Sanita

Since 1907, Sanita® has embraced the Danish word "hygge" (pronounced hue-guh) in the construction of each and every pair of Sanita clogs. Loosely translated, "hygge" means "making everything cozy". Clean design, natural materials and fine craftsmanship are just a few things that make Sanita clogs so special. Christian Andersen, Sanita's founder, utilized these three things to help make Sanita what it is today. Andersen left his career as a farmer forever when he began creating clogs out of wood. After a half-century of building the business, Christen and his son Johannes closed their successful store and completely devoted themselves to designing and distributing footwear. This risky maneuver paid off in the early 1980's.

1983 marked a definitive year for Sanita - that's the year that Christian discovered a factory in Italy that made cast soles out of polyurethane. This innovate new technology allowed Sanita to shape clog bottoms to fit the anatomical shape of the foot. With heel, arch and toe support and added shock absorption, the polyurethane heel combined with the upturned toe of the Sanita clog provided unmatched comfort and launched each and every step with a simple rolling motion. Thus, the Sanita Original Collection (then the San-Flex) was born and is still made in Europe.

Clogs have been a worker's choice for years. Anyone who stands on their feet all day knows the benefits of wearing a finely crafted clog. More recently, clogs have become a fashion statement as well and can be seen on the feet of the fashionable worldwide. For the past 25 years, Sanita has continued to innovate with superior design, materials and hand-crafted European construction. Other Sanita collections such as the Leisure Collection, Occupational Collection, Wave Collection and Vegan Collection cater to the specific needs of the Sanita customer and have helped Sanita further separate itself from other clog companies.

I like these shoes. I ordered a size larger and they fit fairly well. Much better than the similar Dansko Karl I tried. Initially the left shoe felt a tad narrow, but after wearing it for two days it was fine. I just wish it was a little bit longer. My heel is right at the back of the shoe. Maybe that’s where it should be, but I feel like it should be a little longer. That said, I don’t feel like it’s going to fall off, and it is comfortable. I’m happy with them.

Lovely Sanita clog, but fit is "off." Not sure why there's such inconsistency with these styles. I am keeping them, as I can wear them with a thicker sock.

I’m really happy with this shoe. The recommendation to go up a size was a good one. I first tried two different sizes in the Dansko Karl and neither one worked for me. This shoe initially was a little narrow on my left foot, but it felt better after wearing it all day.

I wear clogs in the OR. The last 5-6 pairs have been Sanitas. My feet had been bothering me ever since I stupidly put on an old pair and stood for 8 hours for a case. Needless to say I started to look for new shoes and even different options with more padding in the bottom. After trying multiple options including Dansko and Merrell professional, I ended up with this Sanita Smart Step. It has padding in the bottom unlike the traditional professional Sanita and Dansko options - what a lovely concept! Life changing. Within 2 days of cases my feet are on the mend. **A note about this print - it’s reflective. Like really reflective -work on a road crew safely reflective. It’s not in all light or at all angles but when it flashes it’s bright and distracting. Let’s just say I’ve made a lot of new friends while hustling around work. I’ve also sold a lot of shoes when telling them that they have padding and letting them try them on to feel (hospital people are weird- we know it). Everyone agrees the padding is a big upgrade over other versions.

I started wearing Dansko when I was teaching. Now, Sanita tend to fit me better because I have a narrow foot. I wanted to get an "Original" style because I read that they are still made in Denmark. The Rose color was one of the few in my size. Since I mostly wear them around the house now that I am retired, I figured the color would be fine. It is too soon to tell how they will wear in the long run. The pair I replaced was at least 10 years old.

It took two orders and three pairs to find the ones that fit me perfectly. First couple were a smidge short. The third pair are perfect. All three fit loose in the heel and provide enough height to not bother my bunions. I have bad ankles and these help me to walk without pain. For me they fit like the Dansko XP 2.0 and Pro pairs I have. Definitely recommend but patience to find the right pair that fit may be needed. Thank goodness for Zappos great and easy returns and fast shipping.

I about because on sale and like the color. Use these type of shows a lot, buy many styles. One shoe was longer than the other. Is slight and needed them so kept them but should not have b/c now that have been worn, the slight size difference is being affected when i walk. I think zappos puts the rejects on sale b/c i've bought other on sale items, and there is always something wrong with time. I have returned those, and i should have with these. It is such a shame things are not being made right and not double checked for quality.

I have been in the healthcare field for several years and Dansko was always my go to clog brand. However, the last 2 pair of clogs I purchased did not hold up even half as long as my originals that were still made in Europe (as they are now manufactured in China). A cousin of mine gave me a pair of Sanitas about 8 years ago that she purchased new and decided she was NOT a clog person. I took them but honestly thought ..."Oh these must be like generic Danskos" and threw them in the bottom of my shoe pile. After my last 2 "dud" pairs of Danskos I figured I had nothing to lose. Well, 6 years later those Sanitas have been well worn at least 4 days a week and other than the fact that the soles are completely cracked through and the heels are peeling, they still look pretty good! (They are navy blue suade). I could not find an exact replacement, so I opted for the black leather in the same size. Right out of the box, the new ones fit great! I am now a Sanitas girl all the way. No more crappy Danskos, ever!

I bought two pairs in size 39. One pair was huge , fit like a size 40. The other pair fit small and narrow , like a size 38 narrow.. No quality control of size. Both boxes of shoes were sent back . Waste of time.

I bought red patent. These are like candy apple red, a bit too bright for me. Otherwise the fit is great. I love both the dansko and sanita brands--for me very comfortable and supportive. I will look at other colors. These were size 41 wide. Good fit with light socks.

I ordered the Sanita Acasia (black patent with an oil slick sheen) and really liked the color and style. I normally wear a size 38 but had to size up to a 39 in these. The width and length in the 39 were perfect, but the shoe was too tight across the top of my foot. In addition, the left shoe fit more tightly than the right shoe, which is odd because my right foot is slightly larger than my left foot. In the end, I chose to return the shoe because of the tightness on top of my foot.

Had I been able to slide my foot all the way in, I think the size and width would have been good, but the top of the shoe was tight across my foot. I also found the foot bed really hard. These are going back.

These are my second pair of Danita clogs. Needed a "goes with everything, can wear socks" shoe for 8-10 hour days in salon. Sanita's do not disappoint. My only complaint would be the top/inside of clog is coarse against my feet, even with socks. I think they will break-in and this will go away since I have no issues with original clogs. Quality is excellent. The Cordivan color is beautiful and I can wear with all my dark trousers. All-day comfort and style!

This is my second pair of these shoes, and they feel great right out of the box. The sizing compares the 38 to a 7 or 7 1/2, but I wear an 8 in running style shoes.

I have numerous pairs of Danskos, these however, are so tight across the top, it actually hurt to try and put them on. Not sure if going up a size will even matter. But, they are really cute.

I love, love love this shoe and have been wearing it for over a decade. Each pair lasts at least three years, if not more if you don't care about scuffs. Here's the thing though: They are highly variable in size. I ordered three pairs of the EXACT SAME SHOE, same size, before I found the pair that fit just right. Keep trying. It's worth it.
