Based on a very true recent story.
Saturday is errand day. Between getting caught up at work, I make my rounds of errands.
The forecast this particular Saturday is for snowpocalypse. The metro area braced for a blizzard, but it wasn’t showing up on my side of town just yet. To go or not to go, I asked and answered myself...again and again and, yawn, again. I was beginning to irritate me. With resolution I pushed “send” on an email at 2:01 p.m. and head out the office door pointing my car toward Dardano’s on Colorado Boulevard just north of the I-25 interchange.Read More

We remember a time when only the hippest of the hipsters wore clogs. Not everybody felt they could carry them off but most everybody, men, women and children, wanted to. The ease of slipping them on, the unique look and the fun slight lift they gave a person because of the thick sole... It was pretty cool! Then it seemed that only nurses wore clogs because they protected their feet and they were exceptionally comfortable for people on their feet all day. Whatever the association with clogs, they have remained a steady staple in footwear for generations and not just for hipsters or medical personnel. Why? For all the reasons we just mentioned!Read More

You may have heard people talking about the cost-per-wearing of an item. The idea, when you get down to it, is to justify the expense of something by figuring out how many times you think you’ll wear it, divided by the cost of the item, resulting in a price that sounds a whole lot more palatable than the amount of money you are about to plunk down. Ironically, the math is typically done over something very trendy that the shopper wouldn’t be caught dead a year from now (or even a season from now). But when you are paying a reasonable amount on something, like, say, shoes, that you’ll still be proud to wear past this season’s fashion trends, then it really is an investment worth making. So how can you tell the difference?Read More

Colorado’s fall weather rages hot one day and cold the next. Heat nostalgia can inspire wearing flip flops whenever the weather tops 60 way, way past Labor Day. Then again, the new fall boots are so sinfully delicious, that it’s hard not to start sporting them in August.
Rule No. 1 in fall seasonal transition: keep your pedicure on, girl! If it’s a sandal day, you don’t want to look like you should wear boots.
Rule No. 2: keep a think pair of anklets on hand to wear under your new boots to minimize blisters and to keep the sweat at bay. Wearing suede in 70 degrees can induce overheated feet.
Our top recommendations for transitional footwear this season include:
ECCO’s BIOM Lite Mary Jane in (now $90.00) has fall colors of Silver/Black/Purple are PC—perfectly colored and perfectly comfortable. The rubber outsole for traction to keeps you on the move on a variety of surfaces, as the weather changes.
Pretty cutouts and a sling back help keep your foot cool in warmer temperatures as does the full leather lining that wicks away excess moisture in the Kalso Earth - Move (now $83.00). The negative heel design puts your forefoot at a 3.7 degree incline to promote perfect posture, while the textured rubber outsole creates traction to keep every step stable.
The sexy peep-toe design and pleating of the Sofft Madeline in Black (now $60.00) features a ¾” platform to take the pressure off the balls of your feet for more comfort. A generously padded footbed features a built-in arch, heel and forefoot cushion. The insole is also lined with leather to aid in wicking away moisture.
The Pluggz Iris in Black (now $98.00) takes you from hot to cool. Full grain leather uppers are accented with tiny floral cutouts that allow comfortable airflow. An antimicrobial lining fights off unwanted stains and odor. Plus, Pluggz has a signature grounding design featuring a rubber and carbon plug located under the weight bearing portion of your foot, which makes contact with the earth in order to promote the flow of electrons from the earth to our bodies!
For Men Only:
The Naot Chief in Oily Brown ($199.00) doesn’t just make the transition between seasons. It makes the transition between work and play. These shoes will also get even more comfortable over time thanks to foot beds constructed from cork and natural latex that molds to feet over time. Suede sock linings aid moisture wicking and evaporation, taking the comfortably between temperatures. The oiled nubuck and leather upper is water resistant so let the cloudy skies bring it on!
Looking professional doesn’t have a season so the Johnston and Murphy Decatur Wing Tip in Brown (now $91.00) lets you look the part year-round. As you may know, foot width changes a bit as the seasons change so the lace-up design accommodates those changes all year, keeping you comfortable.
Brooks Mean’s Beast in Grey/Black/Red ($139.95) looks as good pounding the pavement in the heat as it does in the cold. This shoe is known for its ultimate control and stability, designed specifically for runners with low or flat arches and excessive pronation. Full length Brook DNA technology protects your foot from toe to heel.
The Klogs Abilene in Black ($69.95) wipes clean with a damp cloth to keep them looking like new. The uppers of this sleek-looking clog are made from polyurethane which means it’s durable and flexible. An anti-microbial treatment to the insole keeps feet feeling fresh and smelling fresh all day. The slip-resistant and non-marking outsole provides traction on wet or dry surfaces, regardless of what the weather throws your way.
With Dardano’s vast selection of shoes for men and women, you can pick the styles that you feel confident wearing all year. Sure, we’d love to know that you have a closet full of Dardano’s shoes but mostly we want you to own shoes you really love, that fit you well and serve you well through a variety of activities, terrain and weather, season to season, year to year.

At the end of a long day on your feet or in uncomfortable shoes, you can’t wait to sit down, slip off your shoes and let your feet recover. But sometimes, the pain in your feet doesn’t go away by merely taking a load off. Our feet are complex mechanical structures connected intricately to your legs by the ankle joints. Each foot and ankle is built from 26 bones connected by 33 joints held together and operated by over 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Because of their location and the jobs they do, your feet and ankles are subject to more routine injury and illness than any other structural part of your body.Read More

What makes a shoe something really special? It’s the little things that take it up a notch and make you more likely to choose that pair from your closet.

The ECCO Story
Giving up the security of his full-time management position at a shoe factory in Copenhagen, ECCO founder Karl Toosbuy began living his dream of running his own progressive comfort footwear brand. His commitment to develop innovative products and re-invent production methods lead him to the creation of ECCO. With a staff of only 16 employees, ECCO was launched in the 1970s. Achieving immediate success, ECCO was the first footwear brand to design shoes that specifically fit the anatomical shape of the foot, bucking hundreds of years of traditional shoemaking techniques.
Karl Toosbuy made it his mission to challenge himself to do things in a different way, resulting in first-class quality results. This mission gradually developed into what has become the ECCO culture; an uncompromising determination and commitment to achieve goals and objectives. Though ECCO started from humble beginnings it has now grown to serve over 50 international markets and has a staff of over 17,00 employees. Though it has matured into a world-class brand in the last 40 years, ECCO still remains true to its original vision by continuing to be “ shoemakers striving to make first-class products”. Because of this core ethic, year after year they never cease to produce products that measure up to the highest quality standards, provide a great fit and epitomize affordable luxury.
Innovation is at the forefront of the design process for every pair of shoes that ECCO manufactures. From the beginning, Karl Toosbuy strived to design shoes that didn’t need to be broken in, fit better to the unique contours of the foot and allow for natural movement. Today ECCO is a world leader in Direct Injection Technology, which provides a more accurate fit to your foot. The newest innovation to the ECCO line is the BIOM System. This system works by supporting the natural forward motion of the foot, not inhibiting it with excessive padding and motion restrictions. BIOM is now available in four distinct categories to fit your lifestyle, Run, Train, Explore, & Golf.
Dardano’s Shoes has been a proud ECCO retailer for over 5 years!Read More

OTZShoes was created in 2005 with a vision, inspired by an article written by Petr Hlavacek describing the oldest shoes ever found. Those shoes belonging to the now famous, Otzi Man, found preserved in ice on the Austrian/Italian border after thousands of years. Dating back to 3300 BC Otzi’s shoes were considered rather advanced considering the time period. The shoes were made of deer skin, sewn to a durable bear skin sole. Inside was a woven net filled with dried grass and moss, for warmth and comfort. OTZShoes visionary, Ludo, set out to redesign the simple sophistication of Otzi’s footwear. Replacing the deer skin with top quality materials in fashionable colors as well as combining today’s comfort and technology, the concept of OTZ Shoes and the OTZ-300GMS was born.Read More

A new spin on an old classic!
It’s a story that goes back more than 40 years…
Anne Kalsø was born in the Faroe Islands off Denmark in 1905. Her life was defined by a deep immersion in the study of yoga, and the fundamental belief that wellness principles needn’t be reserved for just one aspect of an individual’s life, but could be wholly integrated as part of an everyday existence.
Kalsø ‘s passion for yoga led her to study in Switzerland and eventually in Santos, Brazil. It was there, in 1957, that she observed the excellent posture of indigenous Brazilians, and the impressions left by their bare footprints as they walked through beach sand. She observed that the footprints laid were deeper in the heels than in the toes. This natural body position resonated with the thoughtful Kalsø . It echoed a formative yoga pose she knew well – Tadasana (the ‘Mountain’ pose).

Custom Orthotics FAQ with Dardano’s Shoes Board Certified Pedorthist, Darin Robinson
Custom Orthotic Photo Slide Below
1. What is a Custom Orthotic?
A custom orthotic is a device that is intended to mechanically compensate for a foot condition by aiding correcting shape or function of the foot to provide easier movement capability or to reduce pain. Made from casted molds of the individual’s feet, the finished orthotic is placed in the patient’s shoe to support the foot and eliminate abnormal foot biomechanics by keeping the foot properly aligned. Depending on the patient’s needs, the orthotic may have padding to cushion the foot and make it more comfortable.
2. Who can benefit from wearing orthotics and why?
Anyone can benefit from custom orthotics whether you are having foot pain or not. Custom orthotics can maintain or correct skeletal position and reduce ground reaction forces.
3. What is the custom orthotic process?
- Foot evaluation and gait analysis with Pedorthist.
- Foam impressions are made of the individual’s feet.
- Cast are made, Pedorthist crafts orthotics with appropriate materials (1 week turnaround)
- A final fitting is done where final adjustments are made. Your Dardano’s Custom Orthotics’ are now ready to go and you are on your way to ultimate foot comfort!
- A check-up appointment, with Pedorthist, is scheduled for 2-3 weeks after fitting appointment.
4. Custom orthotics vs. over the counter inserts?
Over the counter inserts are fabricated from different density cellular sponge and/or foam rubber materials providing arch support and some shock absorption. Custom Orthotics’ improve biomechanical and functional control or support. If you can bend an insert in half, it is nothing more than an insole.
5. Prices for Dardano’s Custom Orthotics?
$325 for first pair
$230 for second pair
$150 for third pair
*Prices for the second and third must be purchased within 30 days of casting.
6. Turnaround time on Custom Orthotics?
Turnaround time is usually within 7-10 days.
7. What shoes do Custom Orthotics work best in?
Shoes may vary depending on function of the orthotic. Usually shoes with removable liners that have similar width and girth of the custom orthotic. It is always best to be fit with the orthotic before purchasing new shoes to ensure correct fitting. At Dardano’s Shoes we offer a large selection of footwear that will accommodate your new orthotics including: sandals, walking shoes, boots, dress shoes and more!
8. What are the different types of Custom Orthotic available?
There are many types of Custom Orthotics depending on the condition of the individual’s feet. There are two main types- Functional and Accommodative. Functional Orthotics are designed to improve the biomechanics of the body while Accommodative Orthotics are designed to reduce GRF (Ground Reaction Forces) or accommodate foot deformities. At your foot evaluation appointment, our Pedorthist will be able to determine the best type of Custom Orthotic for you.
9. How do you take care of a pair of custom orthotics?
Depending on the materials used, some orthotics can be recovered, heat “puffed” or heat molded to ensure longevity. See Pedorthist for details.
10. Break in period for a new pair?
It is recommended to break-in your new Custom Orthotics gradually, depending on foot function and anatomy. Usually 1-2 hours a day for 3-4 days and then increase wear by 1 hour a day unless otherwise instructed by your doctor or Pedorthist.
11. Custom orthotic guarantee// return policy?
If you are not completely satisfied with your Dardano’s Custom Orthotics, let us know! We offer any modifications to our Custom Orthotics free of charge for the life of the orthotic. $150 casting fee is included in the price of all Custom Orthotics to cover materials and time, this portion is non-refundable.

It may not look like much, but what a difference 3/8 of an inch can make. The small reduction in heel height took these shoes from hobbling to walkable. We’re all guilty of buying those shoes you know are too tall to be comfortable, but somehow convince ourselves that we can manage. One night of limping and a week of pain later the shoes go into semi-retirement in your closet. Don’t give up on those stilletos just yet, depending on how your shoe is constructed the expert repair technicians at Dardano’s may be able to cut down some of the height on your sky-high pair.
