Crocs Nursing Shoes: A Guide To The Best Crocs For Nurses

Crocs are very popular in the world of nursing shoes because they are cheap, durable, easy to clean, and - of course - comfortable. Some people may not like their looks, but they more than make up for it in comfort.

Nowadays you see people wearing Crocs to the beach or the pool, but before hitting the everyday market, Crocs were originally designed for nurses. These clogs are made of a synthetic Croslite material that is extremely lightweight so it won’t weigh you down, and they are odor resistant and easy to clean. Crocs come highly recommended for their roomy fit, making them a great option for nurses with wide feet.

This Crocs nursing shoe style is different from most crocs in that it looks more like a regular sneaker. If you prefer the looks of a sneaker instead of a clog, this may be the shoe for you. These shoes feature a no-lace slip-on design, but they also include eyelets for you to add laces if you want a more secure fit.

These shoes tend to run a little small, so I suggest buying one size larger. These shoes were created with nurses in mind, and it is comfortable, durable and easy to clean.

Crocs are great options for nursing clogs and shoes. Their synthetic material makes them lightweight, slip-resistant, odor-resistant, and easy to clean. But the real selling point is their comfort. Crocs are so comfortable, you will wear them all day at work and keep them on while you are relaxing at home!
