You are looking at Bossy’s Dansko clogs, which Bossy purchased a decade ago and then proceeded to throw on her feet in some fashion every day since. This is because these clogs live directly inside Bossy’s front door, although considering the size of Bossy’s house approximately everything is located directly inside Bossy’s front door — but in the case of these Dansko clogs, they reside in a little corner at the bottom of the stairs.
Situating these clogs adjacent to the front door facilitates Bossy’s unfettered escapes from the house.
One time Bossy stood outside talking to a neighbor and Bossy was, as always, wearing her clogs. But Bossy never saw herself as a clog person, so when her neighbor admired Bossy’s clogs and told her she should explore other Dansko shoes because they are so comfortable, Bossy was all, “I don’t really wear these,” to which her neighbor lifted an eyebrow and responded, “That’s why they’re so well-worn.”
Bossy doesn’t know exactly why she never considered herself a clog person while actually wearing clogs. It probably has something to do with the image stuck in her head of hospital scrubs dropping down into clogs, or maybe it’s due to the annoying way the multitude of hospital personnel wearing that particular combination are all, Dansko clogs are the most comfortable shoe that ever lived.
Bossy’s thing was always, how could they possibly be more comfortable than a pair of jogging shoes? But you know what? Those nurses and doctors wearing Dansko clogs have it right, even if some of those nurses and doctors are men, and perhaps Bossy doesn’t need to tell you she has a complicated relationship with men in clogs, where complicated equals she tries not to have a relationship with men in clogs.
There’s something about the inner sole of a Dansko that grips the foot, or maybe it’s the way the foot grips the Dansko, but in whichever case, it promotes circulation. Or maybe Bossy just made that up. But one bazillion nurses and doctors can’t be wrong. Because they’re, like, really really smart.
For all of the reasons above, Bossy was thrilled when Onlineshoes.com contacted Bossy about their current Dansko promotion.
Along with a page of stunning new Dansko arrivals, Onlineshoes created a testimonial for Dansko on their video website, which serves up a variety of human-interest stories and endorsements of various brands sold by their company.
Anyway. So Onlineshoes.com offered to send Bossy a pair of Dansko shoes to test drive, and after perusing the New Arrivals section for something close to a century, Bossy finally selected her new shoes, and here she is wearing them!
OK, fine, for those of you unable to concentrate on the cuteness of the sandals when stuffed with plastic morgue forms, here they are in all of their strappy warm summer hopefulness:
Which is when Bossy realized she’d made a mistake. As cute as these sandals are and sister mercy Bossy tried them on and lord are they comfortable although Dear Onlineshoes.com, when wearing these sandals Bossy did not leave her carpeted areas — Bossy realized if she were lucky enough to be given one pair of Dansko shoes, she really should get another pair of clogs since now we know Bossy is quite the clog person. And also Bossy fell in love with this little number with the closed back:
So Bossy contacted Onlineshoes.com, and it may warm your heart to know not only do they offer free shipping, but free exchanges, and a 90-day unconditional return policy.
We love Onlineshoes.com already, but then they decided to love Bossy back by offering to give away one pair of Dansko shoes to one lucky Bossy reader.
