Per Nike, the “Nike Air Zoom Pulse is a shoe for everyday heroes: nurses, doctors, home health providers, technologists, technicians, EMTs, frontline staff, first responders, and others who work tirelessly to support patients.” It is especially even more important given the tireless hours spent on the frontlines right now.

“During the sessions, the designers of the Air Zoom Pulse learned the rigors of these health-care workers’ day-to-day efforts. Nurses, for example, walk approximately four to five miles and sit for less than an hour during the course of a 12-hour shift. The work is physically and mentally demanding. The design for the Air Zoom Pulse tackles those challenges with simplicity in mind. The shoe is easy to get on and off, and equally simple to clean. The fit, cushioning and traction systems work together to secure the foot in all hospital conditions.”
“The design confronts a range of medical-worker-specific challenges. How can a shoe be both comfortable for long stretches of standing and versatile enough to support the hurried movements required in emergency situations? The answer comes through the Pulse’s full-rubber outsole, a flexible drop-in midsole with Zoom Air heel unit and a heel fit so secure, it feels like a soft, snug hug.”
Works for spills and bodily fluids such as blood, urine, and other fluids we want to get off of shoes after a long shift! “And, of course, the shoe is also fabricated for the unforeseen peculiarities of life in the hospital. The coated toe box protects against any type of spill. Smooth surfaces present a unique challenge when designing for spills as well, and the shoe’s traction pattern solves for this by removing closed cells.” Visit Nike’s Website on the Pulse to learn more. 20% off Nike products for healthcare workers can be found here.
