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.
