Here is your quick guide to comfortable shoes that don’t compromise style.
Tsubo--we love this brand. Their shoes have a distinct look that is kind of sophisticated, yet futuristic. They aren’t for everyone, but they certainly are stylish because they specialize in offering supportive heels and wedges. Tsubo sneakers for both men and women are extra trendy and definitely comfortable. Tsubo shoes offer:
- Breathable leather lining
- Latex footbed for all-day cushioning
- EVA midsole for support, cushioned comfort, and shock absorption
Heels are multi-layered for support and even flats have hidden platforms for arch support. The pair to the right are stylish, versatile and comfortable for men. Both can be found at 6PM.com
Stuart Weitzman is a pricier brand, but really sets the bar for a well-made shoe. SW flats are flexible and usually offer padding and support. For many, flats can be the worst shoe to wear, but Weitzman makes his flats for all day wear. They do run a bit small, so it’s best to try them on, especially if you have wide feet. Weitzman uses a softer tanning process which makes all of his shoes more flexible. Supporters of the brand say that his heels allow you to be on your feet all day (or all night, as he specializes in evening wear). Check out Zappos for a complete collection.

All shoes are waterproof and guaranteed for six months. Made in Europe and Canada, quality is a top priority. Baby boomers love these shoes (any company around this age who caters to an older population is going to focus on comfort and practicality. After all, they are Canadian.
