I just bought a pair of Grey's Anatomy shoes for work. I work 5 8 hour shifts for one year then I'll be switching to 3 12's. I'm hoping to make them last. The Grey's Anatomy shoes seem really comfortable right now, but I can't find any reviews about them online. Has anyone tried this brand? Does anyone recommend getting another brand of shoe? Also, I have a bad hip already and I'm only 21!

I didn't even know Greys made shoes too! I just use Nike Free Trainers 5.0! Comfy as hell with insoles.

My fave are the KLOGS brand. They do not make too many in white though anymore! They last forever too! How come white shoes are being:no: kicked to the curb?

I am too clumsy for the clogs with elevation. I wear my Puma running shoes. I love them! They are cloth material so they ease the pressure on my bunions too. 23 years old with attractive bunions..Lord help me :banghead:

I'm totally the minority, because I have bad knees that don't do well at ALL with any sort of support built in, but I prefer to wear Converse on the floor. They don't have any heel drop or weird support systems that'll aggravate my knees during long hours, and since I cant wear my Vibram FiveFingers (because they're technically not "close-toed"), the closest second that is long-lasting with durable rubber was Converse. Make me occasionally look like I'm 28 going on 12, but hey, my knees are happier.

Any suggestions for quieter shoes? I have a pair of danskos that I love and broke in a year ago but at the hospital I'm going to be starting at they are super noisy. Like obnoxious noisy. Squeak squeak squeak. -.-' it looks almost like linoleum flooring on the unit.

Possibly Timberland PRO Renovas? I know they are similar to Danskos in style and support, but I don't know about the noise factor...

I like Brooks personally.
