As you may be able to tell by the title’s exclamation points, I’m excited about springtime! This happens to me every year. Once the weather starts getting nice, and the winter coats get retired in the closet, and I can start leaving the house in skirts without needing tights underneath them, I get giddy.
So what better time to have a new pair of spring-y sandals to try on and review for all of you?! And even more, what better time for all of you to get a shot at sprucing up your spring shoe wardrobe with a new pair of free shoes?!
Love the cut-out in the heel! Love that this gives the look of a retro wooden clog with added shock-absorption! Love the extra 2 3/4″ of height! Love that I can wear this to walk and stand in all day and still be comfy and stylish!
A few words of counsel after getting my Thea’s: the green’s lighter than this picture led me to believe. You want proof, see here:
Despite the grainy photos, I think you can tell these are more of a lime than a pistachio green color, which actually made them seem more spring-like than I was expecting.
As far as the fit goes, I cannot say enough about how good the arch support is on these. Keeps my feet (which usually require inserts and orthotics for my pronating arches) very very happy.
Also, my feet are very wide at the base of my toes, and the first wear of my new Thea’s was on the tight side at both sides of my feet (especially my right one, which is larger). This gave me some slight pause, since the leather is pretty sturdy, and I wasn’t sure how easily it would give. HOWEVER, much to my delight, the leather loosened up after only a few wearings, so that by the time the above pics were taken (wearing #3, including to a green-themed St. Patrick’s Day party), I wasn’t having the rubbing problem anymore. Hooray!
OK, so why should you care that I love my new Dansko’s?
You should care because YOU CAN WIN A PAIR OF YOUR VERY OWN! (clearly I cannot contain my springtime excitement)
