    Danskos are between $80-$130ish dollars. BUT my first pair lasted me 7 years. I now have two other pair I wear and honestly, they are the only shoes that don't make me feet scream in pain at night after a days wear.

    I love my Alegrias. Nice and cushy, you can replace the insoles as they wear out and they come in some great colors/patterns. And, they aren't as high as Danskos so if you have problems with turning your ankle (I do) they might be a good option.

    Danskos, hands down. Its the only shoe that I can wear where my feet, knees and back dont kill me after a 12h shift. They are totally worth the investment.

    I also tried them, but they didn't have the style I wanted in my size but the price was the same as Danskos. Only white for us and they only had the mary jane style

    I did like the soles of them..

    I swear by my new balance tennis shoes. I cannot wear Danskos because I have completely flat feet. I had a pair I could never get used to.

    I really like Alegrias - they have this rocker sole (not flat) that helps me stand up straighter and relieve back pressure...I have a horrid posture when standing and walking. Sometimes I switch it up by wearing my Danksos, but after about two nights in a row wearing those babies my back and neck are really hurting.

    In my opinion buy whatever sneakers you want and then buy REALLY good insoles. I have $40 sketchers and $50 insoles but I think danskos are uncomfortable and not worth the money.
