OMG! I love these! I have never been a Dansko fan. IN fact I never liked them before. Didn't particularly like their style or comfort. and believe me, I have tried as I am a nurse and som many nursing shoes are made by Dansko. Anyway, these are amazingly comfortable and stile are cute. They can be worn with jeans, slacks, leggings, skirts. I am thrilled about them and am keeping both of the ones I ordered in black suede and brown leather. Not the highest style with the lower heel, but I'm not missing it! I ordered my usual size and the fit is perfect

Weird placing of arch support, too low, too hard like concrete, makes them uncomfortable. What a shame because shape of foot base and everything everything else was perfect, and styling obviously too cute for words. But really, unwearable due to poorly placed and concrete hard extreme arch support.

I just bought these boots and I love them! Due to several foot and ankle problems, I have a hard time finding stylish shoes that are comfortable. Danskos never let me down!

I bought these shoes because as a doctor I wear Dansko's all the time, and I'm constantly looking for comfortable but cute shoes to wear in clinic. These fit the bill. After I put them on but before I even set my foot on the ground I could tell the arch support was great. Good support, comfortable after a full day on my feet, and true to size. I do get compliments on the style factor too. The leather is supple but appears durable (at least my feet didn't get soaked in a recent rainstorm). Obviously, as heels they are not quite as comfortable as Dansko clogs, but for a heeled boot...fantastic shoe.

Buyers remorse! This is the first time I've ordered a pair of Dansko shoes or boots. I usually wear a D width, and these boots feel fine if I wear them with thin socks. However, there is a spot on the left boot that rubs against my ankle and is very uncomfortable. I took the boots off before I developed a full-blown blister. There's also less padding than I prefer. The arch support is very good, but I think the boots would be a lot more comfortable if that hump in the insole were not there. Overall, I can't wear these boots for any extended length of time, and will never buy another pair of Danskos. I'm very disappointed. For the amount of money I spent, I expected much better.

Super cute, wanted them, but didn't have the usual Dansko support--felt very flimsy and wobbly. Also, had very weird uber-arched footbed. Disappointed that Dansko has their name on this one.

Brands I'd also recommend: Love most Dankso products. La Canadienne and Jambu have solid walking shoes.

These are great. Beautiful look under jeans and the perfect height to be in all day. Very comfortable as well. They run a bit big so go 1/2 size down.

These Dansko heels are more comfortable right out of the box than flats that I have owned, thanks to the instep support and sturdy design. I am a big girl and still walked all day in these boots without a hint of strain. But all that amazing comfort is hidden away in a gorgeous exterior. Rumpled leather booties should all be so cute! Style and comfort in perfect harmony. And worth the price. I have seriously never loved a pair of shoes more.

This Dansko is very stylish with the bonus of comfort. For the height of the heel, the comfort actually surprised me. They look great with shorter skirts and dresses when I wear tights. With jeans, dress pants and leggings I find them to be winners.

I'm totally happy with these shoes. I originally ordered a 39 (that's what size my Dansko clogs and a pair of cowboy-style boots I have are), but I sent them back for a 38. They fit nicely and are easy to wear, never feel like I'm going to slip. I've gotten several compliments on them - perfect for skirts, dresses, pants, or leggings. Dansko does it again!

I purchased these because I have had a great experience with Dansko closed-back clogs, and these did not disappoint! They are ultra comfortable to walk in, and look very fashionable. I love the wrinkly detail and the suede fabric. The gray is a great neutral color, and a nice change from black. I love wearing them with my jeans.

These are absolutely amazing! I am fourmonths post bunion surgery and was a little reluctant to try a heeled shoe (I am a die hard Sanita and Dansko clog wearer). That was not an issue with the Dansko Buffy! The toe box had ample room, lots of forefoot and outsole cushioning and excellent arch support. They are extremely comfortable and quite stable considering the heel is higher than I am used to wearing. They look great with trousers and jeans, elongates the leg line too! I am considering purchasing the brown color. I absolutely the Buffy and of course the super service from Zappos!

I wish I could buy a pair in every color and texture! Dansko footwear lines up your ankles, knees and hips and puts them in proper position. Amazing results. All day comfort for someone with neuromas, plantar fascia, bad knees and sore hips!

Cutest boots but the top is so tight they feel like snow boots and I can't walk in them. Wish they came in wide or I'd keep them. They have beautiful arch support, so disappointed my ankles are so large. I wear size 9 and the design makes my foot look like a size 7, very pretty.

These are amazing boots! I couldn't get my size on Zappos so I actually bought them at a local store (which I like to do, but if I can't find what I am looking for I always come to Zappos!). I was looking for a cute and comfortable boot. Because I have a heel spur I wear my Dansko clogs a lot but I needed something a bit more sophisticated and these definitely are!

Love this boot! I've always been a Dansko fan because I'm on my feet a lot. But the clogs are kind of clunky. Not this boot! Very cute and sexy (I got it in black suede.) And very comfortable.
