I've finally given in to wearing Danskos for work. Being on my feet for 12 hour shifts means that special attention needs to be paid to my feet! I've worn tennis-shoes through nursing school and until now and have come home each day with the sorest feet, knees, and back. These shoes have literally changed my life! I got the new Dansko ProXP version (extra cushion is included in this version) and have happily worn them for a week. I'm convinced they are what any person who is on their feet all day should at least try.
I also love these red-brown shoes below. They'd work for a teacher or someone in a more professional setting. Clogs definitely have a different look that may not be the most fashionable, but the comfort pays off! I've noticed that even my standing posture is improved just from a solid, proper shoe.
If you work at a hospital, many places give a discount. FYI.
