I know this post sounds like another vapid maternity leave post, but I'm actually here, typing next to my sleeping (although he's in the process of waking) baby.
But I really want to talk about shoes.
It's a funny topic for me because unlike many bloggers I know (and non-blogging women, too), I am not a shoe person. I spend a lot of money to get durable, comfortable shoes, and then I wear them for years. For real. Case in point: the shoes pictured above are pretty much the shoes I wear on a daily basis. The picture was taken in India in 2005 (and I actually got the shoes a year earlier!).
For the past seven years, Dansko--the shoes of nurses and teachers--has been my go-to brand. They are expensive, but the clogs last forever, and they are good on my feet. I'm convinced they've helped me avoid the Curse of the Bunions that plagues the rest of the women in my family.
But now I'm on the lookout for new sandals, and Dansko is totally letting me down. Everything looks so dowdy! I'm thinking it might be time to branch into a new brand.
But, I still want shoes that are comfortable, durable, and good for my feet.
Any shoe brand recommendations that fit the bill?
