Experience Unmatched Comfort:

Unveiling the Perfect Shoes for Nurses

Elevate Your Long Shifts with Our Collection of Top-tier, Ultra-Comfy Nurse Shoes

Gales aren't your average nursing shoes

Nursing is physically demanding. Nurses walk 4-5 miles/day. Common issues that come along with not wearing quality footwear are:

  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Heel spurs
  • Inflammation

Gales was founded to give back to the healthcare community through innovation with Smart PPE Footwear™ technology, offering the highest level of affordability, safety, cleanability, comfort and style in its class.

Common footwear worn in medical facilities puts our frontline nurses at risk, leaving 59 million providers exposed to infectious fluids and disease, so we led the charge to be the first to complete the bio-safe uniform.

My favorite part is the cushy material!

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.

Walking on clouds

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.

Love these 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!

Definitely will be getting another pair!!

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!
