New Student _ Shoe Question

  1. Hi, I'm in NC. Just had orientation for RN-ASN. Just wondering if anybody had recommendations for nursing shoes. Hoping for something practical but stylish and they must be ALL white. Thanks

    This thread had a bit of insight. I have co-workers who swear by Birkinstocks.

    They have large variety if you are not allowed to wear open back clogs.

    I have Danskos and I love them. They come in all colors, including white. Like birkies, they mold to your feet. They can be expensive but very well worth it.

    Many folks also recommend New Balance.

    I have been wearing my Z-Coils for 1 1/2 years now. No back pain whatsoever, feet in great shape. After 12 hours of pounding the cement floors, I am tired because of the milage but not because my legs (or ANY body part for that matter) hurts. They cost a bit but not as much as a hip or knee replacement, fittings for orthotics, shoes that orthotics fit in, and the orthotics themselves. No more chiropractic visits. No more pain pills. Very durable shoes and the coils can be changed out for new ones. http://www.zcoils.com will give you locations and price.

    Those have got to be the ugliest shoes I've ever seen in my life... :chuckle
