I’m in between sizes. What should I get?
If you are wavering between 2 sizes, we recommend getting the smaller option. So if you are deciding between size 7 or 7.5, we recommend choosing the 7.
My clogs and running shoes are different sizes. What should I get in BALA?
BALA Twelves are closer in feel to a running shoe than clogs, so we recommend using your running or tennis shoes to guide your size decision.

Invest in your Feet!
Growing up, my mom was a cosmetologist and always on her feet just like a nurse. Unfortunately she made the costly decision early on to opt for style rather than comfort when it came to shoes. Having to get all her toes crushed and realigned at age 20 she drilled into my brain- ALWAYS invest in your feet! These shoes are absolutely just that, an investment. I could tell just from the first time trying them on that the BALAs were comfortable and made to last. As someone with really large feet and long legs, these shoes instantly made a difference in my distribution of weight. Not to mention the incredible grip and durability of the waterproof/sharp-proof design!
Tight across the bridge of foot
I didn’t keep the shoes because they were so tight across the bridge of my foot. They are also quite narrow.
Great work shoe!
I wore them for the 1st time to work yesterday and was so impressed when I got home and wasn't dying to take my shoes off! My back did not hurt and neither did my feet! When I first put them on I wondered if they would be too snug, but I actually liked the fit and my feet felt well supported, especially in the arch. My feet are wide, but these were good for me.
Best shoes ever!
These shoes are incredible!! They are so comfortable; my feet never hurt after running around all day. I’ve been telling all my co-workers that they need a pair!! Only recommendation I have is to wear socks that go above your ankle because the shoe can rub if you wear ankle socks.
A satisfied L&D RN!
I work on a busy L&D unit in Manhattan, so comfort and support is the #1 priority for me in the footwear I choose to wear at the hospital. While it took 2-3 shifts to really break in these shoes, I am finding them to be SO comfortable. My feet are on the narrow side and these are a good fit. They have been easy to clean off so far for some for some of the messier deliveries, too! I initially ordered a size Women's 9 but had to exchange for an 8.5. (I wear either an 8.5 or 9 in other tennis shoe brands.) The exchange process was smooth and BALA was great to work with.
