Dansko all started back when the husband and wife team, Mandy Cabot and Peter Kjellerup discovered their perfect barn shoe in a tiny shop in Denmark, they decieded they had to share the shoes with their friends. When they had their friends try them on, they told more friends. Just like that, a shoe company was born.

Today, Dansko is much more than just the original clogs. They are now heels, boots, sandals, wedges and flats. Every style made by Dansko is made with special attention to materials and construction so they may promote good foot, leg and back health.

Dansko has long been a great resource for us in our stores because of the comfort and support they offer to feet while still paying attention to style and fashion.  When a customer comes in looking for a shoe they can where for all day comfort we often end up suggesting a new pair of Dansko clogs, shoes, or boots.  In hospitals and medical offices the “Professional Clog” has long been a shoe of choice because the long hours working on the hard floors of hospital require a shoe that can support the foot in a manner that might prevent excessive stresses to the muscles and tendons in the feet causing foot pain.  Chefs and restaurant workers have also long known the clogs to be excellent shoes to wear for their demanding needs.

If you haven’t ever treated your feet to the comfort a Dansko shoe can offer, you really deserve to see what it’s all about.  Come on into any of our three Vancouver, WA stores and see for yourself why these might just be one of the best all round shoes you’ve ever put on your feet.
