Shoes?

Recommended Posts

I'll be starting rotations next year and am thinking about asking for shoes for Christmas - I know they can be pretty expensive and if I can get them as a gift, that would be awesome! Does anyone have any recommendations (favorite brand/style/etc.)? I would get solid black tennis shoes, but I'm afraid that they would be seen as too informal. Or would they be okay? Please help!

Most rotations at least in our program have been okay with scrubs with tennis shoes. I wear adidas i5923's and they have adidas' BOOST sole which is like walking on clouds. 

My vote is any Adidas with their Boost sole.

Anywhere you wear scrubs:  just wear comfortable tennis shoes, surgery included.  

Business casual/formal - as a female I got away with a few pairs of flats from target for the year.  

I'd personally avoid black tennis shoes unless you have some underlying foot problem that requires support, but that's just me.

I've worn lots of shoes. I bet if I think about it real hard I can remember first pair of shoes. Mama said they'd take me anywhere. She said they was my magic shoes.

I wore all-black tennis shoes to my outpatient/office rotations. I kept them clean and dressed professionally and no one commented negatively. I actually had one preceptor mention I was one of the first students to not come in uncomfortable dress shoes (and she confirmed she was fine with my choice). Of course, this likely varies by preceptor, so YMMV, but at the very least, I don't think it'd hurt to ask.
