Dansko Shoe Technology
Dansko takes great care in the way they engineer their clogs, boots and shoes to ensure that they promote healthy feet. While they make many styles and colors that look great on the outside, Dansko is dedicated to providing their customers with shoes that feel great on the inside.
Dansko's state-of-the-art designs have even earned the APMA Seal of Acceptance for many of their collections. The technologies that go into Dansko clogs and Dansko Nursing Shoes will keep feet comfortable, even on the longest work shifts.
Some Dansko shoes and boots are made with Hand-Stapled Construction. This personally-done construction method means that the clog's uppers are carefully attached to the outsoles by hand, both for durability and to ensure that the quality of the shoes meet their highest standards
All Dansko Shoes that have Rocker-Bottom Outsoles are engineered to help prevent foot fatigue. The rocking motion of these uniquely designed outsoles helps to propel your forward while you walk, thereby reducing the overall stress and strain on your feet and lower legs.
HIGH-ABRASION TPU HEEL COUNTER
Dansko traditional clogs have a unique Heel Counter, rather than a more traditional tight fitting heel cup. A Heel Cup is non-confining, which allows for the free non-restricted movement of the heels as you walk. The counter is there to help properly guide your heels down on to the on the back of the shoe.
Dansko shoes are made with ergonomically designed to feel natural underfoot. This design allows the shoe to properly sync up with the shape of the foot for the ultimate in comfort and stability.
NATURAL ARCH TECHNOLOGY
Dansko's Natural Arch Technology was engineered for comfort. It is a stabilizing TPU Arch that provides support right where you need it most, helping to fight off foot fatigue when you are on your feet for long hours at a time.
SLIP-RESISTANT RUBBER OUTSOLE
Dansko shoes, mules and clogs that have a Slip-Resistant Rubber Outsole are ready for the work place. They are certified to provide traction in dry, wet, or oily/wet environments where solid traction is needed for safety.
APMA SEAL OF ACCEPTANCE
Some Dansko Collections have been awarded the APMA Seal of Acceptance, for promoting good foot health. These are footwear styles that have been made with the consumer's comfort and safety in mind.
PADDED INSTEP COLLAR
Many Danskos have a padded instep collar. The collar is the shoe edge that runs across the top of the foot, which is your instep. This cushioned padding creates a soft layer between the shoe and the delicate Metatarsal bones on the top of the feet.
LIGHT WEIGHT EVA MIDSOLE
Danskos that have a light-weight EVA Midsole are made to reduce the stress, strain and fatigue on your lower legs and feet. Lighter weight means less tired feet towards the end of a long work shift, when you have been on your feet all day.
REMOVABLE DUAL DENSITY PU FOOTBED
Dansko's removable footbeds allow you to replace the shoe's insole with a personal orthotic, to make them as comfortable as they can be for your feet.

Dansko makes a great collection of clogs that have a patent leather finish. Besides giving them a nice, shiny finish, their patent leather shoes resist liquid stains and spills and quickly wipe clean with a damp cloth.

Dansko clogs that have Memory Foam Cushioned Insoles will adapt to your feet over time. This results in a shoe that has unbeatable, personalized comfort.
TPU INNER FRAME
Dansko's TPU Inner Frame is the essential structure of the wall of the shoes and clogs. It is designed to provide lateral stability, to keep your gait straight and helps to reduce the chance of any torque, or twisting of the foot as you walk.
WIDE HEEL STRIKE
Dansko Clogs are made with a wide heel strike for enhanced stability. As you walk, the wide heel strike assures a confident, solid footfall landing.
Dansko makes clogs with a leather sock-linings for long lasting durability, and to keep their clogs feeling cool and comfortable on the inside.
