But before we get into it, let’s help you understand what makes a great comfortable nurse shoe.



What should I look for when buying Best Tennis Shoes for Nurses?

GREAT ARCH SUPPORT

Comfortable nurse shoes should help keep you on your feet with minimum pain and fatigue. Therefore, they should offer you arch support to keep your feet from flattening out and help limit pronation.


SLIP RESISTANCE

Since most nursing environments are surrounded by liquids and spills, slip-resistant shoes are essential. For the most part, a good slip-resistant shoe can prevent you from slip injuries.


SHOCK ABSORPTION

Walking on hard surfaces 10+ hours can take a toll on your feet, knees, and back. Therefore, a good comfortable nurse shoe should help minimize or absorb harmful shock from the ground up. Good shock absorbing shoes are made with thick rubber outsoles for shock-absorption and traction.


HIGH QUALITY, LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIAL

The quality of the shoe material is just as important as comfort. Leather is always the best choice for its durability, life, and breathability. Also, it is lightweight so it’s less weight on your feet.
