    My husband wears Asics running shoes sometimes & he loves them too. I've dumped a ton of money into good running shoes, Mizuno's plus custom inserts for shock absorption and they actually are worth every penny...a little over $230 all said and done. I used to run prior to surgery and was trying to do it again, I can't run anymore but I wear the Mizuno's all the time and they're great BUT they don't make any white pairs in the style that works for me!! ugh!! lol!
    I will definitely try the Asics on, I will buy 2 pairs of comfy shoes to switch off from in the beginning so I love all these recommendations from you guys being you live in your shoes and scrubs!! The sales people just want you to buy what they have but you guys are the REAL experts!!
    Gray scrubs pants are actually a good idea being they would match with most tops and could be worn more often...I like that suggestion and in tall length is awesome! Thanks so much I REALLY appreciate everyone's help!
    I'm off to go shopping this morning but keep the suggestions coming please!!! THANK YOU!:redpinkhe

    Word of caution about Shapeups...I was their biggest fan and even had several posts on this board about how great they were. Well, they were great for the first few months. After that I started getting hip and neck pains. Now, I've had back and knee issues for years, but this is new. I did some research and lots of people have had similar issues with the Shapeups (google it and see before you buy). I immediately stopped wearing them and my hip and neck pain has disappeared. There are theories that they throw your body out of alignment with prolonged use.

    I agree they are like walking on a cloud at first, and I was so sad when I realized that mine were causing my pain, because to my feet they were divine!

    Very good to know...and that makes sense too being the point of these types of shoes is to throw off your balance a bit in order to activate your core muscles and different muscle action in your butt and legs that normally wouldn't occur with walking as your body attempts to find balance again. Good to know..perhaps they'd be good as long as you alternated with other shoes. Thanks for the info, I've got enough back issues don't need to add other issues! lol!
    Thank you!!

    Hi KGMM,

    So I'll have clinicals in the fall. From the research I've done on shoes I'm looking to try on Alegria, Asics, Dawgs, Nike Shox, Quark Pro Air II (all white), and Earth Shoes. Those are just some I thought looked good and from what I read online they all seem to be very comfortable too. Good luck on your search!
