In The Know

Featured In: Women’s Health Magazine

May 15, 2017

Nurse Mates, and more specifically the ALIGN collection, was recently featured in the May 2017 issue of Women’s Health Magazine! Earlier in the year, our brand spokesperson and podiatrist Dr. Dorothy Kurtz Phelan had the opportunity to meet with two editors from the magazine to discuss the technology and health benefits of the collection. With the built-in orthotic to help assist with proper foot positioning, combined with on-trend styling, they both concluded that the Align collection would appeal to healthcare professionals and non-healthcare professionals alike. But don’t take their word for it! Three women were each asked to wear a pair of Align for a one month period and catalog their experience. Their thoughts?
Read what each of them had to say below:


1/ Gabrielle PorcaroWomen’s Health Senior Fashion and Market Editor
“At first, it was hard for me to get past the fact that they’re nurse shoes. But all-white, low-platform sneakers are hot now, and I got tons of compliments on the FENTON style. I’ll wear them on long photo-shoot days with jeans or dresses.”


2/ Kaitlin DeFalco, R.D.Registered Nurse at New York Presbyterian Hospital
“I’ve worn the FAXON style for six shifts, and I felt much more comfortable after being on my feet for 12 hours. I love that they’re slip-ons, yet my feet felt fully secure. They were definitely the talk of the unit!”


3/ Cathryne Keller / Walking Commuter in New York City
“They felt a bit stiff at first, but after two days they molded to my feet and softened up a bit. Usually my feet throb after running around the city all day in my regular sneaks, booties, or flats, but I noticed significantly less aching with the FLEET style – plus the heart on the sides is so cute!”
