I am really on a hunt for GOOD, COMFORTABLE nursing shoes. Any suggestions? Nothing TOO expensive, after all... we are poor students ;)... Read More

    i agree about the Danskos. They are expensive, and they do have a break in period, but once you get through both, you wont want anything else on your feet. I can't remember the last time i wore shoes that weren't Danskos - but it does bear mentioning that i have a very high arch in my feet.

    I have a pair of sanita clogs and they are very hard, but offer arch support. On the other hand, I recently ordered Algeria and they are amazing!!! There is a huge difference in the comfort level of these two brands. On a side note--I love the Alegria's so well, that I purchased a second pair.

    I will praise Dansko until the day my feet fall off! I have two knock-off dansko's that I got on ebay really cheap, and I see why. The ones in my avitar are Dansko and I got them on sale for $90 instead of $130 and they are worth every single dime!

    I've seen plenty of male doctors and nurses wearing Dansko shoes!!!! They come in "neutral" colors too!

    Depends on your feet really. I have high insteps and also a scar on my right arch. As a result I can't wear shoes with arch support, and I have to be able to adjust them for my instep. So it's really individual. For example I was already limping in the store when I tried on a pair of Danskos, and I couldn't even get my foot into a pair of Alegrias. Not the shoes for me. I always liked Merrils but they don't make the model I wore in white smooth leather anymore. I have also worn sketchers, rockers and new balance, which are okay.

    Some time ago, we had an inservice at work on footwear and alignment, etc. We were told that one of the biggest mistakes nurses tend to make with shoes isn't choosing the wrong pair but wearing them for too long (that is, wearing the same shoes even after they have worn out). Even the best shoes will start wearing out from the heavy use on concrete floors and should be replaced every couple of years. So I've always replaced my shoes relatively regularly. I find that even cheap ones are usually perfectly serviceable with that approach.
