I am hard on sneakers due to the fact I am a security guard. My feet hurt me at the end of the day. Does anyone know a good pair of sneakers that will help? I know that there are diabetic shoes out there. Are any of them good?

Have you tried nurse shoes? Nurses are on their feet all day. There are sneaker styles, some are a little pricey, but works wonder for your feet and ankles, since you walk and on your feet all day. Sketchers have nurse shoes, you can google or try to find a local shop where you reside.

I usually stick to New Balance, Skechers (which never last long enough, crap shoes) and Nikes. New Balance last a long time.

That is what I need a shoe to last a long time.

Give NewBalance a try. Even the walking ones as opposed to running last a ton for me. And they're super comfortable and nicely padded.

Steer clear of those stupid shape ups.

If you need new sneakers every two months you may be wearing them out way too soon and walking too hard! Might be time to see a podiatrist and get some orthotics built for your sneakers!

sounds like you need something more than what I buy. Good suggestions on here. I wear New Balance, did not know NB had a diabetic shoe. I just bought a new pair today at Sear's great sale going on. I got a pair for $34.99 and I have heard Dr. Scholls are good for diabetics, some of them anyway. I have never tried those.

How do they feel? I will look into that. I know i am so hard on my sneakers that i need to but new ones every two months.

I buy the New Balance diabetic sneakers with the roll bar soles. They prevent your feet from rolling over to the side and allow your feet to stay in the right position. The style I buy is the 854 series and they cost me around $90. This is the only shoe that I can wear that my feet doesn't turn outward as I walk. Hope this helps! You can find them I believe at I buy them locally where I live though!

I work on my feet and the best shoes I have found are Brooks. I get them at a locally owned sporting goods store but I am sure you can order them off the internet.

I would go to a specialist and get fitted. I found out I am flat footed and over pronate when I walk. I needed motion control shoes and arch supports. It makes a world of difference in how my feet feel and my activity tolerance!

i stick with nike crosstrainers- nkies are more padded inside, they're the only shoes i've found that don't make the nerves in my feet go crazy!!

Hi. I was a dental assistant and I know about sore feet! Do you know what shoes actually helped me? Crocks! They are super light and provided enough support and really really helped! I know there ugly but gosh they really worked for me! You can usually find them in uniform stores in all colors! I wish you the very best and go to a medical/dental uniform store and check these shoes out. They really work and are very affordable.
