Onlineshoes. com and Dansko Unveil Contest for Hardworking Soles

Onlineshoes. com and Dansko Unveil Contest for Hardworking Soles

Onlineshoes. com and Dansko Unveil Contest for Hardworking Soles Enter to Win A Pair of Free Dansko Professional Clogs or Other Dansko Shoes, Sandals or Boots--Valued up to $250--From December 7 through December 20

Seattle, Wash. (PRWEB) December 7, 2010

Onlineshoes. com and Dansko shoes are well aware of the demands that certain professions place on feet. As the peak of the holiday season draws near, the two companies will be joining forces to bring relief to those who spend much of the workday walking and standing instead of sitting: Nurses, doctors, technicians and other medical professionals; teachers at all levels of instruction; chefs, servers and other restaurant and hospitality industry workers; and more. (Read on to learn more about Dansko's most popular comfort shoes and find out how to enter to win your own pair at the Onlineshoes. com blog between December 7 and December 20.)

Dansko styles from certain collections, chiefly the Dansko Professional Collection--often referred to generally as 'Dansko nursing shoes' or Dansko clogs--are beneficial for common, painful foot ailments including arthritis, diabetes, bunions, over - or under-pronation and plantar fasciitis. Many Dansko clogs and Dansko shoes for women and men carry the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) Seal of Acceptance, a recognition awarded to footwear that promotes good foot health. (Note: Those suffering from minor to severe foot problems are advised to consult a doctor before selecting footwear intended to alleviate specific conditions.)

Women's Dansko shoes, sandals and boots are offered in an increasingly wide range of styles, but a handful stand head and shoulders above the rest in popularity, for the simple reason of comfort. With enhanced shock absorption, energy return and foot-cradling support, Dansko shoes keep feet feeling nearly as good at the end of a long day as they did at the beginning.

The standard-bearer for hours-on-your-feet comfort is the Dansko Professional, from the Dansko Stapled Collection. Dansko may come out with new, wild colors and exotic finishes every year, but this basic slip-on is like a trusted best friend, a go-with-everything classic to complement every woman's work or leisure wardrobe. In fact, the Dansko Professional is the shoe largely responsible for opening up clog-wearing to a wider U. S. male audience and bringing into the mainstream: Men's Dansko shoes include not only closed-back clogs and open-back clogs, but also ankle boots, casual loafers and lace-up oxfords that add high quality and unparalleled comfort to any men's footwear wardrobe.

For occasions when a little bit of dressy flash is called for, the Dansko Sonja in patent leather blends casual comfort with a sophisticated finish. The added bonus is that splashes and spills are easily wiped away from the shiny patent upper, so it always looks as good as new.

The excellent Dansko Ingrid clog combines the best of both worlds, offering the convenience of a slip-on plus the security of a closed-back clog, thanks to a convertible strap: Leave the strap over the padded instep as a decorative detail, or let it out a few notches and flip it back to secure the heel. That degree of versatility makes it one of the most popular styles of Dansko shoes.

From the Sausalito Collection comes a twist on the closed-back Dansko Professional slip-on that boasts a more feminine silhouette, the Dansko Solstice. A strap-and-button accent, notched vamp and an angled topline--not to mention a touch of elastic goring for comfortable flex and easy on/off--make the Solstice a stand-out mix of support and chic style.

"Dansko shoes in general and Dansko Professional Clogs in particular have an outstanding reputation as must-have shoes for professions that require long hours on the feet, but they're also worn every day by people who simply love being comfortable. Not only are they available in a wide range of colors, patterns and finishes, but the basics are also offered in wide and narrow widths, so virtually anyone can find a pair that fits perfectly," says Onlineshoes. com Senior Buyer Michelle Juno.

About the Contest: In honor of hardworking feet everywhere, Onlineshoes. com will be giving away two pairs of women's or men's Dansko shoes. To enter, visit the Onlineshoes. com blog Get in Gear contest and answer the question, "What person in your life--friend, family member or even yourself--most deserves the gift of Dansko comfort, and why?" (200 words max). Entries will be accepted from December 7, 2010 through December 20, 2010; the two winners selected at random will receive a free pair of Dansko Professional clogs, shoes or boots of their choice, with a value of up to $250.
