One of the downsides of working as a Nurse is the amount of time you spend on your feet. Prolonged periods on your feet can result in overuse conditions of the foot, such as Plantar Fasciitis, Capsulitis, Bruised Heels and Metatarsalgia. New Balance shoes offer a range of show widths and types of support, so we have taken the hard work out for you by providing 3 of our most recommended types of New Balance Shoes for Nurses based. On your foot type.

New Balance Shoes For Nurses

New Balance Shoes for Nurses with Flat Feet

We recommend the Fresh Foam X 860v13 for Nurses with flat feet due to their X midsole, medial arch support, and wide fit.

The X midsole alongside the medial arch support helps to control the pronation moments associated with flat feet while encouraging a normal roll-through of the foot during the gait cycle.

The wide fit and the comfortable upper mesh allow the foot to spread to take the pressure of your feet during a long shift.

New Balance Shoes for Nurses with a Normal Arch Height

We recommend the FuelCell Propel v3 New Balance Shoes for Nurses with a normal arch height due to their neutral sole, Fuelcell Foam and cushioned soles.

The neutral arch height is important as a stability shoe could excessively supinate your foot through the gait cycle and in standing, this can overload the Peroneal Muscles.

The Fuel Cell foam is a firm level of cushioning that provides shock absorption but doesn’t allow the foot to sink; this is important to prevent excessive pronation moments and reduces the risk of overloading the Plantar Fascia.

New Balance Shoes for Nurses with High Arches

We recommend the New Balance Women’s Fresh Foam X 1080 Unlaced V1 for Nurses with high arches due to their Fresh Foam X cushioning and hypoknit upper mesh design.

People with high arches tend to have a two-pronged walking gait rather than a role through motion, so extra cushioning helps protect the heel and forefoot from excessive pressure.

The hypoknit top cover is snug in all the right places, and the easy slip-on and off work perfectly.
