These shoes are amazingly comfortable! Although I am not a nurse, a friend had recommended them for the sheer comfort and durability aspect. I work and live in NYC, where you are never standing still, not for a second, and have been looking for comfortable shoes that look good, professional, comfortable, good quality, and will not make me skip a meal so I could afford them. These shoes are it! Your feet will thank you. They are so light and EXTREMELY comfortable. I own two pairs in black, two different styles, both made by Nurse Mates. Theses are 10X better than Rockports or Clarks. Buy with confidence. You will not regret it.
