Whatever you do, having comfortable shoes for long periods of standing is important. They can help you persevere and reduce pain. Discover our favourites.

Our days can consist of so many different activities, all of which result in us being on our feet for hours on end. Whether we are working in retail, teaching in the classroom or simply playing with our children, our feet have to endure a lot. In these situations, it's crucial to find the right shoes for prolonged standing that support us and provide the comfort we need.

What makes a good everyday shoe?

Choosing a good everyday shoe can make your day much more enjoyable, knowing that you'll be comfortable from morning to night! In our opinion, a few basic principles are crucial for the perfect shoe that will keep your feet comfortable all day long.

The first and most important factor is comfort. Uncomfortable shoes can make your day a misery, no matter what you have to do. Shoes for prolonged standing should regulate the temperature and maintain a comfortable climate regardless of the external conditions. Lightweight shoes make you feel like you're walking on air - who wouldn't want that?

Good support for your feet is also vital to keep you going throughout the day. Proper arch support can reduce pressure on your joints and alleviate the pain that would otherwise be felt at the end of a long day.

It's also important that you like the look of the shoes you wear most of the day. As you're constantly looking at them, they should suit you in every respect - especially their appearance. 

Waterproof shoes for long periods outdoors

For nature lovers, a reliable shoe that can withstand any weather is essential. Your footwear should protect your feet from the outdoor elements, be it rain, snow or sunshine. Many professions require you to spend much, if not all, of your day outside, so the right footwear is essential.

Our Wool Cross X Alpine is made from merino wool, known for its temperature-regulating properties. This natural fibre keeps your feet pleasantly warm in winter and cool in summer, while at the same time ensuring that you don't get sweaty feet even when working hard. These unique advantages make them the ideal companion for long periods of standing and walking outdoors!

Not only the temperature, but also keeping your feet dry is a decisive factor for all those who spend the whole day outside. The Wool Cross X Alpine is waterproof, which means it will keep your feet dry even in the rain! Even if the rest of you is already wet, your feet will stay warm and dry.

Shoes for long periods of standing at work

Many of you are looking for the best shoes for long periods of standing for professional reasons. Whether you work in retail, healthcare, teaching or in many other areas - if you spend most of your day standing, you need shoes that support rather than restrict you.

Comfort is the top priority here. Our Wood trainers are a fantastic and sustainable footwear option, equipped with a cushioned anti-blister heel. This makes standing for long periods of time a breeze. After a long day, you won't even want to take these shoes off - they're that comfortable!
