Thread: Barefoot Work Shoes

  1. #1

    Barefoot Work Shoes

    I am currently experiencing some mild achilles tendonitis. I have found that the shoes i currently wear to work seem to make it worse during the day. I have also found that walking around during the day wearing either Crocs or just my socks seem to make my achilles feel a lot better, and generally feels more comfortable.

    Problem is, walking around an office with Crocs (with a few blobs of paint) or just socks on isn't really acceptable. Does anyone have any suggestions for some slightly more professional alternatives?

    I wear vivo barefoot aqua (in black) to work a lot for exactly that reason. When they finally wear out, I'll probably buy some of the oak model as they are a little more "shoe"like.

    We have a pretty casual dress code so I wear an old pair of Inov8 Roclite 285 with jeans quite often. Those new black Flite 190 look ideal for an office shoe to me

    i wear the vivo aqua too,which are very comfy and were bought from tk max.
    the only problem is that they look like the old clarke polyvelts(remember them).
    my boss took a double take when he saw me wearing them,
    and shook his head,mumbleing runners!

    I wear a pair of vivo oaks, which not only are the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever worn, they are also on sale at the moment!

    I have a similar dilemma but I don't think I have much chance of finding a flat soled minimal safety boot
