Frequently Asked Questions

What are Twelves made of? Twelves are made up of two layers: the KnitFit upper and the ShiftShield outer. KnitFit is a knit, glove-like base layer that fits your individual foot shape and gives it a nice supportive hug. ShiftShield is a fluid-resistant shell that prevents any nasty spillages from seeping through to your foot. Both of those layers attach to molded polyurethane foam soles with high-traction rubber treads (so you won’t go slipping and sliding in the hospital corridors). 

 

Are Twelves waterproof? The outer part of the shoe (we call this our “ShiftShield”) is fluid-resistant and was intentionally designed to keep the gross stuff out. Most liquids will run right off the shoe! 

 

Are Twelves stain-proof? The ShiftShield layer of the Twelves is designed to repel liquids, but it is NOT stain-proof. If spilled fluids are not wiped immediately from the textile, a stain may set into the shield material. Some stains will come out with a cold/delicate machine wash; however, this depends entirely on the staining agent. Iodine and blood may stain even if wiped immediately.

I’m in between sizes. What should I get?

If you are wavering between 2 sizes, you should order the smaller of the 2 unless your feet run wide (we recommend opting for the larger size in this case).

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.

I need help picking a size. How can I get a recommendation?

We’d love to help! Click the chat button on the lower right hand section of your screen or email us at call-light@WeAreBALA.com and we’ll get back to you ASAP!

If I don’t get the right size, can I return or exchange my order?

Our first priority is getting you the right size so we accept returns and exchanges for 30 days after purchase. See the returns and exchanges section of this page for more information.

Returned Shoes

I never actually used them. They seemed like they would be comfortable when I was walking around the house trying them. I normally wear a soda 6 shoe so I purchased that size. They were too small. Then I purchased a 6.5 & 7 (in black and light blue). The black twelves felt ok in a size 7. Still a little snug. The size 7 blues were too big. I’m not sure why there was a discrepancy in the sizes and fit but I just decided to return them because I figured for the price they should have been a little bit better.

High quality shoe too narrow for my feet

The shoe is very high quality and has all the features that make it a great choice for health care workers, unfortunately I have wide, flat feet and these shoes are too narrow. If Bala ever makes a shoe for men in a wide size I would buy it without hesitation.

Bala review

I only have one complaint. You can’t wear ankle socks with these. The tabs at the front and back of the shoe cause blisters if you wear ankle socks. Otherwise my feet are not on fire after a 12-14 hour shift at the hospital where I typically do not sit down.

Cinderella Story!

These shoes fit perfectly the moment I open them up out of their super cute and practical box! Once I tried these I have worn nothing else to my 13 hour, on my feet shifts. I can be the first to run to a bed alarm, I can feel safe that these shoes will repel any surprises I literally walk into, and when I go home at the end of shift, my feet won’t hurt. I can put them back into their useful box, leaving any yuck from my shift behind! Also, customer service has your back!
