An innovative comfort footwear leader, Dansko stands at the forefront of sustainable and ethical business practices. It all began 22 years ago when wife and husband team Mandy Cabot and Peter Kjellerup discovered the very first Dansko shoe. A single shoe launched a comfort phenomenon! Dansko now offers sandals, boots, heels, flats and many, many types of clogs, with all-day comfort infused into every design. In 2012, Dansko announced a transaction in which all shares of the company were redeemed, including those of the founders, Mandy and Peter. All of the shares in the company are now held by a new ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan), resulting in a 100% employee owned company.
A founding B Corporation, Dansko believes people, community and planet should be right up there with the bottom line. That’s why Dansko gives their staff paid time off for volunteering and uses only renewable sources to power their LEED® Gold Certified Pennsylvania-based headquarters. The Dansko Foundation is dedicated to giving back to the community through employee sponsored grants and service projects to charitable organizations that demonstrate in word and in deed, a benefit for human kind.
