Im still getting used to my first LPN job and i go home everyday in pain. When i finally go to bed, my feet are pounding when i elevate them. I just wanted to complain to you guys, since you've all probably been there. Thanks and Happy Holidays to all!!!

I really like those Dr. Scholl's inserts - the kind you go put your feet on the machine and it tells you what you need. The machines are found in walgreens and Walmarts. They are about $50 but was worth every penny

Thanks! I was wondering if i should invest in those or an expensive pair of nursing shoes. But alot of nurses have told me they regret spending a lot on their nursing shoes because they arent that great. I think ill buy the dr scholls this week. Thank you!

dansko clogs are expensive about $120, but worth every penny!

Love my danskos! Also got some compression sleeves for my calves for Christmas that I wore for 12+ hours on the floor today, and I must admit my legs feel amazing! I would invest in danskos and compression hose :)

I bought a pair of Dr.Scholls shoes (not just the inserts) and they are awesome.

I'm a big fan of running shoes. They provide me w/the most support. I don't like danskos or any clogs anymore. I also wear the knee high socks for diabetics (even though I'm not). Those help.

Those Dr. Scholl's machines at the drug stores rock! Those insoles, TEDS, and Tylenol & ibuprofen really help me out!
