    Yeah, what klark sez, the Adidas Stan Smiths are really nice. I tried on a lot of shoes at a lot of different stores and wound up going with the Smiths.

    Everyone will tell you the ones that you should get, because they were so comfortable (on them). Also, you will hear about really horrible shoes to avoid (again, on them).

    The feet in question, however, reside at the bottoms of your own ankles, and you are the best judge of what feels comfortable and for how long.

    I WILL tell you, though (I posted this somewhere else here, same question give or take): expensive shoes are not necessarily more comfortable than cheap ones. Can go either way.

    Test drive a few

    wannabe,

    get the finest italian leather shoes so you can soak up all of the poopie that falls onto them and you can track it into your house. That way you and your family get to build up your immune system.

    I have found that dickies sandwashed scrubs are extra comfy.

    I wish every program wasn't so picky about shoes. I understand that it is helpful for scrubs to be color coordinated so that it is easy for employees in the clinical setting to identify you as a student, but they need to leave a man's shoes alone. What difference does it make?

    Thanks for the link! I think I'll try out a pair of those. They look comfortable and not too horrible.

    As far as scrubs, I'm partial to Landau. They cost more but they hold up better than other brands IMO.
