Over twenty years ago wife and husband, Mandy Cabot and Peter Kjellerup, discovered our first product in a tiny store in Europe. They realized that a simple pair of clogs would not only change their lives, but that of everyone who might wear them. In their generosity, believing that when you have something great you should share it, they gave pairs to friends. Then their friends told their friends. And just like that, a comfort legend was born! Today, our 100% employee owned company is based in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania and offers a complete line of footwear including heels, boots, sandals, wedges, flats, and of course, clogs. Every pair is infused with legendary Dansko all-day comfort and support.
In 2012, Dansko was thrilled to become a 100% employee owned company through a new ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan)!
"In any business, employees are the life-blood, they ARE the business," said CEO and co-founder Mandy Cabot regarding the decision to move from a partially employee owned company to one that is 100% employee owned. "Through our employees, Dansko will learn, evolve and regenerate itself virtually forever, ensuring that we are able to deliver our brand promise today, tomorrow and for generations to come."
Dansko proudly occupies our LEED® Gold Certified headquarters located in West Grove, Pennsylvania. This award from the US Green Building Council for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is independent, third party proof that Dansko is committed to being environmentally responsible and providing a healthy place to work.
The purpose of the Dansko Foundation is to inspire, support, and faciliate charitable giving and service projects by Dansko employees to qualifying organizations that demonstrate a benefit for humankind.
At Dansko, we roll up our sleeves in support of the community. In 2003, we launched the Dansko Foundation to inspire, support and facilitate charitable giving to not-for-profit community based groups and local chapters of national organizations.
To date, the Foundation has provided over half a million dollars to more than 80 not-for-profit organizations in and around the Delaware Valley. This funding has helped provide meals, shelter, clothing, household goods and animal rescue services as well as educational, therapeutic and recreational programs for children and adults. Additionally, employees are able to double the value of their charitable donations through the Foundation’s matching grants program.
Dansko has long been known as a leader in professional shoes. This means they are all about comfort and support and ensuring that if you have a job where you are on your feet 8, 10 or 12 hours a day, your shoes will keep you going all day long. Dansko clogs, shoes and sandals are based on four main constructions – Stapled Clogs, Sausalito, Capri and Louvre. Each of these constructions have unique attributes and a couple of them are even accepted by the American Podiatric Medical Association. If you are looking for professional footwear, it needs to be comfortable, supportive and non-slip – several Dansko Clogs are also SATRA approved. So with Dansko shoes, you’ll get beautiful leather uppers, roomy and reinforced toes, anti skid treads, rocker bottoms that propel you forward and padded insteps for reinforced but comfortable snug fit. If you go for a heeled construction like the Sausalito, you’ll get stable beveled heels, shock absorbing foam and special DRI-LEX® wrapped footbeds. Are you seeing a theme? Yes, Dansko incorporates comfort and support technology into every one of their shoes and clogs. They want these shoes to be practical, usable and comfortable – even when you invest in a pair of fashion Dansko shoes like a Capri or a Louvre.
We, here at PlanetShoes.com, also love Dansko because of their sustainable and responsible business practices. Their HQ is a Gold certified LEED building, they are crazy recyclers, they have created the Dansko Foundation that has supported over 80 organizations through employee sponsored grants and service projects. They have even planted over 2000 trees for Stroud Water Research.
