I had to order one size up with this style. I wear a 6, was way too tight. Went to a 6.5, was tight but fit with no socks. So I ordered a 7, and fit well. I recommend order a size up with this style. I work in a veterinary clinic and need shoes that can withstand standing for long periods of time, hair, and urine / vomit, plus hide dirt. So far these are working out very well.

Ugh! Love these shoes but the sole is coming detached from the bottom of the shoe. Very disappointing!

Seemed pretty close to fit but felt just a **smidge** too big and sounded very clunky. Felt great when I put them on but my feet were killing me after a few hours. Even after I took them off and put on my regular paid (cheapo work Sketchers) my feet hurt so bad. Worst shoes I've ever owned.

It's generally comfortable but after 10 hours of walking around at work, my ankles hurt. I still love to wear it.

Style-Edda Got these in this weekend and couldn't wait to wear them. Comfortable enough, fit well, true to size (10W). I had a different style of nursemates I bought about 3 yrs ago and knew then I should have bought an extra pair. LOVED them and they still hold up well but leather is too scratched to keep them clean and white. The heel of those are of a different material and just now starting to show signs of wear after almost daily use this past 3 yrs. Been searching everywhere and simply cannot find them. I found these and really liked the look. I'll be able to wear them with dresses at work too. My only concern is the heel and sole material seems to be very soft. Reminds me of a hard marshmallow. This may increase the comfort but I suspect they are going to show signs of wear (my foot tends to rotate out) and I will not be able to get much use out of them. Basically, the heel is going to be ruined before the shoe itself starts to look bad?. That's why I loved the other ones. First time I ever had a nursing shoe of any kind that the heels didn't wear down on the outside and they supported my ankles. Overall though, I will probably buy these again if they don't become "extinct" too

These are shiny shoes. I like them for looks and comfort. However, these shoes are Not Slip Resistant as stated. I had better traction in my old, busted, tread completely worn off( off, not down) tennis shoes than these. Maybe the difference is in the fact that these are nurses shoes and I work in a bakery/deli ?????. I figured slip resistant meant slip resistant. But honestly, walking across a floor with a thin layer of water shouldn’t almost land me on my behind.

The width was perfect but the shoes did not have enough cushion for the balls of my feet. I'm a nurse and stand/walk for long periods of time.

These are the most comfortable shoe ever. I have a bunion on the top of my foot and tie or Velcro shoes just hurt to much. I am not a nurse, but I wanted a good supportive shoe and this is it??????

I bought these shoes because I can't try anything on right now (because everything is locked down) but really needed new walking shoes. Other than the color (I have to wear all black at work) these are the exact shoe I wear to be on my feet 8-9 hours per day. Just like the two pairs I've bought for work, they require no break-in period at all. The support in the soles eventually wears out on all active shoes, but when these do, I will probably buy these again.

Overall this is a good shoe. I have to wear office wear for work so they look fine with slacks. They may be a little narrow but I think they will stretch a bit. Overall, I like this shoe. I'm waiting to see if they come in brown.

Amazing! Excellent arch support! I got the black leather. I would have expected them to look less attractive for how supportive they are, but they look good. Very happy with these. I wasn’t sure about the slip on style, elastic laces, but turns out that I love that feature. You can also adjust the elastic lace to fit tighter or looser by unknotting and reknotting it. Or switch them out for the regular laces that came with them.

These are really cute and are more supportive than one would expect by the look, but not as supportive as other Nurse Mates. I ended up returning these and keeping the Nurse Mates Velocity, which were extremely supportive shoes, especially in the arch.

Hard, not comfy and definitely not a good shoe for working on your feet all day. You'll end up needing a nurse after wearing nursemates. I ended up trying hokas and they are great

I work on my feet lifting heavy bags all day and I needed shoes that would be comfy but supportive. I thought shoes for nurses would be a great choice since nurses also work long hours on their feet. I bought these and they were cute but hard as a rock. My feet hurt even worse by the end of the day. I washed them and the plastic In the heels moved or melted, I'm not sure, but after 1 wash they were unwearable. The material in the heal was rock hard after and cut into my heals. You should be able to wash shoes.... And they not mess up. I've never had a shoe do that. I ended up returning them after 2 weeks.

I give Nurse Mate shoes all the credit for my feet being in such great shape after years of being a nurse. I wore them most of my career and am so happy to find them in a little more stylish shoe that the ones I wore in the beginning of my career. These feel so good and stabilize my feet, so my hips don't hurt anymore! Highly recommend them.

So cute except I felt like I was rocking forward in them. High arch and it felt like I was in heals almost. Too “tilted” for my taste.

I’ve had feet pain with my work (nursing) shoes for years, now that I’m older and heavier. These were just what the doctor ordered! Ha! I’ve been working 12 hours on my feet and and my feet and knees don’t hurt anymore. Yay! I’d begun to wonder if I’d ever find comfortable shoes again for my old feet.

Very stylish, not true to size. I needed a little more room for my toes. I did not return it because the 9 maybe to large.

I was attracted to these shoes after seeing my sister-in-law's pair, but when mine arrived they were just a bit too small and I thought they felt a bit flimsy compared to my favorite slide, Merrell Encore. You get what you pay for, I guess! Cute style and fairly comfortable for the price. If they had fit better, I probably would have kept them; as it is, I returned them and decided not to try the next larger size.
