Yes, I admit it. I am a shoe fanatic- a Dansko shoe fanatic.
I have bad feet, and I have to wear orthopedic shoes. I wear Danskos or Sanitas almost exclusively.
Today Groupon has a deal for CLOGKINGDOM! $45 for $90 worth of shoes.
Woot! Danskos at half price.
I am a Dansko evangelist. Sad but true. Ask me about my shoes and be prepared for a passionate endorsement!
For the first time ever, I don’t have chronic foot and back pain.
But they are pricey (last forever, but pricey!) I’ve done the math, actually, and for me Danskos are cheaper than any other shoe (previously, I would buy the best athletic shoes I could find for $50 or so at the outlets, then stuff them with 2-3 orthopedic inserts at $10 a pop- so $80. But the athletic shoes would only last a year or so, if that, and I still had a lot of pain. My Dansko clogs, I’ve had for 3 years, and I only have pain if I’ve been walking or standing on concrete for hours (like my first trip to Costco, ahem.)
I’ve slowly been adding to my collection, buying a pair each year. I have brown clogs, black dressy shoes, and this year bought some sneaker types which look sporty and stay on my feet better for hiking and uneven terrain.
Frankly, I need good, comfortable shoes to do my job, because I don’t actually sit around all day.
I have a pair of dressy black heels, and they are the only dress shoes I can wear and walk in. When I spoke at the San Antonio Catholic Homeschool Conference, I wore them all weekend and they were amazing. No pain.
I ended up starting a whole Pinterest board for outfit inspiration, just for that pair of shoes! (I need all the fashion help I can get, so Pinterest is my fashion friend!)
Anway, if you are a Dansko fanatic,
check out the sale. I have my eye on a pair of summery sandals. It gets hot in Houston and it would be nice to have a pair I could wear without socks.
