What is a good brand of shoes?

My husband and I have no car so we walk wherever we need to go and he has ADHD so he paces a lot. I usually buy Walmart brand shoes for him but I have never seen them last longer than three months tops.

  • My husband buys merrells they last about a full year but they are VERY comfortable. I think a nice pair of new balance are a good investment and all shoes should be replaced after a year if they are used for heavy walking. A crosstrainer or walking shoe would probably also be the best for you I would not get a running shoe. I use to work for a shoe store and new balance were the best talked about for the best price.

  • I would get a good pair of Nike or Addidas on sale. If you do not want running shoes, I love Merrells.. they are really comfortable and last forever!

  • All mine are Nikes. They last a long time, which is why I like them.

  • Do they sell those at Payless? How much do they cost?

  • If you cannot afford a good name brand shoe then buy a good insert this will get you comfort for a better price - you will get about the same milage out of a Payless shoe as a Walmart shoe.

  • OK, so you want something from Payless? I looked on their site and the best ones from my experience are the Champion brand. My boys have worn them before and they held up really well. They have those buy one get one half off deals quite a bit so you can each get a pair!

  • They don't have to be from Payless. We have a Big 5 to.

  • Oh, yes.. Big 5 carries Nike. I am in CO so not sure of the price in your area... but I have seen them for less than $30 here!
