Amazing! Okay, so first thing to say is these are European sizes so for example a EU 42 is a US 11 not a 12! I have seen this mistaken made repeatedly on different sites. If you get the wrong size, of course it will not fit properly and that is not the manufacturer's fault. Take EU size and subtract 31 and you get true US sizing. This goes for all EU sizing in women's shoes. Now on to the actual boots, they are fantastic! I bought a different pair of Dansko boots last year and wore them 12 to 14 hours a day for a week straight while touring Washington DC! While the style of these is different everything else including the heels height and width and cushioned insole are the same. I actually prefer this style which is very similar to a Swedish brand that are insanely expensive (you know which brand I'm talking about)! I prefer these because I have a bad back and am fluffy so I'm not sure my feet could handle walk on wood all day (the Swedish clog like boots are wood soled). I get asked repeatedly who makes them and get compliments all the time. This is only my 3rd pair of Dansko but they have yet to disappoint. They are cut for medium width so wide widths beware these may not work. Also the top of the boots has a generous opening (I'm fluffy but do not have cankles, thank you very much!) so not sure how super skinny ankles chicks will look. I have worn them with tapered ankle pants, a midi skirt and cropped leggings which all looked damn good! I bought the taupe color since most of my boots are black but honestly these are so amazing I may need to buy the black ones because one the season is over Dansko will probably discontinue the style. I suggest spraying them with a suede waterproof spray or bring them to a cobbler before rocking them in the rain or snow. Especially the taupe I would think will be a mess without the spray. If you need a pair of extremely supportive and stylish booties, then do not hesitate because you will not regret buying these beauties!

Hi - Dansko! I am just returning this item. I loved it, but found it a huge struggle to get my foot into it. The opening is too narrow for a right-angled foot to bend into the boot. I thought about taking it to a leather worker and having them cut a small triangle on the outside, and put elastic in it, but after spending this much for the boot, I decided not to. If you have high arches or a healthy sized foot, you will not be able to get it on. I hope Dansko is reading this! Please remake your boot, and I will buy it again! Love clogs - they are so comfortable.

Gorgeous boot, but absolutely NOT medium width. The boot is so narrow I couldn't even get my foot all the way in. SO bummed.

These are beautiful and well-made ankle booties. I have been a long time wearer of Dansko clogs and have always worn size 37. After reading many reviews I ordered size 36 in the taupe color. I believe that the reviews on size are conflicting because customers are wearing these booties in a variety of ways. For me, I am purchasing the booties for early spring to wear with cuffed jeans. In this pursuit, I am looking to wear thin ped socks to be able to show some skin above the boot. Therefore, the size 36 fits great. Additionally, the taupe color is an ideal and versatile light grey.

Oh Maria, here I am on Zappos in the same place I was last year. Ready to order another pair of these wonderful shoes. After unexpectedly moving to Oregon, becoming a bike commuter and working in retail full time on my feet I didn't have any shoes to fit the bill. These have been everything and more. I have worn them everyday to work for a year, through the rain, on my bike. Because they are leather, the initial fit is snug. I had to go down to a 7 from being a 7.5 normally. However, once the leather ages the shoes become more comfortable and will become the most true to size shoe you will ever have. You can also clean them and buff them and the black stays dark - I love wearing them out on evening occasions (especially in the winter). The heel is tall enough for support and length but not to make you tower or uncomfortable, and the faux wood contrast always catches attention. Truly can wear with everything (Maybe the exception is hiking, but I hope that is obvious). I have gotten so many compliments, and I just tell people - Spend the money on Maria.

I loved the way this boot felt, and with 2 extra inches of shaft, I would have kept them. If you are into rolling your jeans up and showing a little ankle, or you want to wear these with skirts, they will work great. But the boot shaft is too short to tuck skinny jeans.

I am thrilled with these shoes. I have never owned a pair of Danskos before so I was unsure of the sizing. I had tried them on some years ago but found them to be very clunky. Not these! I am almost always a 7.5 and I ordered the 37. Perfect fit. Since I now have a toddler running around, I need to put comfort first these days. Luckily, these are VERY comfortable right out of the box AND just as stylish. Sure, they aren't the you-know-what... They're better!: made in America, employee-owned, stylish, more comfortable, and reasonably priced. Love, love, love. (Also, they zip on the side so I don't know why anyone would have trouble getting them on).

These clog-style booties are wardrobe staples! I bought the neutral last season and I had to wait until this year for the black as they were continually sold out everywhere. These shoes are exceptionally comfortable, and I say so as a New Yorker who walks everywhere. Unlike most clogs and Danskos in general, the sole actually flexes even though it's styled as wood. Although I typically don't like the look of fake wooden clogs (I've always really loved traditional clogs and have many wooden pairs), I still love these booties! Totally worth the price, you'll wear them everywhere. As for sizing, I'm a pretty standard 6.5 U.S. but for these I am very comfortable in a 36. I have other European sized shoes in 36 but usually I am a 37. Since a 36 worked in these, I'd say they may run a little large.

I have owned the Black Nubuck and the Black Full Grain version of these shoes so I thought I could offer some good insights into both. I work in retail and am on my feet all day (8 hrs), so I was looking for a stylish bootie with great support. These aren't quite the same footbed & arch support as Dansko professional clogs, but they are still excellent for my needs. They offer great arch support and the rubber soles are amazing shock absorbers. I am a size US 8 1/2 and I wear a size 39 in Danskos. I purchased the nubuck version first because there wasn't another option available. They were very soft and comfortable right out of the box, no break in period at all. They did stretch out pretty quickly and my foot moved around a bit in them. After wearing them almost daily for about 2.5 years, the sole on one of them split across the middle of the footbed. This is what prompted me to buy a new pair. I thought it was a little unusual for Danskos to have this issue and mentioned it to a friend. He said considering how long I've owned them and how often I wore them that I probably got my moneys worth. So I decided to replace them. For my 2nd pair I went for the full grain leather because I like the look better. They look a little dressier and definitely have a similar look to the popular Hasbeens. I can dress them up pretty easily compared to my nubucks, which always felt a little too casual. When my new pair arrived they were EXTREMELY tight - in the toe box and in the heel. So much so, that I thought I was going to have to go up a size. I wore them around the house a bit and to my surprise, they started to stretch out fairly quickly. I was able to wear them to work the next day and they were fine all day. I started with thin socks and gradually worked into thicker ones. What I also really like about the full grain leather is that they hold their shape MUCH better than the nubuck. I kept my old nubuck pair and I wear them when doing projects like painting, etc...since I don't have to worry about them getting ruined. Every time I put them on I realize how much they stretched out. I have to wear really thick socks with them now. Lastly, it's worth pointing out that the full grain does mark-up really easily. They're looking a bit thrashed right now and I've yet to find any care instructions for these on the Dansko website but I'm going to email them. I would recommend both and hopefully my review will help you determine which one would be the best fit for you.

Wow, these really are snug around the instep area! Very cute boot, lovely profile with the hint of a heel look, look awesome with tight pants or skirts. And the length was perfect -- I am a 9 and always wear a 39 in Danskos and length-wise these were right on, with the perfect amount of heel slip for clogs. But these pretty shoes were way too snug for comfort, even with super thin socks, and I have a fairly low instep and very medium width feet. In fact, I agree with those who had trouble getting them on, though I think that would have loosened up in time and a shoehorn helped for now. But I compared these with a different style of Dansko booties I have which I can wear socks with, and these just didn't do it, comfort wise. A larger size would have been too long - they were simply too snug across the toes and instep.

It's like walking on two tiny clouds that make you taller and more stylish. I'm typically a size 6-6.5, and alternate between a 36 and 37 in European sizes. The 36 fits me perfectly with these. I own the black and taupe and love both.

Amazing. I'll start off by saying I wear a US 10 about 99% of the time, but for 15+ years I have worn a 41 in Dansko shoes. So I consider these true to size, as my size has never fluctuated with the brand (41 is sometimes a 10, others 10.5, etc). I definitely do not have narrow feet, and had no problem getting these on. Boots & booties are usually my nemesis, and lots of times feel too tight, but these are PERFECT. I always wear medium width shoes, though I'm on the wider end of a regular foot. As per usual, the comfort and arch support on these is wonderful. I have struggled to find cute shoes the last couple of years, having musculoskeletal issues that make heels impossible. These are a great way to get the style I want, without having to compromise being able to walk. I told my husband I need these in every color I can find!

These Maria booties are my new clogs. I wear them everywhere and all the time. They are comfortable, stylish, and for me, the perfect heel and shaft height. I first bought a pair in the taupe color during the summer and wore them constantly to work because they were so comfortable, they looked great with pants and skirts, and I got a ton of compliments. I loved them so much, I recently bought a second pair in black. I did have an interesting experience with the size between the two pair. I have a high arch and normally wear a size 38, which is the size I bought in both colors. With the taupe pair, the left shoe fit fine, but right shoe felt very narrow, was a little difficult to put on and was a bit uncomfortable when I first starting wearing them. I considered sending them back, but tried wearing them with low cut socks for a while to stretch them out and that seemed to do the trick after a week or so; they've fit fine ever since. I then bought the same size in the black and those were a perfect fit right out of the box. I've been wearing them to work and for play pretty much every day since they arrived. I just love them, especially with long black leggings under a tunic top. They have become part of my fall uniform.

I love these booties! I wear a 9.5 normally, 40 in dansko clogs. I ordered a 40 in the Maria booties, and they seemed to slip around a lot more than my dansko clogs. I ordered a 39, and I expect they will fit just fine when they arrive. Support and comfort is very similar to my dansko clogs.

Love these! Wore them the first day - all day with no problem. Had no issues getting my wider feet into the boot. These are going to be a staple fall/winter shoe (Scotchguard!) and were worth a bit of investment. A great/cheaper alternative to the Swedish boots I had been coveting.

I love these boots. They are so comfortable that I put them on and went to work (standing for 12 hours)! I wear a size 7 shoe but usually to have a bigger boot or sneaker. I got these in a 37 and 38. The 37 fits better and has a smaller ankle opening but the 38 will be good with a heavier sock.

I bought this with some trepidation as other reviews mentioned difficulty getting the boot on. I have not found that to be the case and I have fat ankles. It's not a boot you can just slip into but with minimal effort it's on. I especially like how light weight it is. It looks good, with a tiny bit of edge to it and yet has great arch support. I'm happy with it.

I have problems with almost all shoes because of a broken leg when I was 21. 7 years later it comes along with tendon pain and tightness, plantar fasciitis and sometimes even tightness in my calf. These shoes are amazing, no pain at all worn for more than 12 hours a day. Wore them to thanksgiving, then helped a friend move in them, and today was out all day in them. So comfy and look gets with jeans and t shirt.

Extremely comfortable, very cute boots. There is a zipper to get in and out of them so not sure this is the same model that people have trouble taking on and off. I bought them in the same size as my Dansko clogs and they are huge. Going to try going down a size and hope for the best I guess.

I bought these booties for a trip to London. I knew I would be walking a ton, it isn't quite sandal weather there but not winter boot season either, and I have loved Danskos in the past on trips with a lot of walking. These did not disappoint. Based on other reviews, I ordered one size up from my usual size, and they were just right. They are a little bit tough to pull on, so the extra room was welcome, and I had room for socks. I walked many miles each day over cobblestone streets, city sidewalks, and parks, and these booties handled it all. The taupe color is lovely for spring, as well!

I JUST GOT THESE AND LOVE THEM. I didn't have any trouble getting my feet in them (I was worried, since other reviewers said they did, but Dansko must have fixed this). They're super comfy. I wear a 9.5-10 in most shoes but have Dankso Professional clogs in a 42 so got a 42 in these also. They fit great--roomy, but I'd rather have that than too small. This way my thick winter socks can fit if necessary. I ripped the box open and put these on to try them on, and I haven't taken them off! So cute and comfy. Now I want them in all the colors!!! And love the SUPERFAST Zappos shipping

I’ve owned these for three seasons now. Love the natural colored heel with the black. They are my go to shoe for winter as I dress in dark colors. Good for dressing up or down. Very comfortable.
