Dansko History

Since 1990, Dansko has been a leader in providing innovative comfort footwear while standing at the forefront of sustainable and ethical business practices. Dansko is owned and operated by their founders, husband and wife team Mandy Cabot and Peter Kjellerup. They distribute shoes and boots to over 2,500 premium US and international retail locations. Dansko literally translated from Danish means “Danish Shoe”.
Mandy and Peter discovered Dansko's first product while on a horse-buying trip to Peter’s native Denmark. After realizing that this basic shoe would be perfect for wearing around the barn, they brought a few pairs back to the US. Right away, friends wanted to try the clogs and with each trip to Denmark, Mandy and Peter were bringing back more and more pairs. Soon, they found themselves selling clogs out of their station wagon as they drove from horse show to horse show. By 1993, they sold their horse farm to devote themselves full-time to building Dansko. Today, Dansko's offerings include sandals, boots, heels, flats and many types of clogs. Every pair is infused with the same all-day comfort found in our original stapled clog.
