These are great shoes. I am a true size 8 and prefer the size 39. Super comfy as I expected! So happy with this purchase. Totally feminine and stylish way to wear a clog.

These shoes are just what I needed. I have severe arthritis in my big toe joints and I had no pain at all when wearing them.

Cute, comfortable and they don't dig into the top of my foot. They stabilize my walking...can't ask for more than that!

Brands I'd also recommend: so far Dansko stapled clogs and the sandals are the only ones I've found that offer the support I need.

I absolutely love these shoes! I have the sand and black and I want the ocean. They feel wonderful. I have about 30 pairs of Dansko shoes and I think these are the best. A big thanks also goes to zappos.

I live in Danskos because of heel spurs and a back problem they are the only shoe that actually make the heel spur pain go away. This shoe is so comfortable and the color is so pretty goes well with jeans/skirts. In comparison to the clogs it's a much lighter weight shoe also which will make it perfect for summer.

Run a size larger than all of the other size 40 Danskos (including Mary Janes) that I own. I thought they were just wide at first, but 39's are great!

I bought these at a local store today (sorry, Zappos, but I was there and could walk out with them). Finally, a pair of Dansko MaryJanes that don't cut across the front! I'm so happy.

I bought the Ocean color pair and loved it so much, I decided to order another one in Sand Dollar also. This one looks a lot lighter in color in person and frankly looks very very orthopedic and granny looking in a bad way. Very comfortable but not keen on looking older.

These are a great shoe...so comfortable and soft, fits just perfectly with no pinching, or cutting across the top of the foot. The only downside for me is the heel. I have weak ankles, and I sometimes roll them very easily when I wear Danskos. So, I have to wear these beautiful shoes but think strong thoughts concerning my ankles. These are great ladies! Buy them!

Very cute. A little lighter in color than in the photo (a cornflower blue?). A great closed toe alternative to sandals for the office. The wood-grain look on the sole makes them feel summery.

I love these shoes. I was a bit hesitant to buy Danskos again because the last pair I bought had such hard leather. I checked the other reviews and they commented how soft the leather is so I took a chance (hoping to find a pair like an old pair of Danskos that I love and still wear). These were so wonderful that I went and bought another color a week later. They're so cute too and will be great this summer with skirts or shorts.

I love these shoes! The sand dollar color matches khaki perfectly so they go with a lot. I wear them with both dresses/skirts and pants. They are great for work, especially if you have to be on your feet or walk distances since they are so comfortable. They are a tad difficult to get on and off but I can slip them on without undoing the buckle on the ankle strap.

I have the standard Dansko clogs, and these feel very similar. Instant comfort, no breaking in period. Much more comfortable on the top of the foot than the other Dansko brand maryjane styles. Love them for being on my feet all day! Worth the money for sure. I'm a size 8-8.5 and I ordered a 39.

These are fantastic shoes! They are comfortable right out of the box. They are made from super soft leather. I love the sand dollar color. Thank you, Dansko, for introducing this great neutral. I live in Danskos and this is one of my favorites. I just bought my second pair.

I purchased these in black. I had two foot surgeries on my right foot in October 2011. Since then I have to buy more expensive, well made and podiatrist approved shoes. I have been wearing Merrell Encore Ice (slide on sheepskin lined clogs) and Aetrex Berry slides since I could only slide my foot straight in without bending the toes. This was my first "real shoe" in months. The sole is not as comfortable as I had hoped. It is quite firm, almost hard, but provides great stability. The slight rocker bottom is a must for me. I am able to keep the shoes on all day and walk around, however my right foot is a bit swollen by the end of the day. Receive many compliments on the style from people who know I have to wear special shoes now. I am actually planning to buy another pair/color for spring/summer. I wear them with my skirt suits and jeans so quite a flexible style. The leather is good quality and the heel height is perfect since I am 5'8.75" tall. I wear between a 9 and 9.5, so I had to buy the 9.5-10. Fortunately, they fit more like a 9.5 than a 10.

The leather on these shoes is much softer than it looks online. I returned them today even though the comfort level was there and I love Danskos generally. But something about this particular style just didn't look right on my feet. The toe box was just turned upward a bit too much for my taste. Otherwise, it's a cute shoe. I'll try the 'Maeve' and see how those work for me.

I am absolutely in love with these shoes. They are my first pair of Danskos. I've never bought the brand before because my ankle would roll out of the top of the heel, but this style, with the ankle strap, keeps my foot secure inside, and my ankles happy. I get compliments on these often as a shoe that looks cute but comfortable: it's a light, fun clog...not clunky at all. The color is a really nice neutral; I've got some leather conditioner and waterproofing spray that I plan to use, because with such light leather, things like grass and dirt will show easily. I'm wearing these every day, and have to convince myself to take them off. I am smitten. As for size: I am normally a US 7. I ordered both the 37 and the 38...while the 37 felt a little tight at first, it has worked out, and the 38 was way too loose.

I highly recommend the Dansko Sam for purchase. I have a lot of feet problems and own 6-7 prs. of Danskos. They are great for standing on concrete all day teaching school. I ordered this pair for a NYC trip. Did not have long to break them in. Walked all over Manhattan without aching feet! They look great with skirts, skinny leg jeans, and rolled up boyfriend jeans. I like the fact that they are dressier then the Dansko clog. I ordered 5 pair of shoes & returned 4 pair - no shipping. Go Zappos - no shipping cost!

In LOVE with these shoes! So comfy, so cute, so perfect. I got countless compliments on how adorable they were, and I wore them for 10+ hours at a time with absolutely no discomfort. I splurged on these shoes as a Mothers Day gift for myself (I NEVER spend this much on a pair of shoes). Not even a week after receiving them in the mail I spilled some melted butter on one of them causing a few grease stains D: I was absolutely devastated. As I was referencing the Zappos website to figure out the type of leather the shoe was so I could figure out my cleaning options (FYI: there aren't really ANY stain removing options) I had noticed the price had dropped by a ton within a week. Zappos not only refunded me, but they're also REPLACING my shoes. AT NO CHARGE. Who does that?! I will for sure be talking up Zappos for a while & I'll be using Zappos for future shoe purchases.

This is a great shoe! I am typically a 10, but when it arrived I found it a little snug across the top of my foot. Exchanged easily for a 10.5 and now they are perfect. So comfortable. The red is a sweet pop of color with skirts and jeans. Yahoo!

Love! Cute style. The tooled/embossed leather is really pretty and adds a feminine touch. I was worried that they would be too clunky and they are so not that at all. They do not make a lot of noise due to the soft sole. The padding and arch support feels great! Thinking of getting another pair. Definitely true to size and width. There is one little thing that is important to mention. These may not be suitable for anyone with a wide foot as they will show "spillage."
