We know that as a healthcare worker, it can be difficult to find suitable shoes that are comfortable, safe and also meet the requirements of needing to be all-black.

At Grundy's Shoes, we have a selection of orthotic friendly nurse shoes, theatre clogs, and general medical shoes, available. These include shoes from brands such as Birkenstock, FRANKiE4, ECCO, Cabello and KEEN.


Profi Birki

The Profi Birki is specifically designed for professional use, so is perfect for chefs and surgeons, and those in slippery working conditions. It has a waterproof upper, a removable anatomically contoured Birki-foam footbed which will mould to the shape of the foot, and a PU sole which is non-abrasive and resistant to grease, acid, oil, chemicals and lye, with a pronounced heel and deep tread pattern for maximum slip resistance.

Compliant with Australian Standard AS/NZS 2210.3, they also have a hand washable outer so you can easily keep them clean!

Please note: The Birkenstock Super Birki is not suitable for professional use, but ideal for domestic use around the garden or home.

Birkenstock - Profi Birki - $124



The Linz has a smooth leather upper that will resist stains and dirt, and an adjustable Velcro strap for extra security and a custom fit.

It also has a closed heel counter, and a slip resistant and oil and grease-resistant super grip rubber sole, with a natural heel profile and deep heel cup which keeps the natural padding of the foot where it belongs and offers support for long work shifts on your feet.
