Dumb question for our nurses...

Recommended Posts

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.

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).cheesy.gif

    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
    • So long story short I want to have my wedding in Jamaica in December. However, it's booked up. So next option is Cancun. I am going to be doing a Tamil Sri Lankan South Asian wedding. I want a 5 star hotel.  I was set on Royalton as that is where I always go and love it. However, it seems really pricy for the wedding. I am looking to have 30-40 people.  I want to spend the least amount of money ... Doesn't everyone!  I want to know what 5 star chain or resort provides the best deals for weddings? I would love to know about Moon Palace( I can't get a hold of anyone!)  If there are any other ones please let me know!
