    Get some Crocs at Eastern Sporting Goods or other hiking/camping type store. They're $30. Also Target has cheap knockoffs of Crocs for only $10d & I love them too. No sore feet & they're very light.

    Dankso's. There are about $100, but they can easily last you 3-4 years. I love mine. You can get them at Tafford, Bootleggers, Lydia's to name a few. Another choice is birkenstocks's, but I prefer the Dansko's. Most of the nurses I work with wear them.

    after several pair of nursing shoes, i found that sketchers running shoes are the best for me......they have extra cushining to asorb the shock of being on my feet for 8-12 hrs and my feet don't hurt anything like before when i wore rockers.

    I'm not a LPN, but can I say, go for the crocs!!! I am telling you, you will not be sorry. 12 hours and no sore feet, believe me, I love mine I wear them all the time (cleaning after I leave the hospital of course) you can get them online, or at hallmark stores and Dillards (dillard's have the ones with no holes in the top) Also FYI, if you have any problems with your crocs you can email them and they will either send you a new pair or send you the part to fix them.

    Coils are pretty comfortable shoes for those of us you are on our feet all day. You can get them at a specialty store like healthy step. Granted they look pretty funny cuz they have these springy things on the heels but you can get ones that have that covered so you can't see the springs. They are really good on the heal.

    I love my Birkenstocks. I wear Birki's at home and work. I never have tired feet. I used to wear a good quality nursing shoe from a uniform shop and oh my aching feet by the end of the day, they literally burned. I've heard Dansko's are good also. Croc's scare me, there have been alot of nurses trip while wearing them.

    I second the Dansko's. I have a couple of pair, one good thing is no matter how sweaty your feet get, these shoes do not have absorb the odor. They are very comfortable and they last for years. Worth the intial $$ you pay for them.

    Hi and gosh, you sure made me re-visit "memory lane", Smile. When I first entered nursing school, waaaay back in the day we all wore what was called back then, Nursing Clinics. The old fashioned white, lace "old lady-type" shoes. Boy, they were the most comfortable shoes I had ever worn in my 18 years on earth (back then, smile, when I first entered nursing school). If I remember correctly there was like only one store in NYC that carried them, right across from Macy's on 34th street......
    Okay, sorry I am back now! Why not try these websites:
    www.allheart.com and www.uniformdiscount.com
    I saw on one of them what appeared to be the old type of shoes I have been looking for: Nurse Mates Louise Shoe. I never wore sneakers while on duty (I thought they look so unprofessional) but this is my opinion! I have worn white Earth Shoes (anyone remember them?), and clogs. Lots and lots of clogs. I used to alternate between the clogs and my old fashioned clinics.
    Anywho, good luck in your search.

    Most Foot Locker stores and sporting goods stores sell New Balance sneakers. A white pair of these is usually acceptable for clinical rotations as long as they're leather. Also, they're so very comfortable.
