Need business shoe with a good balance of shock absorption and firmness

I have been wearing Rockport World Tour shoes for the past 20 years (I’m a male). Looking for a business shoes with similar mix of firmness and shock absorption in the mid sole.

I have been wearing Rockport World Tour shoes for the past 20 years (I’m a male). The shoes work well for my hypermobile feet. They have the right amount of firmness and shock absorption. I’m looking for a business shoe (something I can wear with a suit) that has similar properties. Most of the business shoes I have tried either have a spongy feel to the shoe (which doesn’t work for my hypermobile feet and ankles) or have a rock hard feel with no real shock absorption. Can anybody help me out with a suggestion for a suitable shoe?

If you've been happy with the Rockport World Tour, how about some other Rockport dress shoes?

I wear the World Tour in black with suits, but I'm in California. Is there something you want that you don't get from the World Tour?

These Doc Martens from the Soft Wair line are really comfortable out of the box and might work for you

Perhaps give Ecco a try, they sole most of their men's dress shoes in a similar material to rollerbade wheels.

I really like the pair I bought the previous Christmas and the sole and full grain leather have held up fine.
