    Where did you buy the soft footbed Birkenstock in white?
    From amazon. I know my size, so I looked up "birkenstock soft footbed" and that was one of the top dozen or so choices. I wore them the first time last night. They are birko's, which is a slightly different footbed, but still squooshy-ish. I think I like them, but I think they might not be an every single shift, type of shoe. I will alternate them with my black birkenstocks if my feet get overly tired. The arch seems, not as high or as firm as the regular birkenstocks.

    I overpronate and have plantar fasciitis. I bought a white pair of sneakers from Mephisto because theyre comfortable (expensive). But they didn't help the shooting shin pain and burning sensation I would get after 12 hours standing.

    I just started wearing Alegria Women's Debra Slip-On and I think I might be able to retire from nursing after all. I bought mine from the shoemall website, but a few online store carry them...

    Try Sketchers Snapdragon. They're very comfy and have great support, especially if you have higher arches.

    Without a doubt, Nursemates ~ Dove. I'm on my 3rd pair. Yep, they look like 'dorky' shoes, but I have happy feet!

    I love my Dansko clogs and I have narrow feet with a history of high ankle sprain, knee and back issues and Achilles tendonitis. One thing I would say is make sure to try them on, each shoe is a little different and I have three pairs in two different sizes because they can be different. I have been a nurse for 14 years and have tried every shoe out there with this being my favorite, that being said everyone needs to find their own but remember, you get what you pay for when it comes to shoes!

    I have thrown away some pretty pricey nurses shoes that didn't hold up in the comfort department. Now I most wear Nike New Balance with no problems at all - and I am up and running all night. I just bought a new pair of shoes though, Sketchers GoWalk...they are these little lightweight slip on walking shoes, and my gosh, they are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. I have not tested them at work yet, though...not sure how good they would be for all the floor pounding I do...and they are just thin leather on the tops and sides, and with the residents always running over my feet with their W/Chairs, that could be a problem. They might be better for nurses who are not always on their feet or running from room to room. I urge everyone to check them out, though - even for "real life". They truly are amazing. And very cute.

    Asics gel lyte iii. Works the best for me. They're a bit pricey, but well worth it.
