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.

The Dansko Jute Pro comes in three patterns (stripes and two colors of embroidered flowers) and is available at:

Style note: Paula’s colorful belt is from Noonday Collection. Handwoven by rural Peruvian Belt women, the “Embellished Belt” is only one of the uniquely beautiful hand-crafted items you will find at Noonday Collection. I love their mission statement, “Our passion at Noonday Collection is to connect you with the lives of artisans struggling for a better future while styling you along the way.”

    Hooray for vegan shoes! Sadly these are just too cutesy for me. Still on the hunt for supportive, everyday vegan shoes. Anyone have suggestions?

  2. Elizabeth Ann,
    One of my favorite vegan shoes is the Jambu Journey Vegan. It has good support, not quite that of Dansko, though.

  3. elizabeth ann says:

    Thanks for the tip! I’ve been looking at Jambu shoes a lot lately, but hadn’t really considered the Journey. I usually prefer something with a back and a lower heel, but perhaps I should consider giving it a shot.

  4. cedar says:

    I suggest J-41 or Jambu. Both very comfortable and many/mostly? vegan styles.

  5. elizabeth ann says:

    I am getting pretty close to investing in a pair of Jambu or J-41 shoes (a big investment on a graduate student stipend). The problem is that the style I am most drawn to the Jambu barefoot, is probably also the least supportive.

  6. cedar says:

    Did you check They often have both.

  7. The Dansko Clog is my go-to shoe for when I need to be on my feet all day! I ordered the Dansko Rowena sandal for summer and am thrilled with how it looks and feels.
    Hope all is well,
    Dr. Cathleen A. McCarthy
