What are the most comfortable nursing shoes... for big foot?

  1. 0 I need all white, preferably leather, closed toe, closed heel, with no mesh shoes for my nursing school clinical.

    I wear a size 12 in womens. I tried a pair of Dansko and they just did not work for me.

    Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!

    I have the KLOGs brand. They are very comfortable!

    I switched to CROCS a few years ago. They are not leather, but are inexpensive and come in unisex sizes. They have a "professional" line and I buy the non-holey ones that wipe off easily. They do come in a variety of colors. I personally don't like the massaging insole so I cover it by using an inexpensive double thickness dr scholl insole that I change out every few months. I have flat feet so I have a hard time finding shoes that won't hurt my feet after a few hours.

    I've tried everything, dansko, klogs, NB, avia, nursemates, the list goes on and on. Hands down, the MOST amazing comfortable shoe is this...Women's Classic Leather || Cushioned Walking Shoe @ Spira Footwear

    Looks like it only goes up to 11 in women's, but I'm sure you could get it bigger in mens, they are essentially the same shoe men or women's.

    I have keds. It takes some searching to find the one's that don't have mesh, because they have a lot of styles. But mine are all leather, no holes/mesh. Keds only goes up to size 11 in women's, but a size 12 for women's is equal to a size 10 in men's (this conversion is an approximation for all shoe types).

    Moved to Nursing Scrubs / Uniforms / Gear for more response.

    You might want to read through some of the other "shoe threads" in this forum for other suggestions.

    I just bought a pair of Timberland PRO Renovo . They are very comfortable. I bought a half size smaller than usual and they are perfect. Amazon has the best prices.
    This link is just an example of one of their styles...i bought this one and I love it.

    I would prefer for you to choose foot solutions Shoes. Their women brands' shoes are available in 1/2 sizes and come in variable widths. They carry shoes with different shaped molds to fit almost any foot type, even make a custom shoe to fit your needs.

    You may also consult with Foot Specialists for your any Foot and Heel pain problem. They can evaluate your feet, answer your questions and recommend shoes that will help solve any problems and keep your feet healthy and comfortable for years to come.

    I got some shoes from Kmart,They come in wide and they are SUPER comfy and they never seem to get dirty.I cant recall their name,but I checked the online reviews before i bought them...they are the ones on the website with the good reviews and they cost around $22..or $19 when they go on sale.Best shoes ever!..my advice is to try them on in person or buy a 1/2 size down.

    I wanted to thank everyone so much for their help and input! It was GREATLY appreciated!

    And just in case there are any other big feet out there.... I ended up going with Landau Comfort White Women's Footwearx Clog. They were around $40 with shipping and came in a WOMEN'S SIZE 12.

    I love my danskos to death... the key is to UPSIZE. I wear a size 10 women's and my danskos are a size 42. I'm not sure if they go any bigger than that, so you may need men's danskos. They should feel very loose to the point of feeling too big at first.. You will get used to it and it is like heaven! Hope this helps... I know there are some people who just don't like them, but a good fit can make all the difference.
