Review of Women’s Shoes by Dansko

Check our Latest products!

Women’s Dansko shoes are a trademark brand, known for their Danish clog style that’s somehow simultaneously clunky and cute.

The brand is extremely popular with women who spend a lot of time on their feet (nurses, doctors, teachers, etc.) and is well-known for its comfortable style.

But, are these shoes really all they’re hyped up to be? Is their clog style chic or too immature? For a helpful review of Dansko brand shoes, read on.

Product Price Points

Dansko shoes tend to retail for anywhere from $90 to $200, depending on the style and type of the shoe. They’re slightly more expensive than your average casual footwear, but comparable to other “comfort brands” on the market.

Comfort of the Shoes

The people who love Dansko shoes, really love this brand. They swear by the support, the way the shoe holds the foot and the incredible shock absorption. The shoe is particularly popular with nurses, primary teachers and other professions that involve spending a lot of time on your feet.

However, like Birkenstocks, it takes these shoes a few wears to actually mold to your feet. When you first slip your foot in, the shoe feels almost unnatural, as if it’s not supporting or cushioning the foot. After a few wears, the insoles of these shoes will shift and adjust to form to the foot.

Quality of the Footwear

Overall, Dansko’s are well made shoes that hold up over time. The company does not offer a lifetime guarantee, but they will repair or replace any shoes within a reasonable amount of time and wear since the date of purchase.

Probably the biggest strike against the company’s shoes is that they can’t be resoled. The soles are what make the shoes – it’s a multi-layer system of cushioning and support. Because of that patented sole system, having the shoes resoled would defeat the purpose.

Style of Shoes

The Dansko brand has worked hard over the last few years to come out with a variety of styles, colors and designs.

Unfortunately, they can’t seem to get away from that clunky and heavy look. Those thick, chunky soles just weigh the whole shoe down, making it a major focal point of any outfit (whether you want it to or not).

For fans of this manufacturer, they adore the trademark clog look. But, many fashion critics have called these shoes a style abomination. They might be great for on the job or a day spent running errands in your jeans, but Dansko’s are definitely not the right shoes for a critical meeting or a first date.


Women’s Dansko shoes are well made and comfortable, but they’re definitely not stylish. If you’re willing to forgo looks and fashion for a sturdy shoe, then this is the brand for you.
