If this is really true, I know a LOT of health care professionals who spend a lot of time on their feet who are gonna be sad puppies. They might be fugly, but they're apparently the most comfortable thing ever for that sort of thing.

That's just plain daft! What's next, no satin undies 'cos they might produce static as you walk?
