What are the best shoes for nursing? - page 3

I'm a new grad. Most of my previous positions required me to stand for long periods of time and I never really found the shoe that worked for me. The best I found were Crocs, but I'm not a fan of how... Read More

    Do some research on z-coils. They are the reason I can still do 12 hr shifts in ICU with minimal discomfort. Not much pricier than Dansco and they wear like iron. I still have my first pair- I use them for day trips to a theme park or museum. Seriously minimizes wear and tear on joints . At 59, no arthritis while most of my other "mature" co- workers have had at least one joint replacement.

    Yes but they are some funny looking kicks, LOL.

    I have very large feet women's 12 but I have extremely narrow feet with a very high arch. Any advice I haven't been happy with the asics for clinicals.

    Can you provide a link for the Skechers? I tried Googling them but I keep getting Shape Ups in my results.

    These are the ones I have and I love em. They dont look all funky like the shape ups.

    I have three different pairs of shoes I wear. One is an BROOKS athletic type shoe and another is a shoe from P.W MINOR I got from a store called FOOT SOLUTIONS. I also have a pair of Sanitas. I have also worn a CROSS athletic shoe, which is a shoe for TENNIS and really liked it. I would buy that again. I have different shoes because I find my feet and legs feel better if I don't wear the same shoe every day.

    I could never find any DANSKO that felt good on my feet and one day I was in a Scrubs store and tried on this pair of SANITAS. Liked them instantly. Well, come to find out they were a special order in a Narrow width that the customer apparently didn't want. I tried on other SANITAS and they weren't comfortable either; so - revelation! Narrow width made the difference. I like the SANITAS but I don't think I could wear them every day and be comfortable. My feet don't hurt while I'm wearing them but sore the next day. Also, there is a rough spot on the upper of one that rubs and abraids one of my toes.

    I'd say if I HAD to choose just one shoe, it would be those CROSS shoes for comfort ..... but I've only found them in white .

    I keep coming back to Born clogs. They are comfortable, wear well, and look OK.

    I have tried tons of shoes and the ones I always go back to are my K-Swiss sneakers. The basic kind that come in all leather, white or black. I can make it in Birkenstocks, but the K-Swiss are more comfy for me.

    Thanks so much everyone for the recommendations. I think I will start trying some but keep my crocs close by till I find the right pair.

    If you don't have to wear white shoes, then I highly recommend just a pair of Merrell's - I got a pair about 3 years ago now that are water proof and they are the best pair of shoes I've ever owned and they look like they're still relatively new and I assure you I am pretty tough on my shoes. I also have to wear orthotics for my high arches and they fit perfectly inside. They really are waterproof as well, I can walk through rain/puddles and my feet stay completely dry.

    I had a pair of Nurse Mates when I was in school and they were comfortable but they made my feet stink SO bad even with socks - never had a pair of shoes do that to me before.

    The Merrell's ran me about $120 for the waterproof type and they have paid for themselves.

    I recommend going and trying shoes on - if you think you can get a better price on the internet then go try them on first and then order online.

    Link to the pair I have: http://www.amazon.com/Merrell-Womens...=pd_sbs_shoe_5 (I don't see them on Merrell's site anymore, but i didn't look very long)
