The Shoes

So, I was a skeptic. I admit it freely. Everyone told me about these clogs made by Dansko and how my feet and back would NOT hurt after wearing these same shoes for the entire conference.

I didn't believe them. BUT, I bought them because really what's the harm, right?!

It's true - they were the most amazing shoes. My feet didn't hurt once and my back lasted the entire event. It only started hurting after I made the unwise decision to wear my computer bag for 4 hours!

So, if you are in need of tried and true (and tested) shoes for your next event, and you don't mind a slightly ugly shoe to hide under your slacks - try the Dansko clog.

Do you have other shoes you like for events? If so, please share!!!

Ahh, the importance of the right shoes for conference, event and tradeshow organizers. In this case, the better brands for your feet, especially if you walking or standing all day at an event, are more expensive and worth it!

I'm a raving fan of Eccos and Cole Haan with Nike Air Technology. Thankfully, both brands also make very tasteful and nice looking shoes too.

This is the very reason why I don't wear pumps on the trade show floor anymore.....
