    Hey there, I'm a new CNA I and I just had my clinicals in Raleigh, NC last month. I had bought a pair of New Balance white shoes from Kohl's and at the end of the first day I was the only one whose feet didn't hurt! It definitely pays to get good shoes.

    I think that the Skethers Shape Ups are the best shoes. I have bad foot and ankle problems, and with those shoes, I can be on my feet for hours with no pain at all.

    I had heard great things about those too, then I heard lots of stories about people developing knee problems from them. I guess the only way to know is to try them out!
