Very supportive shoe! I just started an internship at a hospital and am on my feet constantly. My feet, legs, and back thank me every day. Take caution though, they did need to be broken in a bit. I purchased the shoe several weeks in advance and wore them to my other job. I'm glad I did because it loosened them up perfectly before I had to wear them for 10-12 hours at a time. In addition to being a well-made shoe it is attractive and stylish. I wear them with jeans as well for a polished look.

This shoe received such good reviews, I thought I'd give it a try. Unfortunately, it just wasn't right for me. The fit around the toes didn't feel comfortable, as if the shoe wasn't deep enough. It felt as if the tops of my toes were rubbing against the leather. I ordered the wide width, and it still felt too narrow. The final straw was when my husband asked me why I had purchased a pair of wooden shoes. I think he was trying to be funny, but that did it for me. I returned them.

These seem heavy and clunky compared to other clogs I own. They also slip on my heel making my light socks scrunch down. I was told there would be some movement on my heel - but I wound up with blisters as a result. They are cushy on the footbed and a fairly attractive shoe. Have good arch support. But would not make the investment in them again.

The jump from 39 to 40 is too much. I wear a 9 US. The 39 feels have size too short and almost too narrow, but that may stretch. The 40 nearly falls off my foot! I love the look of these shoes and want to keep. The arch support is tops, but I may send back. They cost too much to take a chance.

These are beautiful shoes, but unusually narrow for Danskos. I love Dansko shoes and have owned clogs, sandals, heels, etc. over the last years. I am a 40 or a 41, and ordered the 41. I do have somewhat wide feet, but I usually wear regular width shoes. I could barely get these on. I am returning them, sadly - they are adorable in person, I wish that I could keep them.

This shoe manages to be sleek without losing the Dansko chunkiness that I like. My usual 38 fits true to size. I only wish this design came as a boot for more structure and ankle support.

I love these shoes and the style, fit, and comfort is everything I expected. They are less clunky than the standard clog which is nice too. My only complaint is that the cordovan color is not as maroon/burgundy as other Dansko shoes in the past; it's more brown. But I still kept them because of the style. Would like a pair in black now!

Fantastic comfort with a sleeker, classy profile. Of the more than 10 Dansko and Sanita clog styles I've tried over the years, the Tamara style is IT for me, both in comfort and looks. Fits my high-arch, narrow-heel feet perfectly. Elastic gores allow wiggle room without gapping/slipping off. Fit is definitely more narrow than other Dankso & Sanita styles, but it's exactly right for me. (Would not recommend for someone with wide feet, however.) The buckle is a real, not Velcro. Love the look and have received compliments. I am a 50 year-old professional baker on my feet 12+ hours daily, so my shoes are key. Plus, Zappos service really is the best.

I really wanted to like these dressier than usual Danskos. I have about 10 pairs of Danskos and find them to be very comfortable. These were comfortable for my narrow and high arch feet, but I just couldn't accept the style. The toes rise way too much and I felt like a Dutch boy. Unfortunately I returned them.

I love these. I let my plantar fasciitis go way too long before rectifying it. These shoes are great to walk in. I have really wide feet and followed the foot measuring guide provided. If you must err on the side of caution, err wide...but truly they will conform to your foot's shape. They are leather so require some stretching for your foot...but as with all high quality material they are so worth it. Your swollen feet will thank you for years to come. My physical therapist thanks you as well. The Tamara is the shoe I do not have to wear my orthotics with.

I have worn these almost every day since I got them almost a month ago. I love Danskos, but they tend to be clunky. This is a sleeker (slimmer) style, so may not be for the wide-width wearer. I am a solid 8.5 M, with a small bunion on one foot, and a 39 fits perfectly. They are supposed to move up and down in the back when you walk -- it is a clog with a back. They have actual arch support, which is key for me as I teeter on the edge of plantar fasciitis relapse constantly with high arches. They are cute with pants, capris, and skirts with tights. They are more comfortable than being barefoot; I hate to take them off when I get home. And the adjustable strap is actually functional, it made them work with my high instep. What more can I say? Best comfy shoes ever.

I like to be somewhat fashionable and the great thing about these shoes is they meet the demand of walking I need to do for my job and coordinating with my outfits. Good quality. Now I need a brown pair too.

I love this shoe! It is stylish and offers more support than a typical clog - but is loose enough for comfort. I wear these Danskos every day in a job that requires considerable walking and have never ended the day with tired or sore feet.

I like these shoes better than the Dansko Professional. More sleek, and I don't feel like they are such a clog. But I still like the Professional series as well. Have both styles in both black and brown. Wear these shoes each and every day to work. My feet never hurt!

These shoes are gorgeous! Also very comfortable, I could wear them right out of the box. I did have to exchange the first pair to the next size up, so if you're in doubt shoot upwards.

I am still breaking them in but these are great! My last pair of Danskos finally died after eight years and these were the replacements. They are perfect for a workplace where I stand most of the day.

Danskos basically cured my plantar fasciitis, so I'm very loyal to the brand. I was nervous to order these because of all the reviews that mentioned how narrow they are. I usually wear regular width, but in some shoes I'm a wide. So I was skeptical, but I loved the shoes and decided to give them a try. First I ordered a size up, which didn't work, and then I got my usual size. They are more narrow and snug than other Danskos, but I kept mine and wore them and they stretched out a bit and were perfect (although I still prefer to wear thinner socks with them). Cute with Dansko legendary comfort. I totally love them.

They a little tighter than my other Dansko shoes. I was worried they would hurt my feet. They are just fine. I like the dressier style. Looks good with dress pants and jeans.

These are a comfortable as any Danskos that I own (six pairs, do not judge), but I was looking for dressier-looking shoes and these just do not fit the bill.

Love these! I had ordered a half size smaller than usual because of the extra length in the toe - big mistake! These shoes are extremely narrow! Buy the size you usually wear and if you have wide feet, you may want to try something else. I did exchange the size 39 for a 40 and it was the easiest, most painless process ever. I will do business with Zappos again! They were a pleasure to deal with!

I love these, but I admit it did take a couple of wears to break them in and I did have to get past the "wooden shoe" look of the toe. I'm not a fan of the traditional Dansko clogs and slip-ons, but these look nice with jeans and dress pants; and I like the extra height with the stability that Dansko provides. Not the sexiest shoe, but not frumpy either. Am considering buying a second pair in brown.

I purchased this as a gift for my mother. Personally, I think that they look better online than in person - but she loved them anyway. I ordered size 8.5-9 thinking that the the 7.5-8 would be too small for her size 8 feet - but had to return them for the 7.5-8 as the larger size was falling off of her foot.
