Our doctors and nurses work hard and they deserve a bit of comfort.
So Nike has created a range of shoes that are practical and comfortable for long days treating patients.
The Nike Air Zoom Pulse collection features a laceless, easy clean design with a rubber outsole and a flexible drop-in midsole to make them comfortable to wear for long periods.
Nike describes the shoes as like a ‘soft, snug hug’ with a coated toe box to protect against any type of spill.
The traction pattern on the sole means doctors and nurses will have plenty of grip, even if they run into a spill on the floor too.
They tested the shoes at the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon.

They found that the nurses there walk approximately four to file miles and sit for less than an hour during a 12-hour shift so their shoes are important.
The Nike Air Zoom Pulse is a shoe for everyday heroes: nurses, doctors, home health providers and others who work tirelessly to support patients.
The six designs have been created by patients at the hospital and all profits from the sale of the shoes will go to OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
