Ventilation

Nurses spend many hours on their shifts, wearing the same shoes for that long tends to get sweaty and uncomfortable, resulting in smelly feet which is embarrassing. Airflow is crucial especially for people who wear their shoes for that long. This might pose a problem because the nurses encounter spills and splashes which could seep into the holes meant for ventilation.

Support and Balance

Spending such a long time on shifts, you require shoes that will support your structure and provide you with balance. Without support and balance, your 12-hour shift will seem like 18 hours because of the discomfort and pain you tend to experience in such shoes.

Fit

This goes without saying. Of all the problems a nurse faces, tight shoes should not be one of them. This has a tendency of causing sores and blisters on foot and leading to general discomfort and tiredness. Your nursing shoes must be a good fit, not too tight to the extent it hurts and not too loose that it slips off. That in-between fit is what you want for a pleasant shift.

Comfort

Padding in shoe aid comfort, lack of padding leads to discomfort which in turn leads to sores on the feet. Wearing well-padded top nursing shoes can help alleviate this problem.

Grip

A good nursing shoe should not be susceptible to slips whether on a dry or wet surface. Nurses move quickly; they have to confident enough in their shoes to walk quickly without harming themselves and others.

Outer Material

The choice of outer material plays a huge role in the comfort in terms of ventilation of nursing shoes. Leather shoes especially white ones allow the foot to breathe thereby reducing sweatiness. Rubber shoes, on the other hand, are a cheaper, easy to clean option but offer less ventilation and comfort as compared to the leather ones.

Insoles

Most nursing shoes come with removable insoles. This can be very beneficial if you have a foot condition like flat feet. That way you can purchase custom orthotic arch support insoles to support your fallen arch; this reduces the pain and provides support for the body weight.
