Hoka Shoes have grown in popularity over the last few years. Originally known by most people for their chunky soles, they have really refined their shoes to become one of the market leaders, in our opinion. As foot and ankle specialists, we understand the stress places on your body when standing all day and we have created some recommendations for Hoka Shoes for Nurses based on our clinical experience.

Best Hoka Shoes For Nurses

Best Hoka Shoes for Nurses with Flat Feet

We recommend the Hoka Arahi 6 Shoes for Nurses with Flat Feet due to their cushioning, medial arch support and J-Frame midsole.

The responsive cushioning reduces the impact on your feet that you can experiencing when walking and standing.

The medial arch support helps to tilt your foot outwards, supporting the sole of the foot and reducing the risk of conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis.

Best Hoka Shoes for Nurses with Normal Arch Height

We recommend the Hoka Bondi 8 for Nurses with a normal arch height due to their plush cushioning, neutral sole and 4mm heel drop.

The plush cushioning allows your feet to sink into the sole, like you’re walking on a cloud during a long shift. The neutral sole means that there is no additional tilt or angles of support that is present in a stability trainer, this is important as the additional support of a stability shoe is not needed for a normal or high arch.

The 4mm heel drop maintains an even distribution of force across the feet and knees when standing.

Best Hoka Shoes for Nurses for Theatre

We recommend the Ora Recovery Slide 2 for wearing in theatre due to their EVA sole, meta-rocker and dual-layer footbed.

The EVA sole is the material that we use to make insoles, creating a supportive but lightweight sole.

The rocker allows a smooth push-off through the gait cycle but it also allows you to rock back and forth while standing to alter the location of pressure on your feet and isn’t present in Crocs.
