Dansko shoesPosted by Marty on 3/01/03 at 11:43 (111269)
Has anyone tried Dansko shoes. It looks to be that my not accommodate orthodics due to the arch. Is this the case? Are they a good product for feet such as ours?

Some people here have really liked Dansko clogs a lot! I'll bet you would come up with a lot of posts if you do a search on 'Dansko' for these message boards. They are supposed to be a good product for people with plantar fasciitis. I don't recall anybody saying that they were wearing orthotics with them, though.
I've never even tried any Danskos on, but I thought I'd pass this info along anyway.

I wore Dansko's last year when working. My orthotics didn't fit in them.
Personally,they didn't work for me. I was on my feet 8-10 hrs/day on concrete on them. By the end of the year I was not only having heel pain but bad pain and numbness at the ball of my feet.
I recently switched and have been alternating between Birk clogs and New balance trainers with orthotics and haven't had any foot pain in a couple weeks now(yay!)
That said, I'm about hte only person I know that hasn't liked their Danskos...just about everyone I work with wears them and loves them.
As with most shoes probably personally mileage will vary....

Orthotics will not fit into the danskos....the footbed is not removable and the shoe itself ofers significant support. Trying these on first is a must.

I have the Dansko shoes with ties, and the footbed is removable to allow for Orthotics. I guess your talking of actual clogs, not the shoe type clogs.
