    I work 4-5 12 hour shifts a week, and noticed that nearly everyone else on nights wore Nike Shox. I figured I'd give them a try, and I absolutely love them!! They are kind of pricey $65-100, but you can write them off on your taxes. They are the shoes that are built for runners, so they don't have seams inside the shoe to chafe your feet, and they fit like a glove while being very breathable. They usually have 4 rubber spring "columns" at the heel, and an airshock pad at the forefoot. I can stand on them all night, and my feet feel great. They also come in cool colors!

    I also have a pair of Klogz for when I get called to the OR from NICU, and they are comfortable, but not as much as my Shox!!!!


    BTW, Finish Line is one of the few outlet stores that sells them, but you can also try the website. www.nike.com

    are they sold at major department stores? I went to the website and they truly look comfortable to me.

    I wish I was allowed to wear sneakers at my job because those Nike shox are comfortable. I have a pair that I use to hang out in and they are like walking on air.
