Do you have a size chart?
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?

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.

Not just for nursing
I am very happy with my Bala’s. My daughter is a nurse but I am a high school science teacher. I also need most of the features in a school that she needs at the hospital. I am on my feet all day and they are great. I wear a 10 in most other shoes and the 10 here fits perfectly. After a month of wearing, I bought a second pair so now have both black and grey. I do have a slightly narrow heal, but toe box and heal fit is perfect for me. As some have already stated, the thinner the sock you wear, the easier it is to get on. The loops on the tongue and back of the shoe are there to aid in pulling the inner sock over the heel. I have had several people comment about my “new school” but they are several months old. So far ever think I have got on my shoes, comes of easily and after a simple spray of water they still look like they did out of the box. My daughter loves the canvas box the shoes arrived in. She is very happy to have a place to secure her shoes at the end of her shift. I like the fact it is reusable.
So comfortable however they come up higher in the back and I got a blister
These shoes are every ounce of support I need at work. They have an inner booty that gives compression, a solid cushion under my arches, and soles that are. exactly what I need.
Cute but had to go up a size
I haven’t worn them on shift yet, but I had to go up a size cause the 8.5 I couldn’t even get my foot into. Definitely true in that it’s not for wider feet. But a 9 fits great. I can’t wait to try them in action!
I found the perfect shoe for me!!
I love my shoe(Twelves Nocturnal Black). It is very light and it doesn’t squeak, no noise when I walk. It is not slippery too for our kind of floor in the hospital. I would recommend this to all my colleagues. I would definitely buy this again. Thank you!!
