    So I'm not a guy, but I hated wearing white during nursing school. In the real world, I wear black 95% of the time. So I feel your pain.

    Anyways, shoe wise, your school will be fairly specific. Probably require white, all leather. No clogs... you are very limited.

    How do you feel about converse shoes? You'd need to make sure they are okay with your school, but these are okay : http://m.zappos.com/converse-chuck-t...ite-monochrome

    And congrats on starting nursing school!

    Usually clinical sites specify what shoes are acceptable. Any place I have ever been they require white shoes. i work with male nurses and they wear white shoes.

    thanks, i can't wait! i'd definitely rock a pair of connies. i didn't realize they may have to be leather, so i guess i'll just wait to see what they want at orientation so i don't have to double buy.

    I agree with puravidaLV. Just make sure they don't have holes in the toes. That's a pretty standard for all nursing shoes.

    My school was pretty specific about the uniform and shoes in our student handbook (our hair bands were supposed to match the school colors. Come on!) but in reality, no one every really checked. I wore K-Swiss walking shoes that were white with a blue logo and New Balance shoes that were white and grey, and no one every said anything to me about them being all white.

    Also, whatever you decide to buy- don't spend too much. I guarantee you'll buy new shoes before you start your actual nursing job.

    As a Nurse and especially as a student you are going to be on your feet alot! buy comfortable shoes, mine are leather and have an air cushion for comfort, i got them on sale too. Buy something classy that you can wear outside of school eg when you go to the clubs/ on dates.
