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.

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.

    I bought these to wear after toe surgery, for which they worked great. I love the style--more comfortable, less clunky than Dansko clogs. My one complaint is that they are sweat-boxes and do not breathe at all! I also experienced my usual Dansko-dilemma in choosing size. The 41s were a bit too close a fit, and the 42s are really too big w/o thick socks. But thank you, Zappo's for free exchanges!

    I have been wearing an aggressive rocker shoe for several years - heel spur, metatarsalgia, bunion, plantar fasciitis. You name it, I have it. To compound matters, I am a short woman with large feet. I wear a 44 and the few women's shoes in that size are too narrow. On a whim, I tried on a pair of Dansko clogs and was amazed at how comfortable they felt. I did have to add a metatarsal pad which meant I had to stretch them overnight for a few nights, but I would never have believed a shoe like this could be comfortable. I now have 2 pair (black and brown) and rotate them with my rocker sole athletic shoes. If the men's clogs came in other colors, I would buy them all.

    Yay Dansko! I've worn your professional clogs for decades. It's hard to beat the comfort for all day standing/walking and the protection from the puddles I encounter in the winter. The Tenley has the feel of your professional clog, with a dressier look! Just the change I needed! Thank you once again Zappos, for bringing the shoe store to my home! I tell everyone talking about shoe shopping, about YOU!

    My Favorite Shoes! They are stylish and look great if I'm in pants or a dresss. The best part is they are comfortable. I have wide feet and high arches and I can wear these shoes all day. I'll definately buy again.

    Loved the clog, and was very excited to get them! Now I wear a size 10 shoe, and I ordered a 41 wide. There was no room on my heels so I exchanged and got a 42. Still the same issue! I'm disappointed, because I really liked the pattern!

    I am so disappointed! I bought my first pair of Dansko's after hearing rave reviews about them from co-workers. The first pair I ordered were too tight, so I ordered a size up, and they were STILL too tight!!!! I think I may go to a store to get fitted so I can find my exact size. Lovely clog!!!

    I chose these shoes after looking for footwear for people on their feet all day. Reviews I read seemed to suggest that these shoes were amazing and would end all foot pain. This may be true for others. I found these shoes as painful to wear all day as 4 inch pointy heels. They were hard and ungiving. I felt like I was wearing cement blocks on my feet. Additionally, the fit was very strange. They are on the narrow side, but did not keep my heels from sliding around or even out. On at least one occasion, the shoe flipped sideways under my foot as I was taking a step, so I'm also docking them for being very unstable. All in all, I was hoping for a comfortable, supportive shoe that would allow me to stay on my feet while reducing foot pain, I got a shoe that is hard as a rock, extremely uncomfortable to wear, and felt dangerous.

    Nice basic shoe for jeans, dresses. It is a gray-nude color, perfect for my pale skin with bluish undertones. Comfortable, and the strap is a good length. My feet felt fine standing at a two hour party, and while that may not seem like high praise, my feet typically hurt in non-athletic shoes after 30 minutes. I love them!
  • Professional Posted: Jul 20, 2016 Reviewer: from Lincoln, NE Overall: 3 Stars Comfort: 3 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I think these would have been good shoes for my application, but the recommended size was too short for my foot and I couldn't go to a larger size because my heel already slipped in the narrow width.

    Call me crazy, but if I'm going to spend $130 on a pair of shoes whose claim to fame is comfort, I expect the foot bed to be leather, not whatever this sweat-inducing substance is. It's also nice when shoes aren't sewn together with fishing wire, as these seem to be. Dansko has gone to the dogs, unfortunately.
