The best shoes for healthcare workers

The best shoes for healthcare workers

Finding the best shoes for healthcare workers can often be a challenge. As you would expect, if you’re a doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional you are on your feet most of the day so therefore what you wear on your feet makes a significant impact to your day.

Standing for hours in theatre or on a ward puts your lower extremities under a lot of stress. So, if you are consistently wearing unsupportive shoes, you could develop achy arches, joint pain and other uncomfortable problems.

In an ideal world, you need a shoe that is durable but also lightweight for comfort and for them to be able to keep up with the demands of your day-to-day role. In addition, a slip-resistant sole is key to avoid any injuries or falls.

Here at Kara, we are pleased to offer what we think is the best in its field for comfort, practicality and durability – Skechers. Skechers is a leading worldwide brand known for high-quality manufacture of footwear for men, women and children.
