Would it bother you if your doctor was wearing shoes like these?

I love them, but can't really justify them unless I wear them for work, at least sometimes. They have loads of styles - some are definitely innappropriate but wondered if some would be ok. Rest of outfit is usually colourful but fairly smart/ conservative.

If my doctor was barefoot and wearing a bikini I would mind too much if I could get in to see her!

I'm not sure it would bother me, more I'd wonder what was wrong with you to wish to wear what appears to be little girl shoes in a professional environment,

Are you sure they are for adults? Grown women?

No, they would make me smile though. Do you judge your patients on their footwear?

Not at all. They make me smile.

I don’t think they’re very professional.

Our family GP (God bless her she's retired now but she was simply the best) used to wear a patent t-bar dolly shoe. My gran and mother used to really comment on it. Honestly? Wear them. It might even lighten difficult situations. smile

Wouldn't bother me in the slightest.

Go for it. smile

I'd wonder why an adult woman doing a serious professional job would think they were the sort of shoes she should wear to work.

Wouldn’t bother me, I like them!

I’d think they were cute but very inappropriate. I’d think there was a side of you that was attention seeking, and as a professional with access to people’s inner lives that would be slightly worrying.

A lot of NHS staff dress a bit differently in my experience so I wouldn’t bat an eyelid. If you’re a GP chances are most people wouldn’t even notice your shoes.

RiddleyW Tue 16-Jul-19 11:19:50

And I’m an adult woman doing a serous professional job. Today I’m doing it in sparkly trainers.

Lulu1919 Tue 16-Jul-19 11:20:03

No would make me smile 😊

I love them serious at the top but party on your feet grin I think they would give patients a smile at least. I had a urologist who wore quirky bow ties it gave me somethi g cheery to think about when the news wasn't always great.

Wearing them with fairly boring clothes would be fine.
If the rest of your outfit matched the shoes I’d be a bit taken back.

ShortyShortLegs Tue 16-Jul-19 11:22:44

They'd make me smile and see you as the sort of person who is professional but not boring!!
Better than muddy crocs like one of our GP's wears, or heeled sandals tied at the back with a bow like another GP.....and at least you'd be able to run in those in an emergency!

Vesperia Tue 16-Jul-19 11:23:19

wow - I love those, just looked at the web site & you should definitely get the ones with the pills on them

Ninkaninus Tue 16-Jul-19 11:24:00


I wouldn’t judge but I agree with others, I’m not sure you’re sending the right message wearing that kind of thing when you’re a doctor potentially dealing with really quite desperate situations and/or people’s confidential health matters.

I’m also interested in why on Earth you feel you need to justify to yourself having a pair of shoes that really makes you happy? Why shouldn’t you have those shoes to wear outside of work, just because you love them.

I wouldn’t feel any guilt at all about buying them, nor any need to justify it.

WhatTheAbsoluteFuck Tue 16-Jul-19 11:24:01

I’d want to know where you got them from grin

It’s a misery working in the NHS at the moment so whatever brightens your day and bollocks to anyone who says otherwise.

MumdayMania Tue 16-Jul-19 11:24:05

They are fine apart from the smiley face ones. They would be very unprofessional to wear when giving serious or distressing news to patients.

LoafofSellotape Tue 16-Jul-19 11:26:39

I don't care what a doctor wears as long as I can get an appt.

They're only like Crocs and loads of Health care professionals wear them.

My consultant wears a Mr Man tie,makes me laugh when I see him grin

Sparkletastic Tue 16-Jul-19 11:27:17

I wouldn't judge you because of your job but because they are hideous

Tunnocksmallow Tue 16-Jul-19 11:29:50

Go for it OP. I’ve just bought myself the Drug Store ones. Can’t wait for them to arrive. Life is too short for boring shoes smile
