Dansko Karl - You may be more comfortable sizing downward for open-back models (for example, if you are a US size 11, you may want to choose EU size 44).
Dansko's most traditional open-back style for men that takes on the critical roll of providing comfort to those in the nursing, hospitality and other occupational fields.
Your heel should be either even with or slightly forward of the back of the clog and your toes should not hit the front of the clog.
High quality leather upper follows the natural contours of the foot. Box leather is ideal for the workplace environments with wet, acidic or greasy conditions. It has a smooth, clean finish with the natural irregularities removed. It is the easiest leather to maintain, and can be wiped clean with soap and water.
Instep collar is generously padded.
Roomy Thermoplastic toe box provides durable reinforcement and toe protection while allowing toes to move comfortably.
Nonallergenic vegetable tanned leather sockliner wrapped around synthetic foam absorbs and evaporates perspiration.
Protective Polyethylene heel counter allows the heel to move up and down when walking. Also provides lateral stability and acts as a natural shoe horn.
PVC inner frame provides stability and reduces torque and pronation.
Polyurethane outsole provides shock absorption and flexibility, withstands surfaces of extreme heat and cold, and protects feet, legs and back during long hours of standing or walking.
Rocker bottom propels the foot forward when walking.
Dansko Stapled clog outsoles are designed to be suitably slip resistant in workplace environments where excesses of vegetable oils and animal fats are present. Slip resistant tests have been carried out by SATRA, the world's leading research and technology organization for the footwear industry.
