Medical Staff Needs Great Footwear, Too
Are You On Your Feet All Day at Work?
If you’re a nurse or medical staff employee, it’s possible that you’ll spend an entire 12-hour shift on your feet with few opportunities to sit. Many jobs require employees to walk and stand for long shifts. We’re going to focus on medical staff and nurses, but these tips can apply to other jobs, too.
Multiple studies have revealed the average distance that a nurse will walk during a 12-hour shift. Can you guess how far it is? Day shift nurses walk about 5 miles, and night shift nurses walk about 3 miles. That’s a significant distance! We’re thrilled to suggest some really awesome footwear just for you: Hoka One One.
Hoka Shoes For Nurses and Medical Staff
Why do we recommend Hoka shoes for nurses? Here’s our #1 reason.
- COMFORT! COMFORT! COMFORT! When you slide your feet into Hoka shoes, you’ll immediately feel the difference. The enhanced cushioning is an EVA foam that provides maximal cushioning in almost every one of their models. It’s a step above nearly every competitor in terms of the amount of marshmallow softness underfoot. Plus the memory foam collar cradles the ankle in plush comfort.
What else makes Hoka a great option for medical staff?
- WALKING ASSIST – Several Hoka models feature the Meta-Rocker, a Hoka exclusive. This technology propels you forward with each step, and it’s one of the reasons nurses enjoy the smooth ride of these shoes. Note that not every model has the shoe rocker, but the expert staff at St. Pete Running Company can show you which ones have it and which ones don’t.
- PERSONAL TESTIMONIES – When a nurse or medical staff employee comes back for another pair of Hoka shoes, we often hear the same type of story: they LOVED the shoes, their feet didn’t hurt for once, and they want more Hokas!
