I bought these when I began to work in the ER and am on my feet at least 10 hours of my 12-hour shift. The Good: I've had no more plantar fasciitis pain or back pain since wearing these shoes. The Bad: The instep was initially tight, so I wore thinner socks. After a couple of months, my the instep loosened up and my feet started sliding too far forward and crunching my toes. The Ugly: I have lost 3 toenails in the four months I've had these shoes.

I don't understand Dansko's sizing. The size 42, which is my normal European size, says it's the equivalent of a US 11/5 to 12. Yet, my size 11 foot is too big for the shoe. My toes were squished up against the front. I'm really bummed because they are such cute clogs.

This is a great color but I am going to have to return them as they are huge! They are too long and the heel is too wide. I ordered a 37 and I am normally a 6½. Occasionally I am a 7 and I have fairly wide feet.

I wore Swedish wooden clogs until I discovered Danskos. Now I only wear Dasko clogs to ease the pain of severely arthritic big toes. The Dansko rocker bottom keeps my painful toes from bending and the padded insoles are more comfortable than wooden ones. Once again, I ordered my usual size and they fit perfectly. Love the slight sheen of pearlized brown clogs. I'm a happy Dansko wearer!

I love these shoes! I get so many compliments every time I wear them! I will not wear anything else to work. My feet don't hurt and I get the support I need. I preach these shoes because they have made a difference for me. I have MS and my feet and legs used to hurt every day; these shoes have really made a difference for me. I also wear them with jeans and they look and feel good!

Brands I'd also recommend: none.

I have arthritis, my feet usually hurt, and sometimes when I walk I guess I am limping, my friend, a therapist, is always watching how I walk, so she is asking me "What is wrong? You are limping." Not anymore I bought these shoes at Nordstrom and went to Europe for a month and walk 8-10 hours a day. That was all possible because of these shoes! I love them! In Madrid going through immigration everyone asked me where I bought them, I came back with the address and phone number from one of the immigration officers, she and another officer wants them! Lots of stories about these shoes in Italy, Spain, Portugal they are the best shoes ever!

How do I love thee? My last pair lasted four years of averaging 70-80 hours and 6 days a week...finally poked a hole in the toe just as I finished residency. As stylish as a super-comfortable work shoe can be. Hours on my feet never felt so good.

I love these shoes! Every pair always feels a little different and so I was hesitant about ordering online. When I first put them one one foot was slightly snugger than the other. I wore them for couple hours only, and they feel equally perfect and so comfortable. The patent material is so durable and easy to clean. I have had the black pair for a year and a half and wear them daily and they still are great!

I love these shoes! I work as a nurse on my feet for 12 hours a day. My feet are never fatigued. I am always complimented on the color and style of the shoes. Occasionally I even have to run in these. Best of all they are easy on and off!

These are fun, stylish and of course, comfortable Danskos. I teach first grade and am on my feet most of the day but my feet never hurt when I wear Danskos! They are definitely worth the money.

Awesome purple color! I Get tons of compliments everytime I wear them.These shoes run big so I always use insoles to tighten them up a bit because a size down is too small.

I have the pearlized purple patent Danskos and love them. I received so many compliments on them just the first day I wore them. I usually wear a 37 in Danskos but needed to order a size down in this style. I ordered these the day after Christmas and was shocked that they came in the mail the next day! I've noticed some shoes cost more at Zappos than in the stores, but these were the same price that I see them everywhere. I ordered through Zappos because they were the only place that had my size.

Very pretty--- but too heavy to walk in! The weight of this shoe slows me down. This is my 1st and probably my last pair of Dansko's.

Love these shoes. Since they're from Dansko, they're well-made and good for my feet. They're cute in that way Danish design has as of being cute. Plus, they're purple and patent leather!

I wear Dansko's all the time, but this feel larger than most? I kept them because I can wear a heavier sock with them with comfort.

I bought the purple in size 42 for my size 11 feet. They are so cute! But they run very small in this size so I have to return them for the black patent leather ones because they don't make the purple any bigger. Great shoes though!

from All over [army wife] now Texas

I am 72 yrs. old--ordered by my doctor to wear Danskos for my wounded feet 6 years ago--own 9 pair and won't wear anything else now. You wouldn't believe the multiple compliments I receive on the bright patent ones every time I wear them! I so appreciate the relief they bring--(not the compliments, but the shoes, chuckle). I do wish I could order a different size for my left foot than my swollen right foot, but that would be unreasonable. I am so grateful for the dr. that introduced me to this wonderful shoe!

I love these shoes! They are very comfortable, I have worn this brand for many years and just purchased the purple. I have received many compliments! I have wide feet and have high arches. I have no problem with these so these may be wide for someone with a narrower foot.

"Yes, these are Dansko clogs" is what I say every time I wear them as they do not fail to initiate that question. The slightly iridescent purple is a perfect color; others have called it street purple as it is not flashy and goes with everything. I did have to return the size 37, which I have worn for years as it is now a full size bigger. You will smile through winter when these are on your feet in the rain.

Dansko Professional Patent clogs are my favorite fall/winter shoes. I wear them from September through May. I have five pairs of Dansko clogs and three of them are patent. They are extremely comfortable right out of the box. The purple is a nice, deep color that goes with a lot of other colors. I wear them with jeans and skirts or dresses with tights.
