For men with sizing questions...
on December 2, 2013
I work as an ER nurse and was skeptical about buying these.. I am writing this review due to my lack of finding good sizing information prior to purchasing. There is a chart don't get me wrong on Dansko's website that explains what you should buy when cross-referencing US sizes to Euro sizes. My concern was that everything I order in a shoe, sneaker or boot is 12. When assessing the chart it does not offer a 12. You either get a 11.5-12 or a 12.5-13.. They say for men you take the number 33 and add your shoe size to it and that is the euro size that you should order. However mine 33+12=45 is recommended for a 11.5-12. I ordered the 12.5-13 instead and was glad I did.. They say proper fit is a pinky between your heel and the back of the clog. I can barely get my pinky in there but overall fit is pretty good.. The strap portion that goes over the top of your foot I had heard was tight on a few people leaving them to question the comfort of the shoe, I can contest that that is so and welcome the snugness or else the darn thing would fall off while running around. Im sure it will loosen a bit when they get broken in over time so not too concerned over that.. My love for these is being able to slip off when and if you get a break in the night.. Nothing like loosing yours shoes and letting your feet breathe for a minute, as long as your co-worker doesn't have to smell them..Remember stinky foot etiquette!! :) So it goes to say for me and probably a lot of others that are a size 12 to order the 46 euro.. I have not worn these and tested the comfort after 12 hours of running around like a madman (as you all probably know) so that my friend is yet to be determined.. I wanted to post this for the questionable sizing info. I hope this helps for all in question.
