I've had these for a month. I like 'em but they are stiffer than I was expecting for vegan shoes made of fabric. The stiffness reminds me of new leather. I've worn them with thin socks and have developed sore spots on the back of my ankle, took them off before those developed into blisters. I assume/hope they'll soften up with wear. I'm giving these 4 stars for comfort because they do slip right onto my foot and feel like they fit well, support my (high) arches.

The coating cracked within a month of wearing. Really comfortable and easy to break in. Wish they had held together.

They made it through one rainy season in Seattle (December - April), then I put them away until this year's rainy season. I pulled them out and the coating was cracked and breaking, leaving the shoes no longer waterproof.

Although I have worn Dansko clogs for many years, my size was not true with these coated volleys. They were too tight across the arches and insanely stiff in the heels. I am willing to try again with the next larger size.

These are a little tighter than other Danskos, as others have mentioned. The heel is not as loose as a traditional clog heel. I've been wearing them for a year -- I wear them a lot. After about a year, the coating cracked. If they were leather, they would probably be more durable, but I wanted a vegan shoe. For the price, I really expect them to last longer. I've had cheap synthetic shoes from Payless that lasted me years. Will be trying the Vegan Pro next, as it is a little more stylish and "cloggish."

I have a pair of the regular canvas Volleys and like them enough to want the coated version for fall and winter. These felt a little stiff at first, but broke in quickly. I have a high instep and find the Dansko Pro too tight in the top of the foot. The Volley is cut differently and is very comfortable in that area.

These shoes were very difficult to get on. A shoe horn was needed as the top of the shoe was very narrow and tight. Once the shoe was on it was comfortable but to long for a 6.5 size.

I loved the look of these things but I agree with the other review - they cracked and peeled within about two weeks and once that happens, they really look hideous.

Don't do it! Vegans and Dansko lovers beware. After one wear, the inside of the shoe is rippling and the outside appears to be going with it! I was ready to love these Danskos. So very sadly, they aren't up to the task. The coated canvas just isn't well made. They will not last. I am thusly dejected.

So it's been about 10 months since I started wearing these shoes and of those months, I only wore them for about 2 months total. I chose these because they seemed better quality than other dansko clogs. However, they are now starting to peel on the top and sides! I wear them only inside and outside on nice weather days. I'm really disappointed by the quality of these shoes as I thought they'd last me much longer. And now they are much cheaper than the amount i paid last fall. Avoid these! This is also the first experience I've had with Zappos and it's unfortunate and disappointing that it seems they have no return policy for poor quality shoes.

This is the first pair of Dansko that I have ever had a problem with. Twice actually, because they replaced the first pair and I'm having the same problem. I work in a busy restaurant and we are required to wear shoes that are slip resistant, and must say so on the bottom. I bought them because of the reinforced rubber around the stiching, I thought they'd be perfect for days in the kitchen. I did not have the problems that other reviewers mentioned, but I did lose all the bottom tread on the bottom of the shoe withen a month. Walking in them became dangerous because I would slid on evrything. All of the stars imprinted on the bottom were completely worn down. I contacted Dansko and they did replace the shoe, and it was also a very easy process. I also asked if there had been other customer complaints about this same problem and they said no, but when I got the new shoe, I had the same problem withen weeks. I have never had this problem with previous Danskos, but I would not recommended this shoe for restaurant wear.The non-slip tread does not hold up.

I bought these because I was looking for non-leather nursing shoe (Klogs brand was a real disappointment - uncomfortable and squeaky). When I first tried to put the shoe on, the top felt so snug that I was worried they wouldn't fit. Once my foot was all the way in, they felt great. In the end, I'm really glad I got these. After a 12 hour shift my feet aren't aching like they were before. One thing I didn't notice from the image is that the toe of the shoe is covered in rubber. Not what I was expecting but I really don't mind.

Cute and super comfortable...once you get it on your foot. I usually wear compression knee highs (don't want varicose veins) and cotton socks, but it was difficult getting my foot into this shoe with all that. So the opening is narrow, but once it's on, it's super comfy. Hopefully with time, it'll get easier to put on. And I have a pair of Dansko clogs that fit wonderfully, so I was surprised to find this. I'll keep it, and pray that it stays looking as shiny and nice as it does now. Thanks Zappos for the fast shipping and for sticking with me through my trial and errors, of finding the perfect nursing shoe. You rock!

PROS: Very cute style. Love the rounded toe shape. Sole is sturdy and gives some height. Waterproof. CONS: Sole is thick, solid and quite stiff. Heavy and loud due to the material of the sole (not a soft rubber). Would not be comfortable for everyday wear. Not great arch support. Glossy and shiny.

Buyer beware! I bought a pair of these last Fall. In only a few months time, the heels have worn and the canvas has started to crack and split apart at the place where the canvas meets the rubber toe. I'm a Dansko fan and own many pairs but found these to be a disappointment. I contacted Dansko and they agreed to replace them with another pair. Don't think the coated canvas is a good value for the price. I'm hoping that this was just a fluke and that the replacement pair will be better!

I have had several pairs of Danskos before, so I ordered these expecting the same comfort. I was disappointed with these shoes, I always wear a 40, and in these shoes that size was too tight and uncomfortable, especially around the back part of the ankle; it started to blister on one foot and after only one day of wear. The material is stiff and unforgiving when walking, so I returned them for a different style.

I bought these shoes about 4 months ago and loved them. They were very comfortable and looked great. However, about 3 months after having them, I noticed significant cracking of the outer covering around the shoe. They are currently peeling around the soles and where the crease develops by the toes. I am extremely disappointed in them - these were my first pair of Danskos and I had heard very positive things about them. I still intend to buy another pair of Danskos, but definitely not this type.

Perfect right out of the box! I have 20 or so pairs of Dansko, which given the fact that you're hard pressed to wear them out tells you I just have to have the new styles because they're just so cute. These are super cute!

Zappos' service was great and I find these much more comfortable by the end of a 12-14-hour workday (RN) than the original Dansko clogs. I’ve been on this quest for shoes that will take me through my workday with support and protection for a while and I have found that Alegrias work for me best. These shoes come in second so I alternate them from day to day.

This is my second pair of the coated canvas clogs. I have the black and now the frog pattern as well. I wear Danskos all the time and I had no break in period with these shoes. Wore them right out of the box for a 12 hour shift. Love that I can get non leather shoes that can be wiped down! My back and feet feel great at the end of the day. Great shoes!

Well, they are not as wide in the toe box as with the Professionals. At first I was not sure; however, after wearing them for a week I really like them. They are very light and comfy. The material looks different than on the screen, almost like a shellacked paper mache, it is cool and different.
