Podiatrist Recommended: Comfortable Women's Dress Shoe...

 John Fluevog's - Together Hi Benatar.

I own this shoe and it is one of the few dress shoes that I can wear all day. It is almost as comfortable as my tennis shoes. 

It has a thick sole that is protective of the forefoot area, a chunky heel for more stability and the toe-box is wide and deep. The strap across the midfoot area also allows for more stability. Everything about this shoe is high quality and the craftsmanship is wonderful. The shoe is expensive but well worth it. I consider it my workhorse shoe and I find I can wear it through a work day into the evening.  

This shoe is recommended for:
*Plantar Fascitiis (Heel Pain)
*Mild Achilles Tendonitis
*Mild Bunions 
*Mild Hammertoes
*Mild Morton's Neuroma
*Mild Metatarsalgia
*Mild Osteoarthritis

This shoe is NOT recommended for:
*Hallux Limitus/Rigidus (limited range of motion across the 1st toe joint)
*Moderate to Severe Bunions
*Moderate to Severe Hammertoes
*Moderate to Severe Metatarsalgia
*Moderate to Severe Osteoarthritis
*Charcot Foot
*Diabetics with Neuropathy

I found this shoe in the John Fluevog store in L.A. and once I tried on the shoe I didn't even balk at the price. I had been looking for an excellent dress shoe for over a year and when I found this - the search was over! 

Rating: Excellent! 

Cost : $269

Hi. Your site is so helpful. Would love to see some selections of comfortable walking shoes that aren't sneaker types. I wear my New Balance almost daily but would love to find shoes to wear with capris or skirts. I can't really wear sandals for long periods of walking as I have hypermobile feet and need good support. I also have orthotics. Any ideas. Nora
