About Dansko

Over twenty years ago husband and wife, Mandy Cabot and Peter Kjellerup, were traveling in Europe and discovered the clog in a small shop. They quickly realized that this simple shoe had the potential to change their lives and the lives of anyone who might wear them, so they bought some pairs and brought them back to America. They shared those pairs with their friends who in turn, told their friends and on it went. Through this word of mouth, Dansko® was born. Today, the legendary comfort line is an employee-owned company based in Pennsylvania that offers a wide assortment of shoes from boots to sandals, and a plethora of clogs. Each pair of Dansko shoes delivers all-day comfort and support and benefits the feet of anyone who wears them.

Discover what nurses, doctors, cooks, waitresses, and teachers already know—Dansko Professional clogs are the ideal shoes to wear if you’re on your feet all day. The Professional line is a range of clogs for men and women that provide unparalleled comfort and support. And how do they make these open and closed-back clogs so darn comfortable? Well, it’s in the “Comfort DNA” that includes superior materials of leather or fabric, precise mold and fit, careful measuring and contouring, and a battery of tests to come to the final product.

Work Wonders by Dansko is a line of shoes specifically designed for healthcare professionals who often work long shifts entirely on their feet. They are specially built to work as hard as they do. This shoe collection is lightweight, slip resistant, supportive, easy to clean with wipeable uppers, non-marking, and of course, comfortable.  Doctors, nurses, aides, and administrative workers in the healthcare industry need a shoe that will keep up with their hectic, sometimes 12-hour shifts and Work Wonders by Dansko are just the shoes to do it.

    Very cute but too short in the toes for me.

    I have the Walnut color. This is a nice looking everyday shoe. I think it will work well with my orthotics for Plantar Fascitis. It is very sturdy with a thick sole in the Dansko tradition. Can't wait till the weather is a little drier so that I can enjoy them. P.S.- They are already Scotchguarded.

    True to Dansko reputation, these are supportive, incredibly comfortable, sturdy shoes. I was looking for something I could walk a distance in, slide on and off easily at yoga, etc., and I wanted them to be lightweight while still meeting all of those other criteria. These shoes check every box. They rubbed a bit on the sides of my heels my first time out (but that is likely my own fault for going too far, too soon in brand new shoes). Subsequent strolls have been wonderful. Dansko continues to be my go-to for my every shoe need!

    Love these shoes so much I bought them in two colors. Arch support could be better (I have high arches) but they are supper comfy and very cute.

    I have other pairs of Dansko Sonja. Love the shoe just wasn't wild about the coloring. The toe is a solid brown and the rest of the shoe is not solid. Just looked funny.

    I have difficult feet-hammer toes, tailor's bunion,big toe joint bunion, skinny and partially numbfrom neuropathy. these shoes would be ideal except the ankle area and tongue hit the inner ankle bone (skinny problem) painfully. If i can get the heel area inside the shoe raised 1/2" and still stay on, then these shoes are winners. the toe box part feels great! Maybe thin socks would help too.

    My husband ordered these for me years ago. I am a nurse and spend 12 hours a time on my feet and these have been a life saver. I will never order or wear anything else.
