These shoes were comfortable from day one, but get even more comfortable after a week or two. This was my first pair of Danskos and I wasn't expecting the sole to be so stiff, but they are by far more comfortable than my Doc Martens, Easy Spirits, and Skechers Shape Ups. I wear these shoes at a stand-up desk on a concrete floor and feel great at the end of the day. I got the red ones and I get tons of compliments from stylish people who don't know that they're "comfort" shoes. I also like that they lace up because I have a high instep.

I have only had these shoes for about three months and they are already falling apart. I bought them for work, and they fit great and are pretty comfortable, but the canvas is ripping on either side of the rubber toe guard. I expected more from a company like Dansko. Not happy I spent the money on them.

I love my purchase of the Dansko Veda shoes! I have searched several styles and makes of work shoes and I must say- these are the best! I spend many hours a day on my feet standing and walking. Prior to my purchase, my feet were sore and the back of my legs where my knees are- ached after my long shift at work. These shoes provide me with excellent support to last all day! I am very satisfied with my purchase. I want to add that Zappos customer service is excellent and were very helpful with my purchase. The price was very reasonable also. I am very happy!

Great, supportive, stable shoes! And they're vegan! I have foot, knee, and back issues and have found these shoes to be my most comfortable pair. They're dressier than sneakers and can accommodate my custom orthoses.

Not for someone with narrow feet. Very cute and if it stayed on my foot, I could see how it would be comfortable.

I love these shoes as far as how cute they are, the way they fit, and the way they feel on your foot. On the downside, however, these little darlings, after about two and a half months, started ripping on both sides of the shoe, right at the widest part of your foot. It's definitely a design flaw with the shoes, as I bought two different pairs of these when I bought them, and wore them equally, every other day. I am a long-time-wearer of Dansko shoes and clogs, and I'm absolutely shocked that this happened to a Dansko brand product. Dansko is known for their superior quality, superior style and superior comfort. This particular shoe design really seems to be an anomaly. I've been buying Dansko clogs for close to 25 years, & have had pairs that have lasted and looked beautiful for close to 10 years. I will never stop buying Dansko products, but unless they fix this issue with this shoe, I won't buy any more this particular design.

I wore these shoes all over France, and all aound town. They are cute enough that you can wear them in the streets of Europe and feel almost chic. They are very comfortable, and I often have trouble with shoes. They have worn well, and only after 4 years is the canvas beginning to tear. I will buy another pair.

These are so much cuter than regular tennis shoes. I have wide feet and a high instep and they fit well - typical of Dansko fit.

Very comfortable shoe. Surprisingly light. The slight platform really are a plus as long as you're not walking on uneven surfaces like trails or cobblestone. They were not fashionable at all, however.

I use these shoes for work. I am a recovery room nurse and am on my feet a good part of the day. This is my second pair of these shoes, just a different color. I have use them on vacation in the streets of NYC. My feet never hurt and I got a few compliments about them.

I have a wide foot but narrow heel, bunions, heel spur, and high arch. These shoes have become my favorite go-to shoes. I am a teacher on my feet all day, but I never feel the spur problems in these shoes (I wear them with my own orthotic inserts); in fact, I am more energized in these shoes than in tennis shoes. Together with my orthotic insert, these shoes provide me with the best arch support of all my shoes. I have marked these shoes as "wider than marked" because these are listed as "regular" width, yet they accommodate my wide foot beautifully. My sole complaint echoes that of another reviewer: after a few months, the canvas has given away right at the bunion point. I am ordering another pair because of comfort, but I am unhappy based on "shoe life." We will see if the 2nd pair exhibits the same problem. On another note, I find that the style of these shoes is better than I expected; they don't stand out so much as "sensible shoes" and instead fade nicely into the background.

These were nice and comfortable when they arrived. Like I expect from Dansko. I have had them over a year and now notice that the canvas at all four places where the toe cap ends have ripped. It is in the weak point of the shoes. But, for the price, they are good. Just keep an eye on them.

So far I really like these shoes. They're a little heavy maybe, but otherwise really good. I love the height of the platform and the styling is just what I wanted... not too casual, not too sporty. They feel pretty durable, too. I have pretty skinny ankles/feet, and needed a little cushion in the back of the heel to stop the shoe edge from rubbing my ankle (I'm pretty sensitive), but with that adjustment, these are super comfy. Totally recommend them.

Love these shoes! They look super cute on my size 9.5 feet. I was worried they would make my feet look huge, but another reviewer posted that she was worried about the same thing and they looked great so I took a chance. Sometimes shoes that are cute in a size 7 aren't so cute in larger sizes. These look great. Also, I have a stand up desk at work and the Veda's have great cushion for standing all day. They were a little stiff at first for long walks but seem to have broken in just fine. I get tons of compliments on them. I would definitely buy a pair in a different color.

I have been wearing the Dansko professional size 41N for years. I started working in an office environment and wanted something lighter and less clunky. The Veda fits well and the width is perfect with the laces. I wear a substantial innersole for additional even though the support is quite good. Nice quiet sole and wonderfully comfortable for all day/everyday wear. The canvas wore out and looked beat after a year of steady wear, I just bought a new pair. I love them.

The shoe looked great but it rose too high at the ankle and the heel, to be comfortable for me. It was also way too snug with socks on, but if I ordered the next size up, I am sure the top of the shoe would dimple at the toes. Sorry to have to return it.

These shoes are very comfortable but be warned, if you wear them daily and are on your feet all day they are going to break down quickly. A coworker of mine has the same pair and both of ours broke down within 3 months. It might be a design flaw, the sides near the toe box tear.

I work at a very busy restaurant where spills are a common and a huge hazard. After many slips and slides I decided I need a pair of slip resistant shoes. After trying two brands with unhappy results, I decided to try Dansko. What a wonderful difference, comfortable, study and not bad to look at! They're great on the job and off. I would recommend these shoes for anyone who is on the feet for an extended period of time.

I had high hopes for these shoes, but am a bit disappointed. I needed comfortable shoes for being on my feet all day, and while they are comfortable, I didn't feel they lived up to all of the great reviews. They are very cute shoes though and I do get a lot of compliments on them, so there is that.

I bought these shoes about seven months ago, because I work full-time in a busy coffee shop. Overall my experience has been very disappointing. First, breaking in the shoes took a REALLY long time. Although they fit me correctly, the canvas was very stiff and created a lot of friction through my socks. I got bad blisters and was definitely in pain by the end of each work day. It took me a good six weeks to really get to a point where they actually felt somewhat broken in. Secondly, I can confirm what other reviewers have said here: After just a few months, the canvas already started separating from the rubber toe. I didn't do anything crazy with them, I just walked a whole lot. Apparently that's all it takes. Finally, I definitely had issues with the clog-style shoe in general. This is my first experience wearing a pair of clogs in a working environment, but something about having my heels slightly elevated caused a lot of pain in my hips. I eventually had to switch to different shoes, which fixed the problem almost immediately.

I have had plantar fasciitis for 7 years now, and my feet are getting better because I wore an orthotic insert for the first five years all the time. Now that my feet are better, I am trying some shoes without the orthotic to see how it goes. This were the first shoes I wore without the orthotic and they feel great. I don't have to wear clunky granny shoes anymore and am very happy. This shoe reminds me of the Keds tennies we wore back in the 60s and 70s, with that wide toe cap, so they have this innocence about them which is very appealing - yet they have this big arch and heel which lend them an air of mod. I am a teacher and I wear these to work three out five days (I bought them in four colors and am holding myself back from buying every single color they come in) and I get lots of compliments on them. Perfect combination of fun, comfort, style, and casual professionalism. My feet are also wide and small (size 37) so that complicates matters -- so you can imagine how thrilled I am to find something that works for me. Love the Veda!

I buy Dansko Veda shoes for their soles. The upper is a little stiff (especially the canvas ones) but the shoe is so solid without feeling heavy that I swear by them as commuter shoes.

Wonderful and stylish. I have had these shoes for a month and love them. I am an X-ray Tech in a busy clinic, where I am on my feet all day moving around. My feet/ankles used to hurt by the end of the day in my tennis shoes, but not with my Dansko Vedas! I love how they are stylish and comfortable. The arch support is just right for me (having low arches). I would highly recommend the shoes to anyone.
