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?
