My long-term supplier @ASICSamerica gave up on serving me with the gel I've been buying for many generations, so I give up on them, and I'm in the market for comfortable shoes suitable for standing at a for many hours a day. Suggestions?

One of my favorite commands: "btrfs device add /dev/sdd". Has saved my most valuable this and the other so many times.
