    I like the look of these:

    Does anybody have them? Do people think they would meet the requirements for placement? I am really struggling with the high street and those look comfy and safe.

    Is the link showing for other people, cos following posting its not for me? If not I'm referring to Toffeln Ultra Lite 0405, available from World of Clogs and apparently from them via Amazon (I have vouchers to spend!)

    I know a few have them on placement where I am but to be honest most of the students, midwives and doctors wear crocs in my trust. Obviously only when based in the hospital!

    I don't think we're allowed Crocs, so was looking for the next best option, thanks for your reply x

    I have some toffeln lites and they are one of the most comfy shoes ever, have you seen the fitflop boys clog type though?? sold on Boots online site for £45....these, I have to say are the best ever shoes for placement. will try to post the link on here.....unfortunately though I believe they only go up to a size 5, after that you need to shell out for the ladies ones at about £85.

    I had some of their clogs when I worked in recovery and theatres and they are lovely and comfortable. I think you can chuck them in the washing machine too.

    check with your uni - we have been specifically warned off any clog style. It has to be a full shoe in many places so be careful.

    Majority of the midwives in the trust I work in wear clog type shoes, I think as long as they have a back strap and fully cover the foot at the front they are considered safe.

    in my trust in theaters almost everyone wore crocs when i started, but they have been banned now as they are not 'sharps' proof. almost everyone wears fitflops now.
