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 know my moms hospital has issues with danskos because people roll their ankles easier than if they had traditional "flat" shoes.

    Personally, danskos are the only shoe I can wear for hours at a time and not be in terrible pain by the end of they day.

    I'm curious who has tried the dansko sneaker- did your size run the same as their clogs? Are they as comfy as the clogs?

    Oh you are totally correct, I would recommend that you follow the rules. Just venting!!!
    Yeah, I know the ones I ordered are called a clog, but I'm hoping the laces throw them off!

    I got them in today, so have only tried them around the house. They are a tiny bit lighter than the cabrio professional. So far they are very comfy, and the laces keep your foot from sliding around. I wear a 9 in normal shoes, but when i was fitted for cabrio professionals, they sized me at a 41, because of the room behind my heel/in front of the heel cup. I ordered these Veda in a 40, and they feel good. I like them so far, sturdy like other danskos. Hope i can get away with them at school/clinicals, if not another comfy pairs of shoes for running around!

    Why? That is absolutely ridiculous. Can I tell you how much a hated nursing school because of stuff like this? I'd go as far as getting a note from your doctor stating that you have to wear them if you're on your feet for more than 2 hours. Doctor's orders, bishes!

    What is the big deal about clogs? Nursing school has rules and so do hospitals when you find employment. You have to adapt or find another place. Some hospitals require certain colors so if you don't like the color will you get a doctors note? Lets be professional and not complain.

    That's my point -- it's NOT a big deal! It's a pair of SHOES! Let them wear whatever shoes they want to. And if we're talking professional, clogs are much neater/more professional looking than a pair of tennis shoes IMO. OP's clogs are comfortable and she's going to be on her feet for long periods of time. It has nothing to do with "style" so no, I don't think you should get a doctor's not because you don't like your hospital's scrub color. That's ridiculous and it doesn't even make sense. Let's be professional and think before you post.

    I am a professional and its not very professional to make such a comment. This shoe thing is ridiculous to even complain about. if the school doesn't permit a certain shoe get over it. There are plenty of professions that have requirements regarding clothing, colors, shoes etc so the choice becomes Either follow the rules or don't go to that school.

    Well that's your opinion. This website is where people go vent about things without judgment from others. You're name calling and referring to the OP's feelings as "ridiculous". What is your goal in doing that, btw? Talk about throwing the baby out with the bath water -- "follow the rules or don't go to that school" Really? This is what I don't like about online forums, people think they can just say whatever pops into their heads without any consideration for other people's feelings because they're safe behind their little computer screens.

    The problem with clogs (if they are backless) is that they are actually considered a workplace safety issue and in my area, aren't allowed per worksafe rules.
