No Scrub Outfit Is Complete Without The Right Shoes

Here on the Blue Sky blog, we recently wrote about how you can top off your favorite scrub outfit with one of our gorgeous, colorful scrub caps. But even with comfy scrubs and a cap, your scrub outfit isn’t complete until you have the perfect shoes. And that means you shouldn’t settle for discomfort. Having a shoe that isn’t the right size for your feet can easily cause foot pain, leg pain and back pain. Today on the Blue Sky Scrubs blog, we want to help you find the right nursing shoe by giving you some helpful advice about what to look for.

Seeking Total Comfort

Let’s start out with the most important thing about the shoe you wear to work; comfort level. Like we said above, 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 may think you’ll wear them in over time, but it's better not to take the chance. Don’t worry too much about how your shoes look until you find one that fits right. Also please check out our beautiful scrub tops to go with your cool shoes. 

The Importance of Traction

Walking quickly through the halls from patient to patient is a normal part of any day for medical professionals. 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.

The Perfect Shoe

After you’ve narrowed down shoes with the right comfort level and traction, then you can worry about how they look. Pick out a pair of shoes that you’ll love to see yourself in every day. Maybe you should even pick a pair of shoes that matches your favorite Blue Sky scrubs!
