My right foot and toes are very wide and I have high insteps, and fortunately I was able to get my right foot into the Dansko Frida but not the Dansko Felicia. I am so happy! The Frida is beautiful and comfortable! Great, comfortable high heel! I bought the black/37.

The most stylish, overpriced and uncomfortable Dansko sandal I have ever purchased. I am a long-time Dansko fan and customer, but these sandals are long on style and sadly, incredibly uncomfortable.

Bought my usual 39. I have low volume feet and have a hard time with Dansko sandals (I wear the narrow in the clog). I liked the sissy because of the rocker bottom and adjustability, but can't get them anymore, sadly. These are higher than I wanted, but the strap that goes over the instep and behind the heel isn't fixed (awesome feature!) so I was able to get them snug enough to hold my foot back. I was worried that they would be too loose in the toes and I would slide out the front, but I'm thrilled to say I didn't have any problems after a full day teaching in them. The balls of my feet were slightly sore at the end of the day, but no blisters and no back or knee pain. I'll probably get one or two more in different colors!

I'm a bit disappointed with Frida. I bought her because I needed something nice to wear to Las Vegas at night and knew Dansko prided themselves as a comfort brand. They are cute with the studded detail, lightweight, Medium width, and have a suede-like footbed, yet I noticed that they weren't very padded. My disappointment is that after walking in them for 3 hours, the balls of my feet were rubbed so raw by that suede, I was screaming in pain. Had Dansko arched the toe section of the sandal up slightly, my feet wouldn't have moved downward so much, causing the friction. And it would've given the sandal a younger look. Sure I'll buy the Dr. Scholl's ball-of-foot inserts, but for the money spent, I felt like Dansko could have created more shock absorption. On a bright note, I ordered the sandals on a Monday morning and they arrived on Tuesday afternoon, just in time for my trip - way to go Zappos!

I wear a 39 in Dansko so I picked up my normal size and they were too small. I then tried the 40 and they were too big. The sizing seems off with these sandals and that is too bad (for me) because I really loved the look of these!

I absolutely love these sandals. The support is excellent. I can wear them all day long, and my feet do not hurt one bit! They provide great arch support, too!

I love these shoes! Super cute shoes for a night out! They took a little bit to get used to the height, but now I feel confident, comfortable, and secure in these shoes! I can't tolerate any heels other than Danskos.

I absolutely love this shoe. I've worn them with a couple different long dresses to outdoor weddings with uneven grass and lots of dancing. I don't wear heels very often and these were so comfortable right out of the box. I did have to have an additional hole punched, but the straps adjusted well at the connection points (some don't) so it worked really well. They'll look great with jeans this fall and winter too.

I'm over the moon for the pair of Dansko Frida I just purchased. I really needed a nude pair of sandals that can be dressed up or down. I worried that three inches would be too high for me but since you have the ankle strap and great arch support, I feel secure in them. They are stylish, yet durable. I will get years of use out of these sandals.

I have some usual new-shoe blistering on my pinky toes, but they are otherwise very comfortable. They are wide across the metatarsal bone which is my main priority in all shoes. No pain in the the ball of the foot despite the rather high heel. They are also well-balanced: I walked around some cobble-stoned streets in them and didn't twist off once, which I have found to be a consistent issue in wedges. So far so good!

I love these shoes! Comfortable but stylish and the color goes with everything. I've been packing these for business trips because they can go with casual/work place summer dresses and I can wear them with jeans after work.

These are incredible! I wore them almost straight out of the box all day/evening/night to a wedding that included chasing around a four year old and an eighteen month old. They were super comfortable! It felt like I had been wearing sneakers all day - I did not feel like I had been wearing 3" heels all day. That was incredible. I wore them with a black sheath dress and pearls to a wedding. But I turned around and wore them out with jeans the next weekend. They are super versatile. I do not normally do heels, but I do these!

True to size, however, if you have a high instep the straps are snug at first. I rubbed a little bit of rubbing alcohol on the inside of the straps before putting them on then wore them all day. After two times of doing this, the straps loosened up and are very comfortable now. Great shoe, no pain while wearing them.

Finally! A super sexy shoe from Dansko! And I'm a Dansko fan. I own many pairs of Dansko and my size runs either 38 or 39. I originally ordered a 38 but sent it back for a 39. Thank you Zappos for making returns SO easy. I love this fun, sexy summer sandal and so does my husband.

After having discovered Dansko shoes, I have become their biggest fan. I have wide feet and I absolute love the way Dansko sandals fit! Frida is no exception! I highly recommend them! I have not gotten used to the loose fit in the clog-type Danskos yet, though.

Love the tangerine color. Not as bright as in my computer photo...closer to the stitching om a pair of Levis. I have a wide foot and due to this fit I found I went down a size (otherwise my toes wanted to go slightly over the front edge). These fit me like a glove and the look is fabulous!

I love these. I got them in orange and they really pop! I am short (5'2") and I feel like these give me some extra length. I'm thinking about ordering them again in another color that is more neutral. I love them a lot! I think they're good for both weekend and professional settings.

These are excellent comfortable shoes! I never wear heels due to feet ankle knee and hip troubles, but these are amazingly stable, sexy, and a little dressier than most of my shoes. I never thought that I would be comfortable in something so high, but I felt safe on stairs in them and I did not feel like I might turn my ankle at all. Danskos usually are too tight across the vamp for me but these fit like a glove right out of the box.

I bought these shoes to wear to a conference. The hotel was 4 blocks from the conference center. I wore these shoes every day, walking back and forth, for 4 days. My feet felt wonderful. They are not like other Dansko shoes in regards to comfort but they are the most comfortable wedge sandals I have ever owned. I love the color, too.

Overall I really like these shoes. I usually wear my Dansko clogs or my Dansko "Rae" when I want heels, but I wanted a pair of sandals with heels for the warmer months. For heels, I find these shoes are very comfortable, though not as comfortable as my "Rae" Danskos in my opinion. In comparison to other Danskos I would give them a 4 or 4.5 for comfort, but definitely 5 compared to any pair of sandals with 3" heels. Since they are platform type shoes, the foot bed isn't a sharp angle and doesn't leave me feeling like I'm walking on my toes the way other 3" heels are. I would buy them all over again.

I really like these! I thought that I would not because they looked so "high". However, they are very comfortable and dressy enough to wear with a dress. I wear a lot of Dansko clogs and sandals for work.

I live in Hawaii and am always looking for comfortable and stylish wedge sandals. These Danskos are the first time that I have ventured away from the brand Born when it comes to that type of shoe. I bought the orange and loved them so much, two weeks later I bought them in cream. I wear a size 11, and the 42 fit me perfectly (though 42 here is marked "11½ - 12"). My favorite part is the stellar arch support. These are adorable and very comfortable sandals! I love them, dare I say, better than Born?!
