Dansko shoes are specially made for professionals who spend all day standing or walking around. The Professional Mule are a great pair if you’re looking for comfort, style, and an unparalleled stable construction.
Made from leather, these shoes feature a PU sole. This gives them a rocker design which helps you stay on your feet all day, reducing the pressure from your forefoot and spreading it out evenly. The outsole is also slip resistant, which comes in handy for jobs where you often come upon wet terrain.
The bottoms of these shoes are thick and shock absorbent, and our many people who have had foot and knee pain reported a significant improvement after wearing the Dansko Professional Mule. However, take note – this sturdy design makes the shoes look a bit clunky and thick, so if you prefer a sleek and lean design, take a look at some other shoes on this list.
Be aware that, since these are leather shoes, they need some time to loosen up. Our research showed that most users need to wear them for at least a day before they start to really fit their foot. But most reported that if you give these Dansko shoes some time, they will not disappoint even the most needy foot.
With the reinforced, extra spacious toe box, and the width of these shoes, they’re perfect for people with wider feet. They also allow for enough space for feet that tend to swell, so if your job makes you spend more than 12 hours at a time on your feet, these Dansko shoes are the perfect solution.
But it gets better:
The padded instep collar and PU inner frame which reduces torque make these shoes both sturdy and comfortable. The footbed of these shoes is made from memory foam, so the comfort is unparalleled. The heel strike is wide, so you’ll be extra stable while wearing them.
Our research showed that people with chronic foot issues report they prefer adding insoles like the VICOCOLE Men and Women's Full Orthotics Shoe Insoles, Cushioning Arch Support Inserts for Flat Feet, Plantar Fasciitis to their Dansko shoes for added support.
Learn from this:
When it comes to maintenance, the Dansko Professional Mule are spot resistant, so you only need to wipe them down with a damp cloth every once in a while to keep them looking like new for years. All in all, these are a great pair of shoes for standing all day.
Let’s see what women who have already tried them say about our number one shoes. According to Jessica, a long-time user of Dansko clogs, the quality of these shoes has remained superb even after they’ve stopped manufacturing them in Europe. In her experience, the mules can last up to seven years, which is a number she’s very happy with. She especially loves how good they feel on her feet.
Not all women are as satisfied with these mules as Jessica. Namely, Jennifer says she was disappointed when she saw the shoes, since they looked quite cheap. According to her, this especially applies to the wood grain design. She didn’t mention anything about comfort and support, but she did say she didn’t like the choice of materials.
