Several years ago, I had to go to physical therapy, and my 30-something therapist wore something like this:

Merrell Circuit MJ Breeze Black - Zappos.com Free Shipping BOTH Ways

(Check out the video...they don't look as "clunky".)

She said she and several of the other therapists wore Merrells because they were so comfortable. They're not cheap, but when it comes to your feet, I think money well spent is the way to go.

Disclaimer: I have never worn Merrells. Just passing on some info that might help.

Uggs, and Fitflops are the most comfortable to me.

I'm going to put another vote in for Merrell, I have several different pairs in different styles and they are the most comfortable shoes I own.

Have to disagree - Merrells are not comfortable on me. I bought a pair of little Merrell sneaker flats to wear to Italy. My feet were so sore after just one day that I walked home from the Colosseum barefoot. Had to buy a pair of regular sneakers in Italy just so I could walk after that. I will never buy Merrell again because they ruined part of my honeymoon. Maybe some are comfortable, but certainly not all.

Guy point of view.

I have had two pairs of Merrells; the hiking boots are 20 years old and going strong.

I have a high arch and have had to shop around a bit. The most comfortable shoes I have found are SAS - San Antonio Shoes - but they are sold in brick and mortar stores only; no internet sales. I have tried Propet as well but thought they are basically a cheap version of SAS. The part about SAS I really like is the insole. I bought a couple of extras for my other shoes and they fit better, especially the Merell hiking boots.

They make a lot of women's styles and a few men's - typical of any shoe brand. Women have their choice of anything and guys get stuck with brogans - as if that is what we want.

Look for a shoe with a footbed. Ballet flats have no arch support whatsoever and there's usually not much padding between your foot and the sidewalk. I use zappos.com or shoebuy.com. Their comfort shoe categories have a lot of choices. You can get sneakers, mocs, sandals, athletic shoes, water shoes, boots, dress shoes, and even slippers with good support. Everything from trendy designs like Rocket Dog or Sketchers to very traditional styles from Trotter or Propet.

I read the reviews customers post and have found them to provide a treasure trove of helpful information about the shoe. Plus, the companies both have FREE shipping AND returns, so no problem if you get the shoe and don't like it. Easier than driving around to shoe stores. I find Keen, Merrell, and Naot to be very comfortable for daily wear.

The absolutely best shoes I have ever worn to date made with memory foam in the sole. A slice of heaven for your feet. Happy Trails.
