I love my new balance shoes. Sadly, I can't wear them because they don't agree with our school clinical dress code. We have to wear 100% white shoes at clinicals. I have a pair of clunky white nike tennis shoes for clinicals that are huge and give me at least an extra foot in height.

Invest in some nice add-in shoe soles!!!

Good day:

While I'm not yet in clinicals, I got a pair of Dansko's almost a year ago; one of the better buys I made (it was at a store in our area vs. online). Granted, come clinicals I will not be able to wear that pair as first year clinicals dress code requires all white and my Danskos are black.

Thank you.

This is a very good question. I am looking for a pair of shoes also. My school dress code states that it must be white.

Depends on your budget, your feet, and what white shoes constitutes to your school. I had a pair of fairly inexpensive Landau clogs that got me through clinicals. If I had to wear them longer than one ten-twelve hour shift per week, my feet would be screaming at me. I just purchased a pair of Alegria (on sale on Amazon, baby....though each size is a different price through the vendor) for $85 and they are heaven to my Morton's toe, high arch, narrow heeled feet.

I love my Danskos as well. Mine are black, but they come in white and an array of prints/colors. Sanitas have a similar fit and more color selection. They come in white, but I didn't want to pay $125 for a pair of white shoes I'd likely not wear again after school. I'm a crazy print girl.

I'm Excited to try a pair of timberland Renova, as I've heard great things. My order was cancelled last time so I'm waiting to order again when I have some extra cash.

If your white can have a non-white logo, I'd suggest Nikes, as they have a wide range of shapes and styles.

I ended up with a pair of NurseMates Dove shoes, and they've served me well so far...especially when paired with compression socks. I went to a scrub shop and tried on every pair of all white shoes they had, and for the money, I felt like the shoes I got were my best buy.

With that said, I loved the way both the Danskos and Alegrias felt on my feet, I just didn't really have the money. I may treat myself to one or the other when I graduate or get my first job, though.

Love my dansko but you have to wear them at home everyday to break them in.

Good day:

Am I correct in understanding the OP wants recommendations for shoes for men?

Thank you.
