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.

What’s my size in EU or Men’s sizes?
So far I absolutely love these shoes. They’re easy to clean, true to size, and are extremely comfortable while also giving support for my shifts.
Amazing. I had them for only a week but I love them. They are so comfy and water resistant. As a nurse that works in a dialysis center, the water resistant feature is a must!
These are super comfortable! I have high arches and they have helped a lot with that. I get a lot of compliments on them at work
Wow. I’ve been wearing Dansko’s for years and after finally cracking and trying compression socks along with them, I had to find something different so I didn’t feel like my feet were killing me at the end of the day. Enter Bala Twelves. I love that they are easy to clean and don’t scuff like my Dansko’s, not to mention how much lighter they are. My shifts can be as long as 16 hours and my feet don’t know the difference from an 4 hour day. I adjusted the shoestrings to my comfort and now just use the back pull tab to slip them on. They are slightly bigger than my normal size 7 sneakers but I don’t mind since I wear thicker socks in the winter. I’ll never go back, and I’ll be ordering the gray ones when they are back in stock! Well done Bala. Customer for life.
I’ve been a nurse for 30 years. Bunions and plantar fasciitis. I’ve had these shoes for two weeks now, the first working 60 hours and my feet felt fine. Would recommend.
