Ouch, my dogs are barking!

Any suggestions for a really good anti-fatigue mat? New work space is concrete floor and by the end of the day, my feet hurt!

I think I bought mine from Uline Co. You might also try Grainger, or possibly some of the tool companies such as Lee Valley or Rockler.
Rebecca, Next time you are across the border, stop at Home Depot. The anti-fatique mats are in the "Floor and Wall" dept (carpet, wall paper, tile, etc) they are 36"x36" approximately, with a French riffle key along two sides [positive and negative] so that you can build as long a mat as you want or need. They are $19.96/section US, and their SKU is #136-069.
Hope this helps.
Save enough on the mats and you can start thinking about that Prius.

Don't forget that they can be doubled up for extra cushion. I have the standard industrial pads with the Home Depot pads on top. Very soft.

Dr Scholl's makes a very good orthotics shoe insert as well.
Also, Lowes sells the anti-fatigue mat on a roll. It is 36in wide and as long as you want. We us them at both stores. The Home Depot ones interlock. If you want to cover a large area, that would be the way to go.

I like the Dr Scholl's hiking boots. They don't last as long as other brands, but they sure do feel good on your feet.
Thank you all for your suggestions. I do use good running shoes, but I think my age is catching up with me :eek: .
