Hello Ladies and Gents,

What is one’s opinion if you see a man wearing a Dansko shoes?

I’m thinking of trying it out since I have been wearing running/sneaker shoes for the past so and so years now?

I've been hearing good reviews from my female colleagues on their comfort.  I would say if they are comfortable and professional looking then go for it.

For me personally I would just go with a black one rather than something loud or with big heels.  Hope that doesn't sound phobic towards non-binary looks, but that's just me.  

But to answer your question what do I think if I see a man in them.  Nothing much.  I've seen a couple of men that work in the OR wearing them and I barely take notice.

My opinion of a man wearing Daskos? Much better than my opinion of anyone wearing crocs 😉

Seriously, wear whatever you find comfy. I did not like that particular brand as I have super wide feet and they all run narrow in my experience.

I have worn both Danskos and Crocs, I prefer hiking boots or running shoes, clean and black.

Please educate me. Are Danskos considered a "woman's" shoe or something like that?

Danskos sure do look like women's shoes, but men wear them at the hospitals I work at. 

If they were comfortable I would wear them, they make me feel like it would be easy to twist my ankle, no support

You nailed it! If anything, are they meant or designed just for women?

Well, Dansko has an entire section of men's shoes, so of course not. https://www.dansko.com/all-mens-shoes

That he’s either a nurse or a chef.
