Accommodates individual foot shape with room for swelling
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?
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.
Still deciding, but pleased overall.
They hold my heel in place amazingly well. The arch support is perfect. The only thing I have yet to get used to is that they aren't very soft. (I have arthritis in my feet & under-pronation.) I am on concrete all day long and at the end of the day my feet are still very tired, but don't ache like they used to. Overall pleased I just wish they were a little softer. I have ordered the next size up to try a soft insole in.
Great for Dental Hygienists
These shoes are the most comfortable I’ve purchased since beginning my career in dental 13 years ago. I highly recommend.
I loved the design and…
Bought as a gift for graduating nurse. She wasn’t as tickled as I was. Once she’s been in her feet awhile, we may try again!
Lovely color that does not hide stains
This is my second pair of Bala 12s in the last 12 months and they have been the most comfortable water-resistant nursing shoe I've tried. Unfortunately, the clear outer shell is not that stain resistant even when you clean them immediately with the appropriate wipes, so I'll stick to the black color in the future. The shoe would be absolutely perfect if the toe box was not so narrow and more shaped to natural foot curvature.
I like them
I really like these shoes but I have two major complaints: the shoe laces get untied often and they take forever to dry if I machine wash them. Other than these two things they're great! I love the daybreak blue colour. They get noticed often by coworkers and get compliments on how nice they look. They're pretty comfortable. Don't have sore feet even after an entire shift.
