How Your Shoes Affect Your Comfort At Work

Posted by

Medical professionals work hard to keep others healthy and comfortable. But far too often, nurses, doctors and other medical professionals neglect their own comfort while they’re working. There might just be one aspect of your outfit that contributes to your discomfort more than you realize; your shoes. Something as simple as having the wrong size shoe can lead to horrible leg pain, foot pain and back pain. Let’s talk about how you can find the right pair of nursing shoes to maintain your comfort at work.

Finding Comfortable Shoes

When you start searching for the right work shoes, your first priority shouldn’t be how flashy it looks or whether it matches your outfit just right. First you should find a size and style of shoe that fits comfortably. Picking the right shoe can be the difference between comfort and debilitating pain. So when you’re picking out your shoes, take as much time as you need to walk around in them and make sure that they feel just right. If there’s any amount of discomfort or pain when you try them on, try again with another pair. You might be thinking they’ll get more comfortable the longer you wear them, but that’s not always the case. Check out our scrubs blog

Traction Is Key

Keep in mind what you’ll be doing throughout the day as you buy your shoes. For most medical professionals, that means quickly moving through the halls. You’ll want to find a nursing shoe with the right traction and grip to keep you from slipping while you walk. When you first try them on, pay attention to how much traction the shoes have.

Stylish Appearance

Now that you’ve found something comfortable and with the right traction, it's time to find your style. Pick out a pair of shoes that you’ll love to see yourself in every day.
