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.

This is one of two pairs of shoes that I alternate for work at a medical facility. I've worn clog-style shoes many times in the past, so I knew I could wear these for my job where I'm on my feet all day. They are comfortable. It may take a little getting used to since the heel is high, but once you've become accustomed to it, they feel great. The shoe is a little tight (it runs smaller than the stated size). I wear size 9 shoes, so based on the recommended sizing chart on the website, I ordered a size 42. It was short and tight. I sent it back and I received the size 43 shoes much more quickly than I expected, which was a pleasant surprise. The size 43 shoes are perfect. The construction appears sound, but they are less than a month old, so I'll know more as I continue to wear them.

My girlfriend bought me a pair of Olaf clogs back in the late '70s while I was in college and I wore them down to the wood bottoms. I remember how comfortable they were and how great they looked with a pair of jeans, so I decided to order a pair of Karl's in antique brown. While they do run small, I normally wear a 10W and the size 44 fit perfectly. It didn't take long to break them in. They are easy to slip on when I need to walk the dog, work around the house or run errands. I have gotten some nice comments from women at the local grocery store and notice that many of them wear Danskos when they go shopping. While some guys might by bothered by the stigma of wearing clogs, I could really care less as long as my feet are comfortable!

I've worn clogs for almost 40 years. These are comfortable, last well and hold up to abuse. Zappos' service is perfect.
