When I was in a more corporate world Ariat dress boots were my go to. Ankle high pull on. Work well with jeans or slacks, and have a good footbed/sole construction that provides plenty of comfort on concrete.

Buy almost any "walkers". I wear New Balance, have for decades. Add inserts if needed. I was wearing "dress boots" and had horrible foot pain from the plantar faciitis. Went to a doctor and he referred me to a guy at Foot Locker. I literally limped into the store and danced out (figuratively;-)

Believe it or not, Skechers make some nice work shoes that are very comfortable, have great support, stylish, and not terrible expensive either, $120.00 a pair.

Keen. Nice shaped footbed. But every foot is different. I like Keen because I have a high instep. I wear Ariats when I’m not at work.

I'm surprised to see a bunch of Ariat guys in here. I didn't realize they were so popular.

I wear Ariat heritage square toes at work myself, or Vibergs if I feel like lacing something up.

These guys have have a nice variety of shoes that have a changeable orthotic insert that fits your foot. They aren’t cheap, but aren’t really expensive, compared to most shoes..

They have men’s & women’s shoes, from slaps to dress, seem to be well made and fit well. I noticed an immediate change in foot pain that had previously left me hurting pretty bad. Apparently my last few pairs of shoes were causing problems that were killing my feet. Apparently the Sperry’s with the new liner don’t offer the same support the previous ones did. Abeo has a boat shoe too, that doesn’t look too bad, that I might try sometime.

Plantar Facitis sucks. Battled with it for a year. Now I often stretch. Getting out of bed sucked.

I wore Danners for over 20 years. I made the switch to Merrill boots and I love them.

2-3 decades. I save the AEs for when I am exclusively in an office environment, and wear my Rockport's on days I can be between the office and construction job sites.
