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.

These are hard-to-find shoes, at least in the US. For a clog, these are the best in the world. Zappos did a great job of providing a huge selection and of notifying me when this model was available. Superb service!

I love Zappos and have bought 5 pairs of shoes from them over the last several years. I really didn't think buying shoes "online" could be a viable alternative but with their super customer service, free shipping and return, it was easy. They have a great selection that would require you to search many "brick & mortar" stores to find. On my last order they comped me for express next day delivery free. Did I mention that their customer service is the bomb?! I am a total fan of this company and wish more online stores would follow their model. Thanks Zappos.

I had Achilles tendon surgery and needed a comfortable shoe with a bit of an elevated heel and no pressure on the rear of my foot... these hit the mark perfectly for me. Very comfortable, well made, good looking, couldn't be better.

These shoes have a tendency to move around when you walk. I'd suggest Dansko Professional with a back.

After more than forty years on this planet, I say wholeheartedly that Dansko clogs are the most comfortable shoes I have ever had--period. That is after years of long distance running, lots of hiking, work on an electronics factory floor, and most recently shlubbing around in an office. I wish I had these clogs at the start of my journey. Both the Karl and the Professional are good. I prefer the Karl, but I keep a pair of the professionals to slip into at the office for the greater formality of having something more than socks cover the heels. The black-oiled Karls are the casual clogs for the weekend--well worth it, as all Danskos are. Good with a casual pair of jeans, but they are harder to clean than box, cabrio, or bullhide.

Yes, they really do run small. Get a size bigger than you think you need, based on the conversion chart - and, I'm doing this review thing because they were really nice when I had to exchange them.

Very comfortable and supportive especially through the arch. I added an absorbent liner as I like to wear them barefoot and have sweaty feet.

The clogs are great. I can be on my feet for 12 hours straight in these and my feet don't get sore. With sneakers or any other shoes, my max is 2-3 hours. It's amazing.

I bought these to wear with dresses and skirts as I had foot surgery a few years ago and cannot wear regular shoes. I already have the Professional in black & brown and had been switching off with those. These are very comfy and look great with skirts and dresses. Now I just need them in brown!

Really liked the shoe. Beautiful quality and nice leather. Would have liked to wear them but the advertised size 47 is more like a US size 12 than a 13.5-14. I have size 13 feet and have never had a problem with previous Zappos orders in size 13 and these shoes simply were way too small.

This shoe absolutely solved my lower back "ache" (muscular in nature, although I had back surgery about 4 years ago). They are so comfortable for working 12-20 hour shifts. Wouldn't choose any other shoe for my work ever again!

I'm a surgeon and stand on my feet for very long periods of time. Dansko's are very comfortable. I would not choose any other shoe. They always run small, so buy a half size larger.

If you are on your feet all day and want the most comfortable shoe possible, Dansko is the answer. This shoe is excellently constructed and made with the best materials. Once you try them you will never buy any other brand. Zappos + Dansko = the best shoe buying experience possible.

What a great shoe. This shoe distributes my weight evenly through my foot and I am now pain free. I work in a restaurant and typically experienced a great deal of pain in my arches after working a busy shift. With the Dansko Clog my arch pain has been eliminated.

Don't believe manufacturer sizing recommendation. I read the product description and I read some reviews. The product description recommends sizing downward for open back shoes. I read another reviewer that said this is a mistake, and I agree. Order the size you would normally wear; it will save you the hassle of reordering and returning. On the other hand, Zappos made that part really easy.

I always wear Dansko clogs and these live up to the quality and comfort that Dansko provides. A bit snug at first but in time wear in nicely.Just be sure of your European size before ordering.

After searching for clogs locally to no avail, I found Zappos. I ordered a pair of Dansko's which arrived in 2 days (best shipping arrangement I have ever found) I wore them the first day, and literally found the best shoe that I've ever worn. I like them so much I ordered a second pair (different color) just 3 weeks later. I love Dansko. The entire purchasing process was the best that I have experienced. I will now only consider Zappos in the future.
