This is a picture of the Dansko Professional clog. My favorite shoe in the whole world.
I have three pairs — one black, one navy, and one brown. For nine months of the year, pretty much every single day I am wearing my Dansko clogs. (Then in summer I go nuts and like to have many different pairs of thongs sandals to wear each day.) I see them everywhere I go, and it amuses me to realize that those women in their Dansko clogs are members of my tribe. Teachers, nurses, waitresses, doctors, dentists, chefs, and middle-class women everywhere wear this shoe.
But alas, I may have to venture into the broader world of shoes, as my ankles have been bothering me off and on for a few months, and I fear that wearing the same type of shoe every single day might not be a good idea. What do you all suggest I look for? What other great shoe options are out there, with a bit more cushiness than my beloved Danskos?
