    OMG, I hated those Dansko cloggs! They were so uncomfortable, they have absolutely no cushion and like someone else said they rubbed a permanent mark on the top of my feet right above the bone. I felt like I was clumping around in them all day. You have to have extremely hard feet or work somewhere there are carpets or short shifts because they will kill your feet. I work 7 am - 7:30 pm shifts and by half way through, I wanted to take them off. I just bought Birkenstocks and so far they are much more comfortable, plus they have alot of different styles so you can have cushion or no cushion. Other than that, NurseMates are good too I think. You would think for all that money, the Dansko's would have been good, but no.

    I have been wearing Dansko clogs for a long time - I love love love them! I wear them everywhere, although I have just started branching out and have some primo by Clarks which I really like too.

    I love my Danskos so much that I talked my mother into buying some - she HATES them. She says she has a high arch and they are not comfortable at all.

    My Danskos did not require any "break in" time.

    Wearing Dansko clogs cured my Plantar Fasciitis. Yes..... Cured it. Pain went away after about 4 weeks. I ONLY wore Dansko at work and home. You know
    there is nothing nice about a nurse with painful feet.

    I don't wear Dansko but I do wear New Balance as I have had foot Dr's tell me that they are the best shoe for your feet for lots of walking, etc. They require no breaking in.

    I used to only wear Nike before this for the same reason- no breaking in was required.

    I just bought a pair of Danskos clogs because I have wide feet. They have a hard sole, and at first it felt like I was walking on concrete the entire shift! Got to the car, and in the back seat they went...never to be worn again.:grn:
    I've been told that they have to be broken in, and after that, you'll never want another shoe. I have worn them since...I bought gel insoles and a shoe stretcher.:hehe:

    I love my Dansko's I have many pairs and have been wearing them for about 15 years. I have worn clogs all my life and like the flexible sole the best. I also go to a store and try in pairs. They are hand made - all natural glue etc, so I might by a left from one box and a right from the other. I also wear Sigvaris or Mediven compression stockings during my shift as I stand most of the night and sometimes sit on that rare break.
    I have tried Klogs and they're okay, my feet burn. Crocs give me shin splints. I have a pair of MBT's that I like - but only if I've had enough sleep the day before. (I'm a night nurse). The MBT's made me feel dizzy the first 4 hrs and then it took about 5 shifts to feel okay.
    Hands down, Dansko's win the day.

    After all these wonderful reviews, i am planning to purchase a pair of danskos. But can anyone tell me what the difference between the narrow and regular fit for the dansko professional white shoe is?( and has anyone ever ordered them from I just dont want to exchange them and go through the entire hassle.

    Thanks in advance,
