This is why I hate buying new dress shoes for work. Takes forever for the leather to break in and crease properly so it doesn't feel like I'm walking in cement. So what if my old shoes leaked water and looked 80 years old. They were comfortable dammit!

The alternative is to take em to a cobbler and have them stretched slightly.  It'll cost you a couple bucks, but they'll be far more comfortable.

As someone with bad feet (think: Bill Walton), I "feel your pain".

Damn "cobbler" sounds archaic.

Consider that all of you know what a cobbler is, lmao!  Umm, wait - me too, unfortunately.   icon_eek

How about buying your shoes a half size too large?  When they stretch, put an insole in, because dress shoes rarely have good arch and heel support.  If only Skechers made dress shoes...  disgust

I swear by Rockports. And by Off Broadway Shoes store (which sells big brand shoes but at a noticeable discount):
http://www.offbroadwayshoes.com/

I bought Rockport casual/dress shoes there and some sneakers last year, and they're by far the most comfortable I've owned. I kept thinking something was wrong with my feet, but I think I just spent too much time walking around in $20 shoes/sneakers I bought from Wal-Mart and K-Mart that kept wearing out in record time. I found if I paid maybe $50-$70 for something good (about what you pay for new games these days) there was much less pain.  thumbsup While it's possible to "break things in," I never felt really comfortable in shoes unless they felt fairly comfortable to begin with. My closet's full of past dress shoes that Never Quite Broke In.

While I haven't turned into Imelda Marcos  Fabulous, the fact you can bring back in a receipt for shoes you bought there, to get a discount on your next pair, can be enticing.  icon_smile

Get a pair of the ultra-thin Super Feet made for dress shoes....Super Feet make an shoe feel amazingly comfortable.  i used to always wear the Dressports, and they are wonderfully comfortable shoes no doubt, but Super Feet expand your options.

I have worn shoes with Super Feet for 7 years or so now so I speak from experience.

Amazon now sells Super Feet
