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.

    I have been wearing these for over 20 years. I love these shoes. The pair I just purchased do not fit properly - they are too big, no support, and rub my feet. Not at all happy with them. I can't return them as I have worn them outside, would otherwise.

    Best Dansko clogs so far! I love the pattern. It is full of colors but not too flashy. This is my first, XP, definitively worth the extra money. It has soft lining improving comfort.

    It's really hard for me to know what to rate. I have two Dansko Professional pair - one in black and one in blueberry. I love the blueberry. The black causes me so much pain, which I've never experienced in a shoe before. It's been over a year and I still can't wear them for more than a few hours a day, so I almost never wear them to work. I actually made the mistake of wearing them to work about 4 days ago and so I was in them for about 10 hours. It's four days later and my feet are still cramped and sore from wearing them. I'm so confused because again, the blueberry is the exact same style and I've worn them for over 16 hours and they're amazing. No issues at all. I don't understand but I'm definitely give up on the black pair.

    Perfect shoe for me. Love Dansko and this is my 3rd pair of their sneakers - love them all but not all the same in consistent fit or style. Comfort is my main objective and with older feet toe clearance is a necessity. Heels run a bit wide and loose, but no concern for me. I'm not a runner or even a walker, but these are perfect for large store waling like Costco etc. These do not look clunky because the sole isn't clunky. Very simple design. At first I thought they were a bit hard in the footbed, but not the case after 5 minutes - have worn them with complete comfort for hours.

    I bought these in a 7 1/2. I have bunions and can usually stretch that area out so shoes are wearable. These shoes were very loose in the heel. So much so that even a heel insert was not enough to close the gap. There is still a 1/4 gap in the back. I didn't realize this until I wore them a few times. They felt good when I first tried them on indoors. I wore them with tights and they felt a little loose so I put in heel pads. Still loose and got worse as the day wore on. With socks they are too tight on my bunions. I can't return them because I have worn them outside a few times and I no longer have the box they came in. I'm not willing to pad the heel even more because it will look ugly with a 1/4 of padding back there. Plus it will just push my foot forward and make the toe area too tight. Geesh, these were expensive too.

    The toe box is very narrow. If you have hammer toes or a bunion, this shoe is not a good choice.

    I love these shoes...have them in four colors and wish I had bought the blue pair. comfortable and can be dressed up and worn with jeans...did I mention that I love them.

    Very cute shoe; I ordered the graphite suede size 39 (8.5-9). I work 12 hours a day; retail with concrete floors and right out of the box they were very comfortable plenty of room length and width. I would not say this is a wide shoe but does give plenty of room for somewhat normal size foot. People with bunions may not work depending on size of bunion, since it is suede it may stretch. Pretty good arch support, room for slip in orthotics. I just wish they came with black laces but beige gives it a different look. I loved them so much I purchased another pair right away since styles get discontinued quickly. I have rheumatoid arthritis and have many problems with my feet swelling and beginning to change with bone structure. This shoe is the best that I have come across in a very long time other than a sneaker.

    I have to agree with most of the reviews of these wonderful pair! I don't usually wear platform shoes like these let alone 3" heels. I figured I would give them a go since they are Dansko. Out of the box, the color was as expected, I love the taupe. I put it on right away and off the bat I told my sister, verbatim, "these feel like slippers". They're not clunky at all despite their look. These will definitely be one of my go-to pairs! Please give them a try if you are thinking of trying them out.

    I love these shoes. The feel of a sneaker but a touch classier looking. I usually wear a 12 narrow so ordered a 42 in this shoe which, initially, I thought was too narrow but after a few days of wearing them around the house they felt great. Not a lot of cushion in the ball of the foot so I wouldn't wear them traipsing around NYC or hiking but they are perfect for casual, every day wear.
