Hey all,

I'm looking for your input on what you find the best and most comfortable shoe is , to wear if you work in the OR. When I worked in the ICU years ago, I found my Dansko's to be pretty comfortable. Any feedback/recommendations greatly appreciated.

If you're used to wearing Danskos - there is nothing wrong with them.  I have a pair at work.  I also have Calzuros and a pair of tennis shoes at work.   Depends on the day which I wear.  If I'm assigned to scrub and stand all day, I may not wear my Danksos.  This is probably more personal preference than anything.

Danskos have the best arch support.  But what shoes are most comfortable will depend upon your feet.

It really depends on your feet. For me, the best I have found is my wide new balance 1540v2 shoes with Dr scholls inserts. Anything else is pure pain after a long day. I swear by them so much that my closet shelf is full of them in case they are discontinued!
