You love shoes. We love shoes. That’s why you and Dardano’s get along so well! While we have tons of great-looking, well-made and comfortable shoes available to line your closet, we know that every woman (and man) has a few go-to pairs of shoes they reach for again and again. Why? Because that pair of shoes goes with so many things, feels great in use and keeps looking good wearing after wearing. If you haven’t yet chosen your go-to shoes from Dardano’s, we have a few suggestions.

Back-to-Basics for Women:

The weather is beautiful so much of the year that a good sandal can swing from early spring to late fall. An essential, the Munro Stella in Multi Metallic (now $105.00) will take you through the seasons. You’ll be surprised at how many outfits the different and subtle metallic shades of the Munro will go with. Wide-strapped leather uppers fit comfortably across the foot while the elastic panel at the heel strap keeps the shoe on you snuggly but still allows you to easily peel them off at the end of the day. A natural rubber outsole provides shock absorbing qualities to ease strain on feet and joints. And, as a bonus, Munro shoes are made in the USA!



Pluggz Iris in Black (now $98.00) has everything – it’s a basic flat with a slight heel that will look great on the weekends, at work, or out in the evening. A pretty cut-out floral design is feminine while the solid toe cap gives it that professional “spectator” look. Leather uppers, a padded footbed with a built in memory foam arch and heel support, plus a rubber and carbon plug under the weight-bearing portion of the shoe promotes the flow of electrons from the earth to our bodies. And it’s slip resistant.


Keep it casual with Jambu’s
Bath-Barefoot in Black
($109.00). This water shoe is stylish but it has the support and protection of an athletic shoe. Just right for free-time with this fanciful yet practical shoe that has outsoles made from a combination of rice husks and natural rubber, making them eco-friendly. Leather uppers are kept comfortably snug by the bungee lace system. The memory foam footbed forms to the shape of your foot but can be removed for orthotics.




Back-to-Basics for Men:

Slip on the ECCO Helsinki Bike To Slip-on in Cocoa ($139.95) and you’ll be ready-set-go for work and after-work functions. The slightly dressy shine on the full grain leather uppers are formal in style. A padded tongue and heel collar keep the shoe extremely comfortable. Built-in shock points at the heels help ease strain on feet and joints with every step. The footbed is also removable for orthotics.


Say your day starts out in the city but you decide to head to the mountains for a hike. No problem. Put on your Keen Daytona’s in Black Olive ($99.95). This rugged sandal has leather uppers that are water resistant. A bungee lace system maintains the adjustable fit while the metatomical cork footbed molds to your feet, keeping you comfortable no matter what terrain you’re on.



Impromptu beer with friends? Pull on the Oluka Men’s Moloa in Black and Toffee ($120.00).  Carefree and comfortable, the leather uppers are water-resistant and slip on and off easily. You can even fold down the heel to make them a slip-on instead of slip-in. The rubber outsole can handle a variety of weather and the traction on the bottom can take on most any terrain-including the brewpub dance floors.



Basic doesn’t mean boring. It just means shoes you can count on to get you through your life with confidence and comfort. Check out our complete collection of shoes in our store or online. Build your Dardano’s Go-To shoe wardrobe today.
