Brand Highlight: Dansko

Brand Highlight: Dansko
Justin Pantaleon

Every once in a while, we like to highlight a brand we think is superb. Whether it’s the quality of the footwear or their mission – or, in today’s case, both – we want to shine a light on the brands we love. Dansko is a women-founded, women-led, and 100% employee-owned company, and they’re exactly the kind of brand that we are beyond proud to support. 


The Dansko clog is an icon for people who have to be on their feet all day, which makes perfect sense, considering that’s why they were invented. Mandy Cabot, the founder of Dansko, was on a trip to Denmark and when she discovered the traditional Danish Clog. After hours of working on her feet in the barn, she was surprised and pleased to discover how comfortable they were throughout the day, and she realized there would be a great market for something similar in the U.S. Today, Dansko shoes are a symbol for the kind of women wearing them – the women who can do it all and dream big. 



These days, the Dansko clog is legendary. From the workhorse XP 2.0 that’s a favorite of healthcare professionals and chefs to the casual EVA Kane for everyday wear, Dansko is the ideal brand for anyone who’s on their feet for hours at a time. Dansko clogs include a rocker bottom, a firm and contoured arch support, and a padded instep, so your feet will thank you even after wearing them all day. Don’t just take our word for it – their designs meet the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) approval standards and carry the APMA Seal of Acceptance so you know they’re good for your feet.


Really, though, the best thing about Dansko is that you don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort. Every season, Dansko introduces new colors and styles that look just as good as they feel. Dansko now has tons of different styles, from boots to sandals and heels, so you can be comfortable before, during, and after work. No more suffering through blisters and sore feet in an attempt to look more stylish – Dansko handles the comfort and the cute. 


Our favorites right now are the Tandi, which is a minimalist heel with a feminine side cut out, perfect for sunny days ahead. You can dress it up or down for any occasion.



We’re also loving the Tinley, which is a bit more casual and perfect for days spent wandering around farmers markets, chasing after kids, or exploring the city. The strappy leather upper and chunky sole provide stability while staying on trend.



The Jennifer is a feminine, fisherman sandal ideal for hitting the beach, the park, or a few breweries. 



Whatever your plans look like, from work to play and from home to a night out, Dansko has an option for you. Start shopping and discover the perfect intersection of style and comfort with Dansko.
