3 Important Things To Look For In a Nursing Shoe

If you’ve ever had to work all day long on your feet, you know how important it is to have the right shoe on. Without a comfortable shoe that’s the right size for your feet, you can suffer from pain in your feet, legs and back that can quickly become unbearable. Let’s talk about what you need to look for to find the right nursing shoe to help you make it through that long shift!

How Comfortable Are They?

Your comfort is definitely the most important thing. As we stated above, having the right pair of shoes can make the difference between a great shift and debilitating pain. So when you’re in the store trying on your shoes, take the time to walk around in them until you’re absolutely sure that you love the way they feel. If you have any amount of discomfort, you’d better not take the risk. Just keep in mind that you’ll be walking around in these things for hours every day. Once you’ve picked a comfortable shoe, then you can worry about the way they look.

Finding The Right Look

Of course comfort is important, but you don’t just want to be comfortable, you want to look great doing it! So find a nursing shoe that really works with your individual style, maybe even find one that matches some of your favorite Blue Sky scrubs!


The hospital or other medical facility you work in is probably busy, and often you might have to speed walk around or even jog through the hallways to get from one place to another. To keep up with your busy work, you need a nursing shoe with the right traction and grip. Pay attention to how well the shoes that you try on can grip and keep you from slipping.

Now that you know what to look for in a  shoe, pick some out for yourself. But you’ll want some stylish, comfortable scrubwear to go with it! Visit the Blue Sky Co. website and feel free to browse our collection of medical doctor scrubs.
