When you’re regularly participating in hospital surgeries, it’s worthwhile to wear suitable and supportive footwear. Standing for long hours can be harmful for your feet, legs and back, especially when your shoes don’t provide effective support. This is why it’s important to wear surgery clogs. These shoes are specially designed for doctors and nurses participating in surgeries. If you’re not convinced, here are all the benefits of wearing surgery clogs.
1. Supports your posture
Having sore legs after a 12 hour shift is a common problem for doctors and nurses. Being on your feet for most of your shift, lifting heavy equipment and conducting intense procedures can put immense pressure on your joints.
There are ways you can reduce painful aches in your back and feet, such as doing regular exercises and stretches. Just having a good night’s sleep can help your body recover. But one of the best ways to support your posture is by wearing surgery clogs.
Healthcare shoes are designed for professionals in the healthcare industry. They have comfortable insoles and sturdy interior support that provides extra support and helps you avoid straining your back.
2. Ergonomically designed to enhance productivity
If you’re wearing a pair of your favourite high street shoes or other casual footwear for work, while these look good on the outside, they don’t have the features you need for support. Surgery clogs are ergonomically designed to be worn in surgeries and around the hospital, they are prepared for the demands of your job.

3. Easy to clean
As shoes designed to be worn in surgeries are usually made from leather or rubber, they are easy to wash and clean. If liquids splash on your feet during surgery, it’s important you have footwear you can easily clean and wear straightaway. Making sure your locker is filled with spare shoes is just not practical.
Work shoes are made from higher quality materials compared to everyday shoes because they need to last longer. By wearing surgery clogs, you know they’re designed for working in highly demanding work environments.
At Shoes For Crews (Europe) Ltd. all our healthcare work shoes are made from high quality materials so you can be confident your shoes will last longer.
5. Effective grip on slippery floors
When working in a hospital, one of the biggest hazards is slippery floors. Cleaners regularly clean the floors but when you’re rushing to see patients, you cannot always see what’s on the floor ahead of you. In surgeries, your attention is fixed on your patient, watching to see if there are slip hazards on the floor is usually a second thought.
Slip-resistant surgery clogs provide extra grip on slippery floors which greatly reduces the chance of slips, trips and falls.
