I was recently accepted into a nursing program and found out that we cannot wear clogs. I am so upset because I love my Danskos. They are well broken-in, and have proven to be great when having to mostly stand for 10+ hr shifts. ... Read More

    I wear New Balance walking shoes.
    Exactly what I use. I need a wide width in a shoe, and New Balance is one of the few athletic shoe manufacturers who produce shoes in wide widths. I have never been disappointed.

    No danskos, that sucks. I liked shaped up sketchers. They would be my first choice if I wasn't allowed to wear my danskos.

    I need a wide width as well. I once made the mistake of thinking I would try a different shoe.Bad idea.

    Chances are if your program won't allow clogs, they won't allow running type sneakers.

    we werent allowed to wear danskos in my clinicals either. I just had some cheapie white sneaks, and since clinicals weren't every day, it was no prob. to wear them.

    My school doesn't allow clogs, but they mean open-back. Most of us wear a clog style shoe with backs.

    We can wear sneakers, just not clogs. I will check out the. New Balance sneakers. Aren't Alegrias clogs too?

    In my nursing program, we are not allowed to wear clogs with open backs. Our shoes must also be white. When in doubt, email the person in charge of clinicals. I am in my second semester and learned that having the right shoes is the difference between being tired after clinicals(right shoes) or just plain exhausted(wrong shoes). Personally, I would not wear sneakers but try to wear shoes that do not have mesh/cloth on them. Kinda gross to think about bodily fluids going through the shoe onto your feet!

    That is exactly why I want to avoid the mesh! I have seen Keen's PTC Utility Oxfords, they are leather, no mesh, but have laces. What do you wear?
