Howdy ATS! I haven't made a new thread in a while, so bear with me!
I love my Dansko shoes! As a male, I call mine "Mansko's".
There are very few products I've bought that not only meet, but exceed my expectations. I've had my oldest pair of Dansko's for 5 years, and with a
little leather conditioning and love -- they'd look like new.
People claim they are "ugly", and I tend to agree. Dansko's are ugly, but I love mine. I love my ugly shoes because they are the most
comfortable shoes I've ever owned. I slip them on day after day and never even think about them:
I always wondered why after a week I defaulted to these shoes. They didn't quite feel good the first week I wore them. In fact, for the first week I
thought my new Dansko's were the worst shoes ever!
After the 6th day of wearing them and being on my feet all day -- something magical happened. "Let me get my shoes" all of a sudden defaulted to my
These shoes are great! The "clog" look isn't very popular, but they do make a sweet looking woman's clog:
There's a really good site
that gives reasons why Dansko's
are awesome. Here's a few experts:
The Professional clog features a patented polyurethane outsole that provides shock absorption comparable to athletic footwear, which significantly
reduces stress on the joints. Meanwhile the ergonomically contoured insole supplies firm foot and arch support to align your feet properly, keeping
them comfortable, secure, and happy all day long.
I can definitely attest to the comfort. I've been told that Alaska Airlines reimburses their flight attendants for new Dansko shoes. I've personally
met teachers and nurses that wear the "non-slip" soles daily.
Customers quote the lifespans of their Danskos as anywhere from 2 to 10 years (depending on frequency of wear, occupation, and environment in which
they are worn)
I can attest to that myself. These shoes wear like cast iron.
"...one customer said that before she tried Dansko’s she had gone through more than 4 pairs of work shoes in 2 years while her co-workers were
still wearing their same Dansko’s...
Crocks are popular among nurses and teachers -- but they don't last. How many pairs of crocks have you been through in the past few years?
I'm a firm believer in products that are of quality and last, products that "do as advertised". Dansko has, in my opinion, made a quality product
that is worthy of it's price.
No, I do not have any agenda other than that of the love for my shoes. Once you wear/try them you'll understand.
