So why am I writing this??? Because its just too important for nurses! And if you’re a nurse you know how it is right?? We give medications, we go back and forth to check our beloved patients, then we run at times just to get something to save patients lives, then… we go back and forth again! This is why sometimes we forget to pee! Haha! Because it’s all happening in the ward! Hehe. I am only talking about Nurses on the go 😉 as some works at the facility like the triage Nurses call centre and on research jobs, but most Nurses would know how important this is!
I have been working as a Nurse for nearly 10 years now including overseas, and finding the right shoes for comfort, support and stability for long hours is needed, and as I have experienced to try on different shoes in search for the perfect one I would like to share with you and some of my colleagues best shoes to wear. So here are the lists!
Ecco Rise GTX Slip On
These are the perfect good looking, most comfortable shoes, I have ever worn! I have lots of good comments from this specially from the patients, I had my pair for more than 3 years now and still looks new! You can literally be up and walking on this for more than 8 hours and you don’t feel hurt on your back and calves and foot, so this is highly recommended. With this one you get what you paid for as it will cost you around $149-249. I bought mine at amazon for $149

Stretchy textile combined with a soft leather upper gives great flexibility and comfort. 100% waterproof thanks to its GORE-TEX® membrane.

Adidas Pure Boost Unlimited ZG
Pure boost are considered the best running shoes ever made, and ill tell you now it is “THE BEST” working comfortable shoes youll walk on and a lot of reviews will tell you. We do run at work right?? 🙂 I’m only talking about the Pure Boost Unlimited ZG because it is what I have tried on and have worn for work but I’m pretty sure all the pure boost made are, I was going to buy the Ultra Boost but for the price of $240?? I will prolly not! Haha! I also have the NMD’s which are comfortable to wear too! And too darn good looking! I have worn this for months now and won’t disappoint!

Crocs Women’s Duet Busy Day 2.0 Satya A-line
I love the comfort of this shoes! It’s also lightweight. Initially it will feel a little bit tight but will eventually fit in on your foot comfortably well. I recommend ordering one size up for this one as they run small. I have worn this for nearly 2 years now and they are amazing! This looks good on and I get compliment a lot. It has really good arch support too.
Description from Website: Your go-anywhere, do-anything shoe just got better. The uppers are made with a stretchy fabric that feels like your yoga pants. They’re comfortable, versatile and move with you. The big news is the footbed — we’ve added more arch support and a cushioned heel for even more comfort. The foam footbed has a sink-into-it softness while still giving you excellent rebound and shock absorption. Just what you need when you’re running around all day. We’ve also made the styling less athletic looking, making it more versatile for wherever you’re running off to next.
