    I like Crocs. You can get them at http://www.uniformhaven.com and click on the Crocs link at the top. If you haven't tried any yet you really need to. I love mine!
    only problem with crocs is the holes in the top of the shoe. you can get blood, crap needles ect dropped on yourfeet and ur not protected. our hosp. is not going to allow them anymore. i like nike shoks.

    crocs have the holes in the top of them so you have to be careful of body fluid spills or needles. my hospital actually is not going to allow them anymore

    I worried about the holes too so I just got a black pair with no holes. Granted my feet sweat but they sweat in New Balance, Avias, KSwiss...basically anything other than flip flops! I alternate between Crocs for work and New Balance for school.

    They make "Professional" Crocs that don't have holes in the top.

    I have a very bad knee and plantar fascitis. I have spent hundreds of dollars trying different shoes. Had the best luck with Nike air max 360. They cost 175 and I'm glad I spent it.
    Also look at Z-Coil shoes on the internet, very expensive, very weird looking but very wonderful. It also helps to change your shoes half way through your shift, but I haven't had to do that with the max 360s. A comfortable pair of shoes is worth it's weight in gold.

    Crocs!!! These are the best shoes. I have spent so much money trying to find shoes the wouldn't kill my feet. I work 12 hour shifts and most shoes were fine for about the first 8 hours then just kill my feet. Crocs are cheap in comparision to most shoes, and are very comfy. Airwalk have a shoe that is also very similar to Crocs that are also very comfy. Airwalk come in tie-dyed colors too

    Z-coils. They are expensive, but aren't your feet worth it?

    day shifts i wear saucony with my orthotics. nights i wear crocs. we aren't supposed to wear them because of wcb (compo) regulations. not because of the holes in the top (i have them with and without), but because there is no heel, only a strap. so no clogs, or slingback shoes are supposed to be worn.

    I'm going to be starting Nursing school this fall and I have to have an all white pair of shoes - no clogs.

    Has anyone tried Birkenstock nursing shoes???

    our hospital has banned all shoes with holes in the top because they have decided they are against the infection control policy. I love my crocs and hated to see them go, they are truly the one shoe I have worn that has not caused my back to hurt

    I have worn Birks and Merrells and actually love them both--I do think my Merrells are more comfortable though! I haven't tried New Balance but a couple of my co-workers swear by them.
