I typically worked 13 hour days, 3-4 times a week. However Im starting a new job in the cardiac catherization lab. I observed and wore leads in my danskos, not even halfway through my feet were killing me! Is there anyone who can give me any advice for comfort in this particular position? Any advice is helpful please and thank you!

What does that mean, you wore leads in your danskos? I'm guessing a typo but I can't figure it out.

I'm guessing it's supposed to be "wore leads and my danskos," leads being to protect from radiation.

Yes. So any advice on different shoes?

I'm not sure. I wear Danskos. I'm guessing some of your trouble comes from the fact that you were observing, and probably standing still versus walking around. Try thicker socks maybe? Trial and error it up with your shoes?
