How To Find The Right Support In Your Nursing Shoe

Posted by

When you’re working out, you probably pay attention to the type of shoes you wear to keep a good amount of support for your back, legs and feet, as most people do. But when you’re walking through the hallways at work, are you applying the same mentality? Many people neglect their bodies by not wearing shoes that give them proper support at work, even if they would at the gym! When you work in the medical industry and you’re on your feet all day, it's just as important to have the right pair of shoes on. We’ve put together a short list here of what you should look for in a nursing shoe.

Finding Support

Like we already mentioned, medical professionals like you often spend all day on their feet, so finding the right support is important. Whether you’re walking in and out of work or walking through the halls from patient to patient, you’ll want something that’s comfortable and keeps your legs, back and feet from hurting. Without the proper level of support, you’ll end up straining your body by the end of the day, so pay close attention to how it feels when you walk around in a pair of shoes before you buy them.

Foot Safety

The bottom of the shoe might be important for support, but the upside is important too. If you ever drop something heavy at work, keep in mind it could land right on your toes. In the fast pace work of the medical industry, accidents are bound to occur, and you’ll want to be prepared. Find shoes that are thicker near the toes.

Determine The Weight

Our last piece of advice is to pay close attention to the weight of the shoes. Heavyweight shoes will tire you out more quickly, but lightweight shoes usually don’t have the right level of support. Try to find shoes that are about medium weight for maximum comfort.


We hope these tips have been helpful. To view all the amazing scrubs, lab coats and fantastic accessories we have available that can match your new shoes perfectly, just visit the Blue Sky Co. website.
