Our Story

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

Our History

Founded in 1990 by Mandy Cabot and Peter Kjellerup, Dansko’s mission is to improve the quality of people’s lives through our products, our passion, and our commitment to a better tomorrow. Former horse trainers, Mandy and Peter were traveling in Europe when they found the perfect “barn shoe” – the traditional clog. They returned with suitcases filled with clogs for family and friends, and soon started selling them from the back of their station wagon. Word of the clogs’ comfort traveled quickly, and Dansko (meaning “Danish shoe”) was born.

A favorite among healthcare workers, educators, and anyone who spends all day on their feet, Dansko’s iconic Professional clog launched a comfort revolution. Unique comfort features include a roomy toe box with plenty of “wiggle room” for your toes, a contoured footbed to support your arch and match the natural shape of your foot, and a rocker bottom that reduces fatigue and assists with forward motion while walking.

Taking inspiration from the classic Professional, Dansko has evolved and adapted that comfort DNA for a wide variety of footwear that provides the ultimate in all-day comfort for virtually any occasion.

 

Our Brand

Dansko shoes are for people who strive to get the most from life. 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. Like you, we go the extra mile, love what we do, and do our best to make the world a better place.

 

Employee Owned

"In any business, employees are the life-blood, they ARE the business. Through our employees, Dansko will learn, evolve and regenerate itself virtually forever, ensuring that we are able to deliver our brand promise today, tomorrow and for generations to come."
— Mandy Cabot

Based in West Grove, Pennsylvania (about 40 miles west of Philadelphia), Dansko employs over 130 dedicated people working in our LEED® Gold Certified corporate headquarters and distribution center.

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.
