    One hospital required that cloggs had either a heel strap or a high lip on the back.

    Personally I wear clogs with a heel strap (not required where I work) It insure the shoe stays on my foot and clogs are cool. You have great air circulation and your feet do not get hot and the sweat can actually evaporate (better for my feet and better for the life of my shoe)

    The guys in our ER do wear clogs - at least some of them anyway. Will look into clogs - had been thinking about it for awhile and really appreciate everyone's input. thanks...judi

    Guys DO wear clogs. A couple male doctors who did our OB deliveries wore em all the time. ICK! all that blood and fluid on the socks. No way would shoe protectors help...i cannot fathom wanting to wear clogs in OB. Really, it's so odd to me.

    I agree with whats been said....safety in keeping your feet completely covered. I tried to wear them too, but they kept slidding off or made me loose my balance. The friction (when trying to walk fast, since you dare not run in them!) also gave me horrible calouses.

    I wear the white and blue slip - on" Skechers"--they are sooooo comfy-- they come up really high in the front, and i don't have any trouble---i mean , everybody has been wearing clogs and those crazy rubber looking clogs ffooorreeevveeeeerrrrrr in the hospital here---- go figure!!!!! I did know a nurse that sued and made a fortune, though, when she sued the hospital for someone running into the back of her Achilles with the cross-part bottom part of an IV pole during a code and it severed her achilles----now she can ONLY wear clogs!~Kinda ironic, seeein that now she has no heel protection at all!!!!!
