Dansko History

Dansko is an American company with a Danish heritage.
It began with a uniquely designed Danish clog, discovered by company founders Mandy Cabot and Peter Kjellerup, in a tiny shop in Denmark in the late 1980s. This husband and wife team, then professional horse trainers, flipped over their discovery of “the perfect barn shoe,” and, quite literally, put them through two years of “acid-testing.” Mandy and Peter found these shoes to be extraordinarily comfortable, virtually indestructible, and attractive enough to wear almost anywhere. They were the only shoes they ever wore. Mandy and Peter secured the exclusive rights to the stapled clog product line from Denmark, and “Dansko, Inc.” was up and running in 1991. Pairs were shared, new designs designed, new collections developed, the good word spread, and within a few short years Dansko footwear was distributed through the best comfort retailers in the United States.

Features and Benefits

Dansko's flagship shoe style, the Stapled Clog, was designed for maximum support and comfort. Benefits include: high quality leather upper designs that follow natural foot contours; non-allergenic, antimicrobial sock lining that absorbs and evaporates perspiration; and a polyurethane outsole that protects feet, legs, and back during long hours of standing and walking.

Additional benefits include:
• Out soles that are resistant to salt and grit; resistance to a wide range of petrochemicals; cold crack resistance; resistance to viral and blood borne pathogens; and blood and urine stain resistance (very good for health care professionals).
• Anatomically contoured arch support, rocker bottom soles, and slightly raised heels ease leg and back muscles during long hours of standing or walking.

• High toe box and generous forefoot width promote maximum comfort and blood circulation.
• Upper designs approximate the natural contours of the foot for comfortable fitting and are made of the highest quality leathers in a wide variety of colors and tannages.

Full-length sock linings are made of non-allergenic, vegetable-tanned leather, proven most effective for the absorption and evaporation of foot perspiration
