7 Nursing Shoes That Are Stylish Enough to Wear Everyday

With everyone watching their wallets these days, footwear that does double duty is a no-brainer. For today’s healthcare workers that means styles that meet the required on-the-job safety standards and pick up on comfort silhouettes — like clogs, Mary Janes and sneakers — that can transition from work to weekend wear.

Since safety is a top priority, these looks are designed with uppers that wipe clean and slip-resistant outsoles. And, since nurses are often on 12-hour shifts, these styles also feature padded footbeds for essential underfoot support.

Here, FN has curated a collection of colorful, stylish duty looks that work both on and off the hospital floor.
