shoes for clinicals?

  1. For my school we have to have all white shoes with a leather top. I am not sure what brand to get or even where to get them. I checked at Walmart, payless and the shoe dept. If anyone has any suggestions Please feel free to tell me. (:

    I wore reebok low tops in white they were very comfortable when you are up on your feet most of the time during clinicals

    are they expensive? I don't know how much I should spend on them. I want a good quality shoe but I don't want to pay too much

    Shoes that don't kill your feet after wearing them 12+ hours are worth any price they ask. Which is why I went to a running store (a real one, not a mall wanna-be) and tried on 8 different pairs of shoes and spent time walking around in them and etc. I have heel spurs so I can't wear most shoes. Payless and Walmart are usually no good for me because their shoes kill my feet inside of an hour. I ended up buying a pair of all white Nikes for an outrageous amount of money.. and they have been worth every nickel. You get what you pay for.

    The best shoes I've found (and I have bad arches) are Propet Walkers in white. They're a washable leather and are super comfortable, give great support, and can keep me on my feet for hours and hours. I got mine several years ago at DSW for around $40-$45.

    The very best shoe I could recommend is Dansko's but they are pricey ($100+). Besides that you can find plain white Nikes that are pretty comfortable for about $40.

    I bought a pair of Cherokee Transcends Patricia clogs (looks very similar to a Dansko) at my local uniform store and they were about $65 on sale. They are very well cushioned and feel great on my feet.

    I do have a pair of Danskos professionals in black that I wear to my job as a waitress. They are a very well structured shoe but beware- they DO have a very firm footbed. My shifts at the restaurant last about 4 to 5 hours and while my feet feel supported, at the end of a shift they do feel pretty beat up. It's also hard to wear an insole in Danskos because it crowds your foot too much.

    Danskos! They are leather. Spendy but I worked 12 hour shifts as a CNA and they saved my feet. I'm willing to pay to not be sore.

    I think I found the perfect shoe for me. They're about sixty. I forgot what brand they were but they feel great. Ill do some more looking around and definitely try everyone's suggestions

    Have you tried Alegria shoes? I just bought two pairs and I'm excited to wear them tomorrow night to far they seem VERY comfy, like walking on clouds! They have great arch support and nurses swear by them and honestly, I have never read a bad review on these shoes. I have been wearing Danskos for awhile and while I love them, lately I have been having knee pain. Not sure if it's from the shoes or the fact that I need to start rotating shoes from working so much, but I decided to try Alegria shoes. Unlike Alegria, I have read bad reviews on Danskos. Dansko shoes also take awhile to get used to and the foot bed is VERY firm whereas Alegria shoes are soft. They are expensive like Danskos ($110-$120) but believe me, do not sacrifice comfort for price! I have tried tennis shoes but my feet hurt too much...I also tried Nurse Mates shoes but they were ridiculously uncomfortable.
