Mommy & Me Shoes {Dansko} + giveaway

I’m seeing more and more people wearing Dansko shoes as well as more shoe stores carrying their line. If you aren’t as familiar with them, they’re the leading women’s comfort brand. I’ll admit this, the Valerie shoe is my first pair of Dansko shoes that I’ve tried on for myself. I’m a pretty good tester as well because I have extremely narrow feet with very high arches. If my feet don’t have a shoe with proper support, my dogs bark! I loved that I could adjust the width of the shoe with a buckle so that it fit my foot perfectly. As for comfort, they’re unbelievable. My arches were supported, there’s cushioning when you walk and they’re just a wonderful shoe for every day wear. For Mother’s Day, we’re featuring their Valerie and Valentine shoes for a Mother/Daughter shoe review and giveaway for you. These are part of Dansko’s Sanibel collection, which is a light weight sneaker collection that debuted last year with a huge response.

The Valerie shoe has a sneaker outsole with the design of a Mary Jane. The shoe has a removable contoured footbed and rubber outsole. Basically that means that they’re insanely comfortable. With my super sensitive feet and also being almost 8 months pregnant, I’m telling you that these are great shoes to wear daily. If I think they’re comfortable, when I’m so extremely UNcomfortable, imagine what they’ll feel like to your feet! The Valerie is made of a canvas and available in a handful of colors all while being vegan approved. I’m wearing the Sand color in the photo below.

For your Daughter, the Valentine is an adorable Mary Jane that is the perfect little mirror image to Mommy’s Valentine shoe. I love that the straps adjust by velcro (versus a buckle) so that she gets the perfect snug fit. This shoe is made with the same canvas in a fun assortment of colors. My daughter is wearing the purple ones in the photo below. These are also vegan approved. As for sizes, the shoes are slightly wider than some shoes. That being said, I would recommend getting their true size versus going a size up for them to grow into. Their true size will likely have room to grow in it length wise as well.

Here are some additional points about both shoes:

  • Lightweight construction
  • Slip resistant rubber outsole
  • The Valerie has a range of uppers: box leathers, canvas and vegan options
  • The Valentine has vegan washable canvas uppers.
  • The Valerie heel height is 1 1/4 inches while the Valentine is 1 inch

Head over to Dansko to learn more about the Valerie and Valentine shoes. Your daughter will absolutely adore looking just like her Mommy. Soak it up now and enjoy it because all too soon they’ll want the exact opposite of what you like :)



One lucky winner will receive a pair of Valerie shoes for Mom and a pair of Valentine for your daughter for Mother’s Day. Happy Mother’s Day to you from Dansko!

    Thank you, I’ve just been looking for info about this subject for ages and yours is the best I have found out till now. But, what about the bottom line? Are you certain concerning the source?

    Virtually all of whatever you say happens to be supprisingly precise and that makes me wonder why I hadn’t looked at this with this light before. This particular piece really did turn the light on for me as far as this particular issue goes. Nonetheless at this time there is actually 1 factor I am not really too comfy with and whilst I attempt to reconcile that with the central idea of your position, allow me observe just what the rest of your subscribers have to point out.Very well done.

    Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thanks
