Nike has created a pair of shoes specifically for nurses, doctors and other health workers
Christmas present for the nurse or doctor in your life?
Nike has created a pair of runners just for medical workers.
Called the Nike Air Zoom Pulse, the shoe is for nurses, doctors, home health providers and others who on their feet all day caring for others.
Although, to be clear, anyone can buy and wear these.
The new line was crafted with the help and insight of workers at the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon.
"During the sessions, the designers of the Air Zoom Pulse learned the rigors of these health-care workers’ day-to-day efforts," Nike said in a statement.
"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 Nike Air Zoom Pulse is set to drop on 7 December on Nike.com and all profits will be donated to the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
Some of the designs can be seen below.
