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.

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 45 days after purchase. See the returns and exchanges section of this page for more information.
What’s my size in EU or Men’s sizes?
Pro: I love the color combo, comfort of footbed and fluid resistant. Con: So hard to get the shoe on and I have narrow feet. You definitely need the loop tab to get your foot in. Once I did get it on my socks were bunched up. I thought the toe box could be a tiny bit wider. So, sadly I returned. Bala, if you do read these reviews please consider a traditional sneaker fit option.
Hands down my favorite nursing shoe. Especially perfect for night shifters (no squeaky noises) so you can slip in and out of rooms without waking your patients up!
Incredible! Exactly what I was looking for
My feet usually hurt a lot after a twelve hour shift, so I was looking for something that was going to be comfortable with good arch support, and that was also very easy to clean. These are perfect. The look is very cool and trendy, and the shoes themselves are so comfortable. They took a few days to be broken into, but after that they were extremely comfortable. I'm usually an 8, but I have wide feet, so I tried an 8 and the 8.5; the 8.5's were too long, and the 8s were wide enough after I broke into them a little. I would definitely appreciate if they came in a wide size, though. The fact that I can wipe them off while I'm at work and then throw them into the washing machine when I get home was a big consideration of mine when looking for shoes, and I'm happy these are so easy to clean. The traction is also really good.
Nurses Dream Shoes
I loved the color, style, material. But most of all loved that my feet didn't hurt after a 12 hour shift. The support is amazing.
Not easily slipped on and off. Also the first day I wore them killed my feet but they were fine after that. Also I am usually a 7.5 but I was an 8 in these. If you have wide feet do not get these. They are narrow. I love them but I can see where people with different than mine would find them unwearable. 4 starts are for customer service so unsure friendly and that these shoes are great for me!
