Sanita Women’s Professional Celina Clog
Ideal Heel and Platform Height

The one-inch differential between forefoot and heel allows for the ideal walking step. The inclusion of rocker bottom technology in the sole of the shoe relieves stress on the arch and base of the forefoot when you are walking. This is an important consideration for workers, such as nurses, who are on their feet all day long.
Weighing in at just two pounds, the Celina is an extremely light weight shoe. This makes every step lighter and less taxing. Despite the lack of weight, this shoe also provides a very good level of support. Unlike many competing shoes, it is just as good for people with high heels as well as those who are flat footed.
Plenty of Toe Room
You get a good level of room to move your toes in the Celina. This accommodates for the natural swelling of your feet that takes place over the course of your work day.
Added Safety Feature
A PVC insert has been added into the sole of the shoe to help to provide stabilization when walking. This is a nice aid to shore up the rigidity of the construction of the shoe, while also providing a shock absorption factor. This shoe has been approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association
Tight Across the Front
Some people have complained about tightness across the front of the shoe. This is, however, what gives the shoe its rigidity and sturdiness.
The shoe tends to run about half a size too small. There can also be confusion due to the fact that Sanita shoes come in European sizing. You may have to find an online sizing conversion chart to help make sense of it all.

Their huge range of shoes are easy to put on and comfortable to wear. They also require a minimum of care and look stylish. The common problem is to do with sizing. Apart from the confusion that may be caused by European sizings on the box, the entire range tends to run a little small.
