I never write reviews first of all. I am on my feet for 8 plus hours a day, normally walk about 8-9 miles when I work which is why I purchased these shoes. I ordered a pair of SAS brand shoes and had to send them back because they did not work for me. I wore these for the first time for an 8 hour shift and my feet didn't hurt at all. They have the non-slip bottom which is a plus. No break in period needed. I love them and am thinking about ordering another pair to have as a back up!!! Great Shoe!!!!

These shoes are really comfortable. They have good arch support for my plantar fascitis and have a good comfortable feel. They have a roomy toebox and are durable. The non-slip bottom is good as well.

Please, please, please make these in more colors!! I love the Ellie. I have tried on COUNTLESS shoes!! UPS and USPS think I have a foot fetish!! At LONG LAST, a shoe for the office that isn't a tennis shoe and doesn't slip off my foot, AND supports my arches. Tell Dansko they must offer Ellie in more colors!!!? ??????

My shoe size hovers between a European size 39 and 40 although my American size is 9. I chose the 40 (9.5 -10) for these shoes and they fit fine. These shoes accommodate my narrow heel without any slippage. I have a narrow foot but need a larger/taller toe box and these shoes work just fine. They are my second pair and are now my go to shoes for comfort and good looks. Most Dansko shoes I am familiar with do not have a high luster shine, and these are the same, but the finish has held up for a year without any special care. I wear these shoes several times a week - through rain, snow and sunshine - only because I have been caught in these conditions at one time or another, and a quick swipe with a rag has had them looking just fine again.

These shoes felt great right out of the box. The heel was a little stiff, but after a couple of days they were fine. I put them on and worked on my feet for 8 hours at least. And I was busy. Great shoes and they do not slip at all.

I was very disappointed by these Dansko shoes. After hearing for years about how comfortable they are for women who work on their feet all day, I decided to give this pair a try. I was not impressed by the materials. They seemed like cheap, light-weight materials. I was willing to get past that if they felt good on my feet, but unfortunately, they are poorly made. The detail seam at the back of the shoe is stitched over the top rim of the shoe and rubs against my heel when I take a step. I really expected a much better padded heel rim. I certainly didn't expect the stitching to rub my ankles on shoes that are supposedly such high quality and comfortable. Thank you Zappos for your wonderful return policy. It was an easy decision to return these.

These shoes turned out even better than anticipated. Light weight, no breaking in for me at all. They are snug putting your foot in as other reviewers have stated, but not an issue once your foot is in. The toe bed has more room then I thought it would. Very good for working on my feet at the restaurant. I always pair my work shoes with Sorbothane ultrasole insoles (Amazon $20) and change them for new ones every 4-6 months. Worth the extra cost to make the shoes last and my knees happy. All in all great shoes that I would but again.

This shoe exceeded my expectations. I am a size 10 and worried about the new sizing, i.e. 9 1/2 to 10, but the fit perfect!!! Like a glove! I need stability as well and while I will miss all my Dansko clogs, I can’t risk my ankle tipping out of them anymore. These are PERFECT!!!

This shoe fits beautifully on my hard-to-fit feet. The style is classic. The quality is excellent. I am very happy with this purchase.

I have been looking for a pair of non-slip work shoes which fit my foot, don't weigh a ton, and are attractive. Finally found these & love them! Comfortable right from the box (more so than the similar SAS pair which cost much more). Only hitch is I need a bit more arch support, but inserts will take care of that. Happy feet + happy legs = happy me!

I love the style. Would be a keeper, but the 38 is approximately a half size too large. The 37 was too small. Need half-sizes, Dansko.

Still looking. I am wearing ancient Riekers that are no longer made. Wish they would.

I have been wearing these shoes for almost a week now. I love them. So light and comfortable right out of the box. These are my first Dansko but I do not think it will be my last.

Love this shoe, but 38 too big and 37 too small. For this shoe I fall right in between European sizes. So sad...Please Dansko, half sizes?

This shoe is extremely comfortable. However, I had an issue with the heel slipping. I feel sizing down would make the shoe too tight to wear with a winter sock, so I am returning it.

I purchase a pair of these shoes about 15 years ago. I absolutely loved them. When I searched the web and found Zappos and they had the same style, I had to order a new pair for dress. They require no break in and are so comfortable. Best shoes for me ever!

I have not quite made up my mind about these shoes. They felt large, but were better after adding some arch support inserts, which made them fit much better and made them more comfortable. I love the style, so I hope they work out.

Dansko is a favorite brand of mine. This shoe proved true to the expected comfort of a Dansko. However, this one is lacking in the style department. Recently I have purchased Danskos that were very stylish. I hope they continue that trend. I'm sending them back.

I purchased a pair of Dansko shoes years ago that were similar to the Ellie style and have been trying to replace them ever since. These shoes are very lightweight, easy to slide into and have a textured sole that looks like it would resist slipping. The leather is smooth and the padding around the ankle is comfortable. However, I have complicated feet and these just didn't feel as comfortable as my previous Dansko's. These shoes could be perfect for you, but I will have to continue my search. Thanks, Zappos!

This shoe is narrow for a Dansko, which is what I was hoping for with my narrow feet. It might feel too narrow for people with "normal" feet. It is quite comfortable, typical of Dansko. Good arch support. The style is simple, but less clunky than a clog. I plan to wear with jeans or casual pants.

I bought this shoe and the Dansko Patti. This shoe has a firmer sole, wider heel, and higher toe box. I thought this was a nice looking shoe. I recommend using a shoehorn to put on this shoe since the goring doesn’t stretch much. The insole is flat so there seems to be minimal arch support, In my review I wrote no arch support since Dansko is usually generous in arch support.
