    We are having a converstion at work about comfy shoes. What kind of shoes do you all wear? I had said I thought a lot of medical folks wore Crocs, another lady thinks there is another shoe that sounded like Birkenstock but wasnt actually the sandal. Anyone know what it is?

      I wear crocs in the kitchen all the time! They are amazing! They do have some professional styles that have different names.

      I also know a lot of people who wear Danskos and Rocket Dogs.

        Dansco (sp?) is what my friends swear by if they're on their feet all day.

          Def Danskos-I have 3 cousins that are nurses. I'm a hairstylist and some of my co-workers wear them too.

                Danskos are the ONLY way to go!

                I can seriously work 6 12 hour shifts in a row and my feet never hurt. I'm dying after 2 hours in tennis shoes.

                I even have a couple "normal" looking Danskos that I wear everyday. My feet are kinda used to them since I work so much and get mad when I wear real shoes now lol.

                I have really cute black patent ones for work...

                    lol... I've been off since Sunday morning. I slept yesterday until noon, then slept last night- I'm back on a day schedule for the week now. Today I'm catching up on my 500 bazillion design projects I'm behind on! lol I really don't sleep much. I often stay up 36 hours straight, or sleep a total of 10 hours in 3 days. Yeah, I'm crazy...

                      The advantage of wearing a shoe like Danskos is they have a stiffer sole so when you are on your feet all day, your foot doesn't have to work as hard. They have minimal arch support. Birkenstocks have a built in arch support and good support. Crocs are comfortable but they are made of a softer material and breakdown easier than a stiffer shoe so you have to replace them more often. The best thing to do is try shoes on at the end of the day when your feet are more swollen and tired and see what feels best to you. Shoes will not "break in" and get more comfortable after you wear them so make sure you like them in the store. Send me a PM if you have any other questions (I'm a podiatrist).
