As a healthcare professional, I am on my feet 12 hours a day, 3 to 5 times a week. Dansko professional clogs are the perfect prescription for anyone spending a vast majority of their working hours in an standing position. Having problem ankles since childhood, I was plagued when it came time to find the right shoe for my professional life, and the Dansko clog hit the spot. These shoes have allowed me to return home from a long day at work without feeling as if my feet were on fire. In addition to their orthopaedic design, without the orthopaedic look, Dansko clogs are stylish and come in a variety of leathers, cloths, and unique designs. They are a steal for the money as many of my original purchases are still paired with jeans for a casual look. Believe me, you will get years of good use out of these shoes.
