And very often, they’re the boots I gravitate to any time I’m strolling out the door and simply need one thing cozy and simple.
Dansko not makes my particular boots. There are a number of pre-worn pairs on eBay or you may verify Poshmark. The newer model of those boots is JUST as snug (and on MAJOR sale), however they do have a unique vibe in design. Hoping Dankso will carry these again in additional colours subsequent yr!
