Here's a topic that is fairly mundane and hopefully flame proof. Since us rookies will be spending the vast majority of the next two or more years on our feet, any sugestions for foot gear? As much as I like my J&M's, they aren't particularly comfortable and the leather soles probably wouldn't last two weeks on asphalt. Looking for a combination of comfort and durability, without looking like a total tool, if such exists.

I would suggest going to a shoe store and buying shoes that are comfortable. You had to post on the internet to learn that?

Maybe you could put some inserts in your favorite shoes.

I bought a good pair -- Ecco, I think -- that has held up well. You'll need two pairs. One for doorknocking, one for the office.

If you're prospecting the affluent, don't wear cheap shoes.  It's always noticeable and will say a lot about you.

There is a saying to the effect that after your eyes, your shoes are the next thing people look at. Notice what happends in an elevator -- everyone watches the floor. So I've always thought decent shoes were critical in making that first impression. The kind that have LEATHER uppers, preferably with thin soles. There's nothing like an English bench made pair of broguhs or Eye-tallian leather loafers -- in my opinion. .

 
In my previous place of employment, the insurance company with the red chair, shoes were another matter. Among the trainee annuity salesmen, the vast majority wore these things that as likely as not were made of some plastic stuff, or this hide like material that hardly resembled, let alone was, leather. They usually had soles that were about an inch thick and looked like styrfoam. They usually didn't have a heel, and some came with this velcro strap to keep em closed.

Get some white NIKE shox.  They look sweet with a black pin suit.

Yes.  If you're 85.

Buy some Allen Edmonds....you can send them back and have them recrafted after you wear the soles out. Much much more comfortable than JM or CH. Buy a brown Park Avenue and a black, you'll spend 600 bucks and that's all you need. Alternate them....

You both suck so much d***. I swear. I find it very hard to believe you are actually grown men on a message board and 16 years old. Very, very hard to believe.

I suppose it's possible, as anything is, but you both showed some true colors with that post.

HN,

You might want to consider buying shoes a half size bigger in case your feet swell up from all the walking. Don't spend a lot of $$ on shoes that claim to be comfortable. Like some said earlier in the thread, go to a place like Kohl's or TJ Max.

Good luck
