As I walk 8 hours a day, I need something that would support both leg and back (and of cause, my feet). This shoe does that. I have no fatigue what so ever in my feet after 8 hours so I really recommend this shoe to anyone who first look at their comfort than fashion.

I bought these shoes for the beautiful iridescent patent color, but unfortunately, I have to return them. I have a perfect size 8 1/2 foot and these only come in whole sizes. While the company advises people to go up one size, my feet were sloshing around inside the shoes even with thick socks. The slip-on, low-back design makes them harder to keep on my feet. I can tell that they would be very comfortable shoes if my feet were only just a little smaller or a little bigger. I've had this problem with other shoes that only come in whole sizes. So if you wear a half-size this is something to keep in mind. What a pity. I hate to return such beautiful shoes. Dansko, please make your shoes in half sizes too!

Typical Dansko clog, but unusual color! Fits fine, but due to my foot problems I had to stretch the right shoe a bit; if you haven’t worn Dansko clogs, you may find them a bit heavy and stiff. Good arch support and good support in general. I am still getting used to wearing clogs but find them comfortable when I do.

My niece in Iowa orders from Zappo\'s quite a bit. She picked out a pair of shoes she wanted and sent me the link. I placed the order at 1 p.m. during a weekday, online, in Ohio, put the charge on my credit card, paid no shipping, and was amazed to track it on the UPS tracker and see it delivered the following morning to her apartment at 10:00 a.m. I was quite impressed with the speedy delivery, and my niece loves her Dansko shoes to go with her nursing uniform.

I really love these shoes. The colors are awesome. I always get tons of compliments on them. They are very comfortable. I stand all day in my job. I am also rushing around a lot so they have become my favorite shoes. I am going to buy my mother-in-law a pair.

So disappointed! I love my one pair of Dansko clogs. I only have one pair, because I have to have a narrow clog and they are so limited in their selection. I thought I'd try the regular width, so first I tried a 40 ( I usually wear the Pro in 40 narrow). The 40 was way too big, so I ordered a 39 hoping that would do the trick. It was too small, so truly I must have the 40 narrow. I wish that Dansko would bring out more colors in the narrow! I did love the claret patent and the blue python patent, but sadly neither of those fun colors fit me. I do love Danskos though!

This is my first closed back Danskos, I have always worn their clogs, so I was not sure if I would like them. I love them! I ordered the petrol and gets compliments almost every day at work. As a nursing supervisor, I am on my feet 12-14 hours a day and have plantar fasciitis. The support they offer is wonderful. I will be ordering myself another pair (petrol) as they are unique and will be great to wear with jeans. Thank you Zappos for your great customer service!

My third pair of Danskos - love them all! Super comfortable, super supportive (I’ve been suffering from plantar fasciitis for a couple of years, but my feet aren’t sore at the end of a day with these on), and I get lots of compliments on the patent leather pair.

This is my second pair of Dansko. They are great shoes for work. The difference is that at the end of the day walking and working in these shoes, there is no associated back or feet pain. The shoes provide the necessary support for nurse’s feet.

I love my Dankos. They were a perfect fit, I followed the sizing chart and ordered size 38 - a seven and a half is my true size. I can wear a thick or thin sock, the large toe box is what I need and I will order more!

If love were a shoe, it would be a Dansko clog. These are the most comfortable, wonderful shoes ever made. Comfortable and cute--these look great with jeans, dress pants, and skirts. I feel a little like Minnie Mouse wearing these with skirts, but it is worth it. I wish I could wear these everyday!

I have a really high instep, which is great for wearing heels, but bad for flats. The minute I put these on, my feet fell in love. The arch support is incredible! I plan on walking these babies all over Paris. The navy patent is a true navy (ie: won't come across as black) and looks awesome on. It looks fairly stylish because of the shine and unusual color.

Amazing shoe!!! Right from the first wearing you forget you have new shoes on. I wear a 9 and purchased the 8.5-9 size. I would not go to the bigger choice. I am on my feet standing all day and my feet never ache in these shoes. Love them.

So Comfortable - As a teacher, I am on my feet all day. These are such comfortable shoes, and even ten year-old boys think they look cool! The one problem is that after a couple of weeks the coloring has already worn off of the staples.

I LOVE these shoes. Been a LONG time comin’ that I finally purchased a pair of Danskos (cost). But I am VERY happy with the fit, look, and longevity. “Rocker” heel and toes. They are true to my foot in every way... width, length, and arch. I am VERY pleased. And Kudos to Zappos for making them available with all the exchange options. Beats shopping the brick and mortar stores. P.S. They are so very cute in a "Wizard of OZ" sort of way!!!

These shoes are some of the best I have ever bought. The day they arrived I put them on and forgot about them, ran up and down stairs at work all day, got home and remembered my shoes had never been worn and thought... wow, these are brand new shoes and my feet feel wonderful. I would highly recommend them to anyone, but especially for people like me who have flat, weak feet. I wear custom orthotics and don’t even need them in these shoes. This color red makes people say they look like candy... and they are sweet for your feet!

I got this shoe in black patent leather. This style is not the greatest, but they are worth it for the comfort! The arch support is great because I have very flat feet and it takes the pressure off the sore parts of my foot. The shiny exterior makes it appropriate for dressier outfits. I’m still breaking mine in because the leather is a little stiff, but from the previous reviews, I expect that to go away soon.

I absolutely love my Dansko professional patent leather shoes! Being in the medical field, these shoes make standing on your feet all day much more comfortable. Plus they’re easy to wipe off and clean. I have been shopping on Zappos for years because they simply have awesome service! You order and get your items 1-2 days later, how can you beat that?!

My kitchen floors are tile and I initially bought these shoes to wear solely while I worked in the kitchen... love them. While I have flattened arches, I still would wear a variety of footwear to work, but wanted something to pamper my feet at home. Well, about 2 weeks after receiving the red patent, I purchased 2 more pairs FOR WORK! I am a professional and typically wear dress slacks and while these may not be as sexy as slingbacks… they are the best investment in my feet I have ever made! I slip off my "work" Dansko as soon as I get home, and then put on my "home " pair.

Order up! I had to go through to incorrect sizes to finally receive the shoe that fit my foot. I also added an orthotic and they're great! I get compliments on them almost every time I wear them. Great color!

These 'Petrol Patent' Danskos have the most unique look - in person they aren't quite as shiny as the photo indicates (which I like) and have a great color sheen. I wear a standard size 8, and the size 38 fits perfectly. In other leathers of the Dansko Professionals I've had to get 39's and still had to get them professionally stretched across the vamp - in this case I didn't, they fit perfectly right out of the box.

These are fun! I have more pairs than any one person should have - but I am a slave to them because they keep my heels pain free- arches supported & legs non-aching! Nurses know-these are the best for long hours! The patent is great for clean-up in a hospital situation! I get many comments on my navy shoes! I’m thinking of the Petrol Patent next! Zappos is great-super fast ship!
