"If you’ve got something great to share, you share it."

- Founder, Mandy Cabot

That’s Dansko’s original business plan.
And sharing comfort with the world has been the gift that keeps on giving…

Our Story

On one of many horse-buying trips to Denmark, our co-founders Mandy and Peter made a serendipitous discovery of the world’s “most comfortable shoe”.  This humble clog launched a comfort revolution—inspiring new collections from sandals to boots, and athleisure to fashion—Dansko has it all.

Our Mission

Dansko’s mission is to improve the quality of people’s lives through our products, our passion, and our commitment to a better tomorrow. Through our commitment to all-day comfort and quality, our passion for sustainable business practices, and our devotion to community service – we’re determined to leave the world a better place.

Our Products

We make shoes that are simply good for your feet—all day, every day—in a range of styles that are just right for you. The majority of Dansko shoes meet the American Podiatric Medical Association approval standards (APMA) and carry the APMA seal of Acceptance. The APMA is the leading resource for foot health information.

Commitment to Comfort

Our shoes are made with comfort and wellness in mind. We incorporate elements like the Dansko Natural Arch® Technology for added arch support and heel stability.

Employee Owned

In 2012, Dansko proudly became 100% employee-owned through an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). The transition to employee ownership marked the continuation of Dansko's commitment to its employees, its community, and its values.
