What Makes a Good All Day Shoe?

Choosing a great all day shoe means you can enjoy the day ahead knowing you’ll be kept comfortable from dawn to dusk! With lots of factors to consider, it’s important that you get it right. There are a few key elements we think are essential to the perfect shoe that feet will be happy in in all day.

The first and most important factor is comfort. If your shoes aren’t comfy, you’re going to struggle throughout the day no matter what you’re doing. Shoes for standing on your feet all day should be temperature regulating, keeping you at the right temperature no matter how warm or cold your environment is. Opting for lightweight shoes will make you feel like you’re walking on air all day and who doesn’t want that?

Giving your feet the right support can help keep you going all day long! Having shoes with the correct arch support is also critical when you’ll be in them all day. This can help relieve pressure on your joints, reducing the aches and pains you might experience at the end of the day!

Another element that goes into shoes that are ideal for spending large portions of the day in, is whether they suit your taste. When it’s something that you have to wear and look at all day, you ideally want to love every aspect - especially how they look.

Water Resistant Shoes for Standing Outside All

For those who enjoy spending time in the great outdoors, you’ll want a shoe that can be your partner through all weathers. Come rain or shine, your shoes are there to keep your feet protected from outdoor elements. Many jobs also require you to be outside for a large part, if not all of the day, and so finding the right footwear is a must. Finding a shoe that is temperature regulating will ensure your feet enjoy optimal comfort.
