Springing Forward with Dansko Shoes

Dansko Spring Shoes

Since 1990, Dansko has been providing working professionals with its legendary comfortable clogs. From nurses to waitresses, the brand has gained a cult following in the footwear industry. Their shoes have ensured that the working class could stay on their feet during entire shifts without pain and fatigue.­ Over time, Dansko began expanding into a wide range of styles. The company even provides a variety of men’s shoes. With spring in full swing, most people are itching to freshen up their wardrobe with the latest trends catering to warmer weather. Not one to be left behind, Dansko has released its own collection of spring shoes to keep your feet stylin’ and profilin’ this season. Here’s a few of our brand new favorites in shoes for women:


Dansko Women's Selina


For a sassy, strappy wedge sandal for strolls on the boardwalk, look no further than the Selina. An adjustable ankle strap ensures a secure fit. The shock absorbing cork midsole and molded memory foam footbed ensured comfort, even with a 2 ¼” heel. These pair best with a billowy maxi dress and wide brim sun hat.

Dansko Women's Anna


Block heels are in! This stylish sandal stands out from the crowd with decorative buckles, and stain protected leather uppers. The footbed features dual density EVA memory foam cushioning for all-day comfort. Imagine sashaying on the dance floor in these at your friend’s wedding reception, and being the envy of the entire guest list!


Dansko Women's Lou Burnished Calf


What better way to make an entrance than in a flashy wedge? Burnished leather uppers contrast well with brushed metal buckles. The microfiber sockling features Aegis Microbe Shield odor control technology, and the memory foam footbed and shock-absorbing PU wedge reduce fatigue.

Dansko Women's Vera


A stylish choice for weekend brunch with the girls or while window shopping in a quaint, seaside town. The Vera offers a lower 1 ½” heel for additional comfort, along with a foam footbed and underfoot suede sockling. These are a great alternative to those who want the style of a wedge, but have difficulty walking in higher heels.


 Dansko Women's Xp 2.0XP 2.0 CLOG

The ever-popular Pro XP has gotten an upgrade! This version still features the slim silhouette, rocker bottom, and slip-resistant sole as the previous model. Improvements include a lighter EVA midsole to further reduce the weight of the clog. The removable memory foam footbed has been improved with Dansko Natural Arch technology, a TPU arch stabilizer for increased arch support. It’s a perfect choice for those colder, rainy spring days that require you to keep your toes warm and dry.

These are but a few of the varieties that are hot for Spring 2019. While coral and mango are the “in” colors this season, classic black is almost always available in most of these women’s styles as well. With so many Dansko’s to choose from, there’s a spring shoe for everyone!

Don a Pair of Dansko Shoes This Year: The Best in Supportive Footwear


These days, people simply expect more from their footwear. It’s not enough for it to look good and be in step with the latest trends. It has to be comfortable, as well—something that supports your lifestyle no matter what might be on your agenda for the day. Dansko is one iconic name that’s truly dedicated to making exactly that type of footwear accessible to everyone.

Since Dansko was first founded in 1990, the brand itself has become synonymous with time-honored concepts like comfort, reliability, integrity, sustainability and the kind of support that meets even exacting medical standards. That said, if you only add one new pair of shoes to your closet this year, make it a pair of Dansko for the following reasons.

1. Dansko shoes make amazing options for people who work on their feet all day.

If you work on your feet, you no doubt already know that not all comfort footwear options are created equally. This is especially the case for people who work in food service, medicine, or any other profession that frequently asks people to put in long hours or double shifts. Dansko clogs are incredibly popular among doctors, nurses, and chefs because they’re shock-absorbent, supportive, and comfortable enough to get them through even grueling work days in one piece.

The sheer range and versatility of the Dansko line mean there are suitable dress options available for professionals like retail salespeople, hospitality workers, and teachers as well. Styles like the Dansko Missy don’t just feel fantastic, thanks to Dansko’s superior comfort technology. They’re stylish enough to complement any professional look.


2. Quality and high standards are huge priorities at Dansko.

When you’re counting on your shoes to take good care of your feet, it goes without saying that quality matters. Dansko shoes aren’t just great footwear. They’re made from only the best materials and reflective of the latest innovations in support technology.

  • Dansko uppers are made from real premium-grade leather instead of the cheap synthetics used in many other shoes. Not only does real leather breathe better than the alternatives, but it naturally molds itself to the shape of your foot for a perfect fit.
  • Industrial-level thermoplastic reinforcement is used to produce extra-strong toe boxes that not enhance durability, but help protect your toes as well.
  • Dansko heel counters are specially designed to make slipping into your shoes easy. They also allow for freer heel movement while walking, as well as greater stability overall.
  • Much thought goes into the footbeds of a pair of Dansko shoes. Not only do they offer superior arch support, but leather insoles improve breathability and cushioning as well.

3. Dansko shoes meet even strict medical standards.

Dansko shoes are more than just comfortable footwear that supports your busy lifestyle. They’re endorsed by numerous doctors and medical professionals. Dansko’s signature outsoles have earned the official seal of approval from the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). Their innovative designs have also been proven to reduce the occurrence of common annoyances like blisters and calluses.

That said, Dansko is an ideal brand to try if you need more supportive footwear. Ask your doctor for more information on how the right Dansko shoes might be able to help you take better care of your feet, knees, back, and joints.


4. Dansko shoes fit right into even the most style-conscious wardrobes.

The footwear experts at Dansko definitely understand that it’s not enough for a shoe to be comfortable. It’s also got to fit seamlessly into your life, so it’s got to be stylish as well. One look through the ever-expansive Dansko catalog is all it takes to see that this iconic brand definitely knows a thing or two about trends.

To begin with, Dansko takes the classic clog to an entirely new level with a wealth of fantastic colors and designs. There are also cross-trainers, flats, dress shoes, and even fashion booties to choose from. Plus, every last option is as comfortable, supportive, and easy to wear as their signature clogs.
