Motion control-type non-sneaker shoes for men

Hi all, I have super flat feet and have had reconstructive foot surgery. The only kind of shoes that are comfortable for me to wear for long periods of time are motion control-type running shoes. Are there any non-sneaker shoes with similar construction and support? [more inside]

Why do "walking shoes" kill my shins and dress shoes feel great?

The shin splints questions seem to be mostly about running or comfortable shoes. But my issue is weird, I think. I walk to and from work (about 45 minutes each way) and I have been wearing my work shoes. [more inside]

We will not be de-feet-ed

What is the next step up, mainly in terms of quality and price, from Vans slip-ons that are similarly minimalist styled and comfortable enough for everyday wear? Looking for good quality, long lasting, simply-styled, slip-on men's shoes. [more inside]

Durable, utilitarian, repairable men's shoes?

I'm tired of buying $100 shoes which don't last any longer than the $35 shoes I used to wear. It's time to put the Sam Vimes Theory of Economic Injustice to work for me. What are some well-made men's shoes that I can wear every day to walk the two miles to my casual academic-environment workplace and back, plus wear at work, without them wearing out immediately? I should be able to get them repaired or re-soled when they do have problems. Under $500 would be ideal. [more inside]

Can anyone identify these shoes?

Can anyone identify these shoes? Or a style of shoe that looks identical? Doc martens look kinda similar but not the same.

Insoles for minor ball-of-foot pain?

I've been having some minor pain (about 1-2 on a scale of 10, and it comes and goes) along the ball of my right foot for the past few months, and I've gotten to the point where I don't think it's going to go away on its own without a change somewhere. [more inside]

Psst .... Beatle boot

For far too long I've coveted high-heeled mens shoes of the kind stereotypically worn by Beatles, mods, and (IIRC) many men hundreds of years ago. But just searching randomly for "winklepickers" or "cuban heels" tends to yield shoes that are, well, ugly, and I don't really see many options in stores. This is nice but I don't want boots, really. WHERE can I get, or at least look at, nice examples of men's shoes with some heel on them?

Small Size Womens Shoes

Does anyone have recommendations for small-size (around size 4, depending on shoe) women's shoes, especially in the Los Angeles area? My wife moved here recently from Japan, where her shoe size is much less uncommon and so it wasn't much of an issue. But in LA, it seems very difficult to find any stores that stock this size. For something like sneakers, children's sizes are probably an option, but for dress shoes / heels I don't think that will work. [more inside]

Boots similar to Tretorn Oken leather, but better quality?

I bought these Oken Leather boots less than a month ago, but the sole is separating at the heel. A bit of googling reveals quite a few complaints of that type,so I'm getting a refund rather than replacement. Are there any shoes with similar styling, but great build quality?

ShoeFilter: Help me find slip-on sneakers with fixed laces

Can these shoes be saved?

My lovely open-toed Camper shoe had an encounter with an unpaved parking lot resulting in a big gouge through the leather exposing the blue foam underneath. I took it took my local cobbler and all he could do was glue the sticking-out bit of foam down so it sticks out less. The blue gouge is still prominent. What can be done to repair/refashion these shoes? Considering DIY options but suspect I'd get better results leaving it to a professional. Pics inside. [more inside]

All I want for christmas is my two sparkle shoes

We are looking for the best shoes ever to give to a 2 year old boy for christmas. the idea is that it's practical for the parents (no shoes to buy for this round!) but that they can be fun enough for a child (lights? other weird somethings?) Shoes must NOT be lace up, bonus points for craziness otherwise. Money is no object, but we will probably spent around $60. Online ordering a plus. Thanks!
