I have a pair of Skechers sandals taht I blisters but no arch support either. I also have worn Lands End Mary Jane Trekkers for the last several years, on all day trips to European cities, with tons of walking...they are awesome! I took the insoles out of a pair of Clarks Privo shoes and put them into the Lands End and it was even better...

I take my Fit Flops and Born sandals. Just make sure you have them well broken in first.

I had to go look up fit flops because I had no idea what they were. I definitely think I need to try a pair of these!!
A pp asked where to buy? I used the sites store locator and found Macy's carries them -- the other locations near me were local stores only.

Crocs are the only shoes I can wear for that long, doing that much walking.

For me, it is my good old nike cross trainers. They are the most comfy, no blisters, and my feet NEVER feel tired in them. They don't look very chic, but they feel great.

I use to do runners, but my feet were hot and tired. Now for WDW days I have a nice pair of North Face walking sandals. They keep my feet cool, they dry fast and my feet don't get tired. For non-disney days I were flip flops to give my feet a different support and feel. Good luck!!!

still using my good old running shoes, it's the only place that I don't care that my shoes are 'in fashion' with the rest of my outfit, we like to walk fast! I have tried some of the walking sandles, but still end up uncomfortable without the good support and wearing socks seems to help.

Bare Feet sandals - mine were about $45 and they were heavenly! They are leather, but were dry (after Splash Mountain where I was the most soaked person on the boat) in about 30 minutes. (We made a full trip around the park on the train and they were dry.) I did have to replace them after the trip, but I plan to buy another pair for March.

I love my Crocs in Disney. They are so comfy. I have weird feet and usually need my running shoes with my orthotics to do that much walking, but on our last trip the Crocs won hands down. Gotta be comfy when treking around the "World"!

Thanks guys. I think I will stick with my Merrils this trip and Maybe dig up my running socks.

I notice a LOT of people like Crocs. I have always stayed away from them after all the escalator incidents, but they are so cheap now. Are they really that comfy?

My favorite shoes to wear to Disney are the Crocs "Cleo" - they are just so comfortable to me. And not as unattractive as the standard crocs

Keens or New Balance Walking shoes. Tried Crocs the one trip and they killed my feet. Use them only for running the garbage out or to get the mail now.
