Shoes for Clinical Rotation


Hey guys and gals,

Please don't flame me as I'm sure this has been asked hundreds of times on multiple forums, but I need your advice on shoes - yes, shoes.

My program at Broward College requires all-white, no brands, non-porous shoes. There should be no holes in which fluids can enter. I have quite a hard time finding good quality nursing shoes for men at uniform stores (limited selection ?). I'm not crazy about a $10 Walmart sneaker as they tend to hurt my feet in the long run.

Appreciate any and all advice. What would you do in my position?

I ended up purchasing a pair of Skechers shoes for my cinical rotation. Bought them off amazon for around $30 (I don't know what they cost now). Don't get me wrong, they are horrendous looking, but I didn't want to spend $60/$70 on shoes I wouldn't wear other than for my nursing program clinicals. They are called "Skechers for Work Men's Felton Slip Resistant Relaxed-Fit Work Shoe" and do have the logo, but it kind of blends in. Also, they weren't comfortable until they were broken in. But they covered my school's requirements and work for my clinical days.
