Dansko Emmie Orthotic-Friendly Shoe
Whenever we read a review that mentions a shoe’s ability to accommodate an orthotic, we take note (especially when it’s not a gym shoe). The Dansko Emmie is new for fall 2020 but looks similar to the discontinued Dansko Lulu from a few years back. A recent Zappos customer says this about the Emmie:
These are great for women who have orthotics that need to be inserted into their shoes–works great with my orthotics!
Three factors make the Emmie orthotic-friendly: a removable footbed, an ankle strap to keep heel from slipping out of shoe, and a roomy forefoot fit.
We also relate to Zappos customer Judy who was ecstatic to find a stylish shoe that accommodates a toe separator.
I love these shoes! This particular style I found so comfortable that I regretted taking them off at night! I need to wear a toe separator– I have bunions. It is not easy to get a pair of shoes that are pretty, comfortable to walk in, and can accommodate my feet.
Even if you don’t wear orthotics, the Emmie’s footbed provides excellent arch support.
We recommend the Dansko Emmie for medium to slightly wide feet. If you have a narrow foot, consider the Shaylee wedge with a slimmer profile. Find the Emmie in euro sizes 36-42 (5.5-11.5) for $130 from Dansko.com, Zappos, Amazon and The Walking Company.
Stance no-show liner socks work perfectly with the Dansko Emmie–they stay put!
