I wear Sketchers. Never had a problem with them hurting my feet on my trips. I've recently started wearing Croc flats to work. I work on my feet on a concrete floor 9+ hours a day and they work wonderfully for me. We are not allowed to wear sneakers and I've gone through so many different brands of shoes it's crazy how much money I have thrown away on highly recommended dress/casual shoes. Wish I had tried the Crocs years ago. I will be taking some on my next Disney trip.

Just Google "Nike Free" or "Jordan RCVR"...2 of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn...They are lightweight, very soft cushiony feel and very breathable so your feet don't get too hot...I'm not an expert but i have over 250 pairs of sneakers and these are 2 of the best...The Nike Free come in lots of colors and are also good for building leg muscles and strength because they conform naturally to the foot and your walking motion...The Jordan RCVR comes in a few different colors and has a lots of cushion and is built with mesh so they are very comfortable, lightweight, and let your feet breathe...I know they are sneakers but if you are walking in the parks or just walk a lot at work or for excercise you need something that is going to feel good on your feet, and makes you comfortable without having to worry about getting sore or hurting your feet...Hope this helps

Skechers GoWalk are my new faves. I have them in 3 colors, brought two on our last trip to WDW in December (they are super light weight, so easy to pack). Wish I had brought all 3 pair. Wore without socks and my feet don't sweat in them.

I have the Skechers Go Run and LOVE them. I am looking into the GoWalk for Disney also! Great shoes in great designs and colors!

i live in my fitflops in the real world- have flipflops, sandals with an ankle strap, trainers and boots. they are seriously the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned and I have problem feet. They come in a great range of styles, so look pretty and are comfy- which has never happened before. Been on city weekends, where i have easily spent 12 hours on my feet walking for miles and never had a problem. they even hold up to 12 hours shifts in work standing on cold hard floors, running up and down stairs. I am off to the world next week, and am taking along a pair of fitflop flipflops, a pair of sandals and travelling in my boots! I am a walking advert!

I wore Crocs Patricia wedges and a sandal similar to Sanrah at WDW last time. My feet felt great and I wear these all the time at home. I love that they can be easily washed too.

I thought I'd come back to update this thread and review the shoes I've worn to Disney!

My highest recommendation goes to Crocs. I have two types of crocs...one is a sandal with a strap just above the toes and one over your instep -- these are by far the best for hot weather -- I wore them for hours and hours and they were perfect, airy, soft and cushy, and light as air. In colder weather I bring my light blue or light green boat-shoe looking Crocs. The bonus about these is that the insole pops right out, so I would take them out and stick them in my high flat suede boots, which made them totally comfy to walk in all day too (although they had no comfort factor of their own the Croc insoles worked miracles and allowed me to look a little more fashionable at times.)

I would give second place to my Teva sandals -- again, they are airy and light and I can walk a long day in them. They don't have quite the same cushioning as Crocs, but they look more like a normal sandal (mine are leather with cork soles) and again did not rub or cause any blisters.

Third place for me goes to Toms -- I tried them for the first time last trip and they were great. I was very happy with the way they hugged my feet and I alternated wearing them barefoot or with sockettes.

Fourth, but still great, are sneakers (runners, cross trainers etc) -- they are lower on my list because I prefer open shoes and bare feet whenever possible. I am also not a big fan of the look of sneakers with a lot of clothes, so although I know that comfort is THE MOST important factor, if I have another option that offers the same comfort I'll take it.

Fifth were my lovely warm hush puppy flat boots, furry inside, which came along for our January trip. I thought I might not wear them much, but it was cool enough on a few evenings to wear them. I wouldn't have wanted to spend the whole day in them (unless I had my Croc inserts!) but they were great for a partial day.

I also think it's a good idea overall to rotate shoes, I find that alternating shoes gave my feet a break -- if I felt pressure in one area after a day of walking it helped to switch to a different pair the next day.

Happy walking everyone!
