How You Can Find The Most Comfortable Work Shoe
Posted by Amy on 12th Oct 2019
When it comes to getting a good workout, almost everyone recognizes the importance of picking the right shoe to stay comfortable and avoid hurting your feet, legs, knees and back as you exercise. But many people neglect their bodies at work by not having the same mentality. When you work in the medical industry and you’re moving around on your feet all day, it's more important than ever to have the right kind of shoe on. So we’ve put together this short list of advice on the criteria you should look for when searching for the right work shoes.
Find The Right Support
As a hard-working medical professional, you spend a lot of time on your feet, so finding a shoe with ample support is very important. Whether you’re walking in and out of work or going around to check up on different patients, you’ll want to make sure you have shoes that don’t hurt your legs or back. You’ll want to feel great and energetic as you walk around. If you get a shoe without the proper support, you’ll feel a lot more pain in your feet, legs and back.
Protect Your Feet
Just like the bottom of your shoe is important for support, so is the upside. If your shoe is too soft on the top and you drop something, you may hurt your feet or toes. Try to find a shoe that’s comfortable but at the same time has a thicker top to protect your toes.
Find The Right Weight
Believe it or not, the weight of your shoes is an important factor as well. A lighter weight shoe isn’t necessarily always a better option. But if you can find a lightweight shoe that has the right support, great! But most of the time you’ll want to find a shoe that’s somewhere in between lightweight and heavyweight. Generally, you’ll want to avoid heavy shoes, since they’ll tire out your legs more quickly.
