  • Mandy & Peter Celebrate Their Dansko Roots!

    By Brendan Carr on Thursday, October 01, 2015

    Celebrate_Roots_01.jpg -

    We’re celebrating milestones throughout October at The Dansko Blog! And since this month marks our 25th Anniversary, the timing is absolutely perfect. To commemorate this awesome achievement, we’re paying tribute to our roots in a unique way. Before we had a headquarters, a website, a warehouse and all of our team members, your favorite shoes were only available to the equestrian community. Join us now, as Mandy and Peter take us back to where it all began… 

    • Mandy & Peter Celebrate Their Dansko Roots! -

      ​Back in the day, Mandy and Peter had a dream to share their favorite shoes with the world. But they didn’t have a store… or an established fan base. What they did have was passion for their product, a station wagon and a connected community. While hitting the road in support of their budding business, they found their first fans at local horse shows. As word of mouth spread, the demand for Dansko shoes increased outside of the equestrian circle.

    • Mandy & Peter Celebrate Their Dansko Roots! -

      ​Twenty-five years later, Dansko has fans everywhere. Although Dansko’s success exceeded their wildest dreams, Mandy and Peter keep those early days close to their hearts.

    • Mandy & Peter Celebrate Their Dansko Roots! -

      ​To celebrate our roots, our cofounders surprised Dansko fans by co-staffing the counter of Little Foxes Tack & Togs during a local show that helped them launch Dansko twenty-five years ago. Along with shop owner Sue Weiland, Mandy and Peter greeted attendees, assisted customers, and sold shoes to Dansko devotees and new fans, too. It was a wonderful day for everyone who attended!

    • Mandy & Peter Celebrate Their Dansko Roots! -

      ​Even after twenty-five years, Mandy and Peter still have the passion and enthusiasm to roll up their sleeves and tell customers about their love for these amazing shoes and to thank them for helping make the Dansko dream come true.

  • Adventures in Shipping!

    By Brendan Carr on Friday, September 25, 2015

    adventures on shipping-01.jpg -

    Whether you realize it or not, every one of us embarks on a series of adventures every day. We may not be scaling mountains or conquering the open sea, but our daily doings are filled with interesting activities that are worth celebrating. Our month-long celebration of everyday adventures continues with this chronicle of an exciting journey that begins in our Distribution Center.

    • Adventures in Shipping!  -

      ​If someone says shipping shoes isn’t an adventurous endeavor, they’re doing it wrong. Shipping shoes is more than an ordinary activity; the Dansko shipping process is the start of an amazing journey that takes each pair of shoes from our Five Star Distribution Center to your favorite retailers. To get our shoes ready for their big trek, Dansko relies on the talents of our highly trained team of shipping superheroes and their trusty robotic sidekicks.

    • Adventures in Shipping!  -

      ​Through some super cool technology, combined with our skilled team, Dansko has developed a more efficient and accurate shipping process that also improves the quality of workplace life for each team member. Our highly sophisticated robotic sidekicks support our warehouse employees by taking on some of the heavy lifting. Instead of having team members constantly walk up and down the aisles and lift numerous boxes, our bots use sophisticated order-processing software and built-in cameras to help locate the ordered shoes and bring them directly to our manned workstations. Then our shipping specialists sort and pack each shoe box in preparation of its big journey to the world outside our walls.

    • Adventures in Shipping!  -

      ​The next time you visit your favorite retailer to pick up a new pair of Dansko shoes, take a minute to think about the adventures of the shoe and the shipping superheroes and robotic sidekicks who had a hand in passing it from us to you.

    • Adventures in Shipping!  -

      ​Join us next month at The Dansko Blog as we celebrate a milestone event in Dansko history!

  • Adventures in Volunteering

    By Brendan Carr on Tuesday, September 15, 2015

    091615_1.jpg -

    Whether you realize it or not, every one of us embarks on a series of adventures every day. We may not be scaling mountains or conquering the open sea, but our daily doings are filled with challenges and interesting activities that are worth celebrating. At Dansko, our everyday adventures often take us beyond our walls and into the community. Come along with us on today’s adventure – corn harvesting!

    • Adventures in Volunteering -

      At Dansko, we believe in that old saying: We work hard… but we play hard, too. Balancing work and play helps give everyone at Dansko a healthy outlook and a positive attitude. And as much as that saying is true, it is missing another important fact about Dansko: we volunteer.

    • Adventures in Volunteering -

      ​Each year, Dansko gives all employees 20 hours of paid time off to volunteer in the community. Plus, Dansko donates the hourly equivalent of each participating employee’s salary to the organization for which they volunteer. Although many of our volunteering opportunities involve a great deal of hard work, they’re always interesting, educational, rewarding, and enjoyable experiences. These volunteering adventures give our staff a chance to enjoy time away from the office, bond with their coworkers, and experience the satisfaction of giving back to the community.

      One of our most popular volunteer events occurs every fall – corn harvesting. Spearheaded by a group of staffers nicknamed The Corn Crew, this annual event finds these volunteers picking ears of delicious corn in the nearby fields. After the harvesting is over, all of the corn that our crew picked is sorted, boxed and delivered to food relief agencies across our area.  

      It may be time for us to amend the saying to: We work hard… we play hard… and we give back, too!

  • Dansko – A Place Where Everyday Adventures Begin!

    Whether we realize it or not, every one of us embarks on a series of adventures every day. We may not be scaling mountains or conquering the open sea, but our daily doings are often filled with challenges and interesting activities that are worth celebrating. Our month-long celebration of everyday adventures begins at a place where exciting things are always happening – Dansko home base!

    • Dansko – A Place Where Everyday Adventures Begin! -

      ​It would be difficult to find the inspiration to design and create new shoes if our everyday environment wasn’t stimulating to our senses. That’s why the Dansko corporate headquarters was intended to be an inspirational oasis that motivates action, spurs creativity and fuels our workday adventures.

    • Dansko – A Place Where Everyday Adventures Begin! -

      ​As soon as you set foot here, your eyes are treated to a bounty of beautiful sculptures, lush greenery, and a peaceful pond. That serene scene creates a positive vibe that continues throughout our entire home. Whether we’re holding a meeting amid the scenic splendor of our vegetated roof or taking five on the balcony that overlooks our living wall, there are plenty of creative catalysts in our surroundings. In that sense, our home does more than house our staff; it inspires us to create the shoes for your everyday adventures.

    • Dansko – A Place Where Everyday Adventures Begin! -

      ​Come with us now, as we take a most unusual tour of Dansko with our co-founder Peter!

  • Saying Goodbye to Summer with a Night of Family Fun!

    By Brendan Carr on Tuesday, August 25, 2015

    Summer is the perfect season to spend time with your family. That’s why we’ve celebrated our family all month long at The Dansko Blog! In our final post for August, we spotlight one of our favorite summer pastimes – Family Fun Night!

    • Saying Goodbye to Summer with a Night of Family Fun! -

      ​Much like you, everyone at Dansko works hard. But we also understand how important it is to take a break during the workweek and enjoy some much-needed family time. 

      We recently gathered together for a night of family fun before the summer ends – and school begins. There was tasty food, cool games and plenty of amusing activities for everyone to enjoy.

    • Saying Goodbye to Summer with a Night of Family Fun! -

      It’s hard to say goodbye to summer but it’s easier with family by your side.

    • Saying Goodbye to Summer with a Night of Family Fun! -

      Now, let’s get ready for the everyday adventures that await us in the fall!
