Title: Quality sneakers for big guy who stands all day.
Post by: nprguy on February 20, 2016, 04:34:36 PM
For years I have been using New Balance 9XX running shoes with superfeet insoles as my work shoes.   I am on my feet for 8 hours a day minimum and have found this combo provides all day comfort.   They used to last at least one year of daily use, but in the last few years I have found they lose their comfort after as little as 6 months and need to be replaced.  The shoes and insoles cost over 100 dollars so I am not particularly happy about replacing them twice a year.  I have tried cheaper shoes but find they are not nearly as comfortable even with insoles.  Any recommendations for comfortable, supportive sneakers that will end up costing less then 200 dollars a year?

I recently bought 3 pairs of Nikes (shoe that works best for my feet) on 6pm.com. Only cost $130 for all three pairs! 12.5-13 is a relatively difficult size to find too, but they had it no problem.
