Shoes - page 3

Ok...this might sound goofy for a question, but here goes... I will have to purchase my first pair of "white nurse shoes" by June (for school). I was curious as to what types of shoes you all... Read More

    I get beautiful white K-Swiss, usually a limited edition, from their web site.

    I had been wearing Nikes but this fall I bought a pair of Skechers clogs, thought I'd wear them at home but have been wearing them to work and they are GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Support, support, support. If they make your feet hurt take them back, give them to charity, whatever.

    For school I had the almost all white Adidis runners, very comfortable, lasted the entire program.

    At work, I must admit I am a rebel. I worked in the OR now in OB and have specific shoes just for there including some Old Navy tan clogs and Payless plain black "leather" shoes, comfortable for standing in for long periods of time, stylish too.

    Just remember the shoe covers if you are in high spill areas (OR, OB, ER (I heard charcol doesn'come out too well))

    I mix it up some. Mostly anything I have that is comfortable and (obviously) not open-toed. Sigh... I have to save showing off that pedicure for the weekends. Usually I'll wear some athletic shoes or some cute bowling shoes I picked up from Payless. My friend said they are having a buy 2 pair, get one free sale so I'll have to check that out soon.

    I have a couple pairs of shoes in different styles that way I can trade off and my feet seem happier for the effort. The first pair I purchased were a pair of closed heal Dansko clogs. I just LOVE these shoes. My doctor told me once that I have peasant feet (seen better days) and these shoes have NEVER caused me any pain. They are one of the brands appoved for hiddious feet just like mine. They allow natural movement of the foot much like Berkies but are not as flat. The others are a pair of Avia walking shoes. I will get less life out of these than the Danskos (Danskos last FOREVER) but I like the change.

    I love my Dansko Clogs!!!! My feet don't feel sore after a hard 12 hours. I have two types, the closed back style and one with a sling back. The support they give is great and well worth the money spent. (Plus they do last forever)

    Some great ideas here. I hated SASS, but my sister swears by them. I do love the pair of clogs I have. Didn't think I'd like them, but they are nice. I have wide feet and have to find a size 10 W in whatever I buy....that is not easy. I currently wear Nikes but need new shoes. I am recovering from ankle surgery and the Doc said I need to wear good support shoes for at least 6 months and NO heels or flat shoes at all (even off-duty). After reading these entries, I may try the Birkies.

    New Balance, eh? They make them just up the road from me and I have never really considered them. Funny how you don't go for something that is right in your own back yard. I'll have to try them. I have been wearing "Anywears"
    I really like them...very comfy.
