blank'/> A LITTLE BIT OF LACQUER: Pick Your Perfect Dansko- Closed

October 30, 2013

Pick Your Perfect Dansko- Closed

Hi all!! Today I'm partnering with Dansko to give one of my lucky readers a pair of Dansko clogs!! If you've spent anytime in the hospital, you know there are pretty much two camps of people in scrubs - those who wear them with sneakers, and those who wear them with Danskos (and then you'll have a random plastic surgeon who only wears cowboy boots, but we'll save that story for another day). For a while I belonged to the first camp - sneakers all day every day. Until during one of my vascular surgeries, while checking the suture on a bypass graft we got blood everywhere, including my mesh sneakers... and my sock, I'd later find out. Ewwww. And there are worse bodily fluids, like during bowel surgeries... mm hmm. It was time for clogs, and I've never looked back. 


I'm wearing the XP clogs in Whiskey, a color that's no longer available, but this brown is almost exact!

Browse through their Stapled Clog collection or the XP collection (my personal favorite - memory foam footbed, slip-resistant bottoms, and lighter overall) and leave a comment below saying which pair you'd choose if you won! Tweet about this giveaway or share it on Facebook and leave an extra comment saying you did for more chances to win! 

{As a side note, I love speaking from my own experiences which is why I use a hospital/surgery example, but I've heard these are widely used in the service industry, retail, etc. - pretty much anyone who's on their feet for ungodly chunks of time! And gentleman who read the blog, this is of course open to you too!} I'll randomly choose a winner next Wednesday!

  8. The Professional Wine Full Grain Leather look like they'd be beautiful and comfy as I walk around the hospital all day. I'm a med student and as I spend more and more time in clinic/at the hospital I'm realizing that ballet flats don't offer enough support and I love the idea of easily washable shoes that can be worn with scrubs or with dress pants.

I would choose the Pro XP espresso pull up leather if I won. Best of luck with everything!
