Husband and wife team Mandy Cabot and Peter Kjellerup founded Dansko—which literally translated means "Danish shoe"—in 1990, when Mandy found she loved the comfort of a pair of clogs she bought in Denmark but was unable to replace at home in the United States. Today, the company is an employee-owned business run out of a Pennsylvania building constructed using numerous eco-technologies, materials gathered from sustainable sources and local suppliers. The headquarters even utilizes solar energy. Additionally, Dansko has a history of community involvement, volunteerism and ethical business practices.
Dansko footwear can be separated into two categories: Dansko clog styles and non-clogs. Also known as Dansko nursing shoes, the iconic Dansko Professional is a favorite among chefs, teachers, medical professionals and those who spend a great deal of time on their feet. In addition to waterproof and water-resistant leathers, popular finishes include patent leather, animal prints and tapestry fabric.
Dansko clogs are made with a variety of comfort technologies, including a rocker bottom to enhance your natural walking movement, gently propelling you forward.
Beyond Dansko Professional clogs and other clog styles, explore Dansko boots, Dansko sandals, Dansko mary janes and more styles for women, men, girls and boys, including Dansko socks. Dansko also offers women's high-heeled styles for a dressy look that doesn't sacrifice the comfort and stability Dansko footwear is known for.
Each Dansko collection offers a unique fit, and many collections carry the Seal of Acceptance by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA), which certifies footwear promoting quality foot health.
