Hi there, I will be starting my Cert IV in nursing from 12th July. I wonder which nursing shoes to buy..

I assume nursing shoes must be comfortable, anti-static, shock absorbing protection, stain resistant (easy to clean), slip resistant, soft and durable..

I searched some and found some clogs, sandals, sneakers etc.. but unsure which one to choose as there're so many lol

Can anyone help with finding good nursing shoes?

Thanks! :-)

Hi Georgie, thank you for the suggestion.

They do look nice but a bit over my budjet..

Well.. I guess what you get is what you pay for..

Thanks! ;)

Hi Sallii,

I got mine from Big W. They are called Cushion Feet, very cumfy and only $50. Try them on as I tend to wear a 7 1/2 or an 8 and the size 7 fits beautifully so maybe the sizes are a little out of wack. They look nice too imo they are black leather with rubber sole, cross between a sports shoe and a dress/school shoe, they do up with an elasticaled velcro but have another elastic strip across the top of the tongue for increased fit/support.

I live in mine every chance I get :o)

Hi happy2bme, thank you for the suggestion.

It sounds great and reasonable!

I looked at BigW website but couln't find any.. searched by "Cushion Feet" but no luck..
My size is as just same as yours.. it's good idea to try it on before buy..
Must check at store lol

Thank you again happy2bme ;)

HI Guys,

My name is Ryan from Nurses Only,

in relation to the topic of Nursing shoes,

Nurse Mates shoes are the best in the business and are the most demanded shoe in the USA and U.K

Due to weight comfort and support.

We had these on trial here in Australia, with ladies doing min 8hr shift right through to 12hr shifts and night duty

with excellent results.

If i can help with any questions please feel free to ask.

regards Ryan

Hi I'm going to have to give Colorado a plug here. I've been nursing for close to 15 years and have loved these shoes since I first put them on. Come in the black or blue that most uniforms require and have a choice between slip on or lace up. If you try a pair on you will never go back. They do cost more but they usually last me at least 2 to 3 years (full time work). Just a word of caution most workplace OH&S rules state the the shoes must fully cover the toes and heels so I would steer clear of clogs until you know where you'll end up working and what they'll allow.

HI Nurses

Fran makes a good point about both the Colarado series and OH&S as I have a pair of personal shoes of Colardo and they are good,

and Fran is also correct in saying about clogs, we have been asked many times for some the Nurse mate series with open heels but have said we can't confirm they comply with OH&S

So best off getting closed front and backs to ensure they comply.
