Scrubs and Shoe recomendations

  1. 0
    Anyone have any advice on what brand of scrubs to purchase (which to stay away from), what online stores are good for purchasing scrubs (No scrub stores where I live) and probably most importantly what kind of shoes you wear. I do not plan on going to Payless for myshoes, I want to invest in a good pair since I will live on my feet. I am not necessarily sold on Crocs, but are they really that good????

    My shoes had to be white, so I just bought white Nikes. I usually buy Payless shoes, but I knew these needed to be comfortable and durable, so I bought my first pair of "expensive" sneakers. Totally makes a difference.

    my school and a lot of schools around require you to have a specific color and brand of scrubs, check with your school to see if they have requirements. my school requires us to wear landau brand scrubs but i have quite a few different brands from a previous job. i absolutly love koi brand (so comfortable and they have adorable patterns and designs). greys anatomy are extremely comfy and they are really soft material and hold up well. i like the baby phat scrubs too but some of their designs are kind of out there =) i purchase from allheart and uniformadvantage online. also, if you live near a hospital, you will never beleive the amount of great quality scrubs you can get from goodwill. (my best kept secret!!!) i have to have white shoes for clinical like the previous poster. i got nursemates-link below. i tried mine on in a scrub store but you can order them from all different places. i have low arches and wider feet and tend to get footaches from being on my feet all day but not with these shoes. they are quite comfy and have a good insole in them. i have heard sketcher shape ups and good too. if you like the feeling-klogs and danskos make great nursing shoes but i just could not get used to the feeling of walking in them. crocs rock-they are pretty great but my school doesnt allow them =(
    hope that helps!!

    I only wear aviator scrubs they are like indestructible and never fade. And I will never wear any shoes besides my super birkis by Birkenstock. My wife swears by Dansko for the shoes though. I will rarely allow my feet in my pair of those for occasional change, they are incredible shoes too and well worth the money especially if you check eBay.

    Thanks everyone for the info! Luckily my school allows us to wear any brand scrubs, but they have to be navy blue (worst color ever ). We can wear any shoes as long as they are closed toe. I have a pair of Shape Ups but I do not think they are that comfy. Part of what works your leg muscles, is that you are fighting to keep your balance, not a good idea on the hospital floor.

    I might just have to drive to Vegas (2 hours away) to try on scrubs, sounds like they are all very different! I am so excited to start school that I would drive to the end of the Earth to get scrubs if I had to

    Thanks again everyone!

    My all-time faves are Koi scrubs, especially for pants. They have longs that fit me nicely and I like the pocket layout. I have lots of White Heart tops, too.

    My new faves are WonderWink scrubs, esp the Quebec pant. I highly recommend them, especially for school. They don't really need to be ironed and won't readily stain. And yay, they have Navy! My only issue is they don't have tall where I shop, so I need to buy online. Uniform Advantage has them- probably lots of other retailers do, too. They're pretty inexpensive, too. So far they seem a bit indestructible to me. :~)

    I'm definitely buying more of these. And shoes...well, I didn't buy my Danskos till after school. I have crazy-high arches and regular sneakers won't cut it every day, so I switch between Danskos (can't find mine- the style is either too old or too new- my store is a test market) and these Skechers:

    I dont have a preference for scrubs but I love shoes! I switch between my Dansko, Koi by Sanita, Timberlands and Nursemates. Out of those, I prefer the Danskos, Koi, and Timberlands.

    For scrubs I'd have to go with Koi because of their stylish prints or Buttersoft because they live up to the name! and are inexpensive compared to other brands and for shoes Dansko...they really do mold to your foot and are worth the price tag. I order mine from Uniform Advantage because I've had great experiences with their customer service..and you can't buy the Buttersoft anywhere else bc it's their brand.

    I have to disagree. The worst color ever is white. I would turn flips if my school let me wear navy! :-)
