The need for a perfect every day shoe was clear to Dankso shoe founders Mandy Cabot and Peter Kjellerup. Cabot and Kjellerup were former horse trainers who were on the search for the ideal "barn shoe". They found a pair of clogs in a small shop in Europe and fell in love with the shoes. The Dansko partners brought their new product to the United States and shared it with the world.
Dansko’s mission is to “improve the quality of people’s lives through great products, sincere passion and a commitment to a better tomorrow.” Their passion to create great products continues to this day.
