Disclaimer – Timberland PRO gave a free pair of Renova shoes for reviewing purposes.
When I first started nursing school I bought two pair of shoes the first one (New Balance all white) for clinical, and the second one was (Reebok Zig-Techs) for all wear/jogging. As it turned out the New Balance shoes were horrible, I could barely stand on my feet for the first 3 hours of my clinical. So I switched to my Zigs which were very comfortable but not something I wanted to wear at the hospital so I was on the hunt to find the perfect work/clinical/hospital shoe.
After I got my CNA job on a surgical floor the “norm” was to buy those plastic type/durable shoes filled with holes known as Crocs for practical spillage reasons. It didn’t take long to realize Crocs made my feet hot and sweaty, and my back painful after an 8 hour or 12 hour shift. Quickly I changed my mind and went back to my Zigs.
On my most recent adventure I was nearly ready to buy a pair of Dankos that retailed at $120 and I nearly pulled the trigger but decided against it. After trying them on in the store my feet hurt within minutes so I said forget it. I settled on a pair of Nursemates slip-on shoes that were comfortable around the house but quickly became just the opposite after a few hours on the floor. None of the supposed nursing shoes were working out for me, so guess what I went back to…you guessed right my Zigs.
What a great incentive to go out and try a pair of your own right? You can view the entire collection at the following website http://timberlandpro.com/#renova for yourself.
Now I can go back to wearing my Zigs for what they were meant for everyday/jogging wear.
