    I'm a Birkenstock clogger myself. They are well worth the extra money because they last longer. I have a pair of dress white leather that I save for certain occassions and the white man made ones with refill soles on the inside for the everyday stuff.

    My hubby took me to a spa for my xmas present. I was told by a massage person that I had nice feet. That's because I have refused for the last 21 years to jam my feet into ridiculously priced, uncomfortable shoes and walk for 9- 13 hours on a cement floor.

    I love my clogs and have never been told NOT to wear them anywhere I worked. Yeah clogs!!!!

    My feet have become so used to the comfort of the Crocs at work, that I can't stand to wear anything else, and wear them for everyday! Now, if they'd just come up with a dressy model.
    Have you seen the ballet flat style? They are brand new and just dressy enough to get away with wearing them with nice pants. To heck with heels!:spin:

    You can have my crocs when you pry them off my cold, dead feet! I have never had shoes so awesome as my crocs. I have the kind without holes. My feet never hurt! I will never give them up. I have paid over $100 for nursing shoes that killed my feet after a few hours and I constantly turned my ankles in. Crocs rule!!!!! Sometimes my patients will ask me about my crocs and I always sing their praises. I tell them that I have crocs in almost every color and I wear them off work too. I always recommend they get themselves a pair. But lately the nursing supervisor has been telling me that crocs aren't in dress code (as she has hers on too, we work night shift). We both agree we aren't giving them up no matter what. :roll

    I'd be willing to bet those were the Dansko Professionals? I had to return mine - wore them for less than half a shift and fell three times, all because my ankles turned in. The soles on those things are weird.

    Crocs sells something called "Croc Butter" that you can buff your shoes with - makes them nice and shiny!
    Armor All spray or convenient wipes - presto!

    I wanted to try them but I was a bit leery about the whole running back to the OR for a stat C/S in a shoe that my foot wasn't stabilized in (like in a running shoe).

    I LOVE my Crocs!!! I wear the "professional" ones (with no holes on top) to work, and the regular ones everywhere else. I knew there was a reason they are so popular, they ROCK!

    All of this talk about how great crocs are has got me interested in purchasing a pair, since my feet have been starting to hurt me recently. (I've been doing 16-hour shifts a couple times a week lately.) So I would like to know: where are some good places to buy a pair? I wear a size 11, which some consider a "large" size for women, and I have to try shoes on before I buy, so online purchases won't work. There are Payless, Kmart, and Walmart stores around this area, but do other stores, such as Foot Locker, sell them? Thanks!:spin:

    Many department stores (like Nordstrom) sell them, as well as stores in the malls where walking or trendy shoes are sold.

    I don't think anyone was criticizing the crocs with no holes in them, it's the ones that do have holes... the hospital that I work has said that, no one even people who are not around bodily fluid or sharps (such as secretarys who wear scrub) are not allowed to wear them

    If you're interested in the authentic Crocs, this is how I found mine:
    http://www.crocs.com/shop/find_crocs/find_crocs.jsp

    Input your zip code and it comes up with a ton of suggestions....I went to a Crocs booth in the local mall....I called to be sure the location I was interested in had the ones with no holes before I drove there (gas it outrageous enough!) and they were very helpful. Some places carry very limited styles.

    I am a consistent, solid size 9.5 and ended up going to a size 10 and buying the adjustable strap as I like something to be snug on my foot!

    Good luck!
