These shoes are fantastic! Not only am I getting a ton of compliments on them, but they are as comfortable as they are stylish. There was literally no break-in time, I slipped them on my feet, wore them to work for 12 hours and did it again the next day. No rubs, no soreness, no blisters, nothing. The slip-resistant sole is great (although, I will admit, that part is a little lacking on grease versus water) and the fit and feel of the shoe is perfect for me. I've been buying the cheap, off-brand work shoes for years now and didn't really realize just how much of a difference a good, solid pair of shoes can make! My feet, back, knees and even shoulders don't hurt after a long 14 hour day on my feet. It's truly remarkable how much of a difference the right pair of shoes can make. With all good things come a few negatives - these suckers aren't very breathable, so if that's an issue for you, be forewarned. It's not enough for me to want to return them, but I did buy some spray to combat the smell. Also, since I don't like my socks showing at all, I had to get some of the super low riding liner-style socks in order to come down below the shoe completely. Again, no big deal for me, but it does play a factor in other's decisions. Overall, I love these shoes. They are a well-made, supportive and stylish shoe, worth every penny!

I bought these shoes and initially they fit. I wore to work and my feet killed me all day. I wish I bought a 9.5 instead of the 9. I have the white Meredith's and they fit perfectly. I wasted my money.

These shoes were too wide for my feet, and I need something with good arch support but these didn't seem to have any. I liked the style and they felt like I was wearing slippers.

Very disappointed. First of all not much in the way of padding. Then in wearing them in the house they seemed fine, however at work, my toes were pinched, so the sizing was off. Since I wore them, I couldn't return them. I have a pair of Clarks that are more comfortable.

These are great shoes. I walked all day in them and normally I only get that comfort with Merrells. Very comfortable shoes. The heel is just the right height so my pants don't drag on the ground. I am not a nurse but I'm glad I found these shoes. So cute too!

Great shoe! Comfortable and looks great on. My size was a bit too tight, so got it in a wider size and seems to be fitting much better.

Way too wide in the heel for a women's shoe. No arch support and cannot remove insoles to slide in orthotics. Cheap look and feel. Would not recommend for anyone who stands for 8 or more hours.

I needed some slip resistant shoes for work and had been experiencing foot pain from a developing bunion. In just a few days of wearing these, my foot already feels better. They're so comfortable and supportive.

I'd love to give this shoe a 10 star rating but sadly 5 is the most allowed. Let me start by saying I'm not a nurse but have very problematic feet. They're wide and completely flat and trust me when I tell you this combination limits shoe options in a big way!! THANKFULLY, Zappos allows me to try and try and try as many shoes as my endurance will allow and in total desperation I decided to try "nursing shoes" thinking they might be a more supportive since nurses spend such an incredible amount of time on their feet ... And ... I was right. I found Nurse Mates and ordered 3 different styles but these Vigor suited my needs the best. NOW ... let me tell you about comfort and stability. Right out of the box these shoes were comfortable and I was able to wear them on a 7 hour shopping excursion the first time out! There's arch support w/o pain and that's saying a lot coming from someone who's 100% flat footed. The shoe cradles your foot and the leather is conforming. I love, love, love the lace up AND mini zipper combo. At first I thought it was pretty odd to have both but it's not a style issue and it gives me a 2nd option for taking the shoes off & putting them on. I also love the black/silver brush stroke kind of print (also available in the navy/silver brush stroke also). It's not just a plain black lace up shoe but rather has some dimension and visual interest. Honestly, I could go on forever but there's no point ... Just place the order and allow the shoes to speak for themselves. Comfort beyond belief!!! I only wish Nurse Mates made more shoes w/black and/or brown soles and not so many w/white.

I was in LOVE when I first laid eyes on this shoe! I am currently in nursing school and I thought that these stylish shoes were just what I needed to complete my uniform, and they were, for a week. The shoe quality is horrendously poor, I ordered these in June 2016 and as of right now I have lost patches of "leather" the glue is loose therefore the soles are seperating from the shoe and the material has creased and flaked whereever it folds from walking. I have never used and cleaners on the shoe what so ever therefor I am positive the material wasn't damaged by harsh cleaners, I do not work in the shoes at all so over use is not an issue. I loved the style of this shoe but I would never trust the brand again unless it was a Zappos defect and not one of the actual Nurse Mate company. I could never be quite sure which creates a reluctance to shop with either, please be informed and aware of my experience and hopefully uou will not be able to say the same.

I really like these. For first the first wearing during a 12-hour shift I brought an old extra pair to change into, but I was able to wear these the whole shift without difficulty. At first I felt the insert left me over-probated but that settled out within a few hours. The print is great: shades blue when you wear blue, purple- and pink- compatible as well.

I had to order a 1/2 size larger for the length. Width is perfect. They did make my feet sweat but I didn't notice until I took them off. They aren't very soft on the bottom; another insole might help that. My mother would say they look "orthopedic" but they make my feet look smaller and kind of cute! I am going to buy more of them. Maybe even a white pair so I can experiment dying them.

I'm on the fence with the fit of these shoes. Let me start off with the pros: They are SO much lighter and more comfortable compared to Danskos! The sole is super padded and soft. I'm an RN- I've had my one pair of Danskos for over 8 years now. It took me a while to break them in at first and I remember having sore areas of my foot when I first purchased them. These Nurse Mates are the complete opposite. I wore them today for a 9 hour shift- super comfortable, no sore feet! I love the paisley design on them- they're really cute and seem to be a great quality considering they're so much cheaper than Danskos. Now the only con is the fit! I first purchased these in my normal size of 5.5. I tried it on, with socks, like I would wear them on a normal day, and they were big. My heel was slipping out as I walked. So I exchanged them for a size down to a 5. (Kudo's to Zappos on your amazingly painless and fast exchange process!) The 5 fits perfect WITHOUT socks, but with socks WAY too tight! Since it's summer, I feel like I can wear them without socks, but in the winter, I'm going to need another option.. So all in all, a great cheaper option instead of Dansko and surprisingly much more comfortable; but truly disappointed with the difference in just a half size!

These shoes have fulfilled every claim they made; no break-in time, great arch support, cushioned heel, and great alignment capabilities. I bought the white and they are great. I plan to buy another pair soon.

This is my second pair of these shoes .. I wore the first pair out! I had hip replacement surgery and found out very quickly that depending on what pair of shoes I wore I could count on having "aches and pains" the next day. I was going on vacation and knew I needed a shoe that I could walk long distances in and not "hurt" the next day. Well these exceeded my expectations. The only criticism I have is that they only come in white. Although black are shown they aren't of the same material or construction. I had to send the black ones back. So wearing white after Labor Day isn't an option .... my feet, back and legs are more important than social convention.

Another review said it felt true to size, was very comfortable and didn't need breaking in. I found the same thing. I wear 9.5Wide normally, I got the black in that, and think it's perfect for my vacation, which will involve a lot of walking and wearing slacks (instead of jeans). I highly recommend for a person who will be on their feet, walks a lot, or simply is tired of having sore feet at the office.

LOVE THESE SHOES! I ordered these and the Bryars, both in 9.5 to accommodate my orthotics. The Bryars fit perfectly, but because of the stretchy comfort panel at the instep on these (which rocks, by the way!) I nearly walked out of them. Returned them for a 9 and they are absolutely fantastic! I have zero foot pain, l-o-v-e the 2 inch heel, and the rainbow colors are gorgeous.

I got these because all the reviews said they were wonderful, and I spend 11+ hours on my feet a day, five days a week and thought they would be a good investment. I don't think these are terrible, but I won't wear them to work again for a while. I have wide feet, and ordered the wide in my size, and these were still not comfortable. They will probably stretch with time but my advice to anyone with wide feet like me would be order wide AND go up a half size, otherwise you will not be comfortable.
