"I’ve come to not just tolerate Dansko clogs, but actually consider them beautiful — a kind of appreciation usually reserved for natural objects like pine cones or elk antlers. Dansko clogs have a tool-like utility; if the Whole Earth Catalog were still around, surely it would stock them. I truly believe that the Museum of Modern Art should acquire a pair for its permanent collection."
Nice to find an article about Dansko clogs in the NYT Style Magazine.
The author, Alice Gregory, has had 6 pairs of Dansko clogs in a period of 15 years.
I discovered Dansko clogs just about as soon as they came out, which was in 1990. I still have the original pair — in sand-colored suede — and almost my other pairs, which would be difficult to count. Let's see... I think 16 — with 4 no longer in rotation.
I can get extremely brand-loyal when it comes to clothes. In the early 90s, I became an devotee of the clothing brand CP Shades, and I first saw Dansko clogs at a CP Shades store in Chicago. The saleswoman said they'd never carried any shoes before, and now, for the first time, there was a shoe that belonged with their clothes. That's how I got hooked.
Here'sa link to buy Dansko shoes at Amazon.
These shoes are great for: 1. standing, and 2. kicking off and slipping back into. So they work extremely well if you have a job where you don't really walk that much but you do stand and sit a lot and you like to get your shoes off when you sit.
