A big one... my husband prescribes these innersoles that are also used as preventive maintenance along with being for already sore feet. They are made by Foot Leveler.
Yep .... with you on this one, too. I had foot surgery a few years ago and now I have trouble buying shoes because I have to allow for space for my inserts that I paid $342 for. But I have (had) jobs where I have to stand for 4 to 8 hours straight (hotel; retail sales; not counting my cake/catering;etc) and I can do it. I still wear, as you say, ugly-a$$ shoes, but it's sure better than feeling like I'm standing on a bed of nails! (Since my foot surgery, I can't even go bare footed ... I have to wear at least a sock. Makes going to the pool an adventure!)
