Yet another disappointment -- like almost all Dansko clogs these do not come in a narrow width. After all these years, there are only 3 clogs available -- black, brown and cordovan; I personally know at least 20 women with narrow feet who are shut out. What's the matter with this?

Love my Sanitas! Everyone wants to know what they are and where I got them! The big thing for me is comfort--I work in retail and literally stand all day. These work great for that! And they're stylish!! If you want these there is nothing I would say that should be holding you back. Except what color? What design?

I'm not a huge fan of the look (thus the 3 stars for style), but these clogs are comfy! I wear a 6-1/2 in heels and flats and a 7-1/2 running shoe. Size 37 works for me. The black patent is easy to care for compared to the cabrio and nubuck. Sanitas are hand-made in Europe vs the Chinese-made Danskos (since their split), which is why I chose Sanita.

This shoe fit much tighter than the Dansko M width size 39 that I normally wear. I had to return them because I was afraid they would not stretch out. Will go back to Dansko.

I wish I would have read the reviews before I ordered! A 37 is what I always wear but not in this shoe. It was way too small. So order a size bigger!

Not quite as bright of a pink as in the photos, but still cute. I'm glad I read the other reviews because I ordered a 38 (I've always been a 37 in european sizing) and it fits great.

I could not agree more with the person who previously reviewed these shoes! I read the review, but still ordered my usual European size. Big mistake! I cannot stress enough...if ordering these, order a size up! I have worn Danskos, but these shoes run small! Thanks to Zappos and their wonderful service, I was able to return these shoes quickly and reorder my appropriate size right away! I'm awaiting to receive my other pair tomorrow...just in time for my weekend shift! Yay! Because these shoes are super cute!

I loved these shoes and ordered a size up as other reviews suggested. Strangely the right shoe was half a size bigger than the left. You could actually tell just by looking at them that one was bigger. I returned and got a new pair and still had the same problem. I think there is a quality control issue with this batch of shoes. I'll wait a few months and try again.

I bought these instead of a pair of Danskos. I love the bright red color and couldn't find anything in the more familiar brand. Just pulled them out of the box and they seem great (but not much experience with them yet). I bought size 42 instead of my regular size 41 and they feel fine (sloppy, the way all clogs do). I don't find them narrow at all.

Sanita is a better quality shoe than Dansko. If you have a little wider foot, go with the wide width, wish I would have, they are a little tight, but okay with a nylon type sock. I have owned several pairs of both Dansko and Sanita. For everyday work shoe the professional is a great shoe.

I have a very narrow foot. I ordered this clog in a 39 narrow and it fits perfectly! I get compliments daily. I used to be loyal to Dansko but lately it seems as though the Dansko sizing has been off since 2008. I will now be ordering Sanitas.

After buying a pair in oil leather, I knew to order the wide width. Everybody switching from Dansko (used to be made by Sanita) to Sanita should know by now to go up in width. Once you know your proper Sanita size, you will see that the comfort you've come to love in this style is still there. I've worn this type of clog (had original Dansko clogs made by Sanita worn until they truly fell apart) for over 11 years, and it's become my everyday show. This is my second pair of Sanitas so I can alternate with the oil leather pair. The patent leather is a pretty change and the red is a lovely color, perfect with denim. I hope some Sanita rep reads the reviews regarding the width and so makes more styles available in wide. I'll buy more when that happens; I especially want a pair in Bordeaux Croco. Sanita, are you reading?

After reading a lot of comments about Sanita being smaller in size than Dansko and to my big surprise, it's not the case at all. I normally wear size 10.5 to 11W, size 42 was a perfect fit. They actually fit much better than a Dansko 42. I have 8 pairs of Danskos, and none of them are as comfortable as my Sanitas. I bought both pink and red.

These are great. They're attractive enough to wear to work, easy enough to slip on and go for errands. I can stand and walk all day comfortably. The heel is just right for boosting height while still being perfectly comfortable. The patent leather is sharp, the black looks great with my wardrobe. I hope I don't scuff or scratch it, because the rest of the shoe seems sturdy enough to last for years. The patent leather does show dust and water drops, so it takes a little maintenance to keep them shiny. Just paying attention to if they need a quick wipe with a cloth is all it takes, but it is slightly more than typical leather. I am a Sanita person; they fit my foot (the heel, especially) better than Dansko clogs. As for sizing, I ordered my usual 40 and a 41 after reading other reviews, and my normal size worked fine. Zappos' shipping and return policy made this no problem.

I am a chef and have tried so many shoes. But these Sanita patent are narrow and hold my arch well. I love them. Danskos are too wide. I highly recommend them if you have narrow feet and stand all day.

Great supportive hard soled shoes for those of us on our feet all day! These are better than Dansko's in my opinion because of their greater width. Only be warned that the sizing may vary some per style. Not sure why but I have found that in the 4 pairs that I own I had to shop around to get the same fit among them. I wish this variability could be changed so 4 stars for that. Just order both sizes and return one.

These are excellent for working long shifts and do not make your feet and legs hurt. They are great for nurses or anyone who is on their feet for long periods of time. They are also easy to slip off and on to give your feet some air.

I bought these shoes for my daughter when she landed a job where she would be on her feet several hours. They are absolutely perfect for her very low arches. They provide much support and keep her feet comfy. She loves how good they feel on her feet. They were a better fit than the Dansko shoe.

My job requires standing on my feet for 60/65 hours per week and I was having trouble with my knees and my hips. These shoes are fantastic! No more aches. They are super comfortable and very stylish, I get compliments on them every time that I wear them. I am very pleased with them!

I ordered 40 regular width but was shipped narrow. At least that's what the box says. I plan on keeping them. I would ignore all of the "feels smaller" ratings. I first ordered a size up and those were way too big.

As a nurse I have used Dansko shoes for over 10 years. The last pair I bought seem to be cheaply made (the stitching came out everywhere). I decided to try the Sanita brand instead. After 2 weeks they are comfortable and well made. I wore at 39 in Dansko and based on advice from other reviewers I bought the 40 and they do fit well.

These are red beauties! And I like the red, it is dark, not bright. But I paid attention to the reviews and ordered one size larger and am glad I did and this Sanita runs small. But they look good and think they will be comfy. Recommend these shoes!
