    I bought a pair of Dr Martens shoes about a year ago, primarily for work because I was sick of buying cheap shoes that fall apart. Anyway, after a year of wearing them 5 days a week, I still come home most nights with really sore, aching feet. The past few weeks I've been doing 10 hour shifts and the pain is crippling when it gets to the last hour or so - heels, arches and ankles!

    I don't have this problem with any other shoes that I own. Is this a known problem with Dr Martens? I know people say they take a while to break in and not give you blisters, but after a year, maybe my feet aren't built for Dr Martens! Does anybody have any other 'sensible' shoe suggestions?

    People still wear these BTEC crocs?

    Maybe they don't fit right. Because you don't have this problem with other shoes, it shouldn't be your feet. Personally, the only things I can wear for a long time are high top basketball shoes

    You shouldn't really wear shoes every day like they will wear down quickly ; I suggest you get some other shoes and alternate them
