You can't resist uber-comfortable Dansko clogs, shoes, and sandals once you slip on a pair. A legend from day one, Dansko offers so much stylish comfort that word of mouth alone made it a major label.
A couple decades ago or so, one married American couple sparked a trend with their favorite European souvenir and turned it into an award-winning business. Mandy Cabot and Peter Kjellerup wouldn't have founded Dansko in 1990 if not for a little fun shopping on that fateful trip. While visiting his original hometown in Denmark, they fell in love with a boutique's closed-back clogs. Mary and Peter shared their discovery with friends and neighbors back in Pennsylvania, who also fell under the spell of those super-cute cozy clogs and asked the couple to bring them home some next time. But the obsession took off like the stallions at their riding facility once Mary and Peter started selling pairs at horse shows. To meet demand, they began importing, and presto — the birth of Dansko, which literally means Danish shoes in Peter's native tongue.
These days, Dansko makes their own shoes in a LEED® Gold certified facility, focusing on all things green just as much as comfort. Their sustainability efforts also include human resources, as Dankso is 100% employee-owned. So in a very short time, the conscientious company has come quite a long way, now creating a variety of comfortable clogs, boots, and sandals for women and men. From their modern clogs to Mary Janes and wedges, you'll love the way you look and feel. Dansko is also a popular work choice for healthcare professionals who need all-day or all-night comfort and superior slip resistance. In fact, Dankso shoes are approved by the American Podiatric Medical Associations (APMA). Enjoy a softer, wider heel and gripping treading for more stability, plus breathable leather linings and athletic-inspired shock absorption. Ready for a sweet ride with lightweight, flexible, and durable design? Time to become a Dankso fan.
