As far back as high school, I have always had a passion for shoes.  I remember when I was 16 spending $160 of my own hard earned money on a gorgeous pair of grey leather boots with a 4″ heel that my Mom had refused to buy me.  I’m sure that her refusal was in part because 4″ wasn’t exactly a realistic height for a pair of boots for a 16 year old. I remember wearing them for the first day and my feet HURT so much by the end of the day. Of course, I didn’t want my other to know she was actually right about those shoes so I continued to wear them.

My tastes in shoes have changed a lot from when I was 16. I may still sigh over a gorgeous pair of 4″ heels but there is no way they will ever be found in my closet again. I do love the way those shoes look in the store but the memory of those 4″ heels reminds me to not make that mistake again.

Shoes for a Busy Lifestyle

Today, I need shoes for a busy lifestyle that are both stylish and comfortable. I spend a lot of time on my feet, running errands, shopping, standing in line, etc. I cannot do that in 4″ heels even on a good day. Dansko has a wonderful selection of shoes that are both stylish and super comfortable.  They were incorporated in 1990 and over the past 23 years have shown, what I think, is a fantastic commitment to giving back.  They work with organizations like Habitat for Humanity, Canine Partners for Life, and Adopt a Highway (to name just a few).  In 2009, they recycled 86% of their waste.

I received a pair of the Tilda style shoes from Dansko.  The Dansko Tilda have a custom cross-hatch stretch design across the top that keeps your foot comfortably in place. They are flexible enough to wear with dress pants, jeans or even a skirt.  Since I rarely wear skirts, I knew I would most often wear these shoes with pants or jeans.  The Dansko Tilda has a slight heel (2 ” plus 1/2″ platform) that makes it dressy without being too dressy for jeans. I love shoes that can be worn with a variety of different outfits. It has a leather upper and lining/polyurethane sole. The footbed is soft and supports my foot well making this an extremely comfortable pair of shoes even when I’m on my feet most of the day.

I have a number of different pairs of Dansko in my closet. They are my go to shoe when I travel because I know I will be on my feet all day. Most of the shoes I have from Dansko are the stapled clog style which I generally wear with my jeans.  That style really isn’t dressy enough to wear with slacks which is why I chose the Tilda this time.  I love that it has just a bit more style because of the cross-hatch stretch design and the burnished black color means I can wear it with just about anything.

How would you wear your Dansko?

    I think I would use the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven quite a lot.  I like that it cuts the cooking time down so much but is still a real oven.  I use my microwave when I am in a hurry but don't like using it for real meals.  It's ok for some jobs but I love a real oven.  
  41. TILDA BLACK BURNISHED FULL GRAIN.
  42. Jesselyn A/Jesstinger says
    I really want and need new shoes for autumn and winter that are in a burgundy color like the Cordovan ~ and usually I can't resist Mary Janes (especially with a 2" heel like the Tandy) but - in this case I think my most favorites are a tie between the Tamera and the Tilda styles.)
