Why Are Nurse mates Shoes the Best?

The reason that Nurse mates are the best shoes for nursing is that they are specifically designed for the stress and wear and tear that nurses face. I saw a nurse yesterday wearing some running shoes with mesh that looked extremely dirty and a little unprofessional. For nurses that do not have the shoe protectors on regularly, blood, and any type of fluids can easily permanently stain general athletic shoes.

The mesh on the athletic shoes is almost impossible to clean which I why I prefer and would definitely recommend nurse mates. The nurse mates are usually made with a leather finish that is both durable and easy to clean. Also, leather shoes can actually be polished and conditioned if they are scuffed and will still look as good as new.

The construction of the nurse mates is incredible as well. The shoes usually have the athletic flexibility with actual steel for superior stability and support. The outsole is usually well made and will withstand the demands of continual walking thourghout the day.

Many nurses usually purchase running shoes for nursing however it you really think about it, that doesn't make sense. People don't use running shoes for playing any other sport because they are made for running and not much else. If someone plays soccer, they don't use running shoes, because soccer shoes are specially made to better handle control the ball. The nursemates are essentially the same in that they are made specifically for walking, spills, comfort and extra support and stability. The leather upper is also able to be polished and looking as good as new for years to come.

Nursemates are affordable as well. Compared to some other nursing brands that cost $100-$200 per pair, the Nursemates normally run half of that amount. Although nursing salaries are relatively high in most of the United States, everyone loves a good deal and the savings are incredible for these shoes.

Nurse Mates shoes come in a wide variety of colors and styles to fit pretty much any need the colors and styles can coordinate very well with scrub uniforms and nursing attire. As I said before shoes are specifically made for nursing they are specifically made for nurses. When you buy shoes such as a nurse means you know that you were getting a product that was actually designed with nurses and nurse duties in mind.

On a personal note, Nurse Mates are the only shoes that I would buy. I can’t afford $200 for Allegra nursing shoes, and I actually think that the nurse mate shoes are just as good, and look better. I've never found my Nurse Mates nursing shoes to wear out any faster than some of the more expensive brands. Sometimes when you purchase an expensive pair of shoes you are getting better quality, but other times when you purchase an expensive pair of shoes you are simply paying for the brand. With a nursing aides I think that you are getting the best of both worlds a high quality brand and you're getting a high quality shoe.
