Do Dansko Shoes Run Big or Small?

Dansko shoes, including their iconic clogs, usually run a little small.

Those who wear half sizes are recommended to size up to the nearest whole size.

To get the most accurate fit, you should measure your feet and use an official sizing chart like the one above.

How are Dansko Shoes Supposed to Fit?

If you are trying your first ever pair of Dansko clogs, you may be a little unsure of whether you have the correct size. These shoes don’t fit like regular shoes and are likely to feel a bit big at first.

Dansko clogs have a wide toe box that will allow your toes to splay. Your toes should not touch the front of the clog.

Unlike some other shoes, your heel should be able to move freely up and down. You should have roughly a pinky finger’s worth of space between the heel counter and the back of your heel.

Do Dansko Shoes Come in Different Widths?

The majority of Dansko models are offered in medium width only.

However, the popular clogs are offered in both narrow and wide fit. These options are available in both the women’s and men’s ranges.

Dansko Sizing FAQs

Are Dansko clogs good for your feet?

Dansko clogs are ideal for those who spend long hours on their feet. This makes them very popular among nurses and doctors. The footbed offers amazing support, helping your feet to feel fresh for longer, even when you’ve been on them all day.

Do you have to wear socks with Danskos?

You can wear your Dansko shoes with or without socks. The clogs are very airy which allow your feet to breathe. Therefore, you may find that socks are not necessary. It is a matter of personal preference.

Are Dansko shoes slip-resistant?

Many of the shoes that Dansko offers are slip-resistant and they plan to add more models to their range. Slip-resistant Dansko shoes have been tested on a number of surfaces that people are likely to encounter in the workplace. These include dry, wet and oily surfaces.

Good to Know

Final Words

Dansko footwear fits differently from most shoes and is designed to be roomy.

These shoes run a little small which means that those in-between sizes should size up to the nearest whole size.

Although shoe models tend to be offered in medium width as standard, the famous clogs are available in both narrow and wide fits.
