I still wear them all the time. I even wore them for a day at Silver Dollar City (lots of hills!) and I wear them hiking.
You have to learn to walk in them. The hard flat sole can hit uneven ground and cause you to twist your ankle. Some people have a problem with that.
Sanita is supposed to be the same but I don't find them as comfortable.
I have been living in Danskos for 16 years. Some of the different soles (higher heel) have not been as comfortable as the ones in the professional line, so I stick with them. I have tried Sanitas as well and do not find them as comfortable. I have high arches and my feet get really tired without good arch support.
Another line I like are Troentorp swedish clogs that have a wooden footbed so even more arch support.
I may also revisit Birkenstocks which I lived in when I was in college.
