I am beginning school for medical billing and coding, and we are required to wear scrubs as our uniforms. We are required to wear white "nursing shoes" or white sneakers. I don't own a decent pair of sneakers, and since I am very unsure as to what exactly "nursing shoes" even are, if they even exist, so I found these. They are SO supportive and so very comfy! I have very severe arthritis in my knees and back, despite being 31 years old, so supportive shoes are extremely important to use, and these sneakers totally have the arch and heel support I need. I allowed my mother to try them on, and now we are getting another pair for each of us I cannot recommend these any more highly than I do at 100 percent!
