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.

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.

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!

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.

I am of retirement age, but recently took a retail position which keeps me on my feet for over 7 hours. I wear my Danskos and my feet and legs thank me at the end of the day. No aches or pains! Love Dansko and would recommend for anyone on their feet all day and those lucky enough not to be.

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.

Bought these before in the black patent leather. When I opened these I was wondering why they were 15 bucks more than the black patent leather they look the same to me am still wondering. Nonetheless, I really like the brown in the pic here it looks more wine in color but it is a true brown. I agree with the comment made by one of the people who wrote a review that the instep area does get loose over time and you will need to wear a heavier/thicker sock think that is because of the type of patent leather that is used in the manufacture of the shoes.

I wear a 37 in Birkenstocks, and a 41 in Danskos. These run very snug in the instep. They loosen a little over time, but not much. I am on my feet 12 hours every day, and these shoes are great for keeping my feet from hurting.

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 ordered 3 pairs of Dansko clogs. I have owned them for over 20 years but have never tried the new XP version. The XP version did not come in a chocolate patent (like the one they had several years ago). This one is a lighter brown, closer to a bronze brown in my opinion, not a true deep brown. Anyway - out of the 3 pairs of Danskos that arrived this one was definitely wider and didn't seem as well made as the XP version. They are going back because they are way too big and I really wanted a darker brown patent color.
