If you had to stand for 8+ hours a day ....

Would you go more for comfort or cute when it came to footwear? Would you wear heels?

Im with you on this one 

Quoting MsMimna:

OMG...Trust me on this.....I worked in Fine Jewelry....and you are expected to dress up. After the first few days of trying to impress by wearing heels and standing 8 plus hours.....you will be looking for Cute Comfortable with Insoles for Extra Cushion !!

It depends upon what you are doing.  I teach part time and heels really aren't appropriate when doing playground duty.  If you work in retail, it may be a requirement.  I also go comfort first because having sore feet sucks if you have a choice.

No heels are not a requirement. I wear ugg like boots and super comfy loafers most days.

 Bare foot.  I wear socks at home but prefer to be bare foot.  I keep a pair of sandals in the car for those times when I nip out to the store and realize I am barefooted.  I fall over if I have type of heels and that includes sneakers.  IF I could stand up for 8 hours, that would mean I would be in Heaven and I probably would be wearing Fredrick's of Hollywood kitten heel mules with red feather boa's on them.  lol

I stand for 8-12+ hours a day. I go for a nice pair of Dansko's. Be nice to your feet now and they will be nice to you when you are older.. lol Plus heels throws your whole body off balance, giving you more than foot pain later on in life. =(

Comfort and cute don't have to me mutually exclusive - I have tons of adorable ballet flats, wedges, and boots that are comfortable to wear all day. I don't normally choose to wear heels for long periods of time anyway due to an old ankle injury.

Def comfort. I've tried heels before when I stood on my feet for long periods of time and my feel were killing me by the end of the day. So never again I will get some cute flats and Call it a day
