Style, comfort and the perfect size make sense in our world. Always looking for the perfect shoes until you find them and then they grow old and you need a new pair. Dansko has the kind of shoes that you can fall in love with. They will be the shoes that you will wear for a long time and refuse to get rid of. I received their Francine shoes from their Havana Collection and their Jill from the children’s Stapled Clog Collection. As you can see they both are absolutely beautiful! Below are some features of the Francine pair.
- Leather wrapped shock absorbing heel
- Leather sock lining wicks away moisture
- Footbed, with foam insert, provides additional comfort
- Heel height is 3 1/2 inches.
I love these so much! I was sent two pair, both a different size just in case one did not fit me. I’ve been unsure of what one to keep for myself because they both have their differences. I normally wear a size 9 or 9.5. The larger size I received is a size 10.5-11 and the smaller size is a 9.5-10.
Size 10.5-11: I can wear thicker socks with this pair although I have at least an inch gap from my heel to the back part of the heel for the shoe. After wearing them a few times I noticed my heel slipping around a bit in the back so I figured maybe these were just a little too big for me if I have that much of a gap. Still comfortable though!
Size 9.5-10: I tried to wear a thicker pair of socks in these and my right foot actually went numb. They were way too tight. So I tried a thin pair of socks and they fit perfect! I will have to wear stockings with these or like I did before, a thin pair of socks. My foot has enough room in the heel section to where they are not too small or too big. I know if I wear them longer they will stretch a little to give room.
These shoes have kept my feet very warm and I’m excited to wear them with the new dresses I got. They’re going to look amazing! They are definitely perfect for any type of outfit you are wearing, even a pair of shorts if you’re that daring. The soft padding in the shoe helps support your feet and give them relief and comfort while you walk.
Dansko makes the cutest little girl’s shoes! I picked a size 9.5-10 for my toddler since her feet are growing so fast. She currently wears a size 8.5 so I was afraid they would be too small by the time I received them. Instead they were a little too big. I’ll say she has at least a couple more months before these will fit her but they will nonetheless. These are very solid shoes and the black patent leather makes them look very sharp. There’s also a very cute scalloped edging around the foot area that helps the design pop. My toddler loves to put these on and wear them around the house even though they are a little big on her. They are very thick around the bottoms and are perfect for any type of occasion! Below are some facts about these adorable shoes.
- Specifically designs and engineered for kids.
- Roomy toe box.
- Heel height is 1 1/2 inches.
- Leather sock lining. Anti-microbial.
If I could have all of the shoes in their children’s collection, I would. I prefer these shoes for my toddler’s feet when dressing up. They’re very cute and comfortable for my toddler. Plus they’re very well made!
You can purchase the Francine shoe from the Havana Collection for $179.95 and the Jill from the Stapled Clog Collection for $70.
