Dansko Jute Pro Vegan Review
I call it the "Dansko-drille." The Jute Pro is the newest member of Dansko's Stapled Clog collection (it's vegan too, if that's a top priority for you).
My beautiful friend, Paula, is going to review the Jute Pro for you.
1. How does the Jute Pro fit compared to your other Dansko Professionals?
I usually wear a size 40 in a Dansko (my favorite go-to shoe in the fall/winter in the black patent – worn with a medium to heavy sock). Because this particular shoe looks best worn barefoot, I had to go a size down, which fit perfectly.
Editor note: This seems to be a common observance based on reviews. You may get a better fit ordering down a size.
2. Is it as comfortable as your other Danskos?
I wasn't sure how a Dansko clog would feel worn without socks, but it's surprisingly comfortable! I feel like I can easily wear them all day without any complaints.
3. Do you have any foot issues that this shoe helps?
I have a very narrow heel, and it's a bit tricky to find a shoe that fits just right. I LOVE that this shoe is supposed to be worn loose, and fits my narrow foot perfectly! It fits similar to the patent Danskos that I own, and I love the 'clog-like' feel.
Overall, I absolutely love the shoe. It's a cute spring/fall shoe, and the colorful stripes are a fresh change from the black and brown Danskos I wore all winter. The shoe is very comfortable – even without socks! They go very well with jeans, capris, and even skirts – very versatile.
