First off...These seem to run small. I usually wear a 37 (in Dansko), but had to do a 38 in this brand. One thing I like better about these shoes than Dansko is the fact that they are a little bit more norrow (but not too narrow, i consider myself to have wider feet), and they don't feel sloppy on the feet. Also, the arching is a little bit more obvious than Dansko. At first I didn't like it, but now I think it really enhances comfort. They are very comfortable, but I did need to break them in a bit. The don't rub my feet raw anywhere and my feet aren't sore at the end of the day. Great buy....Cheaper than dansko (depending on the style), but really great.
