I am over weight and 58 years old. I have Diabetic Neuropathy and can not stand to have shoes tight across my toes. I was reduced to crocks... But lately I am having trouble with them staying on my feet. The Gales are shoes and the toe box is loose enough to limit pain. And with heel spurs... The spring in each step is so comfortable. I just ordered a second pair. THANK YOU GALES.
I have ''On- cloud'', ''Cloves'' and ''Asics'', and my gales are by far my most favorite so far. They have vents, so my feet do not feel sweaty, yet they are splash/fluid proof (C-Diff proof!!). These shoes are the most lightweight feeling, that put a spring in my step when walking. I highly recommend these for any healthcare professional, or service personal that will need a great new pair of non-skid shoes.
As a surgical resident, I get so much use out of these shoes. I was a little skeptical as they did squeak when I first put them on, but the squeaking has stopped and they are very comfortable for long shifts on my feet. I get so many compliments on these shoes and nurses/doctors asking where I got them. They also protect my feet and wipe clean really easily so I’m not afraid when I get blood/fluids on them. Have become my favorite shoes. Highly recommend!
2nd night in a row of wearing my Gales. Best purchase ever!! #1 reason is that my plantar fasciitis and knees didn't act up at all! (Wasn't walking like an old woman at work and actually able to get out of bed with no aches and pain) No break in period needed (brought other shoes just in case), shoes were very cushiony and true to fit.
I got my Gales for nursing school, and let me tell you, my feet feel like they are on cloud nine! These shoes are light, plush, easily wipeable, and a necessity for nursing students and nurses alike! Go grab your pair now!
All Day Comfort
Working long shifts is hard enough, so Gales developed insoles to create long term cushioning, arch support, high breathability and moisture management that outlasts any nursing shoe on the market. We paired this with patented XL Extralight® technology to create a shoe 3x lighter than comparable footwear, which combined, feels like walking on a cloud.
The treads on our nursing shoes were extensively tested to ensure the safety of the healthcare professionals who wear them, on both wet and dry surfaces.
Gales shoes wipe clean in seconds, from head to toe, with full moisture and microbe barrier protection. They feature two holes on the side that allow air to flow in, but not fluids, ensuring breathable and waterproof shoes are no longer mutually exclusive.
Gales are the only footwear with 100% antimicrobial protection. Both our insoles and our outsoles feature patented antimicrobial technology that continually resists microbe growth and provides built-in protection from fungus, bacteria and odor.
