Have the worst feet - wide and high arches. I usually buy cheap shoes and after struggling for a few months I abandon them. My friend’s family has benefited from my bad decisions over the years. Finally I decided to invest in some good quality shoes. Headed over to Dardano’s to see what they have in terms of boots. I’ve purchased shoes from here before and while expensive, they were comfortable to me. I was in luck, they did have boots from several different brands. I scoped out the different styles and once I knew what I wanted to try on, I sought out a sales person. The store was a little busy but luckily one had just finished up with a customer and was available. She went to get what I wanted to try and I wandered into the discount nook. Saw a pair of short boots which looked promising as well so I brought it out to get the partner to try. After trying on some boots I settled on a pair by Dansko. They were comfortable and stylish. I had to choose between practical flat boots and a slight heel. Ice was a consideration but after much deliberation I went with the slight heel as they felt better on my arches. Hopefully I won’t slip. But my legs look amazing! Great customer service and I had a slight issue but they took care of it. So while I cringed at the price, I’m happy to report that while making me look fabulous, the boots are also comfortable even after being on my feet all day. And as a bonus, the store has a small storefront with sale shoes but it’s only open certain hours on the weekend. Check them out!
