shoes for clinicals?

  1. 0
    For my school we have to have all white shoes with a leather top. I am not sure what brand to get or even where to get them. I checked at Walmart, payless and the shoe dept. If anyone has any suggestions Please feel free to tell me. (:

    I wore reebok low tops in white they were very comfortable when you are up on your feet most of the time during clinicals

    Shoes that don't kill your feet after wearing them 12+ hours are worth any price they ask. Which is why I went to a running store (a real one, not a mall wanna-be) and tried on 8 different pairs of shoes and spent time walking around in them and etc. I have heel spurs so I can't wear most shoes. Payless and Walmart are usually no good for me because their shoes kill my feet inside of an hour. I ended up buying a pair of all white Nikes for an outrageous amount of money.. and they have been worth every nickel. You get what you pay for.

    The best shoes I've found (and I have bad arches) are Propet Walkers in white. They're a washable leather and are super comfortable, give great support, and can keep me on my feet for hours and hours. I got mine several years ago at DSW for around $40-$45.

    The very best shoe I could recommend is Dansko's but they are pricey ($100+). Besides that you can find plain white Nikes that are pretty comfortable for about $40.

    I bought a pair of Cherokee Transcends Patricia clogs (looks very similar to a Dansko) at my local uniform store and they were about $65 on sale. They are very well cushioned and feel great on my feet.

    I do have a pair of Danskos professionals in black that I wear to my job as a waitress. They are a very well structured shoe but beware- they DO have a very firm footbed. My shifts at the restaurant last about 4 to 5 hours and while my feet feel supported, at the end of a shift they do feel pretty beat up. It's also hard to wear an insole in Danskos because it crowds your foot too much.
