Feet Pain While Standing...


I have been wearing my normal nike shoes(similar to the ones pictured above) lately…and my feet start to kill me if Im standing all day…so much so that I literally have to sit down…some times the pain goes into the next day…

so I recently started wearing my gym shoes(converse flat sole) outside the gym and everywhere else. I get no pain at all and can stand all day…

any idea what’s going on here???

ps: I do no cardio…so im just talking about walking and standing…

these are what im wearing now…I get no feet pain at all when standing for hours on end…

What’s wrong with wearing those, at any age?

Anyway, I believe it’s because your all-stars are flat while the Nikes are “supported”.

If you don’t like wearing converse type shoes outside of the gym, I find Puma’s to be extremely comfortable, most styles are flat and look quite good too.

Umm…Chucks are like the coolest shoes ever made. What the hell is your problem?

My main question is…why would a shoe with no support keep my feet feeling good…while the nike cushioned shoe kills my feet?

I’m not trying to be an ass, but neon orange Shox aren’t exactly a dress shoe.
