MODERN SALON asks our Facebook fans: What are the best, least painful shoes to wear on the salon floor all day—while still maintaining some style?
Yvette Feekes Have to say Dansko. My first pair looked alarmingly like Dutch wooden shoes from the Tulip Festival, but the latest ones are actually nice looking.
Chasity Bogard Dansko...not the cutest but they have helped with the leg and back pain.
Caitlin Hopper Blowfish flats! They are inexpensive and super cute!!
Arwen Mimosa Wedges are comfy and easy to walk in!
Torrey Scott for the guys: skater shoes (not to dressy, and normally has a little of support) I prefer Supra Footwear or even Vans. If you're a little more dressy then ECCO Shoes all the way.
Maria Godino Sketchers Share Ups... not the best looking but comfortable.
Candace Rickborn Nike shocks. Not high end fashion but my pick on extension days!!!
Deirdre Flannery I live in my Borns at work. They have everything from flats, heals, wedges to boots. I can run a 12 hour day and not be in pain.
Cindy L. Rolenc Aerosoles are the best or Impo are also my favorite for comfortable stylish boots.
Corinne-Anthony Lam My husband swears by his Clark's. Good arch support and style
Ellina Manuel 5Finger Shoes now make SUPER CUTE Fur and Leather, Buckles and Bows, Chains and Bling- Boots ankle, calf, and knee length. 5Fingers are great for posture, you can even go mountain hiking in them! I'm a stylist who loves the outdoors, so I recently got my first pair of 5Fingers Fashion shoes. Try them I swear they are way worth the price!
Christine Michaud They don't have a tonne of style, but my favorite comfy shoes at the salon are a pair of black Birkenstock clogs with an enclosed back. They have lots of support and my feet never hurt when I wear them.
Tammy Schwieder I wear Fit Flop boots. Awesome support for standing 6 plus hours and somewhat fashionable.
Jen Thomas I've done Born, Ecco and Earth but can't find anything that shouts STYLE-however me limping at the end of the day doesn't either so I have to make choices.
Kristin Newman I've found wedges are great. I have been working in heels for years so my feet are usde to them but wedge heels feel the best.
Aubrey DiBenedetto I have a pair of Sam Eddlemen platform wedges. LOVE. You would think they would hurt but not one bit.
Susan Moore Love my Chuck Taylor's and they get better with a little drip of color lol of course with arch supports while standing on my Rhyno mat:)
Jennifer Croffoot Alegria shoes or AK sport dress shoes but most of all what is lots of support for your feet..comfy and support should come first before style esp. for long days! I've worked for 25 yrs.50 to 60 hr. weeks and have already had the vein surgery twice so take care of the feet and legs...
