Okay, where do you find those cool shoes...

  1. ..you know, the ones that are supposed to be so great for your feet? They kinda look like clogs, but they have a back? Back when I was waiting tables some of the servers wore them, said nurses wear them a lot, but at the time I didn't want to shell out the $$ to buy shoes for a job that I didn't intend to continue with.

    Anyone know what I'm talking about?

    Well, no, I'm not thinking of Birks. They're more like clogs. Hard to exlain. But thanks anyway!

    Oh man, I thought you meant my stylish Kmarts sneaks :roll

    The ones you're describing sound nice, surely someone will know!

    Dansko clogs! They run about $104 and come with or without backs. I have 2 pairs for work and 1 pair for casual wear, they are awesome! I work 12 hour shifts in the ER and my feet rarely hurt. www.dansko.com

    Ooh, I love these! It doesn't look like they come in white. Anyone know if they do and it's just not showing on the website?

    Found em! Thanks so much, I am really thankful you posted this tonight. I have to buy shoes before Nov 21 and these are just what I had in mind. Gotta do what I can to keep the vericose veins away, lol!

    I love your avatar....

    I also liked this link. They don't have the professional style in white, but they have the other two.

    That is a LOT of money for shoes!! I bought my Reebok's at the factory outlet and they are fine for now, but it is nice to have this info for when I am out of school.

    RNwannabeJEN - glad you found them! Good luck in school!

    Val - I got the Talia style (in professional section) in white. They're kind of a Mary Jane type. Funky and comfy!

    Val - thanks, I love my Avatar too. It suits me....although yours does too. I'm sure we all feel that way a great deal of the time on this crazy path we've chosen!
