We have a Journeys in austin. I will go and check these out. Sound like something I may like. Thanks!

A friend made me go try (santa cruz crocs) on WOW they are like getting your feet rubber well walking. If I am not working i think I may wear them. Not really liking the look but they so far (last night) feel great. Go try them on

I use redwings boots, last so far 3 years. Have used these for 10 years in construction, feet never felt better after a long day on my feet. Used to have real foot, ankle, knee, and back problems with other boots. Whatever brand you buy dont skimp.
