Been wearing the same shoes for about 25 years, Cabala's technistride walking shoe, a knock off of the Rockports with the small parallel ridges on a vibram sole. Low heel which seems to suit my very bad back and those soles were like standing on a half inch or more foam pad everywhere I went. Low top lace ups keep most of the stuff out, or did until I have worn these until they have side ventilation. While soles can be replaced I have worn these until the uppers are shot too. Neither Rockport or Cabala's seem to sell the shoe anymore and the only shoe I have found with that sole is a pretty heavy looking pull on shoe with the exact same sole that Red Dawg calls a slipper, must be a Canadian thing! Might give them a try except they have a large patch of elastic on the side of them and I don't like their chances for long term survival.
I asked somewhere about a year ago but can't remember where and a search didn't turn up anything. So, to stand on concrete for hours, work in the yard, everyday wear, what shoe? Easy on the feet, no huge tread pattern to track half the outside inside.
Thanks for any suggestions!
