Description

  • Video Description View the Video Description for this product! (Please note that the color shown in the video may no longer be available.)
  • If you need a larger size please view SKU 8330041.
  • 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 support and unmistakable style has taken on a critical role of providing comfort to those in the nursing, hospitality and other occupational fields.
  • Available in a variety of high quality leather uppers that follow 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.
  • Non-allergenic 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.

They are very good looking shoes and I do get several compliments. However, everyone told me how comfortable these were, unfortunately they are not. They are very hard and provide very little support. Even after wearing almost them every day for almost 3 weeks, they have not gotten any better.

Love these shoes! They are a bit tighter across the top of my foot and don't seem to loosen up as quickly as the non-patent Dansko shoes. Still they are so sweet and love the shine!

Dansko shoes are a wonderful solution for those who want to look nice on their feet yet want to be comfortable as well. They have so many awesome styles to choose from...however: Those of us with narrow feet have to order the narrow style in the shoes and Dansko only offers them in the boring black, brown, and navy. What if I want more fun shoes? I cannot wear the Dansko shoe unless it is a narrow width. Recently I bought the Sophie Sandal and was very pleased since Dansko has offered these stylish sandals with adjustable straps. Yeah! Great solution so you don't have to make them in several widths. They are so comfortable and look very nice even dressy. (FYI- I usually buy a 39 in Dansko and the sandals needed the 40.) Please Dansko start making some of your fun closed toed shoes in fun colors and styles for those of us with narrow feet!

I'd also recommend: Berkenstock

This patent leather shoe runs small. I had to go up a size. Once that was done they turned out to be the best shoes ever.

I'd also recommend: Sanita (very similar)

Best shoes ever! Was worried about the fit as it was snug to begin, but within hours they felt as comfortable as my sneakers! Loved so much got Brown & a different style with a buckle on it. Love them all!
