It’s a Dansko sneaker! Introducing the Santa Fe Collection (+ giveaway!)

I started wearing Dansko clogs when I was pregnant with Nola over 7 years ago. And since then, they’ve become my go-to shoe on days I know I’ll be on my feet for long hours.

When I was introduced to Dansko all those many years ago – I would refer to them as “that company that makes those cute clog shoes”. Today, that’s not the case at all. Sure, they still make the cute clogs, but whooooa girl, how they’ve successfully branched out with new and exciting non-clog styles.

Favorites include the Franka, the Carol, and those awesome boots, the Tabitha.

Kid shoes!? They have kid shoes now! And they’ve become Piper’s go-to school shoe, assuming they always continue to come in fun colors.

And now this. You guys, DANSKO HAS LACE UP SNEAKERS. Yes, that warranted full caps shout-y.

Let me introduce you to the Santa Fe Collection:

The important details:

  • The shoe has an ergonomically contoured, multi-density (removable) footbed. Amazing shock absorption, so they’re perfect for long hours on your feet.
  • Made with stain resistant leather and mesh-uppers.
  • Durable, slip resistant outsole.
  • And the best part – they come in 5 super fun colors.

I’ve been consistently wearing my pair almost every day for the past month or so. Mostly around the house and while running errands with the kids, any time I need to be “on my toes”, so to speak.

Last week I even ditched my running shoes and tested them out on the treadmill – to see how they would do as a true “athletic” shoes. I  laced them up, and walked on a small incline for a few miles.

While they’re not running shoes, (if you’re a runner – stick to true running shoes), they are amazingly comfortable for “power” walking.

Confidently, the Santa Fe is hands down the most comfortable shoe I’ve ever worn, and I don’t say that lightly. I can, and have, worn them all day from sun up to sun down with happy feet at the end of the day.

They’re a bit on the pricy side, running around $130 a pair – but the saying rings true, you totally get what you pay for with the Santa Fe. If you’re looking for a high quality sneaker that will treat your feet right, these are the shoes for you.

Ok, have I sold you yet?

I wish for Christmas I could gift each and every one of you a pair, they’re just that great. The good news is, Dansko wants to gift ONE of you a pair of Santa Fe sneakers in the size and color of your choice. Enter the Rafflecopter below:

  2. They’d take me…everywhere! And by everywhere, I mean to the grocery, pre-school pickup, probably even church. Because at seven months pregnant, I’m not going many exciting places, but I DO need a good pair of supportive shoes to help my back…and keep me from slipping and sliding outside! :)

  47. Let’s be honest – I’d wear them to take kids to school because that’s what I do. However, I’d love a pair of “around the town” shoes so I can save my running shoes for running. Which I should be doing right now.
