Dansko Sam Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

I bought the shoe in black. I can wear it in professional settings as well as every day casual. I have a closet full of shoes I can't wear because I have feet issues. I'm diabetic, have a bum ankle, one foot is bigger than the other, and my second toe is longer than my big too, so comfort is a major factor for me. Most shoes are very painful for me to wear. I did a search on 'the world's most comfortable shoes' and Dansko products came up, so I bit the bullet and spent three times what I normally would on a pair of shoes in the hopes they would be comfortable. I won't lie to you. It's not like walking on a cloud of cotton. But after a few days of wearing them, I have no blisters, my feet feel secure, and although I don't feel like I'm walking on clouds, there is at least no pain. So I'm happy I bought them. :)

I started a new job in March and came home every night for a week nearly weeping from how much my feet hurt...in sneakers! Dansko was on my short list to examine as an alternative when I got a great tip from a nurse I met: the heel of the clogs are wide and you're likely to step out of them. She even said she'd known women who fractured ankles in the clogs. When I saw this version with the snug ankle straps I thought it was a great solution to my concerns. I was right, these Dansko's are amazing! They stay snugly on my feet, they are comfortable enough to wear 8-10 hours a day running around a winery and they don't look half bad. I have the black, they aren't super stylish, but nice, and so so comfortable. No more crying, no more epsom salt foot baths, no more elevated legs every night, these are exactly what I needed. I highly recommend them!

I had been eyeing this shoes for a while. I have them in the sand dollar color. They are super comfortable and a lot more stylish that other Danskos - great for that "in between" spring and fall weather. however, they make my feet stink! My feet have never smelled before but after wearing these my feet smell - I think it's because the leather at the front doesn't allow the foot to breathe mixed with the cushioned/soft footbed that breeds bacteria. I have to wipe the sole clean every few weeks and put my shoes in the freezer to kill the bacteria. It's kind of ridiculous - especially since my feet have never smelled. Other than that - these shoes are great!

Love this shoe! I have wide feet and I stand all day for work, and these shoes are perfect on both fronts. The arch support is great (as always). The leather on the Sam is also very flexible, which is the main reason my wide foot is comfortable in this medium width shoe. As others have said, this shoe is lightweight and has a very soft interior (unlike most Dansko shoes). My only word of warning is that this style runs shorter than the others. If you have long toes, you might want to try ordering you regular size and one up.

I love these shoes. I bought them a size larger and they are perfect. As some of the other reviewers stated, they do not cut into the top of my foot. They are stylish and comfy. My feet run wide and I was surprised at how well these fit. I highly recommend them.

Negative Reviews:

I tried these as they are very cute, but the edge around the part that covers the toes was hard and rubbed uncomfortably on my foot. It seemed like it would take way too long to break that part in, if ever. Sent them back.
