I work about 10-12 hours/day, on my feet, walking on cement, at a grocery store. I've worn Ecco Helsinki shoes for the past 8 years. They have been great, but lately they're feeling a little too tight. Unfortunately, Eccos do not come in wider sizes. They only come in their standard, but they say this should fit almost everyone. My feet are starting to get sore a bit so I'm worried about long term effects. Are there any similar branded shoes out there? When I bought my first pair, I went to Dillard's, told the guy that had been there forever what my needs were, and he sold me a pair of Eccos and Johnston and Murphys. The JM were alright, but I could feel the edge of the heel in the middle of my foot as I walked. Very annoying, and I ended up wearing them only once a week.
