the foot ware are so cumphy meeeeeeeeeee.
talk to next year
is mise le mase,
When I'm not skiing like a total bad ass- I'm just busy being a total bad ass that saves lives at the local ER. I am constantly moving, and on my feet all day long. These shoes make sweet, sweet love to my feet whenever I wear them. Sure it would be great to wear some flashy Nikes to work...But have you ever needed to clean barf off of your flashy Nikes? Well this guy has. Bullet proof design and obviously impervious to all sorts of gross wet stuff. Your feet will love you for it.
Dansko from China
I wont order on line again. I paid alot for China Danskos (The dye is comming off after 2 wares) and my other pair dont say were they were made and kill my feet!
Great Shoes If You Have To Stand A Lot
I'm 61 years old, a little over weight. I have to do a lot of standing for my job. I use special socks that apply pressure to help my feet from getting tired.
These shoes are amazing. My feet still get tired but not 'aching', 'hurting' tired compared to other shoes I used. Also, as soon as I take off the shoes after a very long day of standing, the aching goes a way a lot faster, again compared to the previous shoes I used to wear.
I wouldn't recommend buying these if you're going to be doing a lot of walking on uneven terrain. The shoes have a very high platform and I found them a little awkward to walk with at first. I tend to pronate, stepping on the outside of my foot.
But after a month now, I'm getting used to walking with them on a smooth flat surface.
One of the nicest things about these shoes is the ease of kicking them off and slipping them on. Great if you live in a country were you have to take your shoes off before entering a room.
Finally, I'd like to thank Back Country for being one of the few stores that provide International Shipping. I did have to pay about $40 in Duty. But the other store required me to drop a $50 additional fee to cover Duty with the order.
And the shipment was received in 8 days. (US to Japan).
Summary: Great for people who have to stand in one place for long periods of time, and walk on smooth surfaces.
Wouldn't recommend using for travel where you'll be doing a lot of walking.
My normal shoe size is 10 these shoes were size 44. Fit very nicely and look great with men's business slacks.
i enjoy the clogs. i lived in DENMARK for 2 years and DANSKO actually is 2 words put together Dansk & Sko...which is danish shoe translated. it's weird that they actually don't even carry them in denmark hahaha. however, they export them everywhere else. i prefer ones with actual wooden soles, they are incredibly comfy. and great actually for leaving on your doorstep to go do chores or gardening or whatever. not meant for hiking by all means. but easy to slip on and off.
The Most Comfortable Shoes On The Planet!
Several years ago my girlfriend bought me my first pair of Danskos (the oiled black Professional). It was love at first try on. The amazing comfort was beyond belief - almost like getting the greatest foot massage by the best masseuse ever! Since then I've been so hooked that I went out on my own and bought three new pairs of the Dansko Pro (the oiled brown, black cabrio and, my new fav, the cordovan cabrio). They have become my everyday shoe as they go with just about any pair of casual cotton pants, jeans or shorts.
The one thing to be aware of, however, is that for some unknown reason Dansko recently made a slight change to their Professional line of clogs by making them with less space in the instep so that there might be some tightness in this area for most men's feet. This might necessitate going up one size from what you normally get. If you do that you should be OK. Also, because of having less space in the instep of newer Danskos, unlike the older version which were instantly amazingly comfortable from the moment you first tried them on, it might take up to a week of continual wear and breaking them in to get to that point - more so with the cabrio leathers than with the oiled leathers.
One final thing you should also be ready for is that you will get a lot of (overwhelmingly positive) comments and compliments on your Danskos - particularly from women! Who knew there were chicks out there who dig guys wearing clogs?!
Why didn't we buy these sooner?
Bought these for my husband who's on his feet lots - and he LOVES them. He never knew feet could feel so good after a full days-worth of standing! He did comment that they weren't the best for walking long distances...but otherwise they're very worth the money.
I want a pair for myself!
Great for Standing
I accidentally got these shoes a bit too big but they still work. I however am not able to run in them as I am not used to shoes that have a sole bigger than .5 inches so I tend to sprain my ankles combined with the fact they are too big to begin with. I have had them for 3 years and use them 3-4 times a week at work. My job requires us to be standing for very long periods of time and these puppies help us from not getting back problems or sore feet at the end of standing for 8 hours.
Only the best shoes ever!!!
These clogs are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. This will be my second pair. I first wore them as a restaurant cook. I can be on my feet for 14 hours without leg/back/foot pain. My first pair lasted 2 years, well worth the money. They're like giving your feet a hug.
not made like they used to
i tried to get another pair of these shoes because the ones that i have are awesome. i ordered the exact size and style. when they arrived i was very disappointed. the original pair was made in denmark. the new pair was made in china. no comparison. i sent them back and am still wearing the first pair
The Best Shoe!
I now have a black and brown pair. I live in these shoes because they are so comfortable! The high arch support really soothes my feet when I am on them all day. They are stylish enough for business casual and for everday. Also the way they are rounded at the bottom I can run in them if I had too. Extremely comfortable,the best shoe I have invested in!
Stop whining about bad shoes.
Okay these are incredible. I have a wider foot so they do run narrow. I got a size larger and they still fit a bit narrow, but after two days they stretched out enough to be the main shoe I wear now. The extra length is not an issue as it hugs and fits over the top of the foot and not around the toe box at all.
I love the fact that they are so tough. the rocker bottom is a great help for a lot of movement on these guys and If you are not wearing these on your feet all day, what are you doing with yourself?
The high arch support is great, but if you have never worn Chacos, or these, the first week your feet get tired after about 3-4 hours so give it some time. I love that I can return them to this site if I do get the wrong size as these are Euro sizing. The chart helps but I got two pair just in case and got the best fit.
I have worn these over icy roads and walkways this winter, and though the tread is not ideal (actually almost slippery) I was far more balanced on these than any others so I never had any spills. compare that to a few others I had this winter before (the Danskos) that the icy campus I go to had butt marks all over from me.
Now all I wear are Chacos in the summer and Dansko in the winter!
All you high arches, buy this shoe!
I typically have a problem with finding shoes that support my arches enough. I usually put inserts in the shoes that I wear often. These shoes however, are the pinnacle of comfort. I slipped my foot into this shoe and felt like I had formed it to my own foot. The best part is that it continued to form to my foot each time I wear them. They are actually really cute with a nice pair of trousers and I don't look as much like a nurse as I thought I would. I'm pretty sure that people with flat feet would find these shoes quite painful but if you have an arch, especially a high one, this is a great shoe. The other thing that I really like about these is the comfortable heel support. You'd have a hard time complaining about foot pain after a day on these.

We had to go up a size to account for width.

What is the difference between the Cabrio and the Dansko Professional Oiled Casual Clog ?
Nothing in construction. They are the same feel, but different look. I have the Cabrios and they are "shinier" leather where the oiled are a "fuzzier" leather. The funny thing is it sounds like it should be the other way, but whatevs. Sidenote, if you have not had Danskos, size up since the fit is more of a Euro fit and you wan the heel to not be touching the back on these.Actually, there is a difference in heel height in the 3 models. The Cabrios have a 2" heel, the oiled finish has a 1 3/4" heel, and the regular "Professional" has a 1 1/2" heel. Some people claim there are quality differences, w/ the oiled and cabrio models being better, but I don't know how true that is.

These shoes are made in China.
is it a tight fit
is it a tight fit
At your size shoe, most likely. These are a Euro fit which actually is very different than to what we are used to. I sized up one whole size, so in Eu sizes 2, and they fit great. The idea is when you put them on you will have a space behind the heel. It usually is about one pinky width. Other than that these are the greatest shoes!
