These shoes are awesome! I am a flight attendant and was looking for a better cruelty-free shoe and found it! As a 20 year vegan if you have foot odor with synthetic shoes try wearing toe socks and make sure you have enough zinc in your diet. Beautiful shoes that feel like slippers!

I was so excited to have a vegan Dansko clog option that I could wear to work! The canvas vegan Danskos just aren't an option when working on labor and delivery--I'm sure you can all imagine that L&D is sometimes a messy business and it's of utmost importance that the shoes I wear be washable and not able to absorb any of the aforementioned mess. The problem with these shoes is that the coating that makes them washable and won my heart also makes the shoes totally non-breathable. After wearing them for a few hours around the house, I was noticing the not-so-fresh smell of my own stinky feet--with the shoes still on! Let's not even talk about what happened when I took the shoes off. I don't usually have stinky feet, even after a long day of hiking, so I'm pretty sure it's the shoes. It's really disappointing, too, because these shoes fit and feel just like the wonderful, arch-supporting, knee-babying, gait-boosting leather Dansko clogs I've been wearing for years as I run from room to room trying to stay one step ahead of those wily little babies. Despite my desire to go leather-free in my life, these aren't the shoes that are going to make it happen. Better luck to the next person who tries them!

Awesome! Working twelve hour shifts you need support on your feet. Shoes are like your working tools. You rely in them. Arch is not too low or too high. The print is cute and lots of compliments to follow. True to size. Enjoy!

PROS: Very cute, LOVE the round toe shape. Excellent arch support. CONS: It's heavy and the sole is quite solid and stiff. Also it's somewhat loud due to the material the soles are made of--not a soft rubber. Size 36 (5.5-6) felt too big and wide, esp in heel. It's a very glossy, shiny shoe.

Got these in the white/multi-vine. Fit, size, comfort was great. But these were too dorky to wear - really hated how they looked on my feet. (Usually like Dansko funkier colors, but not this time.) Too bad, they were a great price.

I bought the Dansko white multi vine canvas with protective coating. I am a nurse and have worn Dansko for years. But these shoes did not live up to my expectations. I spilled a drop of grape juice on my shoe and before I could get to it to clean it, it had soaked in through the coating. It would not come clean, needless to say I have shoes that are very unsightly. I am very disappointed in these shoes.

These shoes are AMAZING. I bought them for a trade show where I would be on my feet for 8+ hours, three days in a row. They are so comfortable and looked benign and professional under my work pants. I would have died (or felt severely hobbled) with any other shoe. I will never wear heels to trade shows again - only my Danskos!

I love these shoes - so thankful to have a vegan Dansko option. I tried the Volley coated canvas & they were so tight, but these fit like other Danskos I have had in the past. I am a nursing instructor & am on my feet all day, & these are comfortable. My feet don't ever hurt, nor does my back, & I have never noticed an odor. I would love to see these in a nice brown color!

Great looking clog and is just as comfortable as the original Dansko Pro clogs. The coated canvas is a little shiny and c crease tends to develop across the bridge of the foot just before the toe after a few wearings, but this could perhaps be minimized with shoe trees or stiff cardboard in between wearings. Overall, great style and fit. So glad there are non-leather options out there.

I have been living in these since I bought them. They are warm, dry, comfortable, sturdy and supportive. The thick soles have traction that helps prevent slipping on my icy front steps and keeps my feet dry sloshing through slushy parking lots. They are so easy to clean-just wipe with a damp cloth. The low heel doesn't rub in the back and the rounded toe never pinches. They are not just all day comfy, they are 5am to 10pm comfy! Like other Dansko shoes I've bought in the past, I hope to have these for 10 years or more.

I have been looking for this shoe for a long time. I've seen a lot of vegan clogs, but most were canvas, which is not really my style. This is a great style and so comfortable. My only complaint is that after only a few wears, the material at the crease above where the toes meet the foot started to crack. It doesn't look too bad, but I hope that doesn't make these shoes look junky too quickly.

The sizing of this product was strange to me; couldn't even get my foot in a 39 (my normal), but 40 feels a bit loose. Dansko website says looseness on the heel is correct though so I've stuck with the 40s and been very pleased by the comfort so far. I always wear socks with them so haven't encountered a smell issue yet. The return process with Zappos was incredibly easy - and these were a gift! Easiest online return I've ever made.

Pros: non-leather, can wear to work, extremely comfy for my wide/flat feet. Cons: plastic coating turns whitish in the crease across the top, the heel doesn't contour at all from top to bottom so there is a gap at the ankle (at least it doesn't cause ankle blisters), kind of look like sparkly clown shoes because they are so shiny and the toe box is so big (which I am okay with), the price (for what they are they should be much much less expensive). I wish Dansko made the same leather shoe designs (like the Pro XP) using pleather, not coated canvas.

These Dansko clogs are very comfortable and supportive, and I love that they are vegan. But they do not wear well at all. The coating on the canvas cracked at the crease of the toes and instep. They look terrible! And they looked all beat up basically right away, after wearing them twice. I keep wearing them because they are so comfortable and supportive, but they look like old beater shoes. I can get away with them at work, but they sure are a disappointment and don't feel worth the money. I have other Dansko's that are vegetarian (wool) but not vegan and they held up very well. These are just a big disappointment. For this money, they really shouldn't look so trashed so soon.

Had shoes for 6 months and the leather across the toe where the shoe bends cracked. Maybe just a "bad" pair?

I like that I can get vegan professional-looking shoes to wear in the clinic that are not uncomfortable heels or cheap ballet flats. The arch support is excellent, and I feel better in a day on my feet with these than with sneakers. However, I have two main issues with these shoes: the durability of the coating, and the tightness of the top middle section. Granted, maybe my feet are just higher-arched than most, or maybe another size or width up would help. Most of the time it is not a problem (with thin socks), but at times it is uncomfortable. The main problem, though, is that coating. I work at a vet clinic, so kneeling happens a lot, which means the shoes crease near the toe, and the lower portion of the coating contacts the floor sometimes. Because of whatever they use for the coating, I have got permanent, noticeable creases in the shoes, as well as tearing of the coating by the toe. The coating seems to be thin, stiff plastic, which makes it brittle and causes it to become white with bending. It makes the shoes fairly unsightly, and was not the quality I was hoping for with this kind of shoe. This isn't something that occurred with a year or so of use, but a week.

These offer fantastic comfort for all day wear, but after a total of about 20 days of use (I wear them only for trade shows), the creases across the top are turning white. It looks like the black outer coating is wearing off in the areas the shoe bends while walking. I'm upset that such a pricey pair of shoes is no longer wearable for work.

I have worn the shoe possibly three times and the toe of the shoe is cracking. I have purchased multiple pairs of Dansko shoes and have never had any problems. I am reordering a different style.

I was very excited to see vegan Danskos. I am vegetarian and I find it very difficult to find non-leather shoes with arch support. However, these shoes have worn very poorly. The crease mentioned by other reviewers is very unsightly and I totally regret the purchase.

As a vegan with plantar fasciitis, I am always on the hunt for a good shoe. I was happy to find these vegan clogs. I am disappointed, however, that after wearing them for only about a month, the black coating is already cracked, with white showing through. I wore the Dansko Volley Coated Canvas shoe for a year before they started to crack. I was hoping the Vegan Pro would be better. For the cost, they should be. If the cracking is inevitable, Dansko should make the canvas underneath BLACK so it is not so unsightly. These are my go-to shoes for work, and I need them to not look shabby.

Very disappointed in this shoe! I went for the Vegan Pro black coated canvas for a change from my standard patent black. I am an RN and have worn Danskos and Sanitas for many years. The problem with this shoe started the very first day I wore them. White creases covered the top of the shoe at the natural bend where the shoe flexes with each step. They were very visible! They got worse with each wearing. By the end of the first month my shoes looked like they had been worn for 2 or 3 years; very beat up and unprofessional looking! I wrote to Dansko and they graciously agreed to replace the shoes with another pair of my choice.

Bought the white canvas vegans because the white leather Dansko shoes I normally buy were not available in my size. I am a nurse and I swear by Danskos for their comfort and durability. While these shoes are comfortable I am very disappointed in the quality. By the end of my very first 12 hour shift I began to see faint but visible yellow/brown discolorations appearing on the canvas part of both shoes. Initially, I thought maybe I spilled something on them. But the next day, and the next day, by then end of my shift these discolorations spread. I believe these discolorations are related to sweat and the color change is occurring from the inside as if the sweat is causing the color inside the shoe to bleed through the canvas. The color change is noticeable and looks terrible. They are no longer a professional white. I will never buy the white canvas in this style again.

Like many I was excited to be able to still wear Danskos and able to maintain my new vegan lifestyle; however, after the first day I wore these, the undyed white canvas underneath the black "shell" began to show through as the bend in the toes caused the fabric to crack. There is no way to redye the fabric, as it's under the protective coating, so now these shoes just look cheap and awkward when you're trying to look nice at work. I did not purchase these via Zappos.
