I'm on my feet approx 40hrs a week. I retired my Danko Pro clogs and got these as replacement. My feet/heels were always tender in the Dansko's :( I cannot believe how much these Alegria Dayna shoes are making me and my feet happy!! The heel is a little wider and lower than Dansko's which helps prevent ankle-rolling. I also like that the strap comes across at a bit of an angle which relieves some of the pressure across the top of my foot. I got the waxy black and they clean up beautifully with a damp cloth. The firm rocker-bottom prevents the friction/hot foot that occurs (for me) with shoes that are very cushy. The only minor caution is that the strap was marginally short (I have a high instep) but with a few wearings, it's relaxed a bit and now fits quite comfortably. The Mary-Jane style is new for me, so I have to be careful which socks I wear with them. My work requires that I wear all black but some of my black socks have the brand name or different colored reinforcements across the toes which may show in these shoes. I'm in LOVE with these shoes and would definitely buy them again!!!
