Perform the following stretch at least three times a day:

Stand with your toes on a step and your heels off the edge.

Slowly lower your heels down and hold for 10 seconds before lifting your heels to the starting position.

Repeat 5 to 10 times. Don't force your heel farther than it wants to go. If the movement is too much for both feet at once, do one foot at a time.


Wear the right size shoe

Help your lower back, knees and ankles by wearing the right size shoe. How do you know the shoes you’re wearing are the right size? Make sure you measure your feet every 2 years.

There should be about half an inch of wiggle room between your longest toe and the shoe.

When you find the right shoe two pairs are a must, so they can be rotated between shifts. Because nurse’s shoes get so much wear and tear, they’ll need replacing every 3-6 months.


Put your feet up and soak them

Elevate your feet for 15-20 minutes.

Soak your feet in warm water with epsom salts, or a warm, wet towel, and wrap it around your feet and legs.


Hydrate and get the right nutrients

Be sure to drink plenty of fluids.  Being dehydrated can cause your feet to cramp in addition to the pain associated with long hours of standing. Cramping can also be caused by a lack of potassium, so eat foods like bananas or spinach.


Wear compression socks

Earlier we mentioned the importance of wearing the right shoes. This seems obvious but what’s often overlooked and just as important is using the right socks. Leg fatigue, aka that "heavy legs feeling," can be alleviated by compression socks which help move the blood from your feet to your legs, and back to your heart.

Do long shifts lead to painful, achy, and swollen feet? Brian Park, RN was an ICU nurse in Washington that was way too familiar with that feeling and was determined to find a solution.

Then one night during a long shift he thought of creating Nabee Socks, the world’s best compression sock with stylish designs.

Nabee socks are engineered for nurses by nurses. Not only do they help ease pain after long shifts, they’re soft and long lasting as well.

Great sock

Love the colors. my legs have never felt better. I ordered a small and I’m a 6.5/7 shoe size

Too tight at the top!

I measured and ordered two pairs of large Nabees according to the size chart. They are waaay too tight at the top and by the end of the day leave a painful indentation. Ouch. Wish I had ordered extra large.

Hi Babs, I'm so sorry that the larges didn't fit. Please contact us via email and we will exchange them for a XL pair at no cost to you.

Finally a compression sock that works!

I've tried so many different brands and none worked. They were so tight and so hard to put on, I had to take them off. The size I ordered from Nabee was according to the chart, but the upper part of my calfs are larger due to my knees getting swollen from my arthritis. I sent Nabee an email explaining this and they sent me the next size up without question! Great customer service. I am wearing the larger size now and they feel wonderful. Thanks Nabee!

Knock your socks off

Pain free legs after a 12+ hour day love them soooo much

Love these socks!

The the extra padding in the foot makes these socks the best to wear on long days. The pattern is adorable and they’re easy to get on!

Great socks!

Socks? These socks feel like new skin! The socks provide the right amount of compression and they look good too! They were clearly made with a high end material!

Beautiful colors and comfortable on feet

The foot part of socks is very comfortable. The colors are perfect. However, I wish my calves were thinner so the socks would not be so smug. Thanks!

Comfy legs & feet

I love these socks. My legs still have energy after a long day at work. They also still keep its shape after the wash

Sock review

Thank you for asking this question. I really liked the black and white striped and the black striped socks. I also like the black ones with the colored hearts. The pink and green ones and the green and blue ones were too tight around my feet due to the material being so thick. They all fit good around the ankles and knees.
Thank you

Snug fit

Purchased these socks back in 2017, they are still holding up very well along with my other pairs. Air drying seems to help with keeping them intact. I’m on my feet for 12+ hrs. I started to developed some varicose veins but these socks reduced and kept them from getting worse. No tires legs or swollen ankles during shifts. Extremely please with my socks. I do wear them around the house if I have to be up my feet for long.

These socks feel good & look great!

I rdcently had knee replacement surgery and purchased these to support reducing swelling. They are working well, fit well and are quite comfortable.

Feels Like Heaven, even after a 13 hour shift!!

I’ve worn compression socks in the past but they have never given me the support & comfort my new Nabee socks gave me immediately!

Cushioned heal, fantastic support and DID NOT pinch or leave painful impressions below my knees!

Will be ordering again!

The best!!!!

I have been a RN for 8 years on my feet all day for hours and these are by far the best socks I have ever owned !! I will be buying these for life ! Thank you Nabee!!


My daughter recommended these as we both have the same issues and opinions with most compression socks. I also suffer from neuropathy in both feet so compression socks I've tried all feel like 40 grit sandpaper after only a couple hours. The Nabee socks are nothing short of amazing. They're like having cloud slippers on even after wearing them all day. Service is amazing as well as they respond far quicker than I expected. I would like to see more masculine options apart from solid black/white as even the "gender neutral" color options lean more feminine. Argyle anyone?

Awesome socks!

These socks are so comfortable and fun! I can’t wait to buy more.

Legs feel great all day!

I bought this to wear in clinic. I am a dental hygiene instructor and am on my feet for several hours at a time. These socks are a game changer. I have no leg or feet fatigue or soreness. They are wonderful!


I'm a PCU night nurse so running around all night had my feet killing me after 12-13 hours. These make my feet feel amazing! They are the only socks I wear to work now, I'm definitely ordering more fun colors!

My favorites by far!!

I have awful neuropathy in my feet and have tried several other brands of compression socks and Nabees are by far my favorite. They are much easier for my family to help me get on and hardly ever settle into wrinkles. They stay smooth and comforting unlike most other brands. The designs are cute and make me happy.

Wonderful socks

Feet feel great, legs don't hurt after 12 to 13 hour shifts on hospital floors. Love them very much.

I love my socks from Nabee. I have compression socks from another company that makes really good socks, but they are so difficult to to get over my heels with the 20-30 compression. Nabee's are easier. And they are really stylish with fun colors and designs. I will definitely purchase more.

Works great!

This is my first time using compression socks but my auto immune disease has been causing lots of pain and swelling in my feet and ankles and these are amazing! Hands down I wish I got them sooner. Will definitely get a few more pairs.


I won a pair at work thru a raffle. After my first shift of wearing them, I went on website & ordered more!! Love them!!
