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.

These shoes were comfortable from the first time I put them on. I wear them on my daily walks and can keep them on all day. With other walking sneakers I was not able to wear them more than a couple of hours. These are just great. Plus, they look good.

I really love these shoes. Or maybe I should say "loved." I purchased them in May, wore them a decent but not crazy amount, and by October I found a hole where the rubber of the toe meets the canvas. I am used to Dansko shoes lasting, so I was shocked. Once they fix these, they will be great.

I LOVE these shoes--and I SUPER-love the suede ones. Very few shoes fit me correctly. I have a very high arch and little natural padding on the bottom of my feet. Dansko clogs are the only shoes that fit me without my orthotic, so I decided to try the Veda. First I got the canvas Vedas and am happy with them. Very comfortable and I can walk for long periods of time in them. But then I got the suede ones and they're even better-they're softer inside, and more cushioned than the canvas. I'm very active, and can be on my feet all day in them very comfortably. I've now got two pairs in canvas and two pair in suede, and had no problems with having one shoe of the pair fit better than the other, as often happens with the clogs. The suede ones are nice enough to be worn when I don't want a sneaker look, or want them to look a little more dressed up. They look good with just about anything. Great shoes, great price! Only complaint--white rubber on the canvas gets dirty and I can't clean them. Suede has dark rubber where the white would be, so they are truly PERFECT in every way! The brown suede is an especially beautiful color.

Recently attended a convention & forgot to bring comfy shoes. The boots I had worn, initially were hurting my feet so bad! Picked up the Veda at the local mall & they saved my feet. Thank you Dansko for such wonderfully comfortable shoes!

These shoes turn heads! Women, young and old, are always asking me where I got them and what brand they are. I've never worn Dansko before; I was afraid they'd be heavy and uncomfortable...they are neither. Because these shoes tie, they work for my orthotics. I have the red, and now I'm trying to decide which other color to buy.

These shoes fit well. Sometimes I have an issue with Danskos clogs because the top of my foot is high so it's really tight in that area, but these are great since they lace up.

I ordered the Veda "tennis shoe" in the navy canvas. I wanted something to wear on our recent trip to Disney World that would give me the comfort and support of a Dansko. I was not disappointed. I wore these shoes right out of the box and walked all over the Disney World Resort and Parks with no discomfort. Since we were there on Leap Day and they were open 24 hours we did extra time walking that day. I love the casual look of this shoe with capris or pants but have also worn them to work, I teach school. I just purchased some for my daughers in fun colors and plan to add to my Dansko collection.

I love Dankos, and these may be my favorite yet. The sneakers are stylish looking, as are many similar styles, but the real benefit is it in comfort. I have never had canvas sneakers with awesome arch support. These are comfortable all day long from the first wear. Even my back feels great. My Euro size is between 41 or 42. I went with the 42, and they are perfect. I think I am going to order them in another color... or maybe even two more!

Really cute and comfy. Danskos often run too wide for me to wear, but with the laces, they fit perfectly.

This is a really cute and comfortable sneaker! I can never find comfortable canvas shoes, so I was happy to find Dansko makes these! My husband and daughters (ages 10 and 12) all thought they were very cute, too. The girls wanted a pair for themselves!

I was looking for a stylish shoe that I could wear on short bike rides. These are perfect for what I was looking for, I love these shoes. They are comfortable and my most favorite pairs of shoes. I also get a lot of compliments which is always fun.

Danskos are the only shoes I wear. When I saw this one I was hooked. It is stylish, creates conversations, and is so comfortable. I will be wearing these shoes on my Alaska Cruise and excursions this May. I wear them now all the time. Dansko shoes last and last forever.

I wanted a comfortable pair of shoes to wear while I was in Disney World on a school field trip, and these were perfect. I didn't have to break them in. I wore them for two consecutive days where I entered the park at 9 A.M.and didn't leave until 8 P.M. I love them! I also received compliments on them from my students.

Brands I'd also recommend: I just love Danskos.

These shoes are the best of both worlds - they feel like a Dansko, but look like sneaks. As with dansko clogs, allow some extra room in the heel. I'm a size 7 - 7.5 and wear a 38 in Dansko's. I love mine!

I have only had these shoes for a few days, but so far they are the most comfortable work shoes that I have ever had. I work as a waitress so I am on my feet all night and these shoes provide great support. They have a very nice arch and a cushioned yet super supportive sole. I have extremely narrow feet and these feel great but I think they would for wider feet too. As an added bonus they even look cute!

This shoe is great for those who need a comfortable shoe for walking and standing. It has a thick canvas which is very durable. It has some what of a platform heel not for those without balance but makes up for it fairly well with such a good fit to your foot. I hear of the clogs you can break them in, not so sure about these.

This is about my ninth pair of Danskos and my current favorite. They are "Dansko comfortable" and cute and unique! Of course the fact that they are my favorite color, purple, doesn't hurt. I plan to take them to Paris next month as my main walking shoe.

Yeah, so I'm 58 and I like really comfortable shoes. I have bad arches, a tendency to plantar fasciitis, and a very high instep. I've pretty much given up on my Dansko Pros, even the wide ones, because of the instep and the weight of the clog. These, however, allow for the high instep, are lighter than the Pros, have great arch support, and look dandy with jeans. My students, deciding they were a cross between sneakers and clogs, have dubbed them "Snogs". Whatever. A good purchase.
