Service Industry MUST

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Let's be honest, I am a ski bum. I ski from 8am-3pm everyday throw some dry shampoo in my hair and show up to wait tables half way out of my snow pants.

The Dansko Clog is a MUST for anyone who works in the service industry. When your feet have been crammed in your ski boots all day they can finally relax with an amazing amount of arch support and a roomie toe-box (no more 92mm crap here).

Yes they are pricey, but you won't regret it.

I am a 7.5 and wear a 38!

I love Sanita and Dansko but. . .

Dansko is winning with me. Sanita hurt my feet like crazy until I broke them in. Dansko didn't hurt at all. Granted, my Sanitas are one of my favorite shoes now but, I discovered today that they have cracked soles horizontally across the ball of the foot. I expected more from Sanita seeing as they are the original and they're not made in China and everything else. Oh and I've only had my Sanita pair for 5 months. And they're disintegrating on part of the heel sole. Did I just get a bad pair? Or maybe it's because I live in a hot desert. I don't know. Hopefully I'll have better luck with my Danskos. They may have been made in China but they're working better for me at the moment than Sanita. We'll see.

I love my danskos, but the sole on both shoes cracked on the bottom, balls of my feet area, straight across. I would love it get them replaced or fixed. Any suggestions???

Hey Theresa,

If you got these from us and you are still valid to return them under our return policy then please set up a Return Merchandise Authorization number within the original order or give one of our Gearheads a call and they will be more than happy to help you.

Otherwise, you might want to contact Dansko directly to see if their is a way to repair your existing shoes. Otherwise, I do not thing they will replace them as their warranty only covers manufacture defects and not regular wear.

Responded on

I landed on this thread bc I pulled out my Danskos, which are a few years old, and have not been worn much at all--same thing: the soles are disintegrating, with cracks across the balls of the soles!

Is this 38M or 38 Narrow?

Perfect for all-day on your feet workers

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have owned a pair of Cabrio Professional Clogs for years and wore them from time to time, however when I began waitressing, I purchased a new pair in a size up and absolutely love them. I have collapsed arches, a bunion from breaking my foot years ago and calsifications from climbing. My feet have seen better days and there are VERY few shoes that I can wear all day long. The Professional Cabrio are one of those few pairs and wouldn't trade them in for anything. I have the Black Cabrio and it looks very professional, doesn't scuff and are easy to clean.
I am a steady size 7 and wear a 37. I can fit into a 36 but find that my toes rub after a while. The 37 is perfect.

I LOVE the comfort of the danskos and the look of my mary janes. 11 years old +-
The leather upper is in great shap, but the soles arerecently falling apart and crumbling, even after really good storage.I thought)
I have worn them less than 40 least it's been years, but I want the soles replaced and ofcourse I'd pay..
guess you have to get "fresh" ones from the company itself.

I had a pair of Dansko shoes and I loved them. I wore them at several times and don't want to wear them out. Then at last I wore them and went to somewhere. I got so embarrassed to find out the heels crumpling apart all over the floor. What caused that heels fallen apart? Is that came from a shoe storage that made of plastic as well as a chemical substance that effected the heels?

Responded on

Same experience. But so far there is hope for repair. I keep hoping!

Comfy shoe

Bought these for sister's birthday so she can wear them to work. Said they were a bit loose so she had to play around with thicker socks but her feet don't hurt as much.

I have had my Dansko professionals for about a year now. I usually wear them all winter. My right shoe now feels so big that I feel like I am curling my toes when I walk. Do they stretch that much? My right foot is my larger foot. I am so not wanting this to be!

Responded on

The Cabrio's material does stretch, but I'm not sure they stretch THAT much. In my experience they do not stretch as much as the Oiled Professional.

If you purchased from Backcountry, I suggest "chatting" with a rep. Perhaps you'd be interested in exchanging for a new pair?

Responded on

Try Sizers for shoes that are a little too loose.
They are shoe sizing insert cushions specifically designed to resize your shoes. An amazing invention. I bring mine with me when i shoe shop now.

Excellent Shoes

These clogs got my wife through her medical residency and fellowship, both of which required her to stand and walk for hours on end. She absolutely swears by them (compared to other shoes, they helped reduce stress/pain in her feet, knees and back).

Great shoes!

Been wearing the Dansco Cabrio professionals for a few weeks now and my feet are feeling so much better. The running shoes I was wearing previously were only lasting a couple of months and at over $100 a pair, were getting way too expensive. I did have to send the first pair back because the size recommended were too small, but Backcountry was very quick @ shipping. And now I can wear my custom orthotics, too. Backcountry was very easy to work with and I loved the live chat feature!

I need advice....

I just got a really great deal on brand new Dansko Professional Clogs off eBay. When I went to try them on it was much "harder" and "stiffer" than any other shoe I have ever worn. The length is great and I understand they should slip a little on your heel...which they do (something to get used to). My concern is how tight they feel on the sides and the top. I have really high arches and I have read on other posts that could be a reason it is tight on the top of the foot. I'm hoping after "breaking in" the shoes the leather will stretch and not feel so stiff. Should I just give it time or do I need a bigger size. I bought a 38 and I normally wear 7.5-8 in everyday shoes....sometimes 8.5 depending on the cut of the shoe, but I didn't buy a 39 because I know I cannot wear size 9 shoes. Help??

Responded on

I would definitely give them time, I have worn Danskos for 15 years and especially the professionals, they are very hard. I always thought they were too wide on the sides and top, and I have high arches too, but they will definitely get looser, to the point of probably getting too loose after a while. The Oiled clogs are softer and easier to wear imo, and the patents have been the worst for me. I stopeed buying the stiff ones, which stretched out to the point I couldnt wear them. I buy the oiled or the canvas type Danskos now, because they're still my favourite footbed of all time. So my advice is just wait a while, they shouldnt pinch after a while, depending on how often you wear them, but wear them as often as possible to break them in if you can, even inside the house.

Responded on

Mae, I hope your shoes are working out for you now. I normally wear Dansko professional shoes in a 36 (I normally wear a 6-6.5). However, the 36 in the Cabrio Professional was too small (toes were crowded) and the 37 was too big (shoe came completely off when I walked). Answer- 37 narrow. Fits perfectly! It seems that this Cabrio shoe has such stiff leather, it just really hurt my little toes if I wore my "normal" size.

I just bought two pairs of danskos because they feel so comfortable when have them on. But, when I take them off at the end of the day, the sides of my left foot and even my left calf really hurts. I am worried that my calf hurts because this sounds like a position of the foot problem? Once I put on my sneakers on for a day, I am fine.

Best Answer Responded on

Mary, the shoes could be causing a pronation problem and putting your foot into a bad position. You could try some insoles and if they do not help I would suggest returning the shoes.

Responded on

If this is your first pair of Dansko's it may take a little time to get use to the support. Dansko has some of the best support in the industry and some peoples body need to adjust for support. I would not recommend putting more support in the shoes as it will change support and fit. I would recommend having a shoe store stretch the leather a little on the side you are having the discomfort and see if that will put your foot into a better postion. Some peoples feet need to adjust to the fantastic support that come in the Dansko. This shoe has them most support in the industry and some people body need to adjust to this. I know because I went through it my first time.
Also the cabrio leather is great but it can take time to loosen up as it is a little stiffer at first. I hope this helps out.

what size do i order if i usually wear a size 7 in regular shoes?

37. In my experience, half-sizes should order a size up.

Responded on

For half sizers, use a 1/2 Sizer and size up. Get them from They are shoe sizing insert cushions. Perfect for loose shoes, if you are between sizes or if you want to wear the next size up.

I just bought my first pair of Dansko Professional clogs. I bought a size 38 because I normally wear 7-7.5. They were huge! I returned them for a size 37, which still feel very loose. I can get two fingers all the way around my toe and they are not snug at all when putting them on. I know Danskos are supposed to fit loose, but isn't that too loose? I can't believe I would need a size 36 which is recommended for sizes 5.5-6! Maybe I need a narrow version?

Responded on

I usually wear a 6.5 and the 36 fit perfect...37 was definitely too big for me! It did take a few weeks of constant wearing to break them in though...

Responded on

Dansko Professionals should not be snug. There should be some movement or "slip" on the back. There should be no rubbing of your heel on the back, yet it should not be so loose that your heel completely comes out of the shoe. Figure that you should be able to start to fit your finger in between your heel and the back of the clog.

Responded on

I like Amanda Roper's sizing tips for another user's question.

I do not think they should be snug -- particulary if they are "almost uncomfortable." A little snug by the metatarsals is okay, because that area of the clog will stretch. The clog should not be snug at the heel.

Responded on

You just need Sizers. Put a pair in and your shoes will fit perfectly. They are fantastic for buying shoes online as if they are a little loose you can use Sizers and keep the shoes.

Just say no to Dansko unfortunately...

I LIVED in my Dansko clogs for the past 14 yrs -- not the same pair of course, but I could get a good 2 yrs out of a pair as they were made incredibly well. I'm on my feet all day at work, and the support and comfort these provided were worth every penny -- like as comfortable as bare feet once they were broken in. I had to purchase a new pair recently; same ones i always get. This Dansko company is insulting my intelligence; these are not even close to the same shoes. I guess the leather's been replaced by PLASTIC, because they're so stiff I got a black toenail. And that's after using liquid shoe stretch -- which only works on leather, so the plastic was immune. They pinch my feet -- all i wanna do is sit and then take them off! I never even used to think about my feet, now they're constantly bothering me at work. And the soles squeak on the hospital floors, where they used to be silent. Again, plastic. I have since heard Dansko sold the company and the shoes are now being made in China, so mystery solved. But i'm SO disappointed, I wasted $100.00, and I now need to find another daily shoe after all these years. I need an authentic company that still takes pride in their product and is not trying to cheat the loyal consumers. They used to be the best, but now honestly, these shoes are a shell of what they used to be. THE WORST!

Responded on

I, too, was a loyal customer of Dankso Clogs and always wore the oiled "work" clog. I actually wore them for about 15 years. I wore them almost every day. Then, about 18 months ago, I purchased two new pairs, both of which had been made in China. Both pairs of clogs killed me, in spite of my vigilant efforts to try to get used to them. I found the leather to be very hard and unforgiving and impossible to break in. The part of the clog over the instep was higher up, than my old pairs and hit me my foot at a very uncomfortable place. In one pair, one shoe was markedly smaller than the other. It took my feet months to recover from wearing these shoes!! I miss my OLD Danksos (the ones made in Poland, and before that in Denmark), very much, but will never attempt to wear this line again.

Responded on

You may want to look into Sanita shoes. They made the "old style" Danskos. [See my response to V Putala's question.]

Responded on

The old Dansko shoes were made by Sanita, and Sanita is now making them and selling them under their own name. Dansko had a distribution agreement with Sanita which ended in 2007. Dansko claims that they have made "improvements" over the old design (my guess is that because of the patent they couldn't exactly replicate the Sanita clogs), but according to everything I have heard, that is no where near true. I am going to stick with Sanita.

Here is some info I found about it.

How long should Dansko's last? Today my...

How long should Dansko's last? Today my sole cracked in half. I'm so sad because I don't have the money to replace them right now. When I initially bought them I found out about 6 months later that I was sold the wrong size. They really should be replaced anyway, but I'm just curious to know the lifespan of these wonderful shoes. Does anyone know if Dansko will replace shoes for this problem?

Responded on

Im so sorry to hear about your unfortunate Dansko incident. As far as the sizing being wrong, that definitely has been known to happen given the nature of these shoes, so at least in the future you know which size you are supposed to have. As for your bigger problem of having the sole crack, that is quite unusual as far as I know. Your best bet would be to call Dansko and let them know what has happened. Most people I know have these shoes for years (5 or 6 at least) before the start to see any kind of wear on them.

Just to give you a hand, here is the number to Dansko's customer service: 1-800-326-7564

Hope that helps.

I believe long periods of high heat weaken the initegrity of dansko soles (and other brands that use similar 'rubber' material). I sold two pairs of dansko professionals that arrived to buyers with soles coming to pieces, and both were sold in the hottest of summer. Also, I bought a pair of Romika shoes, left them in the car during August for about five hours...the soles literally crumbled apart the same days. Solution: never expose those shoes to very high heat for extended periods. I consider this a flaw in the manufacture of those shoes, and the sellers should warn prospective buyers.

Responded on

I love Dansko's but unfortunately I have had two separate soles crack in half. Not sure how long I had them, several years, but I am disappointed this has happened twice. This has also happened to my sister. I have never left my Dansko's out in the heat and we do not have hot summers here.

Responded on

No shoes should fall apart when they are new or old. The materials that the manufacturer is using is cheap materials. They should have more pride in their products.
