    I love my New Balance. I've had several foot surgeries and need a wide toe box. These are the only tennies that come in wide sizes and give lots of support.

    I'm using worthy's computer right now but I'm a Chiropodist (Same scope of practise as a Podiatrist) Check your insurance plan your may qualify for Orthopedic Footwear which under some plans can mean extra depth variable width shoes. Some stock items may apply such as New Balance or Etonics. (variable width shoes are ideal as sometimes you have to out a size not up a size.) If you are going for in store shoes keep in mind go late in the day (for swollen feet) wear the socks you are going to wear with that shoe normally, try on multiple pairs as the first pair may fit like a dream but the second may blow them out of the water. If you wear orthotics wear them when you are trying on the shoes too!
    As for some of the posts on Birk's I find that people with extreme foot types (Pes Planus, Pes Cavus) can run into problems with them. (Too much or too little arch) I've done custom made Birkenstocks through Langer Orthotics based in NY State with great (but pricey) results, check with you local DPM. Sorry I won't be able to respond to this post.

    I used to take 2 pairs of shoes and sox to work w/ me, then 1/2 way thru my shift I changed. One of the Docs made fun of me until he tried it, then he said it worked great. Be sure to change your sox too.

    I have really small, narrow feet and I used to only wear sneakers to work becuase I felt that they were the only shoes that fit me right. My feet always used to hurt me and the father of one of my patients (he was a doctor) recommended Dansko Clogs. I tried them and love them. I definitley notice a difference in the way my feet feel after a 12 hr shift.

    I wear dansko--you can get them with a polyurathane coating so you can was them off. They are very comfy.

    I had Dansko's, but found them too heavy. Love my Birkenstocks! Sometimes I forget I have shoes on. Also, socks with as much cotton content as you acn find. Much more comfy.....

    Birkenstock Londons.... Well worth the cost, and they can be resoled. I've found the leather scuffs up a bit, but polish fixes that problem. And they do have a lot of toe room - probably too much, since I've been called 'Mickey Mouse' by co-workers and patients alike! (that is, until they tried the shoes on for themselves!) My feet are never sore after a 12 hours shift, and I'd always had problems with achy heels prior to these shoes.

    Nursemates - Oy..... Has anyone ever found a pair of these that actually felt good on their feet?
