April showers bring may flowers, but they also bring warmer weather and sometimes, wet feet. Pippa by Dansko might just be your best and stylish option when showers fall, and certainly when the sun is shining.
Dansko is known for the iconic, high quality, leather clogs that are beloved by doctors and nurses, chefs, and anyone who has to be on their feet all day long, But the new “Pippa” clogs are not leather, they’re a fashion-forward style with an openwork design and made from lightweight, long-wearing elastomers (vinyl, to the rest of us) . A sturdy, blown EVA footbed that’s molded to help support your foot, plus a polyurethane insert that helps absorb the shock as you walk (something like what goes on in a running shoe) make the super-comfortable. The molded tread design also gives the shoe added traction.
I was a bit dubious that anything synthetic would be comfortable for any length of time, but Since Pippa has a unique, molded design, your feet won’t sweat in them, and although the rain will penetrate the delicate, open-work design of the clog, a quick wipe with a paper towel will make them dry and comfy again the minute you get to your destination.
