I have to have completely white shoes that completely cover my foot for work, and I am so happy that I discovered these shoes from Dansko! The style is similar to that of the Professional clogs, but the leather is a bit thinner all around, so it might not be quite as durable in the long run, and the top of the shoes have a tiny bit of elastic, so if the tough upper is too hard on your foot in the Professional, this might be a good alternative, especially if you have crazy high arches. I have been wearing them every day since I got them, now going on about two months straight, and they are so much better on my feet than my old sneakers were. I find that these run pretty small, and they feel a little smaller than my technically same-size Professionals. I would recommend going up at least one whole size, if not more. The arch support is pretty good, so if your feet are normal, these should be great for you; if your arches are high, they would probably be closer to medium support.

I bought these shoes because they were a sleeker look for the dansko. It took wearing these shoes for a full day to realize that that cute band going across the top was actually pressing down on my foot. Unfortunately that band is in exactly the wrong place for the shape of my foot. I thought that if I wore them long enough the shoe would give way and stretch a little for me. After months of trying and the bumps on my feet not going down I decided I was done. I wish that band had a little more elasticity to it, then it might not have hurt.

This shoe is totally adorable and makes my big feet look small and cute. One problem: It felt almost a full size smaller than it should have. I usually wear an 8.5-9 but I could barely get my foot in this shoe in a 39. I'm returning it for a 40. I really hope it fits. I intend to wear it with jeans or brown dress pants. It's a very versatile style.

Since I have narrow feet, I was a little surprised that these shoes fit so well. No heavy socks required as with the professionals. Very comfortable and arch support is great.

I've had the Dansko Solstice in black for a year and a half. While this is in general a comfy shoe, I do have two minor caveats--well, one not so minor. Here it is: the heel tapers slightly as it moves away from the foot bed, which on more than one occasion has caused my foot to topple a bit, resulting in a minor turned ankle. In lesser matters, the finish on the buttons wore off long before the rest of the shoe wore out; now the top of one of the buttons has popped off. It bugs me that a little decoration won't last the life of the shoe.

Awesome! I work standing on my feet most of the day and these shoes have proved to be great for my back; no pain at the end of 10 hours, no pain the following day. And they look great as well! I highly recommend them.

I broke my ankle in three places last summer and had to have surgery with pins and plates. I cannot wear the Professional because of where the side of the shoe hit the inside of my ankle. This shoe is great because of the way the side dips down instead of going straight across. I love this shoe. I bought a black pair and, since then, I have desperately been trying to find in burgundy and chocolate brown. Just ordered the brown. Can't wait to get them. This is the only shoe I wear to the office. So comfortable and the support is great!

These are absolutely my new favorite shoes! The arch support is just fabulous. I wish all my shoes had such great support. I work at a retirement home and do a lot of walking around, so these make all the walking much easier. My feet are not tired at the end of the day. I wear size 9 shoes, but ordered a size 40 (I got my feet fitted for Dansko at a local shoe store before ordering!) I absolutely love these shoes! I am definitely thinking about getting them in brown, too!

These shoes are the most comfortable shoes you will find. I was post bunion/hammertoe surgery when I bought these shoes and found they gave me the comfort and support that I needed to get me through all day. I even bought another pair in brown!

I love these shoes! I work in healthcare and these shoes are comfortable to work in all day long. I no longer have tired feet, knees, and legs at the end of the day. I did order a larger size than ordinary for me. I wear a 9½ normally and had to get a size 41 in these but they fit perfectly with just the right amount of room for my feet to move around comfortably. They are great shoes that I would highly recommend!

I finally believe all the hype about Dansko shoes. I never thought I would pay so much for shoes, but after I injured my back, I needed good, comfortable shoes for work. I invested in these Dansko Solstice shoes and have not regretted it for an instant! Sizing ran a little small. Normally I wear an 8.5 to 9.0. With these, I had to go with a 40 (9.5 to 10.0 if memory serves). They fit perfectly.

Unlike another few reviews I did not find these shoes to run big. I wear and 11 and the 10.5-11 is too small.

This is my first pair of Dansko's and they are extremely comfortable. I wear 8 to 8 1/2 normally and bought a 39 due to other reviews but I could easily have worn a 38.

Excellent shoe, immediately comfortable, did not put pressure on the top of the foot the way some other clogs do. Is holding its shape well after much much wear. I am a clog expert - trust me, this is a good one.

Brands I'd also recommend: there really isn't anything as good as Dansko

I am a big fan of Dansko professionals. This shoe is not as wide as the professional, so it is not a good fit for people like me with bunions.

Love these shoes. I took the advice of a review that I read to go up a size, and they are a perfect fit. This is the first time I have ordered shoes from Zappos, and I was impressed with their organization and how fast I got my shoes. I will be back! Thank you, Pat.

Great shoe, but be warned that the other reviewers are exactly right - your normal Dansko size will be too snug for comfort. I normally wear a 39 and it was too small, I have to go up to a 40. Keep that in mind when ordering these! Otherwise, the shoe looks great!

I like them in every way: they have great arch support, look great with jeans, pants, or casual skirts, and they fit nice and snug on my narrow foot. The only problem is that they are too short. I ordinarily order 39 (I'm an 8 1/2), but my toes are right up against the shoe. My advice is to order a size larger than usual, and if your foot is not narrow, these shoes may not be the ones for you.

I have tried several different styles of Dansko and want to find a pair to fit my 37 narrow foot, but so far I haven\'t. Cute shoe and comfortable until I walk and they slide up and down on my heel. I have foot pain and am always looking for cute comfy shoes. Birkenstock Bostons and Florida soft footbed are what I wear most of the time. I have found a couple of Naots that are narrow enough. As always Zappos is wonderful!

I'm a flight attendant and on my feet for hours in a day. These Danskos are so comfortable. The fit is true to size. I did get insoles for added cushion, but I can truly wear these shoes all day and my feet feel fine by the time I kick them off in my hotel room. They are not airport friendly, however. You must take them off to go through security. Otherwise, perfect for what I do.

Very disappointed that the button popped off after only 1 week, especially considering the cost of the shoe. Looks okay with jeans, but that's about it (unless you can wear scrubs or a chef's coat). If they were not so super comfortable, I would have returned them, but they are seriously the most comfortable shoe!
