Re: New job - Standing & walking all day - Shoe/Sneaker recommendations please :)

Ryka is the best! I wore Reebok’s most of my nursing career until I started my last job. I switched to Ryka and they saved my feet and legs!!!

On my feet all day for teaching for years, I wore Easy Spirit “Punter.” (A lace-up tennis shoe leather)

It has a “spirit level” of 3, which is the highest. This means it can be worn for intense activities such as running, but for me, constant standing was more grueling than moving.

One thing I noticed is that my skeleton seemed to adjust to the footbed in that shoe, making wearing others more difficult for a few years after I retired.
