Healthcare clogs are popular work shoes for doctors and nurses. They're practical and have other excellent features that make them comfortable and supportive shoes for work. Here are the pros of healthcare clogs when working in the medical industry.
Clogs are supportive shoes. As they're ergonomically designed for employees in the healthcare industry, they offer support when you're standing in a 6-hour surgery or doing night rounds. The interior shape of clogs supports the arch of your feet to help reduce the chance of sores and aches in your feet, legs or back.
By appearance, you might think clogs aren't comfortable shoes. However, when you try them on, you can see why they're popular shoes for work.
The insole design helps support your entire foot and provides excellent comfort. As they're open shoes, they keep your feet feeling cool. When you're on a 12-hour shift, having sweaty feet is uncomfortable: clogs stop your feet from overheating.
Zinc: slip-resistant and easy to wash & clean
If we look back over time to the medieval period upto the industrial revolution, farmers and then other labourers wore clogs because they were hardy shoes and can be easily changed.
The practicality of being able to quickly slip clogs on and off makes them great shoes when you're working in hygienic work conditions (where you don't want to touch your shoes) and you're required to work fast. When sleeping in the on-call room, it takes seconds to get your clogs on and make your way to the ward.
As you already know, having a high standard of hygiene in a hospital is crucial. It reduces the spread of harmful germs and deadly infections.
One of the best advantages of clogs is they can be quickly and easily cleaned. Simply wiping down with a clean cloth or washing them in the sink is easy. As they're made of rubber, they don't take long to dry so you don't have to find a replacement pair until your favourite shoes have dried thoroughly.
When you buy high quality work clogs, they last longer compared to other average shoes. Buying cheap trainers for work will provide short-term comfort because over time, they will deterioate. They're not designed for working laborious hours in a hospital while healthcare shoes are specially designed for nurses and doctors. When buying clogs, you're investing in shoes that will last longer than three months so you're getting your money's worth.
For your own safety at work, it's important to wear slip-resistant shoes. They hugely decrease the chance of suffering a slip or fall at work. Clogs have effective grip on slippery surfaces. Another reason why they're so popular with doctors and nurses.
