Skechers Healthcare Shoes Top Picks
Aching feet are no fun. Extended hours on the feet are a common concern among healthcare workers. Supportive, well-made shoes are a must to keep every part of the skeleton system supported, from the feet and ankles to the hips and spine. And comfort is critical in order to stay laser-focussed on the essential tasks at hand.
If you're not in the know yet, consider this your guide: Skechers sneakers and work shoes check every box for quality, support, comfort, and style, making them a longtime favorite among healthcare workers. We’ve rounded up the top picks to help you find a pair that’ll care for your feet just as well as you care for your patients.
Tips for Choosing Skechers Healthcare Shoes
Lace Debate. Both classic lace-ups and slip-on styles are supportive and comfortable, so the choice comes down to your personal preference. If a typical day includes multiple shoe changes, a slip-on will keep you moving fast. If your feet are particularly narrow, a lace-up guarantees the most secure fit.
Slick Weather Tricks? If you’re an EMT, home-health worker, or other healthcare pro who regularly transitions from indoors to out, features like waterproof seams and extra-traction soles provide the performance you need, but still are comfy enough for all-day wear.
Count Your Steps. If you work in a relatively small office and spend a portion of the day seated, you may favor a streamlined, casual shoe with flexible support. Long hospital hallways? A full athletic shoe with deluxe cushioning will never let you down.
Diversify. Rotating during the day between two supportive work shoes can be better for your feet than an all-day affair.The initial investment will pay you back with happier feet over the long term, and each pair will last longer.
