On the job I stand for hrs at a time. I noticed by the end of the night my back and my feet didn't hurt. Love them so much I want another pair, because I hate wearing the same shoes more than 1 day in a row. Since I have very high arches I was unable to tolerate the old style, but these felt Great and very stylish.

Was visiting my daughter in England, and she told me to bring shoes that were waterproof. I knew we would be walking a lot, so these fit the bill! Very comfortable (since they are Dansko), and it didn't matter how wet they got due to the material they are made of.

I love these shoes! They are a better, snugger fit than my old loose Dansko clogs. I have very high arches and these arch supports I can actually feel. The heel cups are neither too hard or soft, and my heels do not slip out of the shoe when I walk. They don't seem to get scuffed! Air vents in the sides and top keep my feet from getting sweaty. Bonus points for not rubbing or pinching the top of my foot!

The Dansko Pixie is sassy, fun, and comfortable! And the compliments are never ending. Once again, I am so pleased with the quality of Dansko. Thank you for making my feet happy!

I absolutely love, love, love these shoes! I've gotten zillions of complements on them, too! They have a great arch and room for my toes! (I'm tired of pointy, cramped shoes.) I consider these my "all-weather, comfy" shoes with style. Dansko makes me very happy!

These are fun shoes with the Dansko comfort & feel. I bought them in Purple & Black. Because they are "plastic", they feel a little snugger than the regular Danskos in the same size.

OMG! I love these! I bought them for the color and style and because I'm often in the garden, my usual aversion to plastic was briefly suppressed. I never expected to put them on and not stop wearing them. They look great and everyone comments on them! I agree with reviews I read which call for the upper area over the arch to be increased, they can be difficult to put on as are my other Dansko's.

I have been wearing these shoes all morning. They look great. The arch support is great. I feel very stable in them. I got them to wear in the rain but probably will wear them other times. Might be too warm in hot weather but it's 75 now and I'm fine.

Great shoe for a good price. Definitely for a narrow foot. Does not give and retains its shape very well. Makes feet a little bit sweaty by the end of the day as they are plastic. Great color and the raised design is very interesting.

Here they are, the shoe with that arch in them which I've shopped for for years! This is the pair of shoes that has the great fit, room for toes, fits to width just right, and the arch is actually in these shoes for great support. The only thing I am unsure of is how tall am I with these on? Again, these are wonderful - I swear this time I found ARCH SUPPORT & Comfort in these!!! Due to my height, 9'9.5" tall, I'm unsure I will perhaps over shadow many wearing these, still thinking on saving or not, and it's not easy with these, I'm actually 5'91/2" Tall, so do I really want to be a bit taller? For this comfort? Perhaps! Try these if you want or can't find the proper arch support in any other shoe, these are great!

I would recommend buying a size down on these. The Pixies definitely run big. I've worn Dansko/Sanitas for decades, am a very typical size 7, and wear a 38 in a closed clog. The Pixie 38's were huge! The toe area was quite wide as well, and I feared I would turn my ankle, as my foot swam all over in them. I don't wear leather, so having limited vegan options, I was praying the 37's would fit. They are a perfect fit and I'm very pleased with them. Dansko needs to work on size standardization, I'd say. The material does retain heat, but isn't too bad and will be great in cold winter temps. One of the many outstanding customer service points of Zappos is their hassle-free, risk-free buying. The delivery speed was mind-boggling, as well. I have confidence in Zappos, and unless I move off the grid, I will always buy from Zappos.

I had no idea that these shoes were rubbery plastic, perhaps I missed that detail. However, they are very comfortable for my narrow feet and true to size. I do not recommend wearing them without socks on an 85 degree day. So sweaty!

I wanted to try Dansko so when I saw these in gray (my uniform colors are turquoise and charcoal) I was thrilled. I loved that they were anti skid and I thought they would be great during rain and snow. I wore them for over a month before I started to have issues with them. They fit great at first, but now after five hrs they begin to hurt in my left instep. It is too bad too, because otherwise they are super comfortable shoes.

very surprised many reviews say that the shoe runs large. I ordered my usual size 38 and couldn't even get my foot in the shoe. they have a very narrow toe box. They are a very stiff and firm rubber material. I want to wear them but I guess I'll have to order like two sizes larger!

Super cute and exactly what I was looking for. Bummer is the arches are really high and make the shoe very tight across the top of the foot.

I am a huge fan of Dansko but am uncertain about this new style of shoe. My hope is that it will grow on me. My very first reaction upon opening the box is that they seem VERY pricey for, well, PLASTIC! They are comfortable in the traditional Dansko sense (like their usual clogs), although my feet seem to roll backwards a bit when I walk, which is an unusual sensation for Dansko clogs. They are cute in a quirky way, and they looks as if they will last & be easy to clean. They are shinier than I expected them to be. All in all, I'm glad I made the purchase.

I love the color, design and comfort however these are not durable for the price I was very upset after seeing that one of the shoes have began to split in the front and at the heel. These are my first pair of Danskos and probably my last. I love the arch support however these shoes have not even held up three months.

Uggh. They are cute but I thought they would be lightweight; I believe the picture makes them look like they would be croc like. They are heavy, hard plastic/rubber. The arch hits in a different place in each shoe. They make a flatulent sound when you walk. Did NOT work for me. If you think they will work for you like some other reviewers, it is worth a try since returns are so easy. Love Zappos forever.

I agree, I had no idea these were rubber. Not as comfy as leather, no give...I love the color, but sole and heel should have been black or brown to give at least the look of leather. I would not buy again!

How I wish these shoes fit! Cute as can be and perfect for my wet work environment. Sadly the instep is far too tight rendering these unwearable. The tight instep is always an issue with Danskos for me, but the leather ones are not this tight, and do stretch.

I wore these for a month and a 3/4" long split developed in the left heel. I could still wear them, but after 3 months a 3" long split developed in the top side of the right shoe, rendering them unwearable. I'm very surprised - these are the 3rd pair of Dansko shoes I've owned, but the first plastic Danskos I've tried. I'm sold on their leather shoes, but these plastic ones were tragically inferior and useless after 3 months.

I did not see any information that stated this shoe was rubber. It has the quality of a Dansko but I did not want rubber shoes. Tacky.
