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.

    I really wanted to like these shoes but I found them narrow through the toe box and they rubbed my achilles because the back of the shoe is too high. I ordered my regular size but concluded they were too small and too narrow after wearing them for a couple of hours. I recommend sizing up, though I'm still concerned about the rub issue and the narrow toe box even with sizing up. Arch support as always with Dansko was great but I'll skip this style in the future.

    Cute shoe, well made, great support, comfortable esp in the heel area, feet didn't hurt after being on feet all day at health care job - works well for work outfits/dresses etc and good supportive heel height. Softer than the Dansko professional clogs that I wear in size 38 - these shoes run 1/2 size larger so I sized DOWN to size 37 and that worked well. Thanks for exchange Zappos! PLEASE MAKE OTHER COLORS DANSKO!! I also recommend the DANSKO MARTA - GREAT SHOE via Zappos (also took a size 37 in that).

    I purchased these for my spouse, his second pair of wide Professionals. Well made, comfortable. Not exactly stylish, unless you either love clogs or just love their comfort.

    I love these shoes especially when I am traveling as they are so comfortable walking thru the airport. I can only give it 4 stars as the velcro strap at times comes undone.....wish Dansko would have just kept it a normal buckle as these shoes were expensive and I did not expect the velcro to be so cheap.

    Loved the comfort of the shoe, and was thrilled to find a Dansko clog that didn't have typical clog styling. Wore the shoes out to work the day after I received them, and after three hours, one of them started squeaking. Zappos graciously returned them even though they had been wore outside. I'm too wary to try again, as after the squeak began I looked at older reviews and saw a few people mention their Tenleys squeak.

    Perfect out of the box! So comfortable and more inside padding than the Dansko Professional models. Worth noting: In the Pro XP here, I where a 39, and there is still the recommended gap at the heel. Whereas, in the Professional model I have to wear a 40, otherwise they are too tight. Great color and great addition to my wardrobe!

    The Honor is so close to being a shoe that worked for me. I've been looking for a lightweight walking shoe with good arch support. I found the arch support only moderate and would need to use my inserts, and if that were all I would have kept the shoe, but the LACING "system"... stupid! They are hard to use and when they are secured the lace loops up and needs to be tucked into the shoe. Too much work! If they had had regular laces I would have kept them.

    This is the BEST shoe I've ever worn. It feels like it was custom made for my foot. Excellent support. Excellent comfort. Purchasing a second pair just because I like them so much.

    Best shoes ever. Have plantar fasciitis and these are the only shoes I can wear. I can wear for 10 hours straight on my feet all day and my feet feel great. Highly recommended!

    I have worn these clogs for years. You do not wear them for style; you wear them because they are the most comfortable show ever made. I had to get a new pair as my feet seem to have gotten bigger. These shoes are suppose to be worn so your heel slides up and down in the back when you walk.
