I bought these shoes for a recent trip to Europe for long walking tours in warm weather. The shoe has a wide foot bed so feet can relax while expanding after many hours. Even wore them on the 15 hour flight over & did not remove them once. The leather shoestrings are a bit not to my liking - tend to loosen a bit. And I would like if the design were just a little more feminine - though I cannot imagine how!

These shoes are comfortable right out of the box and are great for walking. They have very good arch support, but not as good as the Dansko Professional line, so if you need that degree of support, these may not be for you. I tried the Dansko Olivia last year but was between sizes and my foot slipped. This shoe has a similar look as the Olivia, but the laces allow for a more custom fit without the slipping. Like all Dansko shoes I own, they are well made. The leather is soft, beautiful, and of high quality. I like the feminine oxford style. These shoes are cute with jeans, casual pants, skinny's with rolled cuffs, leggings, and casual skirts or dresses with tights. I personally would not wear them for a dressier look. Regarding the title of this post, I ordered a total of three pairs of this shoe because the left tongue of the first two pairs was sewn unevenly. Nordstrom was wonderful with the exchange process, and the third pair was perfect. This might be attributed to the fact that Dansko now makes their shoes in China... In all fairness, this very minor defect probably would go unnoticed by most people, but I'm just a little OCD. ;)
