I was hesitant to buy clogs since I thought they were predominantly a shoe style for the ladies, but a male nurse friend of mine set me straight. These clogs are bomb! Very comfortable to wear, and I have a tough time finding shoes that fit me. I prefer the swivel strap placed across my heel personally, but only because I'm not used to an open-backed shoe not because they slip or anything. The color is nice and pure throughout the entire shoe, and the slip-resistant sole is great for traction on linoleum hospital floors. They are easy to clean if any body fluids get on them. I totally recommend them to all nurses (male & female!), especially this particular model since some institutions don't allow footwear with vents on them.
