What kind of shoes?

Students General Students


What kind of shoes would you recommend for nursing school - or nursing in general. The only requirement by my school is that they have to be all white. What brands do you like? What brands don't you like? What should I get??

i would look for shoes with support, comfort, as well as how they look. at present, i find the support and comfort in drscholl's shoes.

dansko clogs, hands down. About $100 but well worth the money in my opinion.

I'm planning on getting some Birkenstocks. I'll need them just in time for my birthday in August....

I bought a pair of plain white K-Swiss. I hope they get the job done for me. Good luck!

Quarks clogs work great for me. Liked them so much I got a pair in black for everyday wear!

I have gone from Birkenstocks to Danskos, and now to New Balance. I LOVE my New Balance 810!

I got a pair of Danskos for Christmas. I haven't been able to actually USE them yet...don't go back to clinicals til the 22nd. I don't know about the rest of you, but for me they ran a little small. I am a (large) size 10...but had to get my Danskos in a size 42 (supposedly equivalent to a size 12!!!:eek: :imbar )
