Somewhere right now a nurse is working a double shift. Somewhere right now a nurse is skipping their lunch break to service the patient they care for. Somewhere right now a nurse is missing out on their child’s dance recital covering a sick coworkers shift. Inevitably somewhere right now a nurse is complaining about their sore arches and uncomfortable feet wishing their shift was over.
Everyone knows nurses are on their feet 90 % of their shift. Have you ever met a nurse with a pedometer? Nurses blaze mile markers in their shoes. Clopping around all day or night back and forth usually on a hard concrete floor.
Out loud they are asking patients “How do you feel today.” In their minds they are screaming at the top of their lungs “I need foot rub. My feet are killing me. Does anyone care?.”
At Family Footwear Center we care about your feet . We know you work hard and many of you need a comfortable and supportive shoe to get you through those long grueling shifts. We know it is difficult to put a smile on your face when your feet are throbbing.
