Miss PumpkinPenguin:  I believe the brand is lifestrides. I got them at DSW and they are a life saver plus cute too. They have nice insoles, work appropritae look and nothing too sky high in the heels. I wore them all the time at my last job and kept the shoes just because they are so comfy. Plan to even wear them to a wedding soon.

I came to recommend lifestrides & see it has already been recommended. They have some good styles.  The style I bought last was Belinda.

Miss PumpkinPenguin:  Nike Air by Col Haan and Sofft are my go to brands for comfortable shoes.

I’d second Clarks. Especially the ones with the special super soft insoles! They keep releasing new versions of soles with different supports but go try them on 😀 

 

I work in the hospital setting and I spend the entire day dashing from patient to patient as well so I hear you on the sore feet part- my Clarks were literally the only shoes that didn’t leave me with sore heels and foot bed!

Miss PumpkinPenguin:  Jumping in this thread cause I’m in the same boat! I walk around a hospital all day fixing computer/software stuff and my feet are in hooooorrible pain all the time. I have tried Clarks, Earth Origins and several types of sneakers but they didn’t seem to do much or wear quickly since I am essentially walking for 6-7 hours a day. My next attempt will be those Sketchers memory foam thingies, hopefully they work…or it may be time to look into a different position. 🙁 Better luck to you!

Miss PumpkinPenguin:  If you are looking for dressy type shoes and not tennis shoes, I also recommend Clarks. Very comfortable!

I have a pair of black shoes with a very slight wedge that’s by Dr. Scholl’s and they work prety well. You want to look for something with a thick sole/padding under the foot.

White Mountain makes comfortable shoes too. Also, check on a nurses board and find a thread on shoes. Nurses always have comfortable shoes. What about crocks?

I would look into what the nurses wear. Maybe ask a few for recommendations. That is what I did when I worked in a hospital setting (I ended up with an Australian brand called Homeyped). 

Also maybe ask the HR dept if they have a clothing contractor that they recommend to staff. You may find they offer a better deal than buying on your own.

Danskos, timberland pro actually makes a great nursing shoe too but I haven’t tried them yet.  I mostly stick to danskos and sanita brand, or just a pair of good sneakers.  The Danita’s run narrow.  I would try to find a uniform store and try on some shoes there.

Danskos or Sanita clogs.  I am a reading specialist and so I walk through school every day (like all around, going from class to class), constantly, and Sanita clogs are my go-to shoe.  My feet never hurt in them.  LOVE THEM.
