What Should You Look For In a Pair of Nursing Shoes?

Posted by

When you’re working in a hospital or any other medical facility, there are many factors that determine how comfortable you are. There might just be one aspect of your outfit that contributes to your comfort or discomfort more than you realize; your nursing shoes. Having a shoe that isn’t the right size for your feet, for example, can easily cause foot pain, leg pain and back pain. Today on the Blue Sky Co. blog, we want to help you find the right nursing shoe by giving you some helpful advice about what to look for.

A Comfortable Fit

First and foremost, when you’re picking out a nursing shoe, comfort is the most important factor. 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.

Traction

Medical facilities can be a very busy environment, and sometimes you may have to move quickly through the 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.

Appearance


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! 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!
