If my house was burning, I would save my Danskos first.
When I first started in nursing, I wore running shoes. Big mistake. My feet were absolutely throbbing at the end of the day. I changed to Danskos once I saved enough money, and now that's ALL I wear. Dansko
clogs, Dansko boots, sandals, dress shoes. There really is no comparison.
Some people report that Danskos will "turn their ankle", and in fact, a good friend of mine suffered a distal tibial fx when she stepped off the curb to cross the street, and her ankle went sideways. I haven't experienced this. When I was deployed at Katrina, I played soccer in my Danskos!
