Finding the Right Nursing Shoe: Shoebuy sample product review:
Finding the Right Nursing Shoe for the nurse can be an essential tool for the job. As a travel nurse, this becomes even more important because you don’t want to have to pack and haul more than necessary.
There are a multitude of brands and websites that offer the perfect shoe for the nurse. We were recently approached by Shoebuy.com to review one of their many products, the Klogs – Boca. In return for our time/efforts in providing this product review, Shoebuy.com has graciously offered to give one lucky reader a $25 ShoeBuy gift card code to use on the product of their choice!
In order to be entered into our drawing for the $25 gift card, all you have to do is place a comment at the end of the article, telling us what you look for in a nursing shoe before July 31, 2015.
Our Gypsy Nurse Product Reviewer tried out the “Klogs Boca” from Shoebuy.com
- Full-length cushioned, removable, anti-microbial footbed to absorb shock and provide additional comfort
- Lightweight and flexible with a molded contour toe grip to increase stability.
- Insoles certified latex free and outsoles are non-marking.
- Constructed using industrial-strength molded polyurethane with excellent slip and oil resistance.
- Outsole and footbed provide exceptional shock absorption and superior energy return.
- Designed with a deep heel cup and removable footbed to accommodate orthotics and arch support inserts.
Our Reviewer had the following positive things to say about the Boca Klog
- The size was a perfect fit.
- On a scale of 0-10 for comfort I would rate it a 8.
- This shoe has GREAT non slip properties.
There was a bit of concern over the durability of the product. The reviewer stated that “After the first 8 hour shift of wearing the paint started to come off of them.” In doing some additional research on this product, I did not fin
d this was a consistent issue. Perhaps we received a defective product. I didn’t attempt to return them. Customer service from shoebuy.com was quick and efficient as was the shipping process. When we approached Shoebuy regarding these issues, they were quick to offer a replacement product and informed us:
“At ShoeBuy, we take pride in the products we offer and highly value the feedback of our customers. Per our return policy, ShoeBuy will review an item for manufacturer defect within one year of purchase date. Once our team has the opportunity to review the item, if it is found that the condition is related to a manufacturer defect, we accept the shoes back for return and credit the customer’s original payment method. Of course, we would also work with our customer to coordinate a new item of the same style as a replacement if preferred, and if it is still in stock.”
Other reviews concluded that there are some size issues (It is clearly stated on the website that this product tends to run large.). In addition, one reviewer stated that the Boca Klog was “Better than Dansko clogs that I’ve previously owned due to more flexible sole.”
