This may be a silly question, but what shoes don't pose an infection control issue?
I thought part of the appeal of crocs (from an individual's point of view, not an instiution) was that they could be cleaned and even bleached. Are they more porus than I realize?

If you are wearing the Croc's that have multiple airholes in them, there is a risk for all kinds of contamination...also my old hospital banned them because most people don't wear them with the strap behind their ankles-thus making them an open back, more risk to come off etc. WCB (workers comp) won't cover you if you have an injury while wearing them here.

In our setting, we don't have specific style for uniform, but it has to be the same color! we are free to choose what to wear as long as it's comfortable and you will look decent and professional

Default uniforms

As long as it looks professional and footwear safe I don't think it matters. I started my nursing career having to wear a uniform so have been on both sides.

Think it great that we have moved on so nurses can work in comfortable clothing
