    I have had my dansko's for 6 years...and they are just as comfortable as the day I got them. I'm on a BUSY surgical floor doing 12 hour shifts and they are great!

    I bought a pr of danskos a couple wks ago and i told the ppl in the store i dont have an arch in my foot and they recommended the danskos. but by the time i wore them for an hour or two, i was ready to cut my feet off. they blistered my feet so bad! so they let me get a store credit and i am going to go back in a few mnths when the new store opens and see if they have a better selection. i may try the birkenstocks. someone recommended those to me. i dunno though, since idont have an arch. anyone have any suggestions?? thanks

    I don't have any arch either; I haven't tried the Birkenstock clogs but I absolutely love my sandals!

    i have low arches and bilateral plantar fascitis...birks are the only shoes that i have been able to wear..this, after i invested hundreds of dollars in different shoes, clogs, and orthotics...

    now i have birks in loafers and other styles to wear outside of work..

    best purchase i have ever made.

    I have the Merrell Jungle Mocs also, and I love them!! They are so light and comfy!! I have another pair of Merrells that I wear outside of work that are great too.

    I couldn't wear Dansko's...the heel on them is too high for me, kept twisting my ankles.:imbar

    I haven't had any problems with twisting my ankles when I wore the dansko's, suprisingly enough seeing as how I turn my ankles in when I walk. But I'll gladly buy another pair of Merrels.

    I am ordering a pair of Birkie clogs even as we speak.....

    I have Birkie clogs, Anywears clogs, and am planning on getting Danskos soon...all closed-back shoes. Much more comfy than tennis shoes, I think.

    I wear Danskos and love 'em. I have very high arches and narrow feet. I have also found Birks to be very comfortable, especially since over time they mold to the contours of your feet. I can stand on Birks all day and not have sore feet.

    I wear danskos to work and absolutely love them. My feet hardly ever hurt at the end of a shift. I tried Birkenstocks prior to Danskos and they are just not as comfortable.
