Work Shoes?


Specializes in ER.

Hi everyone!

Can someone recommend shoes to wear for my 12 hour shifts? Specifically not Danskos since I may sprain an ankle. I'm looking for sneakers that have a wider "toe box". I want to refrain from Nikes too but I am just stumped!

I wear WIDE and am heavy. Brooks Ghost 11 and 12 are great.

I agree with above, I LOVE my Ghost 12 Brooks! So comfy and I can stay on my feet for over 8 hours at a time. I've had them for maybe 8-ish months, and I will NEVER use any other shoe for nursing!

I wear ASICS gel venture. They come in wide width- I have wide feet and high arches. No more planter fasciitis since I switched.

Brooks Adrenaline (more support and great for flat feet).
