Does anyone know of any shoes that are really comfortable and don't look like old lady shoes and don't cost a fortune

I wear crocs, the original style and they are awesome. I wear two colors and nothing about that looks old lady except that I'm old and I'm wearing them.

Clark's, Aetrex, Naturalizer's, & Proper are a few if looking for flat casual shoes. I wear New Balance or Brooks sneakers. I love the Mary Jane styles with the strap across the forefoot or a shoe with an ankle strap (Egyptian style). I can't wear clogs or shoes without straps because they won't stay on my feet. I've been wearing this classic style (started in my childhood) since I was in my 30's, and I'll soon be 54... Not old, yet. 🙏🌼

Adidas do well for me and I'm on my feet a lot, but I switch them around so they last longer

I have to wear walmart shoes, first of all because they are inexpensive. Secondly, because they don't pinch around my ankle or hurt my feet at all. Almost always have to get a 1/2 size bigger because my feet also tend to swell with the plantars fasciitis in both feet.

Look into nursing shoes on the Internet. . You can find some at really good prices online and thier made to be worn by people who are on thier feet all day.. and thier getting to be pretty fashionable.

Good luck on your shoe hunt!

Oh Linda, I forgot that pair of Nursemates I bought when I worked. They were awesome. Thanks for the reminder about nurse shows! 🙏🌼

The sneakers, and shoes for that matter, that I've found the most comfortable, and I've tried many brands since being diagnosed with crps and fibro (plus a bunch of other things) 14 years ago is Abeo. You can go to their website or go to "The Walking Company" to try stuff on. They're not cheap, but they are very comfortable and very well made so they last. They have many styles available and each has a different fit so try different ones on.

I wear only New Balance Sneakers. I find that not only do they look awesome but they FEEL really good. As soon as you put them one, they feel already broken in and comfy.
