The long shift-timings, the need to work under extreme stress and walking from pillar to post within the hospital is what strikes our mind when we think of nurses. Considering all these, the sports apparel giant Nike has introduced a new range of shoes specifically designed for our “everyday heroes” of the medical industry – Nike Zoom Pulse. With the bespoke shoes, one need not whine about the constant feet pain during long working hours.
The unisex Nike shoes come with a full rubber outsole, a flexible midsole and a padded heel cup. All in all, the new range of shoes seem to be offering great traction, apt for the nurses who “walk at least four to five miles and sit for less than an hour during a 12 hour shift.” With the elastic straps and a lace-less upper, the water-resistant Nike shoes are made easy to be put on and cleaned.
But if you think you have missed out on the chance to wear those brand new shoes just because you are not a nurse, well, fret not! Nike has been considerate enough in manufacturing a gamut of different colours: black, teal, grey, pink and gold shades. Now anyone can don those well-made shoes on duty, in the park or at mall.
Whether it is the timeless Air force shoes, the classic Cortez or the strong-built Jordan, Nike has been winning our hearts for decades. With the release of Nike Zoom Pulse that has been specially crafted for nurses, we have one more reason to adore this brand.
The product was tested at the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon and Nike said that “100 percent of the profits will be donated to the hospital”. The brand is set to drop those sneakers on December 13, 2019.
However, a major concern for many people is the fact that even though the shoes have been manufactured in light of the long shift hours of nurses, the pricing which is $120 seems to be slightly over the odds.
