The feet are the foundation of the body. Our feet support us as we stand and walk, while absorbing shock with each step that we take. They are so important to our physical health and well-being that they contain ¼ of the bones of our whole body! Because we rely on them so much, they tend to have a lot of problems if not taken care of properly. In fact, three out of every four Americans experience a foot problem in their lifetime. Women tend to suffer from four times as many foot problems as men, largely due to their choice of footwear.
A properly designed pair of shoes can protect your feet from shock, which will help keep the rest of your body healthy. This is where Medical Scrubs Mall comes in! Our medical shoes were designed for people who are on their feet all day, so you know they will protect your feet better than any regular pair of sneakers. Sneakers tend to wear out easily, since the average person takes about 8-10,000 steps every day. That’s about 115,000 miles in our lifetime, which is equivalent to walking around the Earth four times! That’s a lot of wear-and-tear on those old shoes! It is with this in mind that brands such as AnyWear, Cherokee, Dansko and Klogs designed their shoes.
When choosing the right nursing shoe for your needs, it is important to choose a pair with the right features. The American Podiatric Medical Association recommends shoes with “reinforced heels, wider toe room, composition sole, and a relatively wider heel with a padded heel counter” for women. For men, the recommendation is “cushion-sole shoes that give good support.” As I stated earlier, women are more likely to have issues with their feet, which is why they are recommended to wear more padded shoes.
At Medical Scrubs Mall, we know that comfort and durability are important in a medical shoe, and we make it our mission to provide our customers with the support that they need. To see our full line of medical footwear, please visit www.MedicalScrubsMall.com.
