Finally! After looking hard for a shoe that's pretty, fits well, and accommodates my orthotic without slipping off my heel or looking like Frankenstein designed it, I ordered this shoe. I love it! I took the removable insole out and replaced it with my orthotic, tried it on, and it fit perfectly. I wore it today, received two unsolicited compliments, and will be ordering a pair in every color. My feet are a standard US size 8 and are on the low-volume side with a high arch, but otherwise standard, and this shoe, in a size 38, was just right.

Something has happened to Dansko. I have worn them my whole life and over the last couple of years the sizes have gotten smaller and the toe box has gotten very odd. This shoe was painful just to put on. Breaks my heart. I am a 12 and the 12.5 was so short in the toe that it hurt badly without even walking in them.

The Dansko Opal worked out great! I had to go to a funeral and needed dress shoes quickly- something I could stand on my feet all day and still be comfortable. These fit the bill. The first time I wore them, I had them on for more than 12 hours of standing. No blisters, no rubs. I did notice a little tightness in the toe area to begin, but it lasted like less than an hour. I am in between sizes 40-41 so I ordered the 41 and have some movement in the heel, which I actually prefer to being too tight. Don't regret the decision to purchase these and hope to have them for many years to come.

Wanted this shoe for lots of walking in cities when traveling, looks better than sport shoes. A bit stiff, I needed to stretch them out and break in to be comfortable. The sole is good for sidewalks and cobblestones. I love the Velcro strap with the decorative silver button feature.

I wear Dansko's all the time, and I've always taken the same size. This one runs way small! I'm sending it back to try another size up. I might even try 2 sizes up. I'm not used to Dansko's being nearly this tight!

Great shoe! I have a slender foot - for a person with a wide foot, these might not fit as well. I needed something dressy that wasn't tight on my toes (pain issues) and that my insoles could fit in - my insoles are a little snug, but they work! For most people, the supportive insole of these shoes should be great for their feet, but with my plantar fasciitis, being able to put in my own insole was what I needed. I ordered a half size up to decrease toe pain - the strap keeps the shoe snug even though I'm wearing it a little big. Thanks Dansko!

I'd also recommend: I like Keen shoes too - wide toe box and ability to put in my own insole is what I need for my feet.

Cute yet dressy shoe, very versatile! Wore it a few times to the office to ease the fit a bit, and then it was very comfortable for a lot of city walking at a multi-day conference.
