    call me crazy (i usually am, ask anyone i work with here) but i usually wear shoes the same color of my scrubs... i usually have sneakers like those cute pumas, rebooks, nikes, etc... i like to mix and match them same color as my scrubs, kinda fun...

    Any birkenstock clogs!! If you can get past breaking them in the first 2 weeks, they are wonderful!!! Can't go cheap when it comes to our feet!

    I love crocs, but I swear to God, I keep tripping over nothing when I wear them!! There must be something seriously wrong with me!


    I wear Crocs all day everyday. I tell everyone that my right leg is longer than my left because I trip all the time.

    Yup...I trip with my Crocs all the time. I've recently discovered Red Cross shoes--pretty good.

    I just bought Dansko clogs as I started an internship in an ER....my feet, legs, and hips were killing me after three 12-hour days!! I haven't tried them yet as I am so afraid that after forking over $115, they won't be the answer, but now I'm a bit more inspired!!

    And my daughter bought me Crocs for clinicals....they aren't bad for those 5 or 6-hour days, but my God I've tripped more times than I care to remember and am not allowed to wear them where I'm interning. Somewhere recently I read something about podiatrists questioning the health of those for our feet!!

    I switch around. I wear my Dansko's more than the other ones. I do have Crocs, they are okay but my feet don't really care for them after 8hrs. I do trip too. I thought it was just me.

    I have to agree with someone else Merrills are the best!!!! it's like walking on air!!!!! ahhhhhhhhhhh.........

    I think shoe preferene is for each individual. I wore atheletic shoes when I first started working and they put so much strain on my calves that I would get muscle spasms at night. ugggh!! Those were the worst.

    Good luck!! Try Dansko or Merrills!

    I work for Novant Health and the Crocs are now outlawed D/T so many people tripping and getting hurt. I am in need of new shoes, wearing the nursemates "Lauren". It is the only nm that I like but I have definitely worn more comfy ones, just can't remember, lol. Thanks for the input.

    Gotta go with the CROCS!!!!!!!

    After year and a half of PF and heel spurs, 3 cortisone shots, $500 orthotics, paying $100-150 for shoes, Crocs is what has done it for me.

    Praise the Lord!!!!!!!!!

    Crocs have actually been 'banned' where I work, but everyone is still wearing them anyways. I see people trip everyday when they are wearing them - it's not just a couple people.
    Why were they banned? Is it because of the holes in them???

    I went to a MD that does only feet and ankles after a bad recovery post foot surg and she told me to wear new balance 1122 and I WILL NEVER wear anything else. The 1st day I was pain free for first time in 2 years
    And believe it or not you can get New shoes Cheap on ebay you just gotta look.
