Scrubs And Shoes May Affect Your Comfort At Work More Than You Realize
Posted by Amy on 14th Feb 2023
Medical professionals are some of the hardest working people out there, and you work to keep others healthy and comfortable. But far too often, medical professionals neglect their own comfort while at work. There might just be one aspect of your outfit that is affecting your comfort level more than you realize; your shoes. Something as simple as having the wrong size shoe can, believe it or not, lead to discomfort and 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.
The Importance Of Comfortable Shoes
As important as your appearance may be, let’s put that aside for now and come back to it later. First you should find a size and style of shoe that fits comfortably. Like we said above, picking the right shoe can be the difference between comfort and debilitating pain that impacts your performance at work.
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. You want to start with a pair of shoes that feels right.
The Right Traction
Another thing to keep in mind when scrubs shopping for your shoes is the activities you’ll be doing at work, which may require you to move quickly through busy hallways. 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.
Now that we have the more important things out of the way, let’s talk about appearance. Pick out a pair of shoes that you’ll love to see yourself in every day (as long as it is comfortable and has good traction). Maybe you should even pick a pair of shoes that creates the right look with your favorite set of Blue Sky Scrubs!
