I was so excited to have a vegan Dansko
clog option that I could wear to work! The canvas vegan Danskos
just aren't an option when working on labor and delivery--I'm sure you can all imagine that L&D is sometimes a messy business and it's of utmost importance that the shoes I wear be washable and not able to absorb any of the aforementioned mess. The problem with these shoes is that the coating that makes them washable and won my heart also makes the shoes totally non-breathable. After wearing them for a few hours around the house, I was noticing the not-so-fresh smell of my own stinky feet--with the shoes still on! Let's not even talk about what happened when I took the shoes off. I don't usually have stinky feet, even after a long day of hiking
, so I'm pretty sure it's the shoes. It's really disappointing, too, because these shoes fit and feel just like the wonderful, arch-supporting, knee-babying, gait-boosting leather Dansko clogs
I've been wearing for years as I run from room to room trying to stay one step ahead of those wily little babies. Despite my desire to go leather-free in my life, these aren't the shoes that are going to make it happen. Better luck to the next person who tries them!
