Over twenty years ago husband and wife, Mandy Cabot and Peter Kjellerup, were traveling in Europe and discovered the clog in a small shop. They quickly realized that this simple shoe had the potential to change their lives and the lives of anyone who might wear them, so they bought some pairs and brought them back to America. They shared those pairs with their friends who in turn, told their friends and on it went. Through this word of mouth, Dansko® was born. Today, the legendary comfort line is an employee-owned company based in Pennsylvania that offers a wide assortment of shoes from boots to sandals, and a plethora of clogs. Each pair of Dansko shoes delivers all-day comfort and support and benefits the feet of anyone who wears them.

The Professional line is a range of clogs for men and women that provide unparalleled comfort and support. And how do they make these open and closed-back clogs so darn comfortable? Well, it’s in the “Comfort DNA” that includes superior materials of leather or fabric, precise mold and fit, careful measuring and contouring, and a battery of tests to come to the final product.
Work Wonders by Dansko is a line of shoes specifically designed for healthcare professionals who often work long shifts entirely on their feet. They are specially built to work as hard as they do.

Just like other reviewers, I experienced comfort right out of the box! Replaced a similar pair of Dansko’s that I purchased 4 years ago, and still love, but I needed something a little less “used” looking. Wore those daily for 2 years (I’m a now-retired RN, and was on my feet constantly). I have well-lived-in feet (arthritis, status post bilateral bunionectomies, high arches, etc.), and these are super awesome! When weather is nice I live in my Birkenstock sandals, but these are amazing for a closed-toe shoe. I’d buy them again.
I really enjoy the look of this sandal, and it is much cuter than my other Dansko shoes. Unfortunately, every single time I wear them, they run blisters on my pinky toes—without fail. I put band-aids on them to try and prevent it...no matter...still get blisters. It makes me sad, because they really are cute shoes!
This shoe looks great, but the sizing was unusual. I ordered my regular size in Danskos and it was a full size too big. I exchanged for the next size down and it was way too small. The sole of the shoe is solid with not much flex, but it seems like it would provide good support. I liked the sole and structure of this shoe, it just didn’t fit me.
Got this for my sister as she loves to cook and is on her feet cooking for our family holidays. She said they are super comfortable.
Wonderful! I rebuy all the time.
The shoe is nice and was comfortable at first. After wearing for a day I had a rub wound on the sides of my feet. I am going to try wearing them again with socks, which defeats the purpose since I bought them to wear to work with dress pants and they are Mary Janes.
I was looking forward to loving these shoes, however I was disappointed from taking them out of the box. The antique brown color in the picture looks nothing like the shoe I received. The color was such a dark brown, it was barely distinguishable from the black Dansko shoes I own, not at all the shade pictured. Next on trying these out, my foot seemed to slip forward as I walked and I felt they were not secure on my foot, even with the smaller size choice that fit to the end of my heel. Definitely not happy with these for the price and they are going back.
This particular pair of Dansko Ellie shoes didn't work for me--I believe the right shoe is defective. My right foot is slightly smaller than my left foot, so when I tried them on, I was very surprised how tight the right shoe was, yet the left shoe fit very comfortably. Upon examining the shoes next to each other, it looks like the right shoe was made smaller, perhaps just cut small in the factory. The left shoe has a roomier toe and is a smidgen longer. I ended up trying the Ellie shoes on at a local retail store in the same (Eu) size 39. Happily, both the left and right shoes felt very comfortable and sized equally. Returning the Zappos pair and hope these shoes are sold to anyone else--they're defective.
these are my favorite heels. love the 70's style and they are super comfortable!
Adorable, but just too wide. My foot slid down to the bottom of the two and it would have been painful to wear for very long. Darn!
