Hubby has plantar fasciitis and the shoes that hurt his feet the least are Keens. He walks six+ miles a day, five days a week year round, weather permitting.

I walk somewhere between six and eleven miles a day five days a week and my favorite walking shoes are the brand Saucony. They are the only shoes that are comfortable for my feet for so many miles and without giving me blisters or squished toes. My other favorite brand of shoes are Merrill's. I have multiple pairs of them for my snow boots, my fancier dressy boots, and my hiking shoes.

My feet take a lot of abuse with all of the walking and hiking I do weekly and these two brands of shoes keep my feet happy.

Crazy4Chickens, thanks a lot!

A lot of people seem to have plantar fasciitis. Is a symptom of that when the heel of the foot feels like it has no "padding" & it's painful like you're standing/walking right on the direct heel bone?

Yes, that's exactly what it's like. The heel is tender and painful, especially when you first start walking.

I ordered a pair of SoftWalk flats from Zappo's recently and really love them. They feel like slippers.

My daily walkers/work shoes have been the Nike Pegasus line for more than a dozen years.
This year's model, the Pegasus 36, has a slightly lower heel than before. They give me a backache when I wear them. Recently I stocked up on last year's model at the Nike Outlet in downtown Las Vegas. When they wear out I will probably have to find something new. Meanwhile, I have 2 unworn pairs of the 36 model. I'm going to try a heel insert in them. Hoping Nike goes back to the old configuration next year.

I just bought EXACTLY what I've been looking for since 2017. Made by Easy Street (Comfort Wave) a mule style, with a 2 inch heel.....the most comfy and serviceable shoe I've found in years! I can slip them off with ease if I enter someone's house when it's wet weather, since my job entails going inside various houses. I got them in black and the style is "Calm". The picture doesn't do the shoe justice. They look good with socks and slacks, or leggings and long sweater dresses. Love them! .... like walking on cushions.

My favorites of all time are these:

https://www.drmartens.com/us/en/p/11837002

They have a decent amount of cushion to them and they don't have an obnoxiously high arch support. I wore them when I had factory floor jobs where I was on my feet 12 hours and never had painful feet. I also have relatively flat feet and love them. My younger sister now has them in her possession and 20+ years later they are still in pretty decent shape.

I think I've heard of Easy Street, will look into those more, thank you!

Haven't had doc martens since high school. They were heavy & I don't care for the styles these days. But thank you!

I think you should pick an afternoon and go try on a lot of shoes until you find the right pair.
Very good!

I don't think very many people know about these shoes. My friend got a pair of them and since we wear the same size, she let me try them out and I fell in love with them. They are super comfortable and I love the way they feel and look. Lots of different styles to try out. I have one pair of them now, but am planning to get some more in different styles.

Thanks, no, never heard of it, so I'll check them out. That woven design is similar to the brand Bernie Mev shoes, which I've bought a couple of pairs long ago:
