Proper Footwear.
"Make sure you buy comfortable shoes," the seniors warned. Third year medicine spent in the hospital would not be a walk in the park. I always had decent shoes over the years but the time had come for me to invest in some higher end gear.
Given the nature of my partner and I’s work in the hospital - her in nursing and I in medicine - we have bought shoes together; matching pairs no less. 
After a whole day spent fitting, standing, and walking, we settled on the Nike Downshifter 4 for its comfort and value. This pair of shoes will complement my office pair of Sketchers.
What shoes do you wear to work with longevity and comfort in mind? Leave your answers below.
