jennifer?



    I would have to try them on because that style doesn't always fit my narrow foot very well.

    Gosh, I wish VM had more stuff to look at on their website. They have SO much more stuff in the store. They really need to do something about their selection because it really isn't very good at all. I wish you guys could see all the stuff they actually carry.

    I tried those on actually and the elastic part on the top hits me in a weird spot. I don't know, it's like there is a nerve there or something.

    They are cute though. I really liked the patent ones.

    How about a TJ Maxx? They get some comfy shoes sometimes and you can't beat their prices!

    BTW, when I try on shoes I stand and walk around in them to see if they are going to hurt my feet.

    Yeah, I'll check TJ Maxx out too. And yes, I will walk around when trying on shoes to check for anything that would be hitting weird or rubbing or poking or whatever. I also check the arch because I have a really high arch and some shoes don't have the arch even in the right place. It can be really hard sometimes for me to find shoes that don't hurt my feet. I was told that I don't have much "padding" on the bottom of my feet and that is why I can't stand wearing certain styles. I also have narrow feet. They aren't as narrow now that I am older though. I had to have special shoes when I was a little kid because my foot would just slid right out of a regular shoe.

    My mom has narrow feet. She likes Aerosoles and Naturalizer for day time, walking wear.
