Like the other reviewers have stated, you may want to go up a half size so that your toes don't feel squeezed. I normally wear a 7-7.5 and I ordered the 7.5-8 and they fit well. For those of you that have never worn Dansko's, they will slide a little bit in the heel area, they aren't meant to be snug. You will LOVE this shoe!

Great looking shoe, it appears to be true to size. I wear a women's 12 and I found the toe area to be roomy but hard, thus not comfortable for me all day.

Great Danskos! True to fit for this style. A little harder to match with a work outfit since it's not a solid color. The black under-tone makes the pattern in the brown stand out -- not necessarily a bad thing seeing as I've already gotten tons of compliments. I had the black tooled clogs which were more neutral. Still...a great shoe and I wish I could find more brown pants so I could wear these more often.

Great shoes (as expected from Dansko) and beautiful design. They felt a little tight across the top of the foot at first, but I've gotten used to them. As always, excellent and very speedy service from Zappos. Thanks!

I have wanted to purchase this beautifully hand-tooled pairs of shoes for some time now. Rich in color and design, they fit comfortably. I first saw them on nurses, and realized they must be not only comfortable, but actually good for my feet. Thankfully, my size 42 was available, and fit like a dream!

Brands I'd also recommend: I am very pleased with all things, Dansko!

Works great for 1) commuting by bicycle, 2) wearing at the office, 3) casual wear, 4) use as house shoes. I have had a pair of Professionals before and loved them. They lasted roughly 9-10 years. I eventually got rid of them, because of odor issues in one pair and the other I gave to a friend, who still wears them. Great shoes...Love the style...Couldn't have asked for more, in this style.

Great shoe. I've been we wearing this particular shoe for three years now. I no longer have any pain from plantar fasciitis. A clog was my podiatrists first recommendation. I just wish they had it in navy blue! I get numerous compliments on this shoe.

I absolutely love these shoes! Advice to others order at least one size bigger than you normally take. Also love the 365 day return policy!!! Mine were too small so needed to send back and reorder but it was absolutely no hassle at all!....no more since these shoes came to my house, no more shots, no more pain and no more incerts!

I love these shoes! So comfortable for 12+ hours. I ordered a half size wider for a bigger tie box. Your heel is supposed to slip in and out so don't be alarmed!

Beautiful shoes. Super comfortable. Long time Dansko wearer. I was concerned about ordering online because I have a very high instep. Typically, in a store I have to try on a couple of pairs before I get a fit. But with Free Return shipping I thought I would give it a try. Perfect fit first time! I will definitely use Zappos again!

I love this shoe. They work great with my work attire, but then I can also rock them with my Lulu yoga pants - gotta love that! I have some other Danskos and they've gotten scuffed to all hell. These are great because the tooling prevents that scuffed/worn look. They are made super well and I'm sure I'll be able to rock them for years to come.

OMG - these shoes rock! Sizing was accurate for the clog style. The hand tooling is impeccable, the quality is exactly what you expect from Dansko! Love, love, love these shoes.

I am a nurse and often on my feet for 12+ hours a day. I also have back issues so I need the most supportive and comfortable shoe out there. And this fits the bill! It is so comfortable and supportive, and the etching on this style gives it a little stylish "pop" without being too much. I wear a size 9 in most shoes and the 39 fits me perfectly.

I love Zappos!! They do an awesome job sending shoes so quickly. The Dansko Professional Tooled shoes are very comfortable. I was told that Dansko shoes are made to fit so they slip on and off the heel. It was a recommendation that a good measure was to fit your pinky finger between the back of the shoe and your foot.

I wear an 8.5. I had to go one size larger for this shoe (which fits great). Is slightly snug on the top of the foot. This Dansko shoe also slips (intentionally) on the back of the heel.

This is my first pair of Dansko shoes and I absolutely love them! I was skeptical about spending this much money for shoes but I am a transformed believer in Dansko shoes for work. My knees and heels were hurting constantly and after investing in these shoes, I am pain free! I have a shoe "problem" according to my husband but part of that has to do with comfort. Now I can wear tennis shoes only on the weekends! Yay! After 18 years of nursing I have finally found my new brand of work shoes!

My feet sighed in relief the instant I put these on. I love Dansko shoes and these meet all expectations! The tooled look adds a lot to the otherwise plain looking shoe! I have plantar fasciitis and these are the best shoes I have found for the condition! You will not regret this purchase and they are long lasting! Beware with sizing. You do want this to slip on the heel. I typically wear a 7.5-8 shoe and in Dansko I wear an 8.5-9.

It turns out that I have a European-sized foot and nearly all 37s fit me well. In US sizes I am a 6.5 or 7 and need a wide. But the Dansko clogs have enough extra width that even if these are not sized wide, they fit. I loved the tooled look from the start, although I was hoping for other colors than black or brown. That said, once the black arrived, I really liked it and now am very pleased with it. Some of the other patterns are too much for me, but this is just right to take the shoe out of the ordinary without too much exaggeration.

This is my first pair of dansko and I love them. I wear them all the time. I now have a pair for work as a nurse. I like these because I can wear them with jeans and with black pants as well. The pattern dresses them up a bit.

I had bought the black ones a while ago and love them. I wanted a brown pair and found one that I really liked them. I got them in today and it is the same size that I always get and for some reason they are big. I can walk right out of them. I do not understand that. They are a 6½-7 women's in regular width. I love them and do not want to send them back because I think the size smaller might be too small or tight....But I do not see how they can be that much bigger for me.

To the lady who is sending them back because they are stiff: That is something I needed to get used to. But, with feet that make it impossible to wear most shoes, these, once I was used to them, are comfortable to wear. Wear them around the house awhile before giving up. They are wonderful!

These are my go to shoes for everyday wear. I do not necessarily love the way they look with skirts, but they look awesome with bootleg jeans. Most importantly, I can wear these all day long while standing on my feet. I do not think I would wear them for all day walking. With age, my feet have become very troublesome. I have bunions on both feet, and I have broken them both. I have a bad knee from an accident, and a bad back. I wear these without orthopedics and am very comfortable. Yes, the heel is supposed to slip a little. At first, that felt so strange, but I trusted the shoe salesman at Nordstrom, and he was right. I recommend these without reservation, especially if you have bunions. Boy, do I miss my beautiful Italian narrow toed heels! These cushion the blow.
