A white nursing shoe is the traditional look for many hospitals. Yet, the Cherokee Women’s Mambo Work Shoe is out to show that there can also be a contemporary, attractive look to the shoe and enough features to make sure that nurses are happy to wear them long term. This means a good fit, a simple shape and enough support and cushioning for a comfortable feel all day long.
There are some interesting feature in this nurse’s shoe with the design and fit
Not all nurses like to wear lace-up shoes on the wards, so a slip on shoe is much more convenient. Here there are no laces to come loose and pose a safety hazard during a busy day. Also, this slip-on shoe has a double goring system on the top to allow for a better fit. This also means that there is some adaptability in the shape of the shoe, should feet get a little tired and swollen during the day. The other practical elements to this shoe are the strong slip-resistant sole and the quality of the leather.
This slip on shape is probably the most noticeable feature on first impressions of sales photos. This is because this Cherokee shoe goes down the route of providing a pretty plain looking nursing shoe that meets the standards of the stricter establishments. There is a very streamlined shape here, with a minimal 1.5’’ heel, and the shape of the upper and components is minimal. In fact, some users have mentioned that they were complimented on these shoes because they were not as bulky and ugly as some of the more standard nursing shoes. The only detail and colour come from a small bit of branding on the side and the lining on the inside. The uppers of the shoes come in just black or white.
These clean white nursing shoes are also one of the best options for a lightweight feel and long-term comfort on the ward
With such a minimal design, much of the focus in the creation of this shoe comes with the comfort features. That colourful lining is breathable to keep feet as cool and dry and possible for those long shifts where nurses are continually on their feet. There is also plenty of cushioning on the inside to keep feet secure and supported and the mid-sole is made from lightweight dbl. This hasn’t gone unnoticed with wearers that appreciate the light feel of these shoes when walking around. Another nice consideration here is the fact that these shoes come in wide sizes to accommodate a larger range of users.
In the end, most users agree that the Cherokee Women’s Mambo Work Shoe is comfortable, especially on wider, flatter feet, and easy to put on and off. The combination of the style, comfort and practical features really does come together to create a shoe that many nurses will love to wear for long periods. The wide fit and slip-on style won’t suit everyone, but this shoe does fill a gap in the market for those that struggle with some traditional nurse’s shoes.
