I managed my retail store and was up and down 10 hours a day, often for hours without sitting down. Then I married a nurse who introduced me to SAS Shoes. Wide round toe box, air holes for breathing, arch support, etc. I rotated two pairs for 16 years. Still have them. Bottoms are almost slick but tops are fine. Are made for people who stand on their feet at work. Worth every penny. Don't look clunky like work boots would when dressed for retail.
