Description

  • Video Description View the Video Description for this product! (Please note that the color shown in the video may no longer be available.)
  • You may be more comfortable sizing downward for open-back models (for example, if you are a US size 11, you may want to choose EU size 44).
  • Dansko's most traditional open-back style for men that takes on the critical roll of providing comfort to those in the nursing, hospitality and other occupational fields.
  • Your heel should be either even with or slightly forward of the back of the clog and your toes should not hit the front of the clog.
  • High quality leather upper follows the natural contours of the foot. Box leather is ideal for the workplace environments with wet, acidic or greasy conditions. It has a smooth, clean finish with the natural irregularities removed. It is the easiest leather to maintain, and can be wiped clean with soap and water.
  • Instep collar is generously padded.
  • Roomy Thermoplastic toe box provides durable reinforcement and toe protection while allowing toes to move comfortably.
  • Nonallergenic vegetable tanned leather sockliner wrapped around synthetic foam absorbs and evaporates perspiration.
  • PVC inner frame provides stability and reduces torque and pronation.
  • Rocker bottom propels the foot forward when walking.
  • Dansko Stapled clog outsoles are designed to be suitably slip resistant in workplace environments where excesses of vegetable oils and animal fats are present. Slip resistant tests have been carried out by SATRA, the world's leading research and technology organization for the footwear industry.
  • Dansko's Stapled Clog Collection proudly carries the Seal of Acceptance from the American Podiatric Medical Association.

I am very disappointed with this product. Although I have owned two pair of Dansko shoes previously, these shoes hurt my feet. Both heels become so sensitve that I can barely walk after wearing them for several hours. I have put them in the closet and wear other shoes I own.

I bought both 45 and 46 size and returned the 46. I wear size 12 usually very easy to return the shoes are slippery on the inside maybe a little snug at opening where my foot slides in but not bothersome my feet do feel better and end of day.

Excellent customer service: got my order right the first time with no hassles. This shoe is great. I have not taken them off since they arrive. Very comfortable shoe, great looking, and it gets me also several inches in height. Wonder to wear with jeans.

I'd also recommend: Keep buying Danskos shoes they are the best!

For the women...I have womens size 11 W foot and decided to check out the Dansko men's shoe to wear as a uniform shoe for work. I've heard women's Dansko was a comfortable shoe to wear but runs small and narrow so I decided to get a men's shoe instead which is a bit wider. I went with the size 44 after reading some of the reviews about the size running just a bit small. I am very happy to report it's a great fit, very comfortable, and looks nice. I wear the shoe with a thicker type sock because it's plenty wide for my foot.

I have developed a severe case of plantar fasciitis to the point where some days I could hardly walk. I'd sit at my desk all day at work because I couldn't stand up with out tremendous pain. My daughter, a teacher, recommended I try these shoes. They are great! No more pain -- unbelievable. I bought a black pair and then went back a few weeks later and bought a brown pair. After a month, I had some trouble with the brown pair and called Zappos. What wonderful customer service! Two days later I had a new pair and packed up the bum pair for the return shipment, all paid for by Zappos. These are the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. And Zappos excels in their service delivery. The best of all worlds.

I'd also recommend: OluKai Sliders
