Shoe Support

  1. I do apologize if this has been written before...but maybe one or two folks could reccommend a great pair of white shoes? I have seen several brands...but what feels comfy?

    Hi mKue,
    Yes, careplans are a real pain, and I'm glad I don't have to do them anymore, but they do teach us the proper form of nursing. Unfortunately, I didn't get to practice after I got my license. I had a severe anaphylactoid reaction to Niacin, a water-=soluble vitamin of all things. I had a CVA.
    Thst'd why I became an author.

    Duh! I had my fingers on the wrong keys when I typed the word, "that's." Thst'd makes no sense!

    I have a pair of New Balance white sneakers for school.
    I have white birkenstock clogs for work. I had the nurse mates clogs with the strap thing on them and I wore them for school and work and they heel cracked after five months and they were not that comfy for the price.

    I do not wear my nurse school or work shoes outside I leave them in my bag not just for germ reasons but also to extend there use. I think that is what did in the nurse mate clogs.

    A lot of my coworkers have had good luck with anywhere (?) clogs they come in cool colors as well

    For nursing school got a pair of Reebok princess. A great, classic shoe that comes in wide sizes and very comfortable!

    Go to Reebok store, get 2nd pair 1/2 price to wear since nursing shoes do NOT get worn elsewhere or even in the home!

    I've gone through quite a few different brands, but so far Dansko is the most comfortable one I've found. They are expensive, but they get me through my 12 hr shifts, so I think they're worth it.

    Hope this helps!

    To the people who wear Dansko's, I have a question. Do they have a removable footbed? I only wear clogs anymore, but have been wearing Birkenstocks because I need to use orthotics, and I pull out the footbed and insert the orthotics. I was looking at Dansko's in a catalog, and I like the look of them , but they don't seem to have the removable inner bed. But I can't quite tell from a pic in a magazine, and they do not sell them in any of the stores around here to try them on. Thanks!

    I wear Skechers for clinicals, and I really like them. They have a very thick sole. I have heel problems and lower back problems, and I can get through my 6 hour clinical with no problem.

    Also, they are relatively inexpensive. (around $40)

    Oh, Frances I'm really sorry about your CVA . How are you doing now? What kind of books are you writing? You can PM me if you want.

    Thanks, Marie

    New Balance are the best. Like most of you I'm sure you don't sit much. I work in a non-stop ER and am lucky to get to pee. I have tried Dansko's (got heel spurs), Birkies are okay but not made the way they used to be. I hear Skeechers and Merrils are pretty good too.
