Dansko 20th Anniversary Review and Giveaway

mail.google.comDansko shoes are my favorite shoes!  They are the only shoes I can wear without orthotic inserts, and when I am going to be on my feet all day long they are always my first choice.   I wear my Dansko sandals during the summer, and this time of year the Professional Clogs are my favorite choice.  Right now Dansko is celebrating their 20th Anniversary, and to help celebrate they are sponsoring a great Way Of Life promotion.

During the month of November Dansko will donate $1 to charity for every person that submits to its Way of Life website.  The idea behind the Way of Life promotion is to reflect on words that inspire.  To start the site Dansko first created a list of words reflecting their core values and commitment.  Phrases they selected include,  “Own Your Happiness,” “Make a Difference” and “Work Wonders”. 

Now they want your input, and to learn what words inspire you!  To encourage fans Dansko will  donate $1 to one of six charities for each submission.   You get to select the charity that will receive the donation from among these great organizations:

  • The Conservation Alliance
  • Teach for America
  • American Red Cross
  • Action for Healthy Kids
  • Save the Children
  • Heifer International
    dansko 20th anniversary clogsIn addition Dansko has also introduced a limited edition 20th Anniversary Clog, which was designed to include words reflecting Dansko’s “way of life”.   They sent me a pair to try out, and they are really cool looking.  The words are subtle enough that from a distance they just look like a pattern.  In the two days I have been wearing them I have already gotten a number of comments on how good they look.  The design was inspired partly by wood grain, and it does have a wood look to it.  I love the rich brown color, and my other pair of Dansko clogs is blue, so now I have a nice variety of color in my shoe choices.  Of course they are just as comfortable as I expected them to be, and I was able to wear them all day without having to worry about breaking them in. 

The Dansko Way of Life promotion runs from November 1 through November 30. Dansko will make a $1 donation for each contribution up to a total donation amount of $25,000.

To help encourage participation in the Way of Life promotion Dansko has offered to giveaway a pair of clogs to one of my readers!  If you’d like to enter first comment on the Way of Life site.  Then come back here and leave me a comment telling me you entered, and share the words that inspire you.  The winner can select from any style in the Professional clog series.  That is it, one entry per household, and US only, giveaway ends on 11/28 at 11:59pm.

Disclosure: I received clogs to review, all opinions are my own.

    I entered at their site “Live for yourself, not others” Thank you for the chance to win a pair of these. They look very comfortable.

    I entered tagged as DD “Im Here & Loving Every Minute of it!
    those words mean a lot to me, I was pretty ill for a while… when I started feeling better I was so happy to be alive that I had shirts, ink pen’s & hats made that say “Im Here! Living Life & Loving Every Minute of it!”

  7. Elaine Hartman says

    My comment was ‘live simply’. My Dansko’s help me to do that. I never have to think about my shoes. Just grab a pair of my Dansko’s and I’m on my way, looking great and with happy, happy feet!

    • Jill W says

      Ooops, I read it wrong! I thought I was supposed to say what someone else left that inspired me. So what I left was “Pretty in spandex!”

  9. Kathy Davis says

    I entered on the Way of Life. I simply stated that I follow Philippians 2:3.

    I couldn’t write it out because it was too many words but here it is: Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.

  10. Nicole B says

    I shared “Be joyful in hope!” the rest of the verse is “patient in affliction, faithful in prayer” – but I couldn’t get that all in in less than 35 characters! :-) Thanks for the giveaway!
