My daughter wants a pair of these just "because". Thats a 9 year old, and thats how comfortable they are.

How long do they last on someone walking a floor for 12 hours a night? I like the price but don't want to spend it every other month when I've been getting 6-9 good months out of Nurse Mates.

I just got a new pair of danskos and weirdly that don't feel like they need to be broken in, after hearing so much about the break in period I'm worried I got the wrong size!

No worries...you got the right size; your feet are made for Danskos. :up:

I never have to "break in" my Danskos. :no:

I am 245# and find that Dansko's work great. I got tired of $125 running shoes q 6 months. I just ordered two pair of Sanitas from clogoutlet.com thanks for the suggestion. I will post when I wear them around for awhile. I got one pair at reg price, and one pair of 2nds. My order is $160 so that's about like the running shoes I wore. They were great for 3 months then they start breaking down, and after 6 months I have knee pain. Everyone is different. I am on a med surg floor and cover a lot of ground. I am 6'2" and though I could drop 20# I like to feed too much. FYI.

Hi, Just wondering how the Sanitas worked out for you? I am looking at their site now and they are offering 15% off for 4th of July. Thinking of ordering a pair....

Thanks!!

I would definitely suggest Dankso clogs, Converses, or Asics Gel Nimbus! Don't forget compression socks because they make a world of difference!

I agree with roser13.Yes, I don't think there's a single answer to that question -- different makes (and models) of shoes are more or less comfortable for different people. I've had v. good experiences with Nursemates, SAS, and New Balance. But, just because one person swears by a particular brand of shoe, that doesn't mean it will work for you. It's better to find out from own. This may help you. Thanks

We did a "Nursing Unboxed" video with the ZCoiL shoe. Watch for the 15% discount code in the video

Come on $250 for clogs?  I'll stick with my NB.

Since Payless went out of business, I am out of my usual source for footwear, nursing or not.

I went to New Balance the other day and bought some great running shoes that were like half off.  They were the 990 or 890... tons of cushion!  And I’m not a small guy.  Paid 60 bucks!

I used to wear Alegria and occasionally some Dansko's. Then I found Halflinger, not necessarily a nursing shoe but they are the only shoes I've ever worn that I have zero pain after a double. No back, hip, knee or foot pain at all. Now that's all I wear.

I replied to this topic years ago.  I tried at least 10 different types of shoes.  In the last two years of my career i found Hoka 5, a running shoe.  Lightweight, well padded, and protect my arthritic feet.  Like it has been said, no one shoe works for everyone, but I am a happy camper.  oh yeah, they last a year on the floor.
