The Dansko Brand

Dansko is well-loved by nurses, teachers, those in the food industry, retail workers, and many others. So, what’s the deal with Dansko? Their products offer serious comfort for those on-the-go and on their feet during the day. We also like the brand’s message of committing to a better tomorrow and living an active lifestyle, all while being comfortable and stylish. Dansko goes back to 1990 when it was founded by Mandy Cabot and Peter Kjellerup. Mandy and Peter were former horse trainers and their passion began when they sought out the perfect “barn shoe.” This perfect shoe was found in a tiny shop in Europe; it was the traditional clog. Mary and Peter returned with suitcases filled with clogs and soon started selling them from the back of their station wagon. Clogs spread like wildfire, and people sought out this new shoe. Thus, Dansko, “Danish Shoe”, was born.

Dansko Sizing + Fit

Like many of our brands, Dansko uses standard European sizing for all of their footwear.

36: 5 – 5 1/2

37: 6 – 6 1/2

38: 7 – 7 1/2

39: 8 – 8 1/2

40: 9 – 9 1/2

41: 10 – 10 1/2

42: 11 – 11 1/2

43: 12

When it comes to the fit of the professional or XP 2.0, don’t be surprised if you experience that “slipping” feeling near your heel. This is completely normal for a clog. If you didn’t know already, Dansko features a protective heel counter that allows the heel to move up and down freely while providing lateral stability. In addition, the rocker bottom also allows for a forward motion for hours of comfortable support throughout your day. Both of these features contribute to that “slipping” feeling. But as always, stop in and we can measure you up appropriately.

In the shop we carry the Dansko Professional Clog in many different seasonal prints and the XP 2.0 in three different styles: blue denim, a blue foral, and black patent currently. New Spring inventory is arriving daily, so be sure to stop in and check the brand out!

Dansko Professional Clog Summary

The Dansko Professional Clog is a classic. Compared to the newer version, the XP 2.0, the original features a firmer construction and a polyurethane base. Both are excellent quality and as mentioned, it really comes down to your personal preference. Both versions would work well for someone who is walking or standing on their feet for the duration of the day.

Dansko XP 2.0 Summary

The Dansko XP 2.0 when compared to the professional clog is just as great when it comes to comfort and support. However, there are some differences. The XP 2.0 is a softer ride and is less firm. Recently updated, this version features a cold molded EVA base, it’s incredibly lightweight, and the base is supported by a softer construction all around. So, which version should you get? It’s all preference, but stop in soon and we can help you decide. Whether you go for the iconic professional or the new XP, you’ll love the comfort features.
