Z-Coil shoes and UAH clinicals?

  1. I will be transfering from Calhoun CC to UAH this summer, so if I buy any new shoes they need to work for both schools. My mother has found these really awsome shoes Z-Coil's. They are really great for Plantar Faciitis, which I have. If anyone knows the requirements for shoes in the UAH uniform for clinicals and could let me know that would be awsome. These shoes are about $200 and I really don't want to have to buy a pair for Calhoun that will not work for UAH.

    Hi Nursetobe2! I am not sure if the z-coils will work or not. When I started clinicals in '07, the dress code was pretty strict on shoes - white shoes with absolutely no coloring (to the extent that we had to use white-out on any colored part of the shoe). Alot of people wore tennis shoes or nursing-specific shoes.
    Even if the Z-Coil's are all white, I am not sure if they would be approved since the heel/coil mechanism stands out. You could call the nursing student office and ask about them. Good luck!

    You can have the heel enclosed so the heel spring doesn't show. It's a bit extra money, but worth it, imho, if they work for you. It's a lot of money for a pair of shoes, but I've had mine for six years and only had to replace the heels, which you can do for under $100.

    I forgot about the heel enclosures! Thanks a ton!

    I have a co-worker that purchased a pair of z-coil shoes and she loves them! Do they feel that good?
