Dansko literally translates to “Danish shoe.” The company began when, 20 years ago, two young lovers were constantly bringing back pairs of Danish clogs from Denmark for their friends and family. They decided to put up their own company to produce the clogs, instead of cramming the shoes in their suitcases. Many of the shoe models carry the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) Seal of Acceptance. This means that the shoes are designed to promote good foot health.
Their shoes feature contoured footbeds, a roomy toe box, rocker bottom soles, and a slightly raised heel. The shoes are designed to still feel comfortable after 12 hours of use. Dansko shoes are available at TheShoeMart.com, an online retailer of the biggest shoe brands. They pride themselves on having the largest selection of the most sought-after brands. The site offers free shipping for all orders to anywhere in the continental USA.
