works cited: dress c/o spotted moth; dansko clogs; thrifted belt and bag
These shoes are incredibly practical, provide good arch support, and are comfortable for miles of walking, which makes me suspect they could be categorized by my mother's aphorism about her closet: "never in style, never out of style." But Christopher told me the danskos were his favorite pair in my closet, and THEN two 13 year-old girls stopped me on the street and complimented my shoes, asking me where I got them, and THEN my super-chic tattooed hair-cutter was wearing a pair of open-toed Danskos. Plus, they've been on the Sartorialist. Have the tides turned? Are sensible shoes acceptable--nay, perhaps even stylish--in public? Or am I skewed by being in the company of nerds?
P.S. They no longer make this exact style, but here are three others I like as much if not more than my own pair: 1, 2, 3.
