I’m so glad I’m not in nursing school anymore where it was required to wear plain white shoes.
So. On to the review.
Overall, we really like them! It only took me about 2 shifts to feel totally comfortable in them, so very little break-in time. They have the same arch support of the traditional clog but the wide surface of your average athletic shoe. No ankle rolling for us! They feel lighter on the feet than the clogs do. They are slip resistant (it felt like suction cups the first time I walked on a slick surface) so that should come in handy as the parking lot starts to ice over this winter.
The one downside is the fact that they aren’t easily sanitized. These sneakers are made of fabric and you can’t use sanitizing wipes on them like you can with the clogs. But they DO use a stain resistant leather that you just wipe with a damp cloth to clean.
The fact that they are multi-purpose and could be worn to work or for athletic purposes is pretty awesome. For example, I imagine these might be pretty comfortable to walk around in while visiting Disneyland next year. It’ll be my first time going (Disney virgin?) and I’m excited!
Once again, Dansko, thank you for a stellar product!
