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 am disappointed that this shoe did not last as long as the prior pair I ordered. I'm wondering if anyone else is complaining that the portion that runs over the top of the foot is fraying at the edge?

I love my Dansko's! They are definitely designed for a wider foot, and provide great space over the top,of the foot and toe area. I recently tried Sanita's brand, and cannot wear them. Great shoe for the narrow, skinny foot, but not for me. I'm a Dansko girl! Having arthritis means only top notch footwear, and this shoe is it for me! Also have to give kiddos to Zappos, thanks for shipping overseas for us military folks, and with super speed!

I have worn Dansko shoes for over 10 years. I have a very bad knee and need the support. Dansko is the only one that does the job.

I debated long and hard before spending what seems a lot of money for clogs. BUT if you read the reviews - and I did, these clogs are worth the price. I spend a lot of time of my feet and wanted something that could go from a casual day a the office to a soccer field to a barn (yup - lots of mud). These shoes are super comfortable and easy to clean AND look nice. As for sizing, I am a 6.5 with a more narrow heel so the37 European (6.5-7) was perfect. Definitely size up rather than down is you are questioning what to purchase.

Many years ago I bought a pair of Dansko/Sanita clogs (when they were still the same company) in size 38 and loved them, but the soles finally split and it was time to replace. I usually wear a 7.5 WW, so I ordered a Dansko 38 W and couldn't even get my foot in. Then I tried a 39 W and got my foot in, but with much discomfort. In short, the wide sizes are not truly wide. However, I tried a Sanita wide and was pleased to discover that they run wider than the Dansko. If you have a really wide foot, I recommend starting with Sanita.

I ordered this clog along with the Pro XP similar looking clog to see which one I liked better since I couldn't remember which I'd ordered in the past. This "Dansko Professional" is definitely the classic clog. It fit perfectly. I have always ordered my Danskos in size 41, although I'm traditionally a size 9.5 to 10, I size up for these since your heel is supposed to come out a bit when you walk. The 41 was perfect; however, the 41 in the Pro XP was very large on me. A great buy that will last me a year or two of constant wear.

These shoes are a great "old faithful". I tried to save money by purchasing non-Dansko shoes to replace my old ones which got holes in the soles after 5+ years of constant use. I finally came back to what I know is a great shoe: the traditional clog style of Dansko! Sturdy, easy to clean, warm in the winter, and looks great with jeans, wool shirts, or business casual wear. These shoes are a bit more red in color than the photo shows- I was happy for this, but others may be surprised! They also have a nice shine. I've gotten many compliments on them. One thing to note: these are quite snug across the top of the foot. My feet are super narrow, so this is great for me. It may feel constricting to someone with wide feet, or someone who likes to wear very thick socks.

Brands I'd also recommend: Chacco sandals

This was my first time buying a pair of Danskos. I am a pharmacist and on my feet all day long. I have narrow feet. I tried the regular width first which felt too wide, so I ordered the narrow width. The narrow width was extremely tight around my feet. I returned the narrow width and tried the regular again with thicker socks and they worked fine. It took about a week to break them in, but now they are extremely comfortable and my go to work shoe.

I wish I had seen other reviews prior to my purchase. I have owned Danskos and these felt much tighter in width. So sad as I finally found a pink pair and now am sending back.

I know they're not super stylish, but Dansko clogs are my go-to because they are so comfortable. I commute to work on foot and Dansko clogs are the perfect walking shoe for me. The soles do wear down from walking and I have to order a new pair at least once a year (every nine months would probably be better). I ordered the blueberry color most recently and it's a nice change from black or brown. It's a very dark blue - almost black - so the color isn't jarring.

I have been wearing Dansko clogs for 15 - 20 years. I am happy they still make this style in brown oiled, as it is now the only Dansko clog I can wear. A few years ago, Dansko changed the cut in their shoes and now they are much smaller. I have a small, wide foot and cannot wear the brand any more except these. I only wish they made this in black oiled. I wear these shoes almost every day for about two years, then the sole splits and I buy another pair.

Super comfortable and felt true to size. These are my third or fourth pair of Danskos and I absolutely love them. I usually wear a size 6 or 6.5, and the size 36 in Danskos fits me perfectly.

This shoe is really worth the extra money. I recently developed plantar fasciitis in one of my heels and needed to start wearing a better shoe. I have worn these all day, much of it standing and walking and my feet have been incredibly comfortable. Zappos prices are hard to beat and I am very satisfied.

I purchased two pair of Men's Sanita clogs a little more than six months ago. The black patent leather pair is falling apart! This after alternating between my Merrell winter boots, Frye cowboy boots and Salomon running shoes from purchase until now. My point is I am no stranger to quality footwear. I have been wearing Dansko and Sanita for more than 30 years. These are the most crappy poorly Chinese manufactured shoes I haver ever seen. The outer sole on the left foot and right foot is cracked from instep to out.  Also on both left and right foot the treads at the ball position and the outer heel of the foot is separating from the shoe. I spent nearly $200.00 for these garbage products and want my money back for the Black patent leather ones! The brown ones are ONLY in good shape because I have other brown shoes and I HARDLY ever wear them. I am a lover of good comfortable shoes. I buy 5-6 fashion shoes yearly. I only buy work shoes as needed. I should not have to replace these so soon. The first pair of Danskos I purchased I owned for 7 years. The second pair 9 years Seeing as I do have to replace them I will not be purchasing any more from Dansko or Sanita. Instead I'll have them custom made by Sven Clogs and get my money's worth. I will repost this problem everywhere I buy shoes where this brand is sold. In addition all my friends, family and co workers who are nurses, social workers, therapists, aides, drivers, doctors and officers who must wear good comfortable shoes will be informed of what a shoddy product these are. Money is too hard to earn to waste.

At first I was a little thrown off by Dansko's loose heel fit, but then realized this is part of the shoe's design. Felt a little tight over the top of the foot but after a week have broken in and are incredibly comfortable. I stand all day at work and recently strained my back; I can wear these all day and my back pain has been seriously alleviated after wearing the shoes. They are great!

I love the shoes they're very similar to previous Dansko's I have purchased the color is brown as shown but looks a little distressed hopefully they will hold up well. I prefer for my shoes to stay looking brand-new for a long time.

I have been getting this Dansko style for years! I work on a hard concrete floor where I am forced to stand. I've been working for over 20 years, and I have never suffered from foot pain, back pain like many of my coworkers. These clogs are the answer to all who stand for work. After 20 years of standing, I I moved into the wide width for a speedy break in.

Gorgeous color, very comfortable, reliable Dansko quality. Best shoes ever when you spend your day on your feet or sitting behind a desk. I am very particular about what I put on my feet. I have a wide foot, short toes and a narrow heel. I've been wearing Dansko's for 15 years and I look forward to new styles every year! Some shoes I want to buy two pairs of. That may be obsessive, but when I find super cute and comfortable shoes I don't ever want to be without them!
