Do you wear white shoes to work as an RN?

White shoes were required in school and I keep replacing them with the same since I liked the fit. Does anyone still wear white shoes as a matter of habit or preference?

I'm still a nursing student who is required to have white shoes. I'm cheap so I'll probably keep using them until they wear out. Don't intend to get white shoes again when I have the choice.

I wore white shoes for years out of habit. I switched to different colors when I saw that almost everybody at work was wearing running shoes in every color BUT white.

I wear my white nurse mates shoes because they provide the arch support I need and are comfortable. Colour has nothing to do with my choice.

I wear white shoes because they are bleachable if I have some yucky stuff on my shoes , this makes my life easier.

I actually saw a really cute pair of white shoes recently that I contemplated buying. I like to alternate shoes every few shifts depending on which scrubs I wear so I don't mind having some variety.

I just wear whatever sneakers match the scrubs I am wearing that day. Gotta keep everything coordinated.

Been rocking Dansko's for over a year now, one pair is multi-colored in a snakeskin pattern, the other pair is an antique bronze, never going back to sneakers, though I still have a pair of Fubu sneaks that are hot pink and black patent leather that I wear every now and then. No more white shoes for this old girl í ½í¸‚
