    My new favorite, Skechers Ultra Go air cooled. Comfy, cool, and cheap at Costco.

    What type of work does she do? If it is something where walking/running shoes are okay you've had plenty of good suggestions. If it is someplace that requires a more conventional shoe, the ones that I wear most often are one of my pairs of Clarks May Marigold Slip Ons. They are comfortable and the rounded toe is easy on the toes. :)

    If she is standing in the same place all day, get a soft mat that she can stand on, it is remarkable the difference it makes.

    I used to work retail midnights as a cashier decades ago. I could not believe how bad my feet hurt after hours of standing on a hard tile floor no matter what shoes I wore.

    When I mentioned it, one of the other employees took me over to housewares and got a rubber mat for me. The relief was incredible and immediate.

    I'm standing next to a nurse right now. Purple scrubs, wearing Hoka One One Clifton 7's in navy blue with pink/orange highlights. I asked how she likes them. She loves them!

    Brooks fot the win. The Glycerin model has the most cushion. I put 300 running miles on a pair then turn them into work shoes for several more months.

    Nope. I picked most of my ex Wife's shoes over the years and she reported that almost all of them were comfortable and they always looked good. She always got complements of her footwear.
    My new Wife doesn't need, nor does she want my input on her footwear. I'm ok with that.
    Check out Danskin, Solovair or this site. Beware, the Solovair shoes are a bit manly so she may object.

    I like Ecco for myself. They also make ladies shoes. They are known for being comfortable. They were originally made in Denmark but no more. They come in European sizes.

    STOP ! don't do this ! give her the Money and let HER pick out her own shoes ! very very few straight men are capable of buying shoes for women - don't risk it just let her Shop !

    Need more info. Going to be a much different recommendation for a nurse versus a stripper And @G30SF/F-250 will probably need to see a picture of the feet to help too

    I do like to see feet with nicely painted toenails unless it’s a dirty girl then they usually have chipped toenail polish, a toe ring, and cheap leather anklet.......

    Either is fine really....

    I’ve got some foot problems. I like New Balance. Especially because it is hard to find 4E in other brands b
