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 thought I would try the XP since my feet have decided to get incredibly fussy. I've worn the regular Professionals for more than a dozen years and really like them. I thought the removable footbed was a great idea and was hopeful they would make my feet even happier. I ordered the same size I've always had (albeit, my Professionals date back before the Dansko/Sanita split). The width was perfect and the length was just a tiny bit longer than previous shoes. Not enough to make much difference at all. I just didn't like the feel of the insole. I wore them inside my office for a couple days, but couldn't get used to it. I got the Color Pop Patent and have to say the colors were beautiful. So... back they go. I'm so thankful Zappos is so understanding when it comes to finding that perfect pair of shoes!

    Amazing comfort and support. Work in a hospital emergency room...on my feet all day. This is my second pair. Have had my other pair for 4 years and look like the day I bought them. Wear 7 to 7 1/2 and got a 37...fit perfectly

    Very pretty shoe! But poor fit for me. The arch support began too close to my heel and ended before my arch did. I felt teetery on the platform shoe. The footbed could have been softer and the shoe a little wider overall. Sadly, returning it.

    I've had another pair of Dansko professionals before. I really like this one, but it's taking time to break in the leather, but I'm hopeful they'll soon be a favorite pair of shoes.

    These shoes are so cute. They are classier than most sneakers and they felt comfortable the first time that I put them on. I am not sure if I like the elastic laces as well as the regular type.

    I think I found my shoe. A series of Mary Jane styles, including Dansko, lead me finally back to a real shoe like this for the additional structure and support. Must wear med to thinner socks, not the thick type, or the back of the tongue will press on your instep. My instep is flattish so I was okay. Wish the sole had less of a rounded edge and more of a sharp edge to further prevent ankle rolling (welcome to middle age). And yes, they are good leather so you can polish and maintain them. Worth every penny.

    Insole is not removable. This is important because it will not allow me to remove it and replace it with my orthotics. I ordered this shoe twice because we thought that the one that was not removable was an older model and a newer one would have one that was removable as advertised. Now have to return a second pair.
  • Reggie Posted: May 17, 2016 Reviewer: Sarah Cain from Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I love they way these look but they run huge. I am typically a 6½ and I ordered the 36 but I have to return them because my foot was drowning in that upper part.
  • Pro XP Posted: May 17, 2016 Reviewer: Linn Griffin from California Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    First, these shoes feel wonderful to stand in. I have PTTD (falling arches) and custom orthotics. I also have tailor's bunions, which make my feet wider in the forefoot. I've been looking for a shoe that would look nicer than my (wonderful but not stylish) Brooks Ariels that I wear every day, so I tried these. The regular width feels a tad bit constrictive, so I'm going to order the wide to see if it works. Kudos to Dansko, however for making a clog with removable footbeds, as I will not go without my custom orthotics! Zappos gets an A+, as usual, for fast shipping! I still give this shoe high marks despite it not working for me.

    I love these shoes! I cannot think of another time I tried on shoes that instantly felt comfortable. I have very problematic feet (wide, high arches, bunions). My son, who did a lot of restaurant work, and my podiatrist recommended Danskos and I'm glad I finally made the investment. Plus, I get many compliments on them -- it's been a long time since anyone called my shoes "cute." I was worried they might be too heavy (for my knees, also problematic) but they are just fine. I wear 10-1/5 women's and the 141 Wide fits just fine, with a little slippage in the back as Dansko recommends. I hope you will be as happy with Danskos as I am. Thank you, Zappos.
