I’m a resident, and I own those exact pair of Dansko clogs you posted.  They are awesome.  So comfortable.  They got me through surgery rotation (i.e. standing in the OR for 12 hours at a time) as a medical student.  I still wear them with my scrubs when I’m on call.  Some people complain that they’ve twisted their ankles with them, but it hasn’t happened to me.

Oh, I love them. I don’t have an on-the-feet job, but I love em with jeans etc. I have two pairs of Danksos (both patent leather–one black, one leopard) and a pair of the Hickory Cabrio Sanitas. I have very high arches, and I found the vamp on the Sanitas to be a little tighter than the Danksos. That might be the difference between the makes, or the materials (patent stretches more? idk). SO very worth it.

I’d go try them on in person, but you can get a better deal on the internets than you can in the stores.

I work in a lab and wear the Dansko professionals (acid resistant) every day.  They were tight, especially over the top part, at first, but stretched out within two days.

I also work in a hospital and am on my feet all day long. I own a pair of Dansko clogs and I absolutely love them! They are very comfortable. I haven’t twisted my ankle, either, and I haven’t heard of anybody twisting their ankle. They did take some time to break in, though but once that is done, they are the best shoes. I wear mine all the time–even when I’m not working.

I have rolled my ankles, but never badly, and not entirely because of the shoes (high arches=feet roll out severely). They’re not great “off roading” shoes, so I’ve learned 😉

I second what everyone else said, including rolling my ankles a couple of times but not spraining anything. 🙂 I’m a nurse and absolutely love them! In fact, I love them so much I got two pairs of Dansko sandals with the same platform as the clogs (on Ebay, which is where I’ve found the best prices, although sometimes I’ve had to be patient to find them)! If it helps, I’m a size 6 and wear a Dansko size 35 or 36. The 36 can be a little big, mostly over my instep, but I can still wear them. The 35 fits me perfectly.

ETA: they are definitely worth the money, because they last forever and since the soles are made of PVC, the support lasts forever, too.
