There is much controversy among health care professionals over which shoes are best to wear for working eight to twelve hour days. However, many nurses feel that Nurse Mates can be very comfortable. Many nurses and health care workers complained about their feet getting sore after their shifts. Although the Nurse Mates have been the industry standard for many years, many now favor the New Balance Walking Shoe or the Naturalizer for its comfort and durability. Dansko is another brand that is very popular. This is a brand that is not only expensive but is also very comfortable. Dr. Scholl’s gel socks are also popular for relieving pressure from the back while working long hours. Many professionals recommend custom-made orthotics. However, it can be costly at $150 per pair for some.
