Cna & danskos


I just got a job as a nurse tech with a hospital, I'm starting nursing school in the fall. When I got my danskos I was told to make sure my heel is free when I walk and slides in and out, I did this but the first day I wore the shoes only one foot hurt. He right foot across the top of my foot and the ben d in my toes when I walk was killing me. The other foot felt fine, I'm just wondering if I need a new pair???

Tool me several days to break mine in. I've had 4 pair and looooove them. Give it some time- they will soon be your best friend on long days.

Danskos need time to be broken in. Give it time, bring another pair of shoes to work if you need to switch.

My downfall was buying patent leather, they don't stretch. I bought alegrias and am having the danskos stretched

The first three days with my Danskos, I brought other shoes and changed in the breakroom at lunch. They take a bit to wear in, but now I have almost zero foot pain at the end of a 12. However, for some people they just don't work, so don't torture yourself trying to break them in for weeks if it's just not for you.
