How Your Shoes Affect Your Work Day

Posted by

When it comes to exercising, we’re all quick to find the perfect shoe with just the right amount of support because we wouldn’t want to hurt ourselves (or our poor feet). However, we often don’t realize how the shoes we wear during the day affect our body- especially, in the medical field, when you’re on your feet all day. Don’t strain your feet, knees, legs, or back by settling on your shoes, look for a few key factors when buying new work shoes and you just might find your body happier and healthier.

Support is Important

From pacing the halls, being with different patients, even just walking in and out of work, as a medical professional, you spend a ton of time on your feet. The most important thing to look for in shoes (for this reason) is support. A shoe without support will hurt your feet and your body in the long run, dragging you down and causing strain throughout your muscles.

The Weight of Your Shoes

The weight of your shoes matters, believe it or not. A lighter weight shoe isn’t always necessarily better, although if you can find a lightweight shoe that has adequate support- you’re in luck! Most of the time, though, you’ll find a shoe that’s somewhere in between; not too light, not too heavy. But, here’s the thing. Lean away from heavy shoes- the heavier the shoe, the more weight you have to lug around throughout your shift.

Protect Your Feet

Just as the bottom of the shoe is important, so is the upside. If the shoe is too soft, you could risk hurting your feet if something were to fall or drop. We recommend take an extra precaution to find a shoe with a little thicker upside around the toes.

We hope you enjoyed these tips for finding your new pair of nursing shoes, if you’re looking for an affordable, luxurious pair of medical scrubs to go with them, head on over to our website!
