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.

    I have a Mortons Neuroma and have trouble wearing flats. Danskos have always been one of my favorite shoes. I ordered about 6 pairs of black flats and these were the most comfortable of the bunch. Love that I can do that with Zappos! They are very durable too.

    Awful. I have been wearing Dansko shoes for more than fifteen years. These shoes are now made in China instead of Italy. Dansko disappoints us now that they have chosen to outsource. As a registered nurse, the word is being put out to others not to purchase

    Love my Danskos! I bought the black and white Honor and love this shoe! You can dress it up, dress it down, it works with everything. It's a very supportive shoe, excellent arch support and helps keep my ongoing foot problems in check. Great shoe and a happy customer!

    I had my last pair of Danskos for 8 years and this is the first time I have bought a new pair since then and these fit the same (size, width, comfort, etc) and are even better!

    These are nice shoes. They fit well but the top band rubs. I have a high arch so I need them stretched. Otherwise they are comfortable.

    Super comfy but not the most stylish. I am looking for a pair of stylish shoes to wear with ankle pants to my retail job where I am ok my feet all day. I was hoping I could pull these off but they are better with boot cut or flare pants. Unfortunately I had to return them and I am still on the hunt for comfy stylish shoes.....

    I totally fell in love with this Dansko style! But, it definitely doesn't have the serious insole/arch support that the Dansko Pro has. Plus, my usual size 7 was short in this, but not a total 1/2 size. My heel was right at the end. The toe area is a bit less roomy than I need, side-to-side and above the little toe to the leather. I do order wide shoes, but the Dansko Pro fits fine, though not in "wide."

    Full disclosure - my daughter is actually the one wearing these. She followed directions and wore them at home (with thick socks) for the few days she had them before wearing to do surgery for 4 - 5 hours. The first day she need to change out her shoes during the day, but by the second she was able to wear all day without discomfort.

    Cute server shoes, unfortunately I have to return. My arches are high and the top of the shoe was digging into the top of my foot after a while. It was pretty uncomfortable and won't work out when I'm on my feet for hours. If you don't have high arches this may not be an issue.

    This shoe was comfortable out of the box but they are somewhat hard. The major complaint is they squeak like crazy. I've put lots of baby powder in them and it helps for a while but comes back. I called Dansko and they were very unhelpful.
