I recently started my first job and it was a lot harder than I was expecting it to be, not just mentally but physically as well. Its a lot of walking backwards and forwards constantly packing stuff away, I finished college 6 months ago and haven't done a lot of walking/excersice since so that could be an explanation?. I have 6hr shifts and after a few hours my feet are in excruciating pain and when I get to the last couple hours in I just cant take it and slow down because of how much pain i'm in. There is nowhere to take a break and sit down either so the only time I have to rest my feet is 20 minutes

Does anyone know of any good shoes to recommend that will take some of the pain away because otherwise, I don't think I'll be able to continue and its not an awful job in terms of what i'm doing. I'm just in so much pain.

My contract is only until the start of Jan so I dont want to spend a lot of money on a pair of shoes that will only be worn for a month. My budget is about 30-40 but may be willing to go up to 50 if necessary.

Either way I need to get some tomorrow asap so I can wear them to my next shift on sunday.

Any help appreciated

I need the shoes by sunday though so I would need to go in store, also it means i can try them out as i have quite small/wide feet.

Get insoles - cheaper than new shoes plus more likely to be supportive.

I have these and they allow me to walk all day with no pain:
