Starting with my time working as an ER nurse before I went to med school and continuing with my med school rotations from medicine to OB to surgery, there's one thing that I've noticed all of the specialties have in common: Danskos. And so I have to admit that when Dansko asked if I would review a pair of their clogs and host a giveaway, I was thrilled.
I chose the stapled clog in tooled leather, which I've been eyeing for the last two years. The pattern is fun but they are still a basic black and professional-looking. I've been wearing them to the hospital every day and already gotten lots of compliments :)
Things that I love about my new Danskos:
- They have a pretty pattern
- I can work 12 hours and at the end of the day my legs don't hurt (these shoes have some serious arch support)
- They wipe/clean off easily, and the two specialties that I'm considering, OB and ER, don't exactly lend themselves to white running shoes (which I learned the hard way)
So whether you're a nursing or medical student, medical professional, teacher, or a busy mom, I think you'll love them. You can check out the stapled clog styles here and the XP clog styles here (leave a comment on this post on which is your fav!) Enter here to win your own pair (and good luck!):

I start my emergency medicine rotation tomorrow which I'm excited about. Although I spent almost two years working as an ER nurse prior to med school, I know that being an ER doc is different, and I think that this rotation will make my decision on whether to pursue ER or OB (residency applications are due in less than two weeks, so let the countdown begin). I don't know if it's possible to love ER quite as much as I love OB, but we shall see...
Linking up with Medical Mondays. Happy Labor Day!
