Thank you to the sponsor for providing a pair of Dansko Elise Sneakers to kick up my fall fashion! All words and opinions are my own.

I’ve always been a bit of a cliche when it comes to shoes in that I love them.  I have spent many an hour wandering around shoe stores, browsing online, and looking through catalogs (how many companies even send out a catalog any more?).  I’m not sure if this is due in part to the fact that at just over 5’0, I’ve always looked to shoes to give me some height so as to not disappear in a crowd (and field a few less “how’s the weather down there?” jokes).

A small problem with my shoe habits, however, is that I tend to fall on the side of “ohmygoshadorable” rather than “wowthesearecomfy”.  I’m not going to lie – in my life I’ve owned more than a few pairs of shoes that never got more than a couple of wears from them because of how badly they hurt my feet.  You can usually tell with a shoe if all it needs is some breaking in, or if nothing on this planet will make them tolerable.

Dansko Elise Sneakers from the Sedona Fall Collection

When you find a company that makes a shoe that is both stylish and comfortable, well that’s a treasure you don’t want to overlook.  You also shouldn’t keep it to yourself.  Which is why today I’m excited to introduce you a company that checks all the boxes, and that’s Dansko.

If you’re not familiar with Dansko they were founded when a husband and wife team traveled to Denmark looking for horses, but instead found the most comfortable shoes in a tiny European shoe shop.  They loved them so much that they gave some to friends, who gave them to friends, who… you know.  A shoe company was born and now more than 20 years later Dansko is a 100% employee-owned company.  And while it started with their legendary clogs, their line now includes much more.

Part of that “much more” includes sneakers, with which I am now totally smitten.  I recently received a pair of the Elise sneakers which compliment the Sedona fall line perfectly.  The sneakers are suede which, to me, elevates the look of the sneakers past traditional athletic sneakers and makes them look fun and classy.  If suede isn’t your thing, though, you can also choose smooth leather.

Dansko Elise Sneakers are Comfortable Whether Shopping or Relaxing

The Elise sneakers come in ten color combinations to match your mood and outfit.  I received the navy sneakers, but I may just have to add to my collection: I’m in love with both the black/purple and slate pairs, too.  They may be the most comfortable sneakers I’ve ever worn, too.  If you follow me on Instagram you may have caught a few #DayInDansko photos.  I put them to the test on a full day of shopping and chasing after Bubbles playing outside.  My feet didn’t bark once; in fact, at the end of the day they felt great.

You don’t have to take my word for it.  The awesome folks at Dansko are offering one of you the chance to win a pair of your own Elise sneakers – and you get to pick the color!  Giveaway closed – congrats Cindi H!

What is your favorite Dansko item?
