Am I dreaming?

  1. Isn't there a pair of clogs that can be put in the autoclave? Or did I just dream this? I thought the birki professional clogs could...but their site doesn't say anything. Maybe I made that up Help!!

    why would you want to autoclave your shoes? I dont' work OR, so I don't have a clue, but I thought the booties were to cover your shoes.

    No,...you did not dream it. There are birks that can be autoclaved. Seen it in their catalog.

    Can't find my catalog at the moment but I did a search on the internet and came up with one site. I'm sure you could find more.

    Can't understand why anyone wishing to autoclave his/her shoes would wear CLOGS at all! I mean, how protective of your FEET are the stupid things? Why would you autoclave them and then leave your stocking feet expose to whatever you wanted to be rid of in the future? Maybe stupid to ask but I gotta know what the nursing/medical community's love of clogs is about! I do NOT get it. Would never wear em.

    Me, either- they don't stay on my feet very well, and I can't run in them!

    Hey! The whole reason I'm going into CSSD is so I can wear clogs and scrubs!

    I'm not sure what makes a clog a clog, but there are closed-back ones as well as the open back ones. I wouldn't wear open back ones either because I can't run in them, but my closed-back clogs are the best shoes I've ever had to support my feet and keep my back from hurting.
