I've been looking for a comfortable pair of shoes. I bought Red Wings based on the high praise here...the lack of a breathable toe box caused my feet to be on fire for my entire work day. I hate them. Anyway, I'm a barber, so I need something that will give me support all day while being comfortable at the same time. They need to be breathable and have a decent arch support. I don't care what they look like, I'm only going for comfort. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm seriously in pain here...thanks in advance.

Have you thought about getting custom formed insoles to put in a pair of shoes you already find breathable? That comes with the added plus of avoiding ugly footwear altogether. If that does not cut it, and you really dont care about ugly, you could try MBT shoes. As hideous as they are they supposedy work well.

I've tried the molded insoles from the podiatrist with minimal success. It's frustrating.
