10 Best Nike Shoes For Standing All Day in 2022

Standing all day requires both comfort and support. And who else can do it better than Nike, right? 

It’s a given - Nike running shoes aren’t just all bounce and style. They are also cut out for the perfect mix of both cushiness and stability, which is why they’re one of the finest choices for all-day wear. 

Every model you see on this list, we’ve handpicked ourselves. We walked in each of them to see how they perform and if they really are the cream of the crop.

How we test running shoes

Having our own RunRepeat shoe testing lab allows us to test and measure every shoe more thoroughly. On top of that, we clock up at least 30-50 miles in each shoe, giving us a solid background on its durability and performance. 

To assess other parts of the shoe, we also:

  • Slice it into pieces to see what it’s made of
  • Measure each part of the shoe via multiple parameters like breathability, flexibility, strength, etc. 

To find out how the all-day wear Nike shoes fare against other running shoes, we also calculate their CoreScore based on thousands of expert and user reviews.

It's loaded with lots of cushion that's not too soft nor too rigid, making it supportive and ideal for heavy runners. As a daily running shoe, it sticks to what it's designed to do - it's not going to make you run fast, but it does offer a smooth, easy ride.

If you desire that Nike swoosh and have less than $80 in your pocket there aren’t many options, but surprisingly this stylish trainer fits the bill and isn’t all that bad!

It can handle daily runs, long miles, and it doesn't do less in tempo sessions either. Even better, it's comfy and bouncy, generating a fun ride whatever the pace!

Pros

  • Excellent cushioning
  • Suitable for all-day wear
  • Wide platform 
  • Great stability
  • Snug and supportive heel area
  • Efficient landing and take-off
  • Eye-catching colorways

Cons

  • Poor breathability

Verdict

The Nike Air Zoom Structure 23 offers a different feel from its predecessor. It has a softer and more responsive cushioning but continues to provide a decent level of stability. This high-mileage Nike running shoe is not ideal for excessive overpronators because of its soft midsole. Also, the plush cushioning delivers an all-day comfort but users must keep in mind that it may feel warm on hot summer days.

Pros

  • Super cushioned shoe
  • High cushion to weight ratio
  • Responsive ride
  • Great looking shoe
  • Wide, stable sole

Cons

  • Sloppy fit
  • Lofted Flyknit is hard to clean

Verdict

The React Infinity Run Flyknit from Nike is a max-cushioned shoe that didn't weigh us down. Even better, it's a shoe that is soft, springy, and velvety smooth, easily making its way to our pick for slow long runs. For a neutral shoe, it's also very stable. Ultimately, it's not a shoe that wowed us, but it's a shoe we'd pick if we want a cruiser that's going to eat up miles!
