I’m a longtime Dansko wearer, but was looking for something a little less expensive but just as comfortable. I decided on these based on all the great reviews. They were super comfortable. I’m on my feet all day and they weren’t in pain or tired by the end of the day. I really liked these, until I noticed they were cracking and coming undone. The sole was coming unglued around the toe box and starting along the sides. Lesson learned, stick with what you know. Unless you want to buy new shoes every 3 months. I get a good 12-18 months out of a pair of Dansko’s, wearing them 8 hours everyday! New ones arrived yesterday!

These fit really well, and they were comfy. I returned them because of the four pairs that I ordered I liked the Chaco shoe a little better. I think the bright white was just a little too much for me.

This wasn’t quite comfortable for me because the insole was too sculpted for a high arch. Too bad, it’s cute. But I did take cue from previous reviewer and they do run small, so I went a size up and that worked.

These run too high in the arch for me and the heel goes below the foot like Earth Shoes. Not comfy for my very flat feet.

Awesome shoe for walking a lot even after toe surgery. Stretchy side gives room for swelling. Thank you Zappos for your awesome service and understanding!

I was so excited to find a slip on shoe that I could wear to work that was slip resistant. I used to by Propet shoes before I changed jobs but now that I do more walking outside while on the job that soles wear out so quickly. The shoes are prettier than I expected. I work in a business casual setting so I didn't need anything too fancy. Today is the first day I have worn them and I am super happy so far. The only negative I can say at this time is that they were a little difficult to put on with the socks I usually wear, mid-weight. If I changed to a trouser sock it might have been easier. However, when I got them on they are so comfortable. Lightweight yet they appear to be quality made with durable materials. Only time will tell if they are worth the price.

Would accommodate orthotics; however, they just appeared too large and clumsy for my taste. I have found comfortable shoes that are more stylish.

These shoes fit well, I got them because they came in a wide. Material is soft and better arch support than most sneakers. After the third time wearing these my left foot became a bit achey by the end of my 12 hour shift, so I will buy extra arch supports so I can continue to wear.

Biggest issue- they squeak. Where the leather rubs against leather (tongue area), they squeak; I hope this goes away. Additionally, one heel edge digs in my Achilles tendon; this could be me though.

I like these reasonably well. I work on my feet in a manufacturing facility and these are pretty comfortable. I might still notice my feet at the end of a long day, but overall I'm pleased with these

These shoes are a smidge too small but I'm hoping they'll settle in after some wearing.One thing I don't like: they squeak when I walk.

Love these shoes! Every time I wear them I get compliments on how fun and cool they look. They are dressy enough to wear with my slacks to work or dressy jeans on a night out. My feet love them. The first 2 times wearing I had a lot of foot and leg fatigue. Now I feel great. I stand 10 hrs and walk 10,000 plus steps at work each day so these shoes have been a huge find. I noticed the days I don’t wear the nursemates brand my feet are so much more tender and my calves and joints are more achy. I needed to have dressier shoes instead of always wearing orthotic or fitness shoes so I will be back looking for any updated color choices. I would buy another pair right away.

The first 2 times I wore them I felt some fatigue in my feet and legs due to the change in my alignment from the show and now I can’t believe what I was wearing before. I can feel the improvement in my feet, knees and hips after I spend 12 hrs in these shoes. I like that they look stylish enough that I don’t feel like I am walking around with a shoe that is obviously for older people or people on their feet all day. The colors are on trend enough that I feel like I got a cute shoe that happens to have great support

Cute shoes, I’ve always liked Nurse Mates. But these are ,maybe, a 1/2” too high, putting too much pressure on my forefoot for a 12 hr day. They’re ok the first 4-5 hours, then my forefoot started to get uncomfortable. Unfortunately, I bought (and wore) them in two diff colors. I’m going to try some inserts I bought for high heels to see if I’ll get some relief.?

Size was as expected, fit is fabulous. Lightweight and slightly more feminine than Danskos, these shoes are super comfortable and so far have withstood scuffs. I chose solid black, and the only complaint I have is that the cushy interior is light brown - so when I wear them with black tights and a dress, you can see the interior of the shoe. The interior, or at least the lip of the foot opening, needs to be black.

Cute shoes but they killed my feet. I had them on for about 4 hours and my feet were dying. Had to return them.

I ordered this pair last Monday and it arrived Wednesday. Since I was working, I decided to wear it... the fit was true to size and it really looked good on my feet... but then work is always busy and this turned out to be the most uncomfortable nursing shoes I've ever worn. All night long I was miserable and by the time I got home, I was feeling all kinds of aches and pains on my feet. Really a waste of my money. If I could return this, I would!

Well the shoe overall is very attractive but feels the same to me unfortunately as any Dansko clog does, uncomfortable and stiff. I ordered an 8.5 and the left foot was bigger than the right and kept slipping off my heel. I tried to wear double socks but it was not comfortable. Also, the left shoe also had a loose decorative buckle and would jingle every time I took a step.

I was really hopeful that these would replace my 5-year old Danskos. Unfortunately, the arch in the right shoe hit my foot in the wrong place. Also, the brown interior of the shoes shows around the edges. Thank heavens Zappos has such an easy return process!

I tried the shoes on as soon as I got them. Easy to put on. This is a big deal for me. I need them to be slip-on and easy to slip on. I got distracted at that point and have worn them all afternoon, forgetting that I had new shoes on and at the end of the day my feet do not want their freedom. The shoes are ever so comfortable.

I’ve been wanting vans for as long as I can remember but heard they have no support. When I saw these I had to try them. I’m a true wide and they felt a tag snug in the width and maybe a hair short. However I can tell they would feel amazing after just a few wears. The heel cups your foot and the arch support feels great for plantar fasciitis. The shoe is a little heavy but doesn’t look orthotic. The only reason I’m returning is to swap the plain black for the leopard.

These look like a bit like a Vans or Converse, in leather. The arch support is great. I ordered a 9, and had to size up to a 9 1/2. Unfortunately there is something about the fit on these that didn't work for me. There was a pressure point where the shoe bends when I walk, and the toe box ... although it felt roomy, rubbed against my small toe on my right foot. Small things, but since I was looking for a good walking shoe, I couldn't stick with. That being said, I wish they had fit. This brand is great about making cushioned shoes with an "align" insole that substitutes for an orthotic. Hence the great arch support. Really great shoes.
