In the field of nursing, having brilliant shoes can mean all the distinction. From stress, torment and afflictions down to physical wounds at work; guaranteeing you have the best shoes for your feet is significant to remaining upbeat for the duration of the day – and keeping you at an advanced execution amid your day of work.
Choosing the best nursing shoes might seem tiresome, after all, shoes are shoes, right?
With varying foot arches, support and sizing requirements for your comfort – choose the pair of shoes that feel the best, not the ones on sale.
Your feet are the core of your body; they encourage mobility, balance and movement. Wearing the proper shoes protects your body from long term injuries and other health issues that can arise from wearing improper fitting shoes.
Proper fitting shoes should cushion the feet, position the arch within the shoes so that it’s supported but not placing pressure on it and most importantly, they need to accommodate the size and shape of your feet.
Wearing proper shoes will keep your feet secure, helping you move around effortlessly. Having proper fitting shoes should also keep your feet in line with the spine and help promote healthy posture. Likewise, wearing a proper shoe will also keep your muscles loose and agile throughout the day—an important trait in any nurse.
Finally, wearing proper-fitting shoes helps you improve your stamina and endurance while on the job. Anyone who has worn shoes that are too tight, too “flat-foot” or too heavy can attest to the feeling of heavy feet. The sore achy muscles that simply prevent you from performing at your best.
