The average teacher walks about 2 miles a day….just during her working hours! That’s not counting the mom and wife duties she takes on at home. Last year, I noticed that my heels were feeling really sore and bruised. It was painful to walk. Especially after a period of sitting or when waking up first thing in the morning. I knew that the cute, cheap shoes with ZERO support that I’d gotten away with wearing for my first 38 years of life just weren’t going to cut it anymore. So I went on a quest to find shoes that I could actually wear. And be comfortable in. And walk 2+ miles a day in….while still looking and feeling stylish.
Not an easy quest. But after much searching and trying out shoes, I’ve found a favorite brand: Dansko. I always thought of Dansko as nurse’s shoes and clogs. But they have expanded their product line to include SO much more! And each season you can expect Dansko to be on trend with fabulous new releases in the season’s hottest colors and styles. So when I was given the chance to try out THESE beauties, I was ALL IN!
**Disclaimer: Dansko sent me these shoes free of charge in exchange for an HONEST product review. All opinions expressed in this post are my own opinions. I do not endorse a product unless I believe in it.**
The first pair I tried out were the taupe suede Sandras.
The first day I wore my Sandra Mary Jane style wedges, I went shopping ALL DAY for Christmas. These shoes were comfy and supportive all day. I didn’t have any foot pain at the end of the day. And at 5’4″, I was thankful for the boost in height! 😉
Here’s a couple of ways to style these shoes for a full day of teaching in comfort!
The black nubuck Lola booties were perfect and stylish for a full day on my feet in the classroom as well.
Once again, I loved the little heel that gave me some added height! I love the contrast stitching detail on these shoes as well as the textured upper section. I paired them with some pink skinny jeans and a graphic tee.
Here are some other fun ways to style these on trend booties:
On this day, I wore them with a buffalo plaid black and white sweater and some black skinny jeans. So stylish and my feet felt like HEAVEN!
The last beauties I tried out were more classic Dansko style–clogs! These olive Denis are no longer available, but they are AMAZING. Seriously, one of the softest and most comfortable footbeds of all 3 pairs I tried! I love the fringe detail that dresses them up. And Olive is definitely *my color* this Fall and Winter!
I also love these shoes with this black floral dress:

I’m officially a shoe convert after this experience! Plantar Fasciitis doesn’t have to mean ugly orthopedic shoes. If you’re tired of sore feet, try out your first pair of Danskos. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
