So, what's on your feet? - page 3

I work with LVN's on a detox unit, and two of them wear these clogs. Now, I am in nursing school and wanted to explore this question..... Are these clogs better than a good pair of Nikes? Or does... Read More

    I find Nike Cross-Trainers to be the best shoe for me, and I'm talking about the ones that cost >$80. I haven't found any shoe to give the most supportive feel when I am doing aerobics. Other shoes just don't fit as well and you slide a little in cheaper ones.
    I don't like Nike, wealth, and am not a spokesperson - just to get that out
    If I was required to wear a specific shoe, iyd make sure it povides the support you need. You can't scrimp when it pertains to your skeleton. Aerobic cross trainers are on my feet. Imma 8.5 male

    Here's another vote for clogs. Have some I wear at home and some I wear to work. I wear Anywear brand to work, they have replacement insoles for really cheap. I also wear New Balance tennis shoes when I'm not wearing my clogs. New Balance are the best, most comfortable tennis shoes in my book, recommended by my podiatrist as well.

    clog (klg)
    An obstruction or hindrance.
    A weight, such as a block, attached to the leg of an animal to hinder movement.
    A heavy, usually wooden-soled shoe.

    "How can a person wear clogs to work?"
    "is it some for of sub-servience, like when Asain women used to bound up their feet because it was considered sexy to their husbands, lol"

    My first semester of nursing school they insisted (because they can, the power hungry freaks at my school) that we wear only nursing shoes... no athletic shoes allowed.
    So I bought a pair of rockers at about $55. I have never in my life worn an more uncomfortable shoe. In fact, I now have almost constant shooting pain through my left arch and find it difficult to walk when I first wake up in the morning.
    Now I've switched to all white Skechers (not a clog) and I'm very glad I did.... now if the pain in my feet could just go away....

    I use to love Birkenstock but the soles wear out pretty fast on me. Now I wear Dansco professional clogs and LOVE LOVE LOVE them. Just note that the heels are not made to snug your feet closely...if they do they are the wrong size. I never have any trouble moving fast.

    For the past year and a half I have worn a pair of Boston Birkinstocks. I have tried to wear different nursing shoes and Nike's, but go back to the Birkinstocks. They stay on my feet without any problems and I don't have any leg or foot cramps. I swear by them.

    New Balance, they're WIDE and I won't wear anything else! You have to buy an extra arch support for them and place it under the insole.

    I wear Support Hose too. They really help my legs.

    The sketcher clogs are sooo comfortable. For the first feet don't hurt at the end of a shift!

    I love the Birkenstocks but as of February 1, my hospital
    "outlawed" clogs. The reason being, or so they say, is that OSHA requires the heels be completely covered. So I wear New Balance. I rotate thru 3 pairs. I have super high arches and after a diligent search, I found the three styles that don't require an additional arch support. I gave up on Nike's by the time I was 40 (OMG -- did I say that?). Nikes gave me a bunion type thing. Reeboks wear out too easily on my dogs. Adias are cool but finding them in the OSHA required "all leather" is nearly impossible. So New Balance is keeping me on the stroll!

    did you see it in writing that osha required the heel to be covered? if that is true alot of hospitals aren't in compliance.our doctors even wear clogs.
