I used to wear my crosstrainers when I worked in a coffee shop. They helped a lot. Maybe try to find a pair of shoes with lots of cushining and support from a sports store.

or maybe try buying some insole things for your shoes. Its a little cheaper that way but may not be as good as a new pair of shoes.

at my work i were skate shoes and some times end up standing for a good 7 hrs a day. what you should do is if you are standing in the same place alot is ask your employer about purchasing foam releif mat for you to stand on. they are very helpful for keeping your feet and back painfree. if they refuse to and it isn't impracitcal toget a relief mate ( i.e. floor that needs to be mopped constantly or soemthing like that) then maybe think about talking to the WCB then.

i got cat boots that i wear at work....but i hafta wear 'em...i dunno what you might wanna use.
one thing my parent's do, cause both work standing all day, dad on the ferries, and mum as a cashier, is put blocks under the foot of your bed, only inch high or so, lotsa relief, i did it when i first started in the yard, and it helped alot with foot pain.

Clogs. that is what I wear in the kitchen, they own cuz you can slip your feet out of them and you have to flex your toes to keep them on, stimulating blood flow, making for less tired feet.

When you are standing on cement floors, make sure you shift weight from leg to leg, or stand with one foot(leg bent) on top of the other, if you can.
