4 Questions to Help Frontline Workers Pick the Right Nurses Shoes!

How long do you stay on your feet per day?

The amount of time you spend on your feet every day can feel like an eternity. With the wrong shoes on! If you spend long (8-12 hours) on your feet, it is recommended that you go for shoes with good support systems. Like running shoes. Plus high-quality foam beds are preferable for cushioning. 

Do you know your foot type?

There are 4 basic foot types. If you don’t know your foot type and are experiencing foot, hip, and/or back pains at work, check with a foot specialist. Specific shoe recommendations may solve your problems!

Do you suffer from any medical issues?

Lingering back pain or aching heels at the end of the day doesn’t always mean there’s something wrong with your musculoskeletal system. Not providing your feet with cushion support, toe alignment, and heel-to-toe comfort may be the problem. Check with a foot specialist or podiatrist for medical shoe recommendations. And therapeutic items. Such as the Gel Toe Separator for bunion pain relief.

Do you experience work hazards?

If your job role requires you to deal with emergency situations, being prepared for hazardous and sticky situations is crucial for your and others’ safety. Resort to shoes that are slip-resistant. With outsoles designed for traction. Also, make sure they are a perfect fit and shock absorbant to ensure stability. 

Protect Your Feet While Protecting Us With Nurses Shoes!

It is important for healthcare workers to wear shoes that are lightweight, offer traction and resistance, and provide footbed support. Compression socks are also advisable to alleviate foot stress and improve blood circulation. When the risk of catching numerous viruses is high, we want these workers to be free from any foot-related pains that may affect their performance. When it comes to picking the right shoes, the number one deciding factor is matching a shoe to one’s work lifestyle and medical condition. The rest falls into place. 

This blog is in honor of the frontline workers that are putting their lives on the line to fight the coronavirus pandemic. As for the rest of you out there, please stay home and stay safe!
