A really comfortable shoe, with great cloggy style. Well made, with lots of support. Half the weight of Dansko, which is nice for my feet, and half the price which is nice for my wallet.

These are not that comfortable. I wear them as a very very busy waitress, and they hurt my feet even after five hours of wearing them. I think it is the higher heel. If they did not have the heel they would be great!

Way nicer than the Dansko shoe. The Patent leather is very shiny and pretty like you would expect from patent leather. Comfy and fits true to size. It's a work shoe that actually looks stylish. It's not stiff like the Dansko and...wait for it...it's cheaper! Very happy with this purchase.

I live in Pennsylvania and want a warm, comfortable shoe to wear with socks in the winter. These are fabulous! Give you height without putting any stress on the ball of your foot... and have plenty of room. The navy is very dark, could pass for black. Love 'em! Highly recommend.

With the little 2" heel I forgot to add half a size. Otherwise I am very happy with my experience with Zappos and the quality of the shoe! I am going to buy two pairs!

Not just for nurses. I work in a courtroom and I love this shoe. It's my favorite work shoe. Comfortable all day; great for walking in; just the right height. I've have both knees replaced and these shoes are perfect for me.

I order these in a size 9. I order my shoe on 12/22/11 and received them on 12/24/11. These shoes are very comfortable and they fit well. I really love them. I go back to work on 12/25, I will try them out in the emergency room for four hours. I post you all back with the results.

These shoes are great. I haven't been happy with Bjorn or Dansko for work lately. Too bulky, tight and stiff. I brainstormed to what I used to wear when I first started in the restaurant biz and I remembered I bought Nurse Mates over and over, so I tried them again...and I'm so glad I did. These are the lightest work shoe I've ever had. Very cushy on the inside too. Comfy in every way including over the top of the foot. The only problem I had was after a long shift on the first day, my toes were a little sore but that's only because I chose this heel height..which I need. After a couple of days, I was used to the height and have had no issues whatsoever. The shoe is a little narrow, in style, not fit but I absolutely love it and believe Nurse Mates will be my new favorite work shoe brand in the future. Can't beat the price either.. Highly recommend. :)

I like these shoes. I'd worn Danskos for years before, but they always put too much pressure on the top of my foot and were a little bit narrow. These have a lot more motion and flexibility in the top panel, plus they are one of the few shoes I've had that come in a true wide width. They also have a very cushy sole. They are nice looking under work pants, not super stylish (hey, they're clogs after all). Overall, a great work shoe.

Best nursing shoes I have ever bought! I'm very particular, and my feet are very sensitive -- blister easily, get sore easily. More comfortable than my Danskos by far, and for me, very true to size. My foot is a little bit on the wide side (not enough to need to buy "wide", but definitely not narrow). I was pleasantly surprised at the comfort and quality of this shoe.

Wow, these shoes are awesome! I bought these shoes for work (I am a nurse) and they are perfect. They are super comfortable, have excellent support, and have a memory foam sole that heat activates to mold to my foot. After seeing other nurses wearing these, I decided to get some to replace my athletic shoes that I was currently wearing. I am so glad I made the change. Nurse Mates have been making great nursing shoes for years, and these are no exception. I bought the black and the white, and would gobble up any other colors that were made available!

Thanks to Zappos, I found the perfect shoes for my first clinical rotation as a respiratory therapist. I looked at all of the uniform\/scrub stores for nursing shoes, but Zappos was the only place I could find these shoes in black leather. These shoes are comfortable and supportive, for a full day on your feet. They also give me a nice height boost, since I am short this is a plus. These are easy to slip on, but because of the high back on them, they do not slip off while walking. Zappos was also significantly cheaper than any other place I checked. I placed my order on Saturday afternoon, and received the shoes Monday morning!

They seem very well made and are quite comfortable. They look nice with slacks and jeans, and the 2 inch heel gives them a dressier edge. As other reviewers have noted, I would definitely recommend ordering a half size larger than your normal size, as they seem to run small. They felt a bit narrow at first, but after a couple of hours of wear, they were fine. My only wish is that they came in brown or tan!

I love these shoes. I work a 12 shift in labor and delivery and my feet don't hurt. The first day I wore them, they felt tight across the top of my foot but have broke in nicely. I get lots of compliments on the stylish color. I would definitely buy them again.

Love the shape and feel of it. However, it took quite a while to stretch it out a bit. I am finally at a point where they feel comfortable and don't hurt over my bridge anymore. Now it feels like your are walking on air.

These shoes are definitely cute, but I had to return them. Like another reviewer mentioned, my foot slipped down uncomfortably to the front of the shoe. And I'm just stubborn enough to refuse to go through the gymnastics of pads and all to get comfort shoes to feel good.

I have been happy...after searching for months...with these shoes. They give me a little height plus they are professional and comfortable. I believe they run a tad big.

I love these shoes! They do give you a 2 inch boost for those of us that are height challenged, have a roomy toe box, and great support for those 12 hours shifts without sacrificing comfort. They are a bit heavier than a athletic shoe or a foam clog, but I don't mind. I do have a wide large foot and ordered my normal size and had no issue with fit.

I bought these Nurse Mates in my quest to find a good pair of commuting shoes with decent cushion and a short heel suitable to wear in the office with slacks. These are very comfortable, the workmanship is good, they are true to size and the width is a tad loose but fine. The only drawback is nursing shoes are not very fashionable.
