Healthcare Professionals spend a lot of time on their feet, so it’s imperative that you have a fantastic pair of shoes. But not everyone wants to wear Crocs; and there are so many more options out there now. Stylish functional options! Here are the TOP 5 from BootBomb.com.
1. Dansko Women’s Professional Clog
The BEST clogs to deliver all day comfort; it even has a seal of acceptance from the American Podiatric Medical Association, meaning that it’s the best for your feat!!! Super stylish, fantastic arch support and contoured midsole keep your feet feeling supported, secure and sure footed throughout the day. Need more room for your toes? The toe box gives sufficient space to your toes. Anti-microbial material helps to ensure that the shoe doesn’t get so stinky. All and all, if you’re looking for a “gold star” shoe, this is it!
2. Skechers for Work Women’s Sure Track Slip-Resistant Shoe
Not a brand you would think that would make it on the top 5 but Skechers delivers! Stylish, functional, and built to handle a full day at the hospital. Memory foam insole, smooth solid leather, and shock absorbing, flexible midsoles make spending long hours on your feet better.
3. Dansko Women’s Professional Blue Ombre Patent Mule
By far our favorite shoe, because it looks pretty cool! Made with high quality leather coated with a spill resistant material, making cleaning up spills easy. Although they look kind of clunky, many HCPs love their anti-fatigue rocker bottom that is non-slip, box toe, and they feel lightweight. Fancy and all-around comfort!
4. Alegria Women’s Keli Professional Slip Resistant Work Shoe
Incredibly comfortable and light with a wide insole that makes the shoe very roomy, while still being stable! Padded instep and back collar prevent chafing while you’re working on the unit. If you need special orthopedics, these shoes will accommodate them.
5. Dansko Women’s Pro XP Mule
Another great looking option designed for all day comfort! Padded instep, memory foam insole, and anti-fatigue rocker bottom make it a great shoe for long shifts on the floor. If you need custom inserts, these shoes can accommodate them. People with wide arches will also like these shoes because they provide great support!
Approximately a 1/3 of all nurses suffer from back and feet pain; and that number is higher among all Healthcare workers. Don’t become a statistic! Take care of your feet, knees, and back, so you can take care of your patients!
