    That's kind of true about toms.
    We can wear any color shoes as long as they are closed toes. What are some support socks? I heard a lot but I don't want to buy the wrong kind. Can you give me fore info on that? I would love some support socks!
    I love my Toms and I live in TX where it doesn't rain much, but rainy weather and Toms don't mix!

    Support socks add some light compression to your feet/legs. They help with that leg fatigue that comes with being on your feet for long hours at a time. These are the ones I use, by Cherokee. They are knee-high and I do not have issues with them sliding down during a shift. They are not "tight," they just add some light compression. They make a world of a difference when I wear them compared to when I don't!

    Check out a medical supply/scrub shop in your area, or you can order them online.

    I love my Alegria Paloma's! I have a hx of plantar fasciitis, so bad that I had to go on leave at one point. I tried every type of shoe I could think of with no relief. I finally bought a pair of Alegria's and they are HEAVEN! I work in a busy ER so I am running my entire shift & I swear these shoes have all but cured my PF. I can wear them 3 days in a row with now heel pain - I love it! Plus they have so many adorable designs & colors...very fun considering we have no choice in our scrub colors!

    Like others have said above - its all about personal preference. You may try many before you find "the perfect shoe" - good luck!
    Where would u guys say I can find Alegria shoes in store? It would be better to try them on first before buying it. Also I saw Amazon selling them for a bit cheaper.

    Hmm, that's odd. I would contact them regarding that issue. And yes, that website is real, I have ordered from there before! They have fast 2-3 day shipping and free returns except for their closeout items. Though I bought a pair from their closeout selection and I was very happy with my purchase.
