What orthopedic shoes are best?

I want to start to wear orthopedic shoes to support my feet, since I'm always on them throughout my day. Which orthopedic shoes do you recommend?

Ones that are comfortable
It can vary depending on anatomy of your foot. A good physical therapist could assess and recommend a specific type.
I prefer Hoka shoes for men and women. Other choices: For women runners: Asics Gel Kinsei 6. For support for women: Earth Women's Red Foot Walking Shoe. For men runner's Nike Air Pegasus +30. For support for men: Keen Men's Austin Shoe.
It depends on what you hope to achieve with your shoe wear. There are many excellent brands that I commonly recommend as an orthopaedic foot and ankle specialist. Hoka One athletic shoes are a great cushioned shoe. New Balance also makes a good athletic shoe. I often recommend SAS shoes for patients that need a good work shoe. Vionics and Birkenstock make great sandals and are helpful for patients with plantar fasciitis.
