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.

3rd pair

This is the BEST shoe I’ve ever worn. I’ve tried ALL the other nursing shoes. None compare to these. I can do my 3 12’s in a row without aches and pains.

So good!

At first, I thought they were a bit too narrow even if my feet aren't wide at all but I got used to it and my feet don't hurt at all at the end of the day. I'm so glad I tried this!

Back ache is gone!

Retired government employee. Just purchased my second pair of BALA twelves! I have had ripped achilles plus torn tendons from hauling suitcases and walking the world, causing me to wear supportive shoes. Constantly having backaches I decided to try the twelves. What a relief! No more backache!

I Have Never Loved A Pair Of Shoes So Much

Oh my goodness, I absolutely love love love these shoes. I am someone who has spent HOURS researching, reading article after article for the perfect pair of tennis shoes. I have tried just about every well known one you could imagine and none of them were “wows.” Then I took a chance on these and I’m oh so glad that I did. I love them so much that I literally called every friend and family memember in the medical field to brag about them. The ONLY thing that I would recommend is a little more traction on the bottom, other than that, they are perfect.
