If you are a nurse, then you will realize how important it is that you are capable of standing up straight for long hours at a time when you are working at the hospital. There are many jobs that require a person to stand up all day long, but arguably… the job of being a nurse is one of the more demanding jobs. A nurse has to run up and down the hallway from one room to the next in order to help out her patients, who are dependent on the medical service she dispenses.

It should not be underestimated how much of a strain this puts on a nurse’s feet. Standing up and walking around all day long, sometimes doing 12 hour shifts, is going to play hell on everybody. Especially your feet. You’ve got to wear good nursing shoes in order to be able to handle the pressure, or your job will take pretty much everything from you. Nursing is already quite a challenge, mentally. Don’t make it a physical exhaustion as well. So for that reason, make sure that you wear sturdy nursing shoes that will let you stand up straight for long hours at the hospital.

Both your feet as well as your patients will thank you for it. So without further ado, let’s have a look at some of the best nursing clogs that this world has to offer: The Dansko Pro Xp nursing clogs for women!

Dansko Pro Xp Nursing Mules Review

These Dansko mules are made entirely of leather, but have a synthetic sole. It’s pretty much the ultimate combination in footwear materials. Leather is known to be very durable, but it also stretches, making it easy to break your footwear in. A synthetic sole is sure to last you a long time as well, although it doesn’t stretch. But then again, it doesn’t need to, because you’re wearing the sole, you’re wearing the shoe!

This mule for female nurses is very easy to slip on and off. It has a very roomy toe box so that you can jiggle your toes around without having to feel constrained in any way. They are about 2 inches high, so they will give you ample ankle protection. The memory foam footbed gives you optimal arch support and cushioning, so that you’ll be able to roam around hospital rooms all day long without getting the feeling that you are starting to suffer from foot fatigue. They also come with a padded instep, which gives you a whole lot of extra comfort while you are walking around. The rubber outsoles are slip resistant, because let’s face it… a nurse has to deal with fluid spillage from time to time.

Stylish & Robust

When you wear these babies around the hospital, your co workers’ jaws are going to drop. They aren’t just stylish, but also super robust. You could even wear them around a dirty kitchen where things are constantly being dropped and toes are constantly being pumped against things while people walk around in a big, big hurry. Dansko’s Pro Xp mules can take a good roughin’, so you’ll be hard pressed to find scuffing or tearing on these mules, even after a few weeks of fulltime use.

XP Line

The Xp line is relatively new in the Dansko line of nursing shoes. These are lighter than most nurse clogs Dansko has produced in the past. They also have removable insoles and they have better traction on the outsoles. It’s good to have shoes that don’t feel like bricks tied to your poor feet. Having great traction also makes it way more easy to walk than when you don’t have traction and you’re slipping around all the time. When you wear these Dansko nursing clogs, you will likely not developed any back pain, even at the end of a 10, 11, or 12 hour shift.

Plantar Fasciitis

One online reviewer stated that she has plantar fasciitis, and that these nursing mules have really helped her out with that. Plantar fasciitis is a very painful condition of the foot, where your plantar fascia has become inflamed, which gives you a the feeling of standing in a bucket of nails when you get out of bed. It’s very painful, because the plantar fascia is a very big ligament. If you have it, you’ll want to take it seriously and cure it as fast as you possibly can. If you don’t have it, you’ll want to prevent it at all costs. And you can do that by ensuring that you’ve got good foot support. And with these babies on your feet, you’re not going to be lacking arch support any time.


If you’re a female nurse that has to do a lot of standing and wants to do so comfortably and looking good, then these are the mules for you.
