Dansko is the reason that I can walk. I've been wearing Danskos for 20 years+ and have never been disappointed in a single pair. I wear these shoes for work, for everyday, around the house, just all the time and they are podiatrist approved for me. They provide podiatric features for me since I have bunions which don't bother me as long as I wear Danskos only. I also have a neurological disorder that makes it hard for me to keep my balance and walk, but Danskos help me out there as well. This pair was purchased because I needed something to go with my brown outfits and these were just so beautifully designed and different from the usual one color shoe, so I bought them! I'm always on the lookout for something different from Danskos, and these are IT! Color-blocked as well as a fantastic shoe that helps keep me ambulatory and active at age 70 - and working full time! What more could one ask of a shoe and actually get it? Danskos fulfill all my shoe wear needs, and I L-O-V-E On-line Shoes' wesite, ease of finding what I want, and checkout process. These shoes are winners from beginning to end!
