I'm pretty sure my feet haven't grown, because all of my other shoes still fit, but the latest Sanita styles are about a 1/2 size too small for me. It's really frustrating, because otherwise they're great shoes. I love this style in particular -- so cute with the flower cut-outs, and just as supportive as Sanitas always are. I'm used to being able to wear my Sanitas all day, with lots of walking and no discomfort. Sadly, not so with these. I ordered the next size up, but those practically fell off my feet. Sanita, if you can hear me (I realize it's a company, not a person), please bring back "normal" sizing! Other than Danskos, you're the only shoe I can comfortably wear!

I LOVE that these have what I call a good heel to toe ratio - what that means, to me, is that the shoe is not on a huge incline in terms of a high heel and a low toe area. I have very sore feet and can't wear shoes that are on a big incline for more than a few hours, but I'm 5'2" so I always want the height of a heel. I'm eternally on the hunt for shoes like this, that give you a good height boost, but where the front wedge is also substantial enough to decrease the shoe's incline. Ideally there isn't more than 1" difference between the heel and the toe height. SHOE MANUFACTURERS TAKE NOTE!!! I'm not alone on this, I know many others who wish women's shoes had height without incline! PLEASE MAKE MORE! Sadly, I also have relatively narrow feet and my feet were swimming in these. I'm usually a size 9 but can sometimes get away with an 8.5. I ordered these in a 40 and they were huge (width wise) and seemed to have a decent amount of toe room, so I then ordered the 39 and the width was a bit better but my toes were bumping the front. I WISH these came in a narrow - SANITA please make this kind of a shoe but not for such wide feet! OK, dismounting soap box now.

Equal in quality to my Danskos, better price, but these seem to run small...I have had them for several months now and they are killing my toes every time I try to wear them, they seem a bit more narrow than my Danskos...but I also realize with handmade here can be some inconsistencies. I just wish I had realized sooner so I could have returned them for a different size or style...great looking, great quality, just need to figure out sizing. I have an average to narrow foot...have only worn them about ten times but always get compliments! Great color, goes with everything...just regretting not going with my gut and exchanging them. Sorry, I know this review sort of rambles back and forth.

These shoes are so cute! I was very disappointed that they did not fit better. They feel very small all around and a larger size is not available for me. The toe box on each shoe also appeared very worn, while the pattern on the rest of the shoe was very distinct. Still, if a larger size was available, I would try again because they are really pretty!

This is the first pair of Sanitas I have tried that don't feel like they are digging in to my arch. Other styles I have tried were actually painful to walk in because they didn't meet my arch in the right place, but these are very comfortable! This is a pretty shoe with wiggle room in the toe, which is nice; I can't stand anything tight on my feet! I'm a nurse who lost a 12 year battle with plantar fasciitis and had to have surgery for it, so finding a comfortable shoe has been nearly impossible for 5 years!. Thank God for Zappos customer service and easy returns, as I order and try different shoes often! I have tried Dansko but could never get the right fit. I ordered another pair of these in blue and hope they are just as comfy!

I ordered the Sanita Acasia in what I thought was a shiny multi color. It was black patent when it came. The fit was fine and felt good. Would have been perfect had the color been what I thought I was ordering. Please correct your pictures for this shoe on the website. But overall the shoe would have been fine and I would have kept it.

Thank you Zappos for your patience! After about 15 returns while trying to repace my size 36 Dansko clogs, I finally stumble upon Sanita clogs thanks to user reviews! These fit exactly like the Dansko shoes that I wore for years until they started to be made in China. I am very happy with them and have just ordered a second pair, so now I will have white and black.

I love these clogs. I chose them over Dansko's because of the reviews. These are all leather and do not squeak on waxed floors. I was not at all disappointed. They were heaven from day one. I have no foot or back pain and feel this is due to the great support. My feet are wide, but have normal arches. I ordered my regular size.

Comfortable shoe. I have a narrow foot and these are just right in the width. I ordered my usual size until I found out that there should be a gap in the heel, so not to get blisters. Order the next size up for proper fit.

This shoe had some sloppy construction - not sure if it's just my pair, but the edges of the leather around the base and on the inside were rough and didn't line up with the heel. I also turned my foot when I was trying them on, something I haven't done in Danskos in years since they slightly widened the heel. Pretty leather but returning for a pair of tried-and-true Dansko Professionals.

I loved these shoes but they ran way wide, I'd never keep them on my feet. So sorry I had to return them...guess I'll stick to Spring Step.

I like the shoes and they fit well. However, I was shocked at how scuffed up they were. I'm not sure if this is normal given the type of leather, but I was surprised. I've decided to keep them since, with wear, they will likely get scuffed up anyway. I just thought they would look more "new" when I bought them. Especially given the price!

These shoes are exactly what I expected, shiny and bright red. They are true to size and couldn't be more comfortable.

I usually love Sanita clogs, but these shoes just didn't fit right. They slip off my feet when I walk, and really need an adjustable strap, and a narrower heel.

These are great, supportive clogs but far too narrow around the join/ball of foot for me. Sadly will have to return them and opt for Danskos I think.

I bought these a size larger because of a review I read about them running small but these are true to size so don't make the same mistake. Otherwise they are incredibly comfortable despite my tendinitis and plantar fasciitis. Plus they look very elegant and gorgeous!

I have experience with Dansko and Sanita. Before Dansko changed their footbed, I found the main difference was that Sanitas fit more glove-like, and the foot roll action while walking, is much smoother. I don't like Dansko's new footbed, or Dansko's overall fit, in comparison. I really like Sanita's fit -- but they are too small. (Note that it is remotely possible my feet have gotten a tiny bit bigger.) I bought this pair of oiled brown in a wide of my usual size. They were so very tight. But, I know how much my Danskos used to stretch, so I decided to work with them. I can wear them with thin socks, but my wide toe-bed still feels a little constricted. (Toe spread allowance is one of the classic design features of the clog.) They work well for riding my bicycle (so I'll keep them). But I need bigger pair for walking/standing. I will size-up 1 size this time for sure, and maybe get a different color/finish.

Love these shoes! I'm an anesthesia resident, and I do a lot of standing. Danskos and Sanitas are everywhere in the hospital -- thanks to their reputation for being comfortable, easy to wear, and back-saving! I have owned a pair of black Sanitas since med school (which awesomely pair with scrubs and dress pants), and decided it was time for a new snazzy pair. I invested in these pretty kicks, and I was not disappointed. I did order 2 colors at first, and the other color pair fit too tight. I panicked and ordered both colors in a 42, whereas my original pair was a size 41. When this pretty gray color arrived in size 41, it fit perfectly! Perhaps that other color was just made a little extra snug. I do size-up in these a bit -- I wear 9.5-10 in all shoes, and I fit in a 41 nicely. If you like the looser fit of Danskos, I'd maybe size up twice...the 42 size fits more like Dansko brand. All in all, love them, and I'm so grateful to Zappos for letting me panic about sizes. Certainly don't want to lay down this kind of money for shoes and have them not fit! Zappos saves the day!

I love these. I usually wear an 8, and I lean towards a wide. These fit right out of the box and are very cool - love the stitching. Look great with jeans, or with plan black pants. I always get compliments on these!

I've been searching for a pair of clogs that fit my high arch and instep...but these weren't them. They fit everywhere else, but they were so tight on the top of my foot. I read that these might be better than Dansko for a high instep, and they were slightly better in that I could actually get them on my feet, but still too tight. Sigh. The search continues. Thanks Zappos for making my shoe search easier!

High insteps and high arches have kept me from enjoying clogs until now. Danskos never worked for me. I always felt in between sizes. Given that Sanita was making Dansko for a long time (is, possibly, outside the US?) I thought this was likely a try on and send back purchase. Hallelujah! They fit beautifully (pinky width behind my heels, easy slip on, no pain)! By 'they' I mean the Sanita Professional Gwenore in the lovely floral embossed brown leather. I want to mention that I also tried the Sanita Professional Cabrio in black leather in the same size, and I couldn't squeeze my foot in.
