Good, cheap nursing shoes

  1. 0 I am starting my clinical in Sept. and we are required to buy "white nursing shoes." Anyone know of any sites where I can find some good, cheap and maybe even halfway decent looking ones. Does anyone know if student nurses are allowed to wear white Croc-style shoes?

    Thanks!

    You will have to look to your program to see if they allow croc-style shoes. My school does but some don't. Try looking on Amazon, sometimes they have good deals and use Amazon Prime for free shipping My friend got white croc-style shoes at Payless for under $20. You don't have to spend a lot on shoes. I bought a $20 pair that's gonna last me the whole program. Will probably get decent one's when I grad, but this pair is comfortable even after 12 hours on the floor.

    I'm not sure about shoes, I'm still looking but I would double check with the croc shoes because we are unable to wear them for my Nursing School.

    My school specified white leather, non-clog type shoes. Your school may be different, so check your dress code. I used Zappos.com for buying shoes, they have a huge selection, cheap next day shipping, and their customer service is unmatched.

    Ditto the check with your school sentiment. Mine is very picky- no clogs (wahhhh...want my Danskos!) no sneakers, all white shoes are required. I'm still looking for a decent pair. I totally understand not wanting to spend a ton of money- once my clinicals have ended, I want to be able to buy a pair of shoes I WANT, not the type my school forces on me. I know my employer isn't too picky (I've worked at the same hospital for ten years) so I will be able to get my Danskos then. Just wish now I hadn't gotten rid of my last pair of Nursemates- they would have been perfect, but I hadn't worn them in years, so I donated them.

    I just graduated and we had the strict all white professional shoe as well. I agree with Hospice RN... don't buy cheap shoes you will regret it. I went to payless and bought shoes for $24 because I couldn't afford danskos or nurse mates... worst mistake ever. My back has never been so sore, even after a 6 hour shift. (My feet are not high arched I have never had back problems). Its worth the extra money. I personally just purchased NurseMates because although you can get danskos for almost the same price (this is only sometimes and you have to look around) I don't have the patience to break in a set of shoes and the soles of the nurse mates were really cushy.... and I have weak ankles... the danskos felt like I would fall out of them..

    Good luck in your search

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I have bad feet (pronation) so I decided I should get a good pair. I got a pair of NurseMates for $46.

    I bought the Landau comfort shoes, non skid. They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. 40 dollars

    there are good shoes and there are cheap shoes. i'd invest in the good ones -- your feet, knees and back will thank you. i swear by danskos, and if you get them at the outlet they're 1/3 off.

    Take a look at www.trinitymedicalwear.com. They have a great line of shoes and are very reasonable. All orders ship within 24 hours. You will get an e-mail confirmation. They have a great rewards program. For every $100 spent on their site you get $10 back. Also, if you use the promo code FIRST you will get 10% off your first order. All products listed on their site are in stock. They will not let you order any products not in stock.

    I have Even A Better shoe for you....they now are copies of the shape-ups and I found some at Target! Only $30 and they are Wonderful!!! I had tried the Shape-ups on and these feel just as good and I love the feel when I walk --- I work 12 hour nights and wear them all the time now. Plus they are So Darn Cute!!!
