Hi all,

My sister has has been on the job as a LPN for about 3 months. Im looking for some great nursing shoes as a gift for her. She works at a LTC facility and absolutely loves her job and adores her residents and tries to give each of them the best care possible; however, between passing meds, and the million other things you great nurses do, she is on her feet all day with barely anytime for a sit down, lunch, or breaks. She just bought a pair of nursing shoes, (can't remember the name), which doesn't help and is sticking to her regualr Nike tennis shoes. She is always complaining about how bad her feet hurt after a long day. Can you guys give me some insight on the right shoe to buy or would recommend?

Thanks!!!

Danskos. All the way. But each pair fits differently as they are hand made so its better to have her go in and try on shoes until she finds the fit for her.

You are so sweet! Danskos are quality shoes that many (most?) nurses like. They can be sober & simple or wild & crazy patterns.

I have been very happy with my Alegrias and Danskos. I think the best would be a gift certificate to the Walking Company so she can try on many pairs and find one that fits her well.

That is a good idea. I was just window shopping there the other day and saw a lot of cute danskos. If u do that I would suggest a certificate for $140, that should cover a pair.

Agree with Dansko-

And look into the Dansko Volley collection. Lots of cute options and they are on the lower end for Danskos ($40-$80 a pair on eBay or Amazon, depending on color) so you could get 2!
