Comfortable. Durable. Stylish.

Dansko: Supportive Professional and Nursing Shoes

Born from a fusion between tradition and modern innovation, Dansko shoes are perfect for life on the move. In the late 1980s, horse trainer Amanda Cabot took a trip to Denmark and discovered an amazing new trend in shoes. The people there had begun wearing a reimagined version of the clog, which substituted the normal stiff wood for supple polyurethane. Cabot realized that the shoes had the great arch support, high toe box, and natural fit of traditional clogs, but with far more stability, shock-absorbency, and rebound thanks to the modern materials.


After bringing home several pairs, she realized that the shoes were perfect for anyone working on their feet, and over the years the original shoe design would continue to be improved. Today, Dansko clogs and shoes are renowned for their comfort and lasting benefits. The anatomically contoured arch support and rocker-bottom sole design increases shock absorbency, provides extra stability, and eases the strain on leg and back muscles. This is why they are beloved by professionals who work on their feet: Dansko clogs are often described as amazing teachers shoes, chefs shoes, nurses shoes, waitress shoes, workers shoes, and more. Dankso has also since expanded its styles beyond clogs, creating many elegant and quality designs which all share a deep commitment to comfort and support. Elegant sandals like the Women's Season, and stylish boots like the Women's Francesca have become very popular. The wide variety of shoes and styles make Dansko a great choice for nearly any profession or walk of life.


We at OutlandUSA.com love to recommend Dansko not only to people working on their feet, but to anyone who wants a comfortable, durable, and stylish shoe. We currently only carry Dansko in women's, but we have a great selection and the shoes often go on sale when new styles are released.

 Questions & Tips

Q: Where are Dansko clogs made?

Dansko clogs are made in Europe and Asia. Look on the inside of the shoe to see the country where it was manufactured. To ensure that Dansko provides a superior product, they select and work closely with only the very best manufacturers. They select our sourcing partners based on their proximity and access to raw materials, as well as for their expertise in handling these materials.

Q: Should I be concerned if my shoe discolors my sock or foot?

Dansko takes great care in selecting their leathers and tanning methods to ensure supple strength and brilliant color. Occasionally, leather uppers or linings may react with your body chemistry, transferring color onto your feet or hosiery. This is not a defect. You may also find naturally occurring marks or blemishes in the leather, revealing its inner character or originality.

Q: What is the APMA Seal of Acceptance?

Dankso is proud to carry the American Podiatric Medical Associations (APMA) Seal of Acceptance. The APMA awards the Seal after rigorously evaluating a product to determine if it promotes quality foot health.
