    I lost my job about 6 months ago, and I'm thinking about opening a local shoe store and featuring comfort footwear.  Anyone willing to share your favorite brands or trends you've noticed in footwear?

      Well they're usually not casual, but I have great luck with Nine West shoes. Their sizes fit my feet perfectly, they are moderately priced with good quality, comfortable, and usually look great too. American Eagle flats are along the same lines for me

      1. My favorite shoes are Nine West. They are comfortable, beautiful, and feminine.
      They are also unique. I can spot a pair of Nine West a mile away.

      2. Benjamin Walk-The brands are, Touch ups, and Colorful Creations

      Men's Shoes
      My husband wears Bally Of Switzerland-Though very expensive $300.00 and up, they are made from sheep skin and are very soft. But very beautiful

    Well, I wouldn't say they are "comfort" shoes, but I like wearing black Sketchers. They fit the role of casual wear, match my suit and tie for the business look, and they have the traction for hiking. They rock! big_smile

    For sneakers, I prefer Asics, I find them very nice. Perfect for running.

      As a child, I had to wear Clarks shoes and Hush Puppies ... very comfortable, but I wouldn't be seen dead in them nowadays smile
      As far as sneakers go, I find Reeboks to be the most comfortable (wear them only for work), even if they're not the most stylish.

      Not sure what you mean by comfort footwear - but I like Nike for Trainers - sketchers are good - but I don't like any sort of flats.  I'm sorry that you lost your job - I hope that you find exactly what you want.

      I would have to vote for the S.A.S. brand of shoe. Some may classify these as "old lady shoes" but I can tell you they are the closest things to comfort & durability I know. 

      They have different styles, too, that are trendy. I wear them, don't care what people say, it's necessary.  They are good!

      Also, the Drew manufacturer makes orthopedic-type shoes that ar built for looks & comfort.

      I like Timberland deck shoes as they're both comfortable and casual.

      I'm afraid I'll show my age here.  I like Clark's and Crocs.  There are far more styles of Crocs on their web site than you'll ever see in a store.

      I have foot problems, and I must be comfortable.  Sometimes I can wear Nine West and Naturalizer.  No high heels for me.

      I like the idea of opening a store with comfort shoes.  There are a lot of us Baby Boomers with aching feet.

      My most comfortable summer shoes this year were from Valleverde (Italian), not only very beautiful and flashy, but also wonderfully comfy. For fall and winter it would be Högl (Austrian), very good shoes, very high quality. Ara comes to my mind (German), have made a tremendous jump from old-ladies-shoes to chic and stylish.

      Actually, what I look most for in shoes (and a reason why I can hardly buy American shoes anymore) is a LEATHER INNER, which is more important than the outside of the shoe. Manmade inner is a no-go if you want a comfortable shoe (here I don't mean the sneakers with the textile inner). Anything that looks like leather, but isn't, is almost guaranteed to make your foot hot and sweaty and uncomfortable.

      Unfortunately, in the last 5 years or so, I have noticed that the shoes in the US more and more have their focus on being as stylish as possible, but not on the materials, and I would say that this fires back. By now, I'd say, European shoes are higher quality (especially Italian, they have always had the most wonderful shoes, but also Germans have caught up and make great shoes these days, like K&S or Tamaris).

      Oh, and Soefft, they're great too, good quality. And not to forget, Paul Green, always wonderful shoes with great leather finish on the inside and good arch support. Oh, and I forgot, Ecco are always good, too.

      If I (as an absolute shoe-affecionado) would be asked, I'd always look for the most comfortable, high quality shoes that are still chic and flashy. They don't have to look like comfy shoes normally do, they can be really beautiful and still be a joy to wear. And there aren't too many shops that seem to be specialized in that, I would drive quite a way to find one.

      I was the manager of a shoe store for 2 yrs in England and will tell you the trends in shoes are difficult to keep up with so good luck with it remember retail is detail.

      my brands are hush puppies because the are always so comfortable, and timberland boots because they always support your foot properly without causing any blisters etc.

      Specifically love wedges more than heels and I got tons of them back in my wadrobe. There are two one is a gift from a friend which is brandless and the other one is Anna Nucci. They are entitiled for their killer wedding heels, but firstly, their wedges design are simple yet nice for casual wears. What I like about them is they'll go back to their orgin theme thus there's a shimmery metallic texture to my wedges. *I'll post a pic in case no one understands. Secondly, it is really comfortable and for a few good months my feet has no pains or discomfort at all. Thirdly, it is durable and is still in perfect condition till today.
