Shoes for X-Ray Techs

X-ray tech footwear


scrub dansko 2

If you are working as a radiologic technologist or ultrasound tech, you spend long hours on your feet and on hard floors. Footwear is an important part of your life and we all know that if we skimp on quality in this area, we will end up with sore feet every day in the short run and serious foot, knee, and back problems in the long run. In addition, an X-ray tech’s shoes need to be spill, sharps, and slip resistant, and need to be easily cleanable on the outside. But that doesn’t mean they have to be ugly. Standard tennis or running shoes can be comfortable, but they don’t look professional. The soft pourus top makes them unsafe for dropped sharps or spilled fluids. Also, sneakers are hard to clean and shoe laces can come untied and get dragged across a contaminated hospital floor. But shoes are a personal trial and error thing. One person’s best shoe ever may not work for someone else. What are your favorite work shoes?

Crocs are the Classic unisex clog available in assorted colors. Some people swear by them and other’s don’t like them. Men’s and women’s Crocs mold to your foot and provide long lasting comfort for standing on your feet for long hours. Crocs are also ideal for medical professionals because they have swivel straps for great support when walking. Crocs have non-marking soles, and are antimicrobial and odor resistant. Some healthcare institutions don’t allow Crocs with holes in the top or sides since this is a spill and sharps hazard, and also some claim because they can cause a static electricity risk to equipment.

Dr. Martens

My personal favorite brand for years. I can stand all day in these. But some users may have difficult getting used to the squared off heel and tight grip. For a work shoe that pulls double duty as a weekend companion, you can’t go wrong with Dr. Martens. This is one shoe that can go from a meeting to a work site without missing a step. Slip into a little comfort and resist the foot blues of a hard day’s work. Durable, comfortable, and handsome enough for a night on the town, these stylish shoes are a versatile choice for work or play. The uppers are crafted from Industrial full-grain leather for superior durability and soft, supple comfort. With a low-cut or high top, slip-on design, these shoes will keep your feet happy. Inside you’ll find moisture-wicking lining designed to move perspiration and wetness away so your feet stay dry and happy. Soft padded footbeds and cushion and support your step for all-day comfort. To keep you grounded, Dr. Martens added slip and oil resistant PVC outsoles for reliable traction on a variety of terrains. The soles are soft to prevent shock. They are sold in UK sizes so check the sizing chart.
