In its 26 year history, Dansko has received a fair share of praise for its high-quality footwear, ethical business practices, altruism, volunteerism, and dedication to environmentally friendly initiatives. Every award that Dansko receives means a great deal to every member of the team. Each recognition that Dansko earns is considered a representation of its commitment to changing lives through high-quality products. Of all the honors that Dansko has earned, its two most recent awards feel particularly special.
This month, Footwear Plus presented Dansko with two momentous honors. The first distinction, the Excellence in Design award, was presented to Dansko’s iconic stapled clog in recognition of its many style and comfort benefits. Considering the popularity of the clog and the number of clog brands currently available to consumers, this award distinguishes Dansko as the proven leader in the clog category.
In addition to bestowing top honors to the stapled clog, Footwear Plus also presented Dansko co-founder and CEO Mandy Cabot with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award. Acknowledging Mandy’s role as a successful business leader, the Lifetime Achievement Award also pays tribute to her influence on the footwear industry and her dedication to making the world a better place. In the words of Greg Dutter, Editorial Director of Footwear Plus magazine, Mandy “has become a role model for other companies in and outside the footwear industry.”
Please join Dansko in celebrating these two major honors and in congratulating Mandy on her prestigious award!
