Comfortable work dress shoes?

Hello,

First poster here. I have been conflicted as of late. I currently have a relatively new job that forces me to stand constantly on hard tile floors for 7+ hours a day. Leather soled shoes aren't doing it for me, they are extremely painful in this environment. So I've been on the search for a truly comfortable pair of dress shoes for work, I am to assume only rubber-soled shoes would do the trick.

Does anyone here have any recommendations for a decently-built but extremely comfortable dress shoe? I am not looking to spend tons of money, but if it holds up for a long time then I may have to.

buy slightly above your true size, get dr scholls or something padded insert, have cobbler add thin foam layer to bottom of outside sole. makes a huge difference. all-leather shoes are totally incomprehensible to me
