5 starsPerfect for Red Hat shoes!

These clogs are true to size and very comfortable. The design is so different from anything else I've ever seen from Dansko. The fit in the heel and across the toes was perfect for my foot, and I was pleased with the degree of arch support. Love the color!!!

Vegan Shoes from Your Favorite Footwear Brand

If leather nursing shoes aren't your style, I have the perfect alternative for you. We recently introduced these two styles of the Dansko Volley Hopsack Clog to our medical shoe store and they're both 100% vegan (which means that none of the materials used in the shoe were derived from animals). These shoes consist of a nylon microfiber socklining and breathable canvas uppers with jersey lining. In addition to being animal-friendly these shoes are also more affordable than the leather styles and come in two floral prints. If you're looking for a pair of vegan shoes that are reliable and comfortable, look no further!

There's an app for that, and it's really helpful!

What is all this talk about Shape-ups and do they really work?


What is all this talk about Shape-ups and do they really work?

Shape-ups nursing shoes have always sounded like a miracle worker to me, claiming to improve posture, strengthen the back, tone/firm thigh muscles, firm calf muscles, improve blood circulation, tighten abdominal muscles and reduce knee-joint stress. So whenever I see nurses wearing Skechers Shape-ups I always ask them what they think. I am pleased to report that I haven’t heard a negative answer yet!
 
What about people that have had surgeries, back problems, foot problems, etc.?

Shape-ups feature a unique soft kinetic wedge insert and dynamic rolling bottom to simulate walking on soft sand. Your heel sinks comfortable into the soft ground as you step, naturally roll forward as your weight shifts to the center and your balance is centered, and easily push off with your toe pad. The improved posture can have a positive effect for many ailments. Many consumers have reported a relief in muscle tension and back/joint problems. Skechers has reported on clinical case studies performed in the US and Japan, check out the results here.
 
Do the different styles work the same?

They share the same midsole and outsole so they fit and feel the same. There are many styles to choose from. Check out all of the styles here. My personal favorites are the Awareness which help promote breast cancer awareness and the Sleek Fit because the mary-jane style is different than the tennis shoe style and is perfect for casual wear!


A customer review of the Metabolize:
I love these shoes. I wear them at the office and on the
unit in L and D. My feet never get sore anymore and I don't come home with swollen ankles anymore either. After three months of use, I can tell a difference in my posture and the tone in my legs. It does help. They are still so comfortable. Best money I ever spent. Better than cloggs. -Becky NP Irving,tx



I asked Heidi W. who is a long term and trusted employee what she thought of them. Since she owns four pairs I figured she would quite the expert! She said:
To me they are the best thing I could have bought. I wear them because they help with me knees and my back. They have so much support and cushion in them that when I am on my feet all day I don’t feel the hardness of the floor. They seem to make me stand better so that I am not putting stress on my lower back. When I go from them to regular shoes I can feel the pain in my lower back and knees right away. I do have more strength in my legs so they must be building the muscles up. I own 4 pair of these so that I can wear them as much as possible.


I want to know: Have you tried any of the Skechers Shape-ups? If so, what has been your experience?
