When your profession involves anything from running alongside a gurney to standing for hours in the ER or operating room, the right shoes are a must. “You now see all kinds of medical professionals on hospital floors wearing running shoes that are designed to stand up to a lot of stress and strain,” says Karen Langone, DPM, a podiatrist based in Southampton, New York. Clogs are also a good choice, says Howard Friedman, DPM, a Suffern, New York-based podiatrist. They tend to have a wide toe box, which helps accommodate feet as they naturally expand throughout the day. This is why you often see surgeons and other health professionals wearing them in the operating room, Friedman says.

To help keep pain at bay, you’ll want to pick up at least two pairs of supportive sneakers or clogs. (Or one of each!) A shoe's cushioning becomes completely compressed after six hours or so and no longer offers support, Friedman cautions. So having two great pairs allows you to change halfway through your shift.
