shoe recommendation wanted

Post by Turdacious » Wed Jun 19, 2019 11:16 pm

At my new job I work nights. What shoes should I wear? I’ll probably be doing a lot of lunges for exercise.

I love ECCO. Expensive, but damn comfortable.

If you're actually doing a lot of lunges, I'd just wear a cross trainer, like a NB minimus. Altra makes some day to day shoes that will have plenty of cushion for 8+ hours on your feet

I have these and they’re not bad.

I am at a convention today and people were bitching about shoes on the floors. A guy with new Vans raved about the new models that have cushioned soles, which is new.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

Will they make my feet bigger?

Wrestling shoes, that is obviously.

Also good for removing bees from walls.

These moccasin type shoes are incredibly comfortable and are good for everything from office work to trail running.

I just got some Altra Timps, but they are a bit too cushioned.
