The best clogs for nurses: a guide to choosing them.

Health professionals such as nurses often find themselves working under difficult conditions. Especially in shortage of staff, nurses are forced to work very long shifts, even 12-hour shifts. Their tasks are many: they include lifting patients, providing assistance with daily cleaning and eating. In case of emergencies, they are called upon to run from one side of the wards to the other, to assist patients as quickly as possible.

Spending many hours on their feet performing a wide variety of tasks can lead to serious health risks such as leg injuries, back pain and other foot-related problems. Therefore, a good pair of sanitary clogs can prevent heel, leg and back pain.

Things to consider before buying a pair of nursing clogs

Choosing a pair of healthcare footwear is not as easy as going to the nearest shop and buying any pair of shoes. As footwear is essential for the physical well-being and efficiency of nurses, it needs careful selection. Firstly, it is important to choose footwear that is PPE certified, i.e. conforms to the specific legislation. Secondly, style and design also play a role in the choice of footwear.

Let's take a look at the criteria for choosing sanitary footwear:

Dress code:  Some hospitals require nurses to have a specific dress code. White is often the colour of choice for uniforms, while for clogs the options can be different. Therefore, make sure you buy a clog that falls within the parameters required by the department.


Right size:

A perfect fit certainly helps healthcare professionals to work better, ensuring well-being for their feet. Therefore, it is essential to choose the right size by measuring the length and width of the feet.


 Comfort

Seeking comfortable footwear should be a priority for nurses, who spend most of their working hours on their feet.     

Even when additional safety features are required, it is always important not to lose sight of the comfort factor.


Choose a quality brand:

The consequences of not wearing high-quality work clogs with safety standards are severe. Therefore, it is always recommended to opt for brands with  years of experience behind them and a focus on the choice of materials for quality footwear.

After these basic principles, it is time to find out the most important features of nursing clogs. There are different types of clogs: with back-strap, without back-strap, closed, with toe cap or without it. Understanding what best suits your role is therefore crucial to choosing the right professional footwear.



Features to expect in high-quality nursing clogs


If you are wondering what characterises a quality and  and stylish pair of nursing clogs, here are the answers:


Arch support


Arch support is an essential element of a quality pair of clogs. Having the right support to the  arch contributes to comfort during work shifts, preventing feet pain.


Posture support


Nurses tend to develop physical problems such as arthritis, muscle cramps and fatigue due to the many hours they spend on their feet. Having adequate posture support helps enormously to prevent back pain and other leg problems and to make us safe and comfortable during working hours.

Slip resistance


The healthcare professional is very likely to incur in slips, and fall injuries. The slippery and damp floors of the working environment are the main reason behind it. A good pair of clogs come with anti-slip sole will help to prevent the risk of slipping.

 Lightness


Since nurses work for long work shifts, lightness is one of the main characteristics to seek for in the clogs. Besides that, another important characteristic is the presence of lateral windows, which ensure the right ventilation of the foot during the wear.
