This Part Of Your Scrub Outfit Might Be More Important Than You Think

If you work in the medical industry, we know you work hard to keep others healthy and happy, but are you sacrificing your own comfort while you do it? There might be one aspect of your outfit that contributes to your discomfort more than you realize; your 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 Scrubs blog, we want to help you find the right nursing shoe by providing you with advice on what you need to look for in a pair of nursing shoes.

Comfort Over Everything

Picking the wrong pair of shoes can mean leg and back pain at work, but the right shoes can help you glide right through your shift comfortably. 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 perfect. If there’s any amount of discomfort or pain when you try them on, don’t settle for that pair; try on another! You may think over time they’ll feel more comfortable, 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 just right.

Traction Matters

Your job may often require fast pace moving 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.

Pick Your Style

If you’ve found shoes that feel comfortable and have the right traction, now you can focus on style! Try to 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 set of Blue Sky Nursing Scrubs!
