Description

  • Video Description View the Video Description for this product! (Please note that the color shown in the video may no longer be available.)
  • Your heel should lift up and down with every step, so if you are a half-size you may be more comfortable sizing up (for example, if you are a US 7.5, you may be more comfortable in an EU size 38).
  • Dansko's flagship classic for all-day comfort, support and unmistakable style.
  • 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.
  • Protective Polyethylene heel counter allows the heel to move up and down when walking. Also provides lateral stability and acts as a natural shoe horn.
  • PVC inner frame provides stability and reduces torque and pronation.
  • Polyurethane outsole provides shock absorption and flexibility, withstands surfaces of extreme heat and cold, and protects feet, legs and back during long hours of standing or walking.
  • 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.

Great Work Shoe - I read a lot of the reviews posted on the website before ordering my pair of Dansko’s. I ended up ordering a size bigger then what I normally wear and they fit perfectly! I knew that they are made by hand so every pair is not exactly the same size. I love my Dansko's!

Couldn't get used to them - I ordered these thinking this will help my feet in my job (medical). I didn't like the heel slippage (this is supposed to be how they fit, they slip up & down on the heel as you walk)... I didn't care for that. Also the platform sole is a bit high. I just felt very unstable in these shoes. My job requires alot of quick movements and these shoes seemed to me to be more for walking forward in a straight line, not for quick movements, forward and/or side to side... so I sent them back.

Best shoes ever - I would very much the Dansko Professional shoes -they are the MOST comfortable shoes I have ever worn- I work in a hospital and people told me over and over again to buy some Danskos but I was unwilling to spend the $$...after 2 yeas of crappy shoes at a lower cost, I broke down and it's the best decision I ever made. I would definitely buy them again. I would also highly recommend Zappos.com- I ordered my shoes online and received them within a 24 hour period. It was very fast. Great purchase.

Great work shoe! I work 12.5 hour shifts in a hospital. I have spent a lot of money buying every "nursing shoe under the sun" and my Danskos are the best purchase I have ever made… LOVE THEM! I do have to say I originally ordered a size 37 (I am a size 7) and the 38 was the better fit. With Zappos’ easy return policy, I had my shoes within 2 days.

Professional and comfortable - These shoes are great for work. I wear them to work standing for 10+ hours per day, and they have helped my plantar fasciitis. They do need to stretch some so the sides don't rub, so I would recommend wearing them with some medium-thickness socks. I wear a 39, and they seem to be true to size. I think they are a tiny bit narrower than they should be, but a few wearings with socks have stretched the leather just enough.

I'd also recommend: Birkenstock Footprints, Clarks

What a treat - Excellent quality and styling. Fit was true to size and extremely comfortable. An even bigger surprise was placing an order on Saturday and having it delivered to my door Monday morning.
