UPDATE 3/30/12: Jennifer Hughes, you're our Dansko giveaway winner. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get these to you. Congratulations!
I’ve got to tell you, Mamas. Hats are not only pretty and comfortable—they are tasty too! We here at Ain’t No Mom Jeans have been snacking on hats (or crow) a lot lately because there’s been some talk surrounding a certain comfort footwear brand—namely Dansko—on this blog: they’re soooo comfortable, but a thing of shame, to be hidden under scrubs, Chefwear and boot cut or flare denim. Dansko has responded to our biased banter with not one, but now TWO generous giveaways for our readers. I submit for your approval (and mine) the Dansko spring footwear line. It is fab under flares and it is worthy of skinnies and skirts.
When Dansko approached ANMJ for another give away, I was wary. I perused their spring line and was delighted by what I found: stellar details with seventies-inspired braided and tooled leather, brass nail heads, rich colors and fresh designs. I was torn between the Mirabel line Tori, Tru or Tasha, and the Rio line Randi, Rowena or Ryder, and I was shocked to find six pairs of crazy comfortable but heightening (I am not a woman of stature, after all) sandals that I would not only accept as a consideration but would definitely buy in a store at full retail. It was a difficult choice, but I finally decided on the Rowena and I’m so glad I did.
These kicks are not only hot, but they are crazy-comfortable. They were my first choice for a three-hour, standing-room-only Radiohead show hubs and I recently went to, and in spite of their three-inch heel, I came home with feet that felt not just decent, but actually good . . . almost massaged. Like (gasp!) my closet Dansko clogs. I wore them with destroyed Hudson flares and an appropriately (for Radiohead) drab ruched (postpartum muffin top) tee.
The neutral color, tooled leather and retro styling are more than flare-ready, though. I’ve pulled them off with my Naem skinnies (above left) AND my fav Current Elliott leopard print stiletto jeans (left). They’re also great with a high-low or mini skirt and even shorts with the right styling, but my pasty, postpartum legs are far from camera-ready as yet (stay tuned, I’m working on it).
Good luck and don't forget to like us on Facebook!
