Beating Discomfort At Work With The Right Nursing Shoe

When you’re at work in a hospital or other medical facility, there are many factors that determine how comfortable you are, but have you been underestimating just how important it is to have the right kind of nursing shoe? Having a shoe that’s uncomfortable or isn’t the right size on your feet can easily contribute to foot pain, leg pain and back pain. Today on the Blue Sky blog, we want to tell you what you need to look for to find the perfect nursing shoe and end all that unnecessary discomfort.

How Do They Fit?

First and foremost, when you’re picking out a nursing shoe, comfort is the most important factor. Like we stated above, picking the right nursing shoe can be the difference between comfort and debilitating pain. So when you’re picking out your new nursing shoes, take as much time as you need to walk around in them until you’re absolutely certain that they fit you just right. If there’s any amount of discomfort or pain when you try them on, pick a different pair and try again. Don’t forget that you’ll be walking around on these things for hours at a time. Don’t worry too much about how your nursing shoes look until you’ve found a pair with the right fit.

How’s The Traction?

Medical facilities can be a busy environment, and you’ll probably have to move quickly through the hallways sometimes, so you’ll want to pick a nursing shoe with the right traction and grip. When you first try them on, pay attention to how well the shoes can grip and keep you from slipping.

How Do They Look?

Once you’ve gotten a nursing shoe with the right fit and the right traction, you still want to make sure it looks great on you! Take the time to pick out something that you’ll love to see yourself in every day. Maybe you should even pick out a nursing shoe that matches your favorite Blue Sky Scrubs!
