I have had these shoes for about 10 months now and love them. I wear them every day and they still look great. Most important - they have cured my aching feet and knees. I have bunions and these shoes have been heaven sent. I chose Sanita over Dansko because Sanita is still made in Europe. When Dansko broke off on its own they started making their shoes in China.

I am very disappointed with these shoes. I was told that they are the same quality as Dansko, but,after only a year, the covering is coming off of the heels. The sole material is also coming apart and the toe box is losing its shape. I am unhappy that I have to replace them already.

Better than Danskos because they don't squeak, and they're the original makers. Otherwise this are nicely colored, sturdy, and great arch support. A little narrow around the toes. They'll take some breaking in for the pinky toes and the back of my heel/achilles tendon.

I love these shoes! I'm on my feet 11 hours a day, and my feet don't even know it. The Dansko pair I have are just as comfortable, but in the Sanita pair I don't feel as if I'm going to kick a shoe off when I'm running full speed.

I love these shoes! They fit better than the Dansko brand, a little more snug. I'm on concrete floors for 5 to 7 hours a day and my feet feel great at the end. Would highly recommend!

I love the color of this shoe! Unfortunately, this has to be sent back because it's way too small. I wear a size 9 and ordered a 39 as recommended by customer service and the sizing chart. Too bad, 'cause it's a beauty (less red than the picture)!

I have several pair of Sanitas, and I do recommend this shoe. However, this pair will be going back. The right shoe was definitely smaller than the left. It was tight and did not sit right on my foot. I love the look... really wish they had fit like the rest of my Sanita clogs.

I wear a 42 in the womens Dansko professional black cabrio and ordered the same size in Sanita professional because they had the brown color I was searching for. I wear a womens size 11 in all my tennis and running shoes and am a B width. The Sanita does run more snug but fit my feet perfectly. I love the comfort and look under bootcut jeans and dress pants for work. I have had many positive comments from women wearing the same clogs, saying they thought they looked great on me and that more men should try these shoes. Wish I could get away with wearing more of the great patent patterns like the leopard print and tooled styles of the professional. Between these 2 pairs of clogs and a brown and black pair of Franco Sarto Boccas this guy is ready to take on the day in comfort and style.

I have worn Danskos for 15 years and after reading that the footbed was made by Sanita I decided to buy these. My feet are as happy as they ever were with the original Dansko. These will always be in my closet!

This is the 3rd pair of Sanita clogs I've bought. They have the same support as the Dansko but are slightly narrower, so I think they are truer to size. The last Danskos I bought I had to give away because they slid around on my feet and gave me blisters unless I wore very thick socks with them.

I love this clog! It is extremely comfortable, and my feet feel great when I wear them. I use a cane for mobility, and the wide sole of the shoe helps my balance feel very secure even though it is a higher shoe than the Birkenstocks I normally wear. I also especially love the color; the brushed brown is very rich-looking!

Brands I'd also recommend: Dansko - I have a pair of each's clogs and I cannot tell the difference..

The upper part of the shoe is quite stiff and needs time for breaking in. But my issue is with the heel. Although walking on a carpeted floor is okay, it is not great on a concrete slab floor when you are walking and on your feet for hours. There is no cushion because the heel is so hard when you walk that it effects your legs and back. So I would not recommend to anyone with back or leg issues. Or working in retail.

Brands I'd also recommend: don't know...still searching for the right shoe.

Right foot was smaller than the left and the instep wasn't high enough. Beautiful shoe but just didn't fit well unfortunately.

I ordered these along with 2 pairs of Dansko to compare fit and these won. I have worn both brands for 20 years and Sanita just has a better, more consistent fit. One pair of the Dansko were huge and the other had one shoe much larger than the other. I also like that Sanita are made in Europe.

I expected to hate these. I spent so many hours researching and reading reviews before forking out the cash to buy these. They are not my style, really. I am not a clog girl. I also thought that I would hate - truly hate - the fact that they slip a little on the heel (as they are supposed to), but surprisingly, it feels totally natural. They are so comfortable that I do not want to take them off. I have been wearing out my good quality street shoes (Borns) at work (I work in the restaurant industry), but they were not slip resistant, and despite the good quality, I could tell that they could not take the beating, and they were not slip-resistant, which I need for work. These shoes are light, super comfortable, and sturdy. And, they are not at all bad-looking. Kind of cute, actually. They feel completely true to size I wear a 6, which I ordered, and they fit perfectly. That said, they feel interestingly snug on the top of the left foot - the instep - and I have low insteps. So if you have a really high instep perhaps they will feel snug on you. I can tell that it will not be a problem after a few wearings. I picked these after visiting the doctor, who was wearing them. She had been wearing hers for five years, and while they showed some obvious wear, she swore by them. Overall, I love these. It is totally worth the investment.

I have really difficult feet -- I have permanent nerve damage on my right foot that has resulted in deformed toes and serious pain when I walk. I have a large bunion on my left foot that needs surgery, but that has to wait until after two family weddings this summer. These shoes are amazing. Both of my feet are happy!

These are the most comfortable shoes ever. I tried Dansko and they did not fit right and had to return. Decided to give Sanita a try. I ordered the size I normally wear, 9-9.5, wore them around the house for a few weeks to make sure they fit. A little snug around the toes at first, but not lengthwise(!) and of course, the back heel should flip up and down. There is an adjustment period...make sure they fit right and browse a clog-fitting guide. After feeling confident they fit, I finally ventured out in the world with them. They are so comfortable, I never want to take them off. And I never have heel/foot pain anymore after wearing flip-flops for too many years. I just ordered a second pair in a different color.

Wonderful! I have plantar fasciitis and heel spurs and my feet have been hurting horribly for over a year. I am a legal secretary and am up and down a lot during the day (walking on marble floors). There have been some days where I thought I was going to cry because my feet hurt so badly. I've tried wearing other expense shoes and nothing has helped until now. I highly recommend Sanita if you're having a lot of foot pain. They're a lifesaver. I wear a size U.S. 5 and the size 35 fits very well.

Love these clogs. I have narrow feet with high arches and they fit well. Podiatrist recommended clogs to help heal Achilles tendinitis, and they are providing the support my tendon needs. They fit better than the Dansko's did.

I love Sanita clogs. Since they changed manufacturers, Dansko no longer fit me as well as Sanita. As they say, these are the original. These clogs saved my feet my last few years of teaching. I still wear them most of the time in the winter.

Finally! A supportive shoe that fits! I have tried numerous clogs but they we all too wide and I couldn't keep them on my feet. Love the Sanita. I will be purchasing more.

I love the finish and color on these clogs. I love the arch support also. They look great for everyday or church. The soles are quite harder than I am used to, and I'm still getting used to that after wearing them for about a month. But I don't really notice that until the end of the day, so overall I'm very pleased with these shoes. They seem so sturdy I think they'll last a long, long time. Zappos was great because I ordered many pairs to try on at home before settling on one. I ended up going with the "Narrow" width (which you can choose specifically on Zappos, another plus) in size 40 and found that to be the best fit for my 8.5-9 US size feet. I recommend trying on these shoes and walking around the house in them for awhile before deciding, I found slight differences in shoes that were the same size--I think because they're handmade.

Being in the hospital profession, I was a Dansko wearer for 6 years, but never felt they lived up to their hype. When one of my pairs broke, I did research and found out about Sanita and bought this pair. The fit, finish, and small details in design excel far beyond Danskos. If you are considering Dansko, try this brand also. Sanita used to make all Dansko's shoes before Dansko decided to spin off and manufacture out of China, where their quality went downhill, and is now spotty at best. The best that I can say is that the comfortability I was looking for in Dansko, I found in Sanita. Sizing was proper too, as I always felt Dansko 1/4 to 1/2 size too big.

I like Sanita clogs a lot. Our dog likes them, too, unfortunately. This is my first pair that's not either suede or suede-like. They're as comfortable as the others I've had, and shinier but not patent-leather glossy. The blue is nice -- definitely blue, but sort of subtle except in bright light. I have a bunion (grr) on one foot, so sizing is sometimes a problem, but these are fine. I've worn them for an all-day, all-evening workshop, and although I was plenty tired, my feet were not. I'm a runner and prone to tendinitis in my ankle, and the clogs seem to be okay for that, too - don't know that they improve it, but they don't seem to make it worse.

I love these shoes! I wear them all the time and they are so comfortable. In fact, recently I got caught without a car and had to walk about four miles home, and was so thankful that I had my Sanitas. I walk fast, and my feet felt great after my walk. I had Danskos in the past when Sanita and Dankso were one company.
