The Purple Swirl Felt Danskos are here!

On Christmas morning, I opened the correct box but the wrong shoes were inside - a bright pink felt swirl. While gorgeous, I just don't have enough pink clothing to justify keeping the $90 shoes (on sale).    The company was very sorry and overnighted me the correct shoes and they got here today.  I cannot tell you in words how much I love them.  I fear they will not leave my feet!! 

 Before you think I'm crazy, it is just that I am forced now to wear "safe" shoes and that doesn't always equal "cute" and forget "sexy".  Forget wearing shoes that elongate my legs.....  sigh.......I don't think I've ever mentioned on here that I was working at a high quality shoe store when hubs met me?  In fact, I flat out told him that if he had a problem with his wife buying quality shoes, then I wasn't his girl.  (My feet are very narrow and just don't fit most regular shoes, so no discount stores for me.)  He sheepishly admitted that back then, in 1986, he was spending $200+ bucks per pair of shoe for himself, so my $50 paled in comparison.  lol  

It isn't often that Dansko comes out with a shoe that I just love, rather than just being utilitarian.  If you have never tried Dansko, you must.  Work on your feet all day?  Check out the nurses shoes the next time you go the doc or hospital - most wear Danskos.

 When I wear them, I don't fall down.  And that's the goal, with my mostly numb feet.  I feel a huge sense of peace come over me when I have them on.   I consider these a must have for anyone suffering nerve damage - I'm so glad a health professional recommended I try these when my nerve damage first surfaced.  Otherwise, I would never have tried them.  So check them out:

These look blue but they are really black with purple swirl felt.

And guess what else?  In the first box came a free pair of Dansko socks.  I had never seen such a thing but put them aside.  A little while later, hubs came over and said, "Honey, let's try these on".  I had NO plans to do so, as messing with my feet is never fun.  What sensation they do have is exaggerated and painful.  However, he was super tender and careful and lo and behold......those socks were amazing!  I felt massaging on my feet!  

In the negotiations for the correct pair, the company through is yet a NEW pair of socks.  These run from $9.99 to $14.99 to higher.  Sorry, I just don't pay that for socks.  But ladies......these socks are simply something else.  I cannot explain it.  Here is the pair they sent me today:

Made out of Merino Wool, they are super soft and have support bands all around the arch and padding on the bottom of the sock.  The other pair are navy with red Dansko clogs all over it.  I won't be wearing these for fashion but for the comfort.  Now I'll be looking for Dansko socks on clearance.  Apparently, the sock line just came out in May, 2010.  

I am one happy Dansko customer.  Some day, I hope to get the purple patent clogs as well.  Apparently, my sister got my mom those - I can't wait to see them.  We don't wear the same size, so she doesn't have to worry about them disappearing.  lol    I'm still wearing my first black pair from 2005.  They last forever!

Anyone have an almost unhealthy affinity for all things purple?  lol



  1. Thank you so much for following Ordinary Inspirations. http://www.ordinaryinspirations.blogspot.com


  2. Would you please share where you got the Dansko's?

  3. Danskos were purchased at BurMar's Shoes over the Internet.


  4. Oh thank you thank you thank you! I recently re-injured my back and have been searching for a good slip-on, supportive shoe. Shopping is almost impossible so it's refreshing to read a great review for a proper shoe. After all you've been through, your review is very credible. Thanks again and I wish you a Happy New Year!


  5. I got the pink swirl one's in Richmond, VA in a 36 and didn't try them on b/c I have so many Dansko's. Turns out they are WAY too big. Did you find that this style ran large or was it just my pair? The Dansko company doesn't even have a 35 in stock so I'm at a loss of what to do now. Other than return my beloved pink shoes. :(

  6. Libby, the pink pair I accidentally received WAS way too big, as a matter of fact! I was happy when the purple ones fit "as usual". Guess the pink ones just run big? Order the purple ones if you can - just gorgeous in person.

    Oh, another tip - have you tried the Dansko socks? You know how the Danskos are "roomy" if you wear thin socks? Well, the Dankso socks are padded a bit on the bottom and fit your foot snuggly into the Danskos. Might try that, along with putting some inserts in the bottom (if you keep the current pair). Sorry to hear that!

  35. This process is usually favoured by people newer to internet marketing and business, as those who have been running an internet business realise that delivering products manually will not only take up all of your spare time, but will eventually lead to many disgruntled
    customers, and a number of customers thinking they've been scammed.

It is sold through Click - Bank, considered the internet's most trusted digital marketplace.
