    so i am an ear harvester which requires me to stand for long periods of time. after a while of standing my back starts to hurt. what is the best fairly inexpensive shoe you all wear? im looking maybe around the 60-70 $ mark. im in desperate need of some nice shoes to wear. Those crocs dont help at all.


    thanks

    tried the inserts, they dont do anything for me. jsut breifly looking i did see the Danskos and Rockports. I also saw a brand called Shoes for Crews? anyone know of these? any good? they seem to have some inexpensive stuff which is why i was wondering.


    thanks guys

    Hey Aaron,

    I'm not exactly sure what an ear harvestor is....

    Do you stand in the same spot primarily?

    If you stand in the same spot/s - look into buying some of these also:
    http://www.floormat-store.com/industrial-mats/saddle-trax-979.html
    They're expensive - but well worth it and will save your back!!

    If you are employed by a company (vs self employed), INSIST that your company buy some of these mats. Tell them its a safety/ergonomics complaint. We have them all over the place at our factory. They're an additional support to standing on solid concrete all day.

    Yeah the floor mats work wonders here in our data center. You wouldn't think an inch of foam could help.

    i am constantly on the road for this job. i am never at one spot the whole day. I do stand in one spot alot though. the mats would be great but since i have to haul a bunch of other stuff through the hopitals and funeral homes, it wouldnt be very practical. good idea though! might get one to work on the bikes at home!

    my wife loves her birkenstock clogs with the cork insole. The cork settles in and grows more comfortable the more you wear them.

    im kinda liking the merrell jungle mocs. i have had a few pairs of those but was too long ago to remember. plus i was around 12 or so. they just seemed like another pair of shoes at the time. lol... looks like i will be taking a trip to the mall tomorrow. i heard that the Dansko you have to be carefull cuz you can roll your ankle or something like that if you are not careful.
