Nursing requires a lot of time on your feet, and no matter how conditions your feet are in this routine, having the right footwear can improve comfort and reduce the pain levels and discomfort you experience by the end of a shift. We see a lot of nurses in our clinics for foot and knee pain secondary to their work, and we have created a list of recommendations for you that we usually provide to our patients in our clinics.

The best Asic shoes for Nurses should have Flytefoam cushioning, adequate stability and cushioning based on foot type. We have recommended 3 types of Asics based on the most common foot types.
We recommend Asics GT-2000 for Nurses with low arch height due to their medial arch support, heel cup support and Flytefoam cushioning.
The medial arch posting supports the arch of the foot when standing while helping to control pronation moments when walking.
The deep heel cup helps to control the ankle joint, and Flytefoam cushioning provides comfort to the sole of your foot.Buy Now
We recommend the Asics Gel-Cumulus Shoes for Nurses with normal arch height due to their 8mm heel drop, neutral support and a mixture of Flytefoam and FF BLAST™ cushioning.
The 8mm heel drop ensures an even distribution of weight from heel to forefoot walking and standing, while the neutral sole means the bed of the shoe is flat, which is perfect for someone with a normal arch height.
The Mixture of cushioning provides a plush cushion that is also responsive when you need to walk quickly or break into a jog.Buy Now
We recommend the Asics Gel-Nimbus Shoes for Nurses with high arches due to their neutral sole and FF BLAST™ Plus cushioning.
People with high arches generally have a two-prong walking gait with considerable pressure placed on the heel and forefoot and therefore having maximum cushioning for impact is vital; the FF BLAST™ Plus cushioning of the Gel-Nimbus provides this without being too heavy.Buy Now
