I love these shoes. I have a narrow foot, and am so happy Dansko finally put an adjustable strap across the toe box so I can now wear one of their sandals! I have waited for several years. In the winter I wear professional clog narrow. Thanks Dansko!

This is a very nice shoe... however the footbed is smaller than all my other Danskos that are the same size. Had to return it.

I absolutely love these shoes! I have such problems with my feet (surgeries, broken bones, high arches that can never get enough support, you get the idea) that I can very rarely find shoes that my feet do not hurt in after wearing for just a short while. These are like heaven. They provide perfect support in all the right areas. And even though they have good heels, it does not feel as though you are walking in heels. They are more comfortable than most flat shoes, even those with good support. I think I will order another pair. I usually buy one size smaller than my regular shoe size when buying Dansko open toe sandals, or they tend to run too big for me.

Incredibly comfortable straight from the box, no issues at all after wearing while running errands for 2+ hours. Previous posters are right about it running a little small. Normally size 41 Danskos are roomy on me, but with these my big toe goes straight to end. Able to prevent slippage by adjusting the straps but if I order again (I might, as I like them that much) I would go up a size. Don't know if they are as supportive as regular Dansko clogs b/c of the cushy insole. As for style, I wouldn't exactly call them stylish but they are relatively non-geriatric which is as much as I could hope for with my various foot problems.

This shoe is very comfortable with a cushiony sole and soft lining. I like the gray lining as it will show dirt less than the tan one on many Danskos. Like so many Danskos this was comfortable, as if custom made for me, right out of the box. The adjustable straps mean I don't have to worry about them stretching out. They stay securely on even without a heel strap. Love!

These were too narrow for me, but I'm sure it's not the shoe, as I have a very high arch. Oh well, they sure looked good.

I ordered these sandals on line from Zappos at 8:00PM last night and they were on my door step at 4:00PM today! Zappos service is unreal - my husband thought the factory was next door! Anyway, these sandals are the most light weight and comfortable shoes I've had on in a long time! The arch support is excellent and I feel like I'm walking on air in these shoes!

I ended up having to size up from my usual 41 to a 42 in this shoe. The 41 just fit my right foot. My big toe would go over the edge a bit, and I hate that. The left foot was okay. 42s fit better, although I had tighten the first straps to the last hole. They are amazngly comfortable and look so great on! I want them in every color. I purchased the ocean, which is a lovely medium blue shade. I ordered the sand dollar from another store because zappos is out of 42s. Frankly I would also love the black and orange colors! I live in Dansko clogs all winter, and now I can enjoy the same unsurpassed comfort all summer, too! Highly recommend.

I wore these shoes to Disney. I had plantar fasciitis and I fear its return. These shoes were very comfortable but I did get a blister from a top strap after about 8 hours on my feet. I'll take a blister over plantar fasciitis any day!

Thank you Dansko for making an adjustable sandal! I live in my Dansko clogs and have searched high and low to find a comfortable sandal for my very narrow feet. These are the best! I might buy them in every color! I did have to size up. I usually wear a 40 and when I tried these on my big toe hung over the edge. A 41 was perfect! Love, love, love them!

I ordered these sandals not sure if they would feel as comfortable as I heard the regular Dansko shoes were. Well I was so impressed with how comfortable these felt and the support they gave. I now want to order the regular Dansko clogs...

I am writing this review because there aren't many here that talk about color, which I consider pretty important when ordering online. I own a pair of these that I bought at Nordstrom Rack in a shimmery blue shagreen. While the shoe is very comfortable, I feel a little self-conscious in the sparkly shoes (kind of like little girl shoes). So I decided to order the color 'champagne shimmer' hoping it had some pop, but hoping that the texture of the suede would keep the shimmer understated. It's the only color where the buckle is wrapped in same color leather, which I thought would add a uniformity to the look. Unfortunately the suede turned out to be infused with shine in a way I wouldn't think possible for suede. It looked like gold lame, and very old lady-ish. Because I really like the comfort factor and the two adjustable straps of the sandal, I decided to reorder the shoe in the color 'sand dollar.' That color is quite subdued and neutral, although it skews old-lady-beige a little bit. Also, it's got bright shiny gold buckles. I'm not sure if that makes the whole look more old lady-ish, or if the shoes would be intolerably boring without them. I think this might just be an old lady shoe and there's no getting around it. I guess I'll have to find out.

I love this sandal. It fits like it was made for me. I also wear the Dansko professionals daily for work - those fit slightly looser than these but just as comfortably. These are much lighter than the professionals in weight and I feel very supported - maybe better arch support than the professionals. I got the lime floral which is so, so pretty! I also got the blue floral, which I returned because I liked the lime floral better (although the blue is gorgeous and is just as shown in the picture). I also got the black shagreen which I did not like at all - it is not like a sparkly, shimmery sandal as I expected looking at the picture - it's just odd. Smooth to the touch, with kind of a black web with interspersed dots of very light neon white-green. Strange. Not for me. It also came in a box which had clearly been used, so I'm guessing the prior customer did not like them either! I may try the black shimmer instead, but will probably wait to see it in person first.

Cute shoes and comfy with some height. Ordered black shagreen, was a little surprised, I expected it to be black sparkly, it is definitely different, one of a kind but cute. If you want basic black go with anything, don't get this color, but if you want unique, this is your shoe color. A little narrow but buckles make for a perfect fit.

Super comfortable & I love the wide straps and the somewhat raised heel. The arch support is excellent. After trying different shoes of yours I think Dansko is the best bet for fit and comfort though the Ecco sandals I bought were also great.

Sigh. Not sure what to do here. The first pair ordered were a size 36. Loved them. Loved the unique pattern on the black shagreen. Loved the comfort. But they may have been oh so slightly too small. So I ordered the 37. The pattern was completely different - more blue than green and smaller, less iridescent dots. Not quite as comfortable (stiffer) and slightly too large. Just call me Goldilocks. May exchange both for two additional pair in same sizes and see what I get. If two pair of the same shoes can be that different, maybe I'll hit the right ones with another round of orders.

I have a love affair with taupe -- particularly the cool shade of taupe shown in the sand dollar color, so I had to have these shoes. I wear a 41 in Dansko clogs, and a 39 in my Birkenstock sandals. Since my normal size for an open-toed shoe is a 9, I split the difference and ordered a size 40 in this gorgeous shoe. It just barely fit, and did feel like heaven on my foot, but when I walked my big toe went over the edge, just like everybody else said. Obviously, I should have heeded their warnings! I am returning it for my usual Dansko size of 41 and hope it fits. I did notice that when I tightened the buckles, my big toe stopped slipping forward, but the buckles felt a bit tight and that won't be good in the summer heat. Other notes: the leather is very soft and smooth, they feel light and not clunky, and are just plain cute. I do think they are not only a little small, but a tad narrow in the toe area. I hope the 41s fit as Zappos is out of the sand dollar in the 42!

I have many pairs of Dansko shoes and sandals and these sandals are possibly my favorite of them all. The leather is not hard or scratchy like some sandals, and the buckles allow for a custom fit on my narrow feet. I'm thinking of buying another pair in either the blue or green!

I love, love, love these shoes. I have been happy with all the Dansko sandals I have purchased. I now own three pairs. I can work all day and my feet never hurt. I wish Dansko would make some closed toe shoes that didn't look so much like nurses shoes and I would purchase them, too. As always, Zappos delivered them the next day. Zappos is the way to go.

Super comfy! Loved them from day one. I am a wedding planner who will be very happy to have these on my feet all day. Big toe does seem to hug the edge a bit, but not that big of a problem to want me to have to return them.

I think the shagreen leather finish is the most beautiful and interesting leather texture I've ever seen. I bought the Dansko Sophie in a 41, though, and it just doesn't look good on my size 10 feet (looked great on my sister's size 7s, though). I'm going to return these and try the Dansko Sandie in shagreen.

Way cute shoe! Comfy, and having the two buckles allows for a totally custom fit! Moderate arch support, nicely cushioned footbed that's soft & doesn't make your feet sweat. Simple, but classy. Great for work or more casual events. Note: the "Black Shagreen" variation is very pretty, but it is not as dark as it appears in the photo. It actually almost looks polka-dotted. I like it but it isn't quite as conservative as I expected.

I received these sandals in two days: they were a very nice shade of green, but the leather had a dark mark on the top of the leather,so I ordered a second pair hoping to remedy the situation. The second pair was worse than the first appearing to have a spot that seemed to be touched up. I have had at least 10 pairs of Dansko shoes and have had no problems. Also had to order another color that Zappos was sold out; that one had brown blotches on them. This is also the first pair of ten pairs that was too tight on upper strap, so fortunately could be adjusted but makes straps look differently on side.
