The Professionals are different from other Danskos (that look superficially the same) in two ways: they come in different widths, and they fit tighter across the instep. I found I needed a Wide, and the tightness across the instep bothered me even in the Wide width. I love Danskos, but I think I'll stick to the non-Professionals from now on.

I ordered these clogs in wide and couldn't even get it on my foot. I really wanted them to fit since I've heard great things about Dansko clogs. I wish these hadn't come up in my extra-wide shoe search.

I have always wondered what all the hype was about Dansko shoes. I couldn't bring myself to spend the money. But I am so glad I did! These have got to be the most comfortable shoes ever. All day wear and no backache no sore legs! I wish I would have bought them years ago! Worth every penny!

Barely long enough, but fits perfect. I wear 9.5 to ten so I ordered 40 wide. Usually I only need ten to get the extra width, but in these I almost needed to get 41. But while the length was a close call, they fit perfect. I love the space for my toesies and the instep is high enough in this model. Some Danskos are too tight in the instep for me, but these I'm lovin'.

At first I almost returned the shoes because they felt too big. After some research I found out the were supposed to fit this way.. And they are amazing! I work in a pharmacy and work between 8 and 12 hour days and these save my feet, knees and back. I'm really hoping they last a long time. Definitely worth the price.

I suffered from Achilles tendonitis for years. Probably close to 20 years. Went from doctor to doctor. No one was able to help me. My daughter told me about Dansko. I thought, "what the heck". So I bought my first pair. Within 6-9 months I began noticing that my Achilles heel was not as painful anymore. I continued to wear only the professional Dansko shoes. It probably took a full 18 months to 2 years, but eventually I had no pain at all. I believe these shoes truly heeled what no doctor could. I recommend these shoes to anyone with Achilles tendonitis.

These are the only shoes I will wear for nursing. 12 hour shifts and I don't have a bit of foot pain. I would have never guessed I was a narrow size but I got sized in a Walking Company store. The narrow size makes all the difference! I couldn't wear Dansko's if it wasn't for the narrow sizes. I go a size up and get the narrow. I do wish the narrow sizes came in some of the other cool patterns But I still love my cabrio (dark red) leather ones.

So pleasantly surprised! People seem to either loooove or hate these, which is very interesting. I almost didn't risk it since t have a very narrow foot but I went straight for the 'narrow' style and it is absolutely perfect for me. I wasn't having any swelling or major foot soreness with the shoes I was wearing before, but the lower back stress seems to be completely resolved with these AND I can stay on my feet in the hospital for a 12 hr shift and be totally fine. I also find myself just kicking them on when running errands etc, they truly are that comfortable to me! Highly recommended! Based on some of my friends' experiences, if you don't immediately find a pair that fits, keep trying different styles and keep looking - I think they feel different to everyone, and may require some hunting to find just the right pair.

This is my 2nd pair of Dansko's. I have plantar fasciitis and the 1st pair worked wonders. These are a little snug in the instep, but mine is high. Hoping they stretch a bit. Otherwise, they are extremely comfy. Very worth the money. I'm a size 5 (so it's hard to find shoes my size) and these fit perfectly. Thank you Zappos for having small sizes!

I know so many folks who love this shoe and find it extremely comfortable, so my hopes were up when I noticed that a narrow was available. I found the narrow in name only; the fit was wider than any narrow shoe I own.

I was introduced to Dansko about 10 years ago when a friend gave me a pair. That first pair lasted until last fall , no joke. Of course, I have bought many styles other than this. I use these for work and casual wear on the weekends. LOVE THEM. Great for walking/standing. Easy to slide your foot into or out of after a long day. This style has always fit my foot well. They fit well and look good/professional, not sloppy. Try them!

These shoes run small. I usually wear a 9.5-10 and in the Danskos I wear a 41 narrow. I am a nurse working three 12 hour shifts. These shoes are amazing! I was wearing good tennis shoes that cost the same as the danskos and my feet/back were killing me by the end of the shifts. The first night I wore my dankso's, my back did not hurt at all, but my feet were a little sore. After the first week, my feet no longer were sore, it took a week to break them in. If you are on your feet for long hours, these shoes are worth the price! Also, the color here is not correct, if you look on Dansko's website, the color for cabrio leather is the color you will get, not this brown color pictured. I took a chance that Zappos had the wrong color posted and I was correct. Save your back get these shoes!

I work 12 hour shifts as a nurse, I do not think my back and feet could survive without these shoes. They provide excellent arch support. I find them true to size. These shoes made me a Dansko fan. This is my second pair of these.

I am so pleased with the service from Zappos. I received a pair of Dansko shoes for Christmas as a gift. they were the wrong size so I called Zappos and they took care of the problem they said go ahead and mail the old ones back and we will mail you a new pair of shoes in the correct side so I did and I receive them 2 days after Christmas it was really great that I had a new pair she's only 2 days after Christmas. thank yous apples I will shop with you again.

LOVE these shoes. I am an ER Tech and I spend 8+ hours on my feet every day. I had terrible back and foot pain until I got these shoes. They take a few weeks to break in, the leather is high quality and sturdy. Now that I have them broken in, they are wonderful. I'm considering buying another pair.

I personally think they are the best shoes ever. The problem is that lately I encounter a size problem which I had never had before. I wore these shoes for more like 12 years, the last pair I bought was 39 and they fit fine, now 39 now is huge and the 38 is too small. I heard they changed the format or something a few years ago. They also used to have half sizes long time ago, and they carried narrow, medium and wide, and now they mostly sell "regular." At least this is the situation with Dansko in Seattle. So at this point I can't renew mine anymore, unfortunately.

SANITA v. DANSKO: I had tried three pairs of Sanita clogs after hearing they were the "original" clog manufacturers. Unfortunately, two of the three pairs seemed poorly made, with uneven staples, leather sticking out of the sole, etc. They also seemed to run narrow, even the "wide" width, causing me to return the third pair. I tried a pair of Danskos and got it right the first try! Danskos seem to run a little wider than the Sanitas. Plus, the pair that I received was visibly better manufactured than the Sanitas; staples were even, no leather was bunched up, etc. We'll see how they hold up with lots of wear. I have a "desk" job, but since I have a standing desk, I'm on my feet all day. These have good arch support and help me stand up straight. I have a feeling these will be my go-to shoes! Only 4 stars for comfort since the sole is not cushy (might get an inexpensive set of cushy insoles).

My first Dansko pair. I'm a nurse and those who work 12 hr shifts know that your legs can be sore at the end of the day. I must say I'm impressed. Many of my colleagues love their Danskos. I've always wanted to try but didn't really want to fork out the price tag. This pair was on sale on Zappos for less! I took advantage of it! The color, hickory cabrio, was exactly what I was looking for. To me it looks like a rich dark brown with perhaps and hint of a deep maroon color. I wear a 6.5 and bought a 37. I also have a wide foot but the regular fit fine. With a nice pair of thick socks it fits perfect. Wearing thin socks may leave the shoe slightly loose. Thanks, Zappos!

These are absolutely the best shoes I have ever had. I have a lot of leg pain due to poor circulation and these help that so much...I would recommend these to anyone that has to walk a lot or wants too... I can walk fine with no pain as long as I am wearing these.
