About Dansko

Over twenty years ago husband and wife, Mandy Cabot and Peter Kjellerup, were traveling in Europe and discovered the clog in a small shop. They quickly realized that this simple shoe had the potential to change their lives and the lives of anyone who might wear them, so they bought some pairs and brought them back to America. They shared those pairs with their friends who in turn, told their friends and on it went. Through this word of mouth, Dansko® was born. Today, the legendary comfort line is an employee-owned company based in Pennsylvania that offers a wide assortment of shoes from boots to sandals, and a plethora of clogs. Each pair of Dansko shoes delivers all-day comfort and support and benefits the feet of anyone who wears them.

Discover what nurses, doctors, cooks, waitresses, and teachers already know—Dansko Professional clogs are the ideal shoes to wear if you’re on your feet all day. The Professional line is a range of clogs for men and women that provide unparalleled comfort and support. And how do they make these open and closed-back clogs so darn comfortable? Well, it’s in the “Comfort DNA” that includes superior materials of leather or fabric, precise mold and fit, careful measuring and contouring, and a battery of tests to come to the final product.

Work Wonders by Dansko is a line of shoes specifically designed for healthcare professionals who often work long shifts entirely on their feet. They are specially built to work as hard as they do.

    I really like these, but getting the right fit was a challenge. In Dansko shoes, I usually take a 40 (9.5-10), but they were small. Tried a 41, left foot fits great, right foot (my bigger foot) is big. Tried a different pair of 40s. Equally small like the first. So I went back to the 41s and decided to make the right foot fit with an insole. They are a beautiful shoe that I look forward to standing in all day long.

    Flashback to US Navy. These look like the military uniform shoes issued to me in 1992. Couldn't do it. Sending them back.

    At first I was a little thrown off by Dansko's loose heel fit, but then realized this is part of the shoe's design. Felt a little tight over the top of the foot but after a week have broken in and are incredibly comfortable. I stand all day at work and recently strained my back; I can wear these all day and my back pain has been seriously alleviated after wearing the shoes. They are great!

    I work in the health field and im on my feet all day, these shoes are the only thing ive found to get me through the day. They are super comfortable and also extremely cute, I get many compliments daily on them. They also last a very long time and a very good quality.

    This is the perfect active shoe for spring into summer. It will be good for walking and being out and about with the kids. I have a very hard time finding comfortable shoes where my feet are not sore buy the end of the day, and with these, my feet feel great all day. I have somewhat high arches and these give my feet the support they need. I like that they're easy to slip on and they feel supportive. They have a minimalist profile, so they're not clunky on my feet and make my feet look smaller. I got the ivory color, which looks good with everything. I'm hoping they don't look too dirty as time goes on. These were a great choice and I've been happy with them since I put them on the first time.

    I am a dedicated DANSKO XP wearer for years - always my go to shoe. Thought I would mix it up and try the Marcelle for a change. I will be exchanging for the XP. Let's face it, DANSKOs are kind of clunky (they are clogs after all) but the Marcelle flattered even less. And unless you love the top of your feet, need to wear socks or hosiery.

    I usually wear 38 but lately my only ones started to feel tight, I ordered the 38wide but too large.
  • Marcelle Posted: Reviewer: Overall: 3 Stars Comfort: 3 Stars Look: 4 Stars
    I usually wear 38 or 38 wide, this feels too large and clunky when you lift the foot, the strap doesn't really help, I will stick with the classic clog.

    Pretty shoe and idea, but too tight around wide part of foot/toes. I usually wear 38 wide. Wish it came in wide, my bunion can't take the heat. Returning it, sadly.
