We asked four Marie Curie Nurses to model our new workwear shoes.
Deciding to give this hard-working team from the Marie Curie Hospice in Liverpool a real treat, we asked them to test out our new comfortable work shoes – and then treated them to an amazing makeover.
We asked Nurses Sarah, Daly, Margaret and Hilary how important comfortable and supportive shoes are in their work. Overall, quite simply, the answer was: very.
“Sometimes you can be on your feet for hours so it is vital that the shoes are comfortable,” says Hilary.
“Supportive shoes make all our lives easier as we are never off our feet. Supportive shoes help our spine and shoulders,” says Margaret.
“I spend a lot of time up and about in my job as a research nurse,” says Sarah. From seeing patients day-to-day to talking with staff and meeting healthcare professionals outside of the hospice, “good shoes are essential to all of this so I don’t have to worry about sore feet!”
Daly, a Registered Nurse of 9 years, told us that feeling comfortable enables her to do her job without any discomfort or stress and feel relaxed.

These lovely ladies trialed our work shoes with 360° comfort and had the best time at their photoshoot and makeover in June. Ladies, it was a pleasure! You and all staff at Marie Curie deserve the world and more – so thank you, from all of us at Hotter.

“I love everything I do, particularly spending time with patients,” says Research Nurse Sarah. The Nightingale shoes she tried “felt really, really comfy and looked good with my uniform. Spending a day in these wouldn’t be a problem!”
Registered Nurse, 9 years
Registered Nurse Daly is devoted to caring for people with terminal illness and supporting their loved ones. She found her working shoes “really comfortable from the first wear, onwards and throughout.”

“I see so much love every day in the hospice,” says Margaret, Health Care Assistant at Liverpool Hospice. On a 12.5-hour shift, “comfort is the most important thing. We need comfortable footwear to walk up and down the wards.”
HCA Manchester, 16 months
Hilary loves her job because she knows her patients’ families can rest for a few hours. She says “I’m reassured that their loved ones are being well cared for. Of the Nightingale shoes she says: “My feet do not ache at all at the end of the shift.”
Whether you’re on your feet all day or need supportive, comfortable work shoes, you deserve the ultimate comfort.
As Margaret said:
Feet are the most important thing in life. They take you to good places.
And, Margaret, we couldn’t have put it better ourselves.
For each pair of work shoes we sell between 6th September and 4th October 2021, we’ll be paying £5 to Marie Curie – and that’s for every colour of Nightingale, Barton or Exton.
So, buy these shoes for work or every day and know that with each step you’ve helped towards a great cause.
