Professional Stapled Clog by Dansko Unisex Nursing Clog

The most well-known brand in workwear clogs, Dansko has been making high-quality shoes for decades. Their classic Professional Stapled Clog features the iconic rocker bottom for all day comfort and an easy stride. The contoured midsole offers arch support, and the thick sole provides superior shock absorption that fights fatigue. The toe box provides plenty of room to breathe, while the sock lining has antimicrobial properties to help fight odor. The polyurethane outsole and non-porous uppers are easy to clean with a damp cloth to keep your shoes looking good for a long time to come.

This clog from Nurse Mates offers a lower heel (1.5” rather than the standard 2”) and a sporty style reminiscent of more athletic tennis shoes. This slip-on clog is comfortable, professional and durable and will go with all of your workwear outfits. The leather uppers are treated with a stain-resistant finish to make them even more durable, and the slip-resistant soles keep you balanced all day long.

ANYWEAR Women's Zone Convertible Clog.

If you’re looking for a really lightweight clog, you should definitely consider the Women’s Zone Convertible Clog. The super low weight is thanks to a soft DBL compound with a slip-resistant rubber outsole. The heel strap provides extra stability while the anatomical footbed cradles your soles during a long shift. You can also swivel the heel strap forward to wear as a traditional clog if you would prefer. The slip-resistant rubber outsole will keep you secure and balanced no matter what happens during your shift. Choose from classic solid colors that go with everything, or fun prints to liven up your stretch scrubs ensemble.

This clog offers more features than ever, starting with a removable leather-covered dual-density PU footbed with Dansko Natural Arch™ technology. The memory foam cushioning offers next-level comfort, and the footbed can be removed to accommodate orthotics.

Another budget nursing clog is the Unisex Comfort Clog by Landau. The Comfort nursing clog offers the same support as their Revive clog, but it also features a higher wedge heel that reduces back strain.

The closed-back is easy to take on and off while still providing a secure fit. The sock liner is built to wick moisture, which helps keep your feet dry and works to help minimize odor.
