There are many professions out there today where the hours are long, and they can’t all be spent sitting down, unfortunately. In fact, there are countless jobs today where people are required to be standing all day long, and needless to say - this isn’t very good for your feet.
If you are involved in long hours where you are constantly on your feet, you will know all too well about that feeling of ‘foot fatigue’ as well as general discomfort.
Given that your entire body weight is supported by your legs and ultimately your feet, this can prove to be quite stressful and uncomfortable for your feet over time.
There are some tennis shoes however that can help to combat these feelings, as I’ve looked into here.

What To Look For
With hours and hours of pressure running straight into your feet, you need a pair of tennis shoes that are comfortable and supportive.
These are the two main features that are absolutely critical to counteract the feelings described above and believe me, I am speaking from experience here.
My previous line of work may be a little different from many of you reading this, but the fundamentals are the same.
Having coached tennis at both private and public clubs throughout my life, I would like to think that I know what a long shift can feel like!
If I can remember correctly, I think my longest spell of teaching on the court was around 12 hours in a row, which is fairly stressful on the feet.
I used to suffer horribly with blisters when I was working these kinds of shifts, and my feet just constantly felt fatigued.
This is why I believe that it is super important to find a shoe that offers significant support, plenty of padding (especially in the sole and heel), and are generally comfortable to wear.
Let’s face it, you don’t want to wear a pair of tennis shoes that are rubbing your feet or don’t feel quite right for 12 hours a day or more.
Based on experience, I do have a particular shoe in mind that worked really well for me during those long days, so I would hope that they work for you too.
Recommendation For You - Babolat Propulse Fury All Court
In my opinion, Babolat deserves a lot more credit than they currently get for the quality of their shoes. Many people only think of brands like Adidas, Asics, or Nike when it comes to tennis shoes, but Babolat has a few phenomenal pairs - especially the Babolat Propulse Fury All Court.
There are some key reasons why I have selected these shoes in particular.
- First of all, the sole is extremely thick as you can see from the picture, which reduces the pressure and vibration running through the bottom of your feet.
- Secondly, and this is something that often gets overlooked, is the fact that the shoe tongue is wide and quite flexible, so it won’t rub on the bridge of your feet.
- Finally, the back of the shoe is slightly raised and reinforced, so even when you get tired and your natural posture may change, this shoe kind of comes to the rescue.
