Nurses are on their feet a lot and comfortable shoes are a must. I have purchased shoes in the past that seemed comfortable and after wearing them for several hours, they became unbearable. If you don’t have comfortable shoes it can throw your gait off and you'll not only end up with aching feet, but you will have a sore back and sore legs too!…not fun.

Dansko’s are very comfortable shoes, although it can take a little while to get used to them. They are all handmade and feel quite hard. Ironically, although they are hard they are great for nurses who are on their feet all day. They are loose in the back and that’s normal. You will adjust to this and will be glad you gave them the adjustment period. I began wearing Dansko’s after I developed Plantar Fasciitis. They helped me tremendously, because of the arch support. I also noticed that my legs were not as tired after a 12-hour-shift and I appreciated that, as most nurses would. Here are some of the great Dansko Styles:

Timberland makes a heck of a shoe. Do I sound partial to them? Well, that's probably because I am. I love the Timberland Renova. It's my favorite shoe of all time and the best selling nursing shoe. If you haven't tried these shoes you don't know what you're missing. If you want to feel like you're walking on air, then this is the best shoe for you. They are made with a special "anti-fatigue technology" Your feet will hold up well during a long shift, but your legs will thank you too. I used to get terrible pain in my legs after a 12-hour shift, till I began wearing these shoes. The Timberland Renova really can't be beat for comfort. They have some really cute designs in the Timberland brand that bring style to a new level.
Another shoe that is amazing for nurses is the Easy Spirit. These shoes are made for walking and for people who spend a lot of time on their feet. They're comfortable, flexible and durable. For the comfort they provide the price is very affordable and they have some great colors and styles.
If you prefer a tennis shoe for work as some nurses do, the best and most comfortable tennis shoe for nurses is the ASICS Women's GEL-Kayano 21 Running Shoe. They are made for the continuous impact of running and the gel technology makes you feel like you're walking on air. Asics make amazing shoes for comfort and style and the GEL-Kayano is their most popular shoe. You only have to try them and you'll see why.

Made from a combo of leather and synthetic with mesh, this women's work shoe is engineered to keep you on your feet and in comfort until the end of your shift, from the OrthoLite foam sockliner, to GEL cushioning, to Trusstic construction to lighten the weight. The durable AHAR outsole performs like a champ on wet, slick surfaces.
If you're watching your budget then the Unisex Croc is a good choice. These are comfortable shoes with a low price tag. The only problem I see with this shoe is that it's not ideal for a lot of nurses who work with body fluids, because of the holes in the top and sides. But one of the things I do like is the fact that you can clean them with a damp cloth.
