Help Me Find Some Good Comfortable Shoes for My Husband!
For the past year I have been looking for comfortable work shoes for my husband. Every time I bring a pair home, they are not comfortable. Obviously the solution would be to have him go out and get his own.
I was wondering if you knew of any brands that are known for their comfort (and don't cost a fortune). He doesn't need anything special like a steel toe. He just needs casual/dress shoes for work.
Thanks so much!

Well gosh, only HE can find a comfortable shoe for hisself. LOL> stop trying. Whats comfortable for one person is not comfy for all. It also all depends on what exactly is uncomfortable for him. Maybe he just needs a good cushy insert, or perhaps he has a foot issue that requires orthopedic inserts. Its hard to say how to make him comfy.
Try a specialized shoe store like Good Feet.

sketchers are comfy and have some nice work type styles.
(and if he doesn't think the shoes u bring home are comfy, he should go try them on with you!) ;)

My husband wears the "Ecco" brand and has been very pleased. They will also re-sole/re-condition the shoes when they start to work out.
I wear MBTs... they have a men's line, as well. Not very attractive, but extremely comfortable.

Of course the solution IS for him to go out and get his own...they're his feet, and to get the right shoe requires an in-store fitting. Sneakers and sandals, not so much, but dress shoes definitely. Try S&K or Men's Wearhouse.

What is up with men and shopping? I don't particularly like shopping either, especially for my picky husband....but I do it any way! So really maybe I have the problem...haha. He never has shirts that fit right and he refuses to wear certain things that I bring home - I TRY - it's not like I am buying him clothes that he wouldn't look good in - and they are neutral colors! But, if the sleeves are short or the buttons aren't just right or the shoulder room isn't adequate, etc, they will sit in his closet...I even tried to go to Big and Tall sizes and then they were too big in the waist! I can't win...so I tell him to go to the store for himself and he won't do it - just complains how nothing fits or he has nothing to wear. Well, suck it up - I have been to the store for you even though I didn't want to, then back again TWICE to exchange clothes for YOU. So, if you want something to wear, go out and buy it yourself!
One thing that kind of worked though is buying him a gift certificate. I have done this a couple times and he will eventually go to the store to spend it. Maybe you could try getting him one for the shoe warehouse that has various brands that he can choose from. Also - whenever you two are out and about, trick him into just stopping in for a second....holding him hostage may sound like extreme measures, but it could work!!

redwings are great, although maybe not as 'dress' as you might want. i definitely echo everyone's recommendations for rockports. my husband loves 'em.
