When it comes to the best shoes, finding the right fit is essential, but comfort reigns supreme. And according to the professionals, there are a few brands that fit the bill in terms of support and all-day comfort. Board-certified podiatrist Ernest L. Isaacson, DPM tells Yahoo Lifestyle that the best shoes simply fit and feel good. “Most feet feel better in a low heel or something with good arch support, preferably a custom orthotic, so try to avoid anything too flat or flip-flops for long walks,” he explains.

As far as fit goes, Isaacson says it’s important to make sure there’s “plenty of room for the true width of the foot” which you can determine by standing up at the end of the day when feet are swollen. Isaacson recommends New Balance sneakers for comfort and support, especially for those with wide feet.
