For high quality, durable work shoes, many people choose Dansko shoes. Clogs, shoes, sandals, and boots are available which feature the finest leathers. Special features are incorporated to ease muscle strain and make long work days tolerable. Those who spend long hours on their feet know the value of a shoe that promotes healthy feet.

The Story of Dansko Shoes

The founders of the Dansko Company were originally horse trainers. They found what they thought would be a great barn shoe in the late 1980s. It was a patented Danish clog which they put through two years of testing. After obtaining exclusive rights, they began distributing the product in 1991. Thirteen years later, Dansko, Inc. has developed a popular line of shoes using the latest design innovations and current technology. The footwear is distributed in over 3,500 retail locations.

The high quality of leather is a unique feature of Dansko shoes. Tanning methods are chosen to provide exceptional strength and brilliant colors. Box leather is used for work shoes since it is smooth and easily maintained. Cabrio leather has a black top coat that provides a glossy shine for casual shoes. Calf leather is often used for dress shoes because it is soft and supple. Oiled leather creates moisture resistance needed for an outdoor shoe. Patent leather has a polycoat finish which provides brilliant shine.

All Dansko shoes feature a contoured footbed, rocker bottom soles, and slightly raised heels to ease muscle strain in the legs and back. The Narrow Pro clog is an option for those with narrow feet. Adjustment options are available in all collections. These include laces, buckles, and elastic goring.
