Englin’s Fine Footwear Presents Dansko Footwear. When you think of closed-back clogs, you probably think of Dansko. Dansko Clogs feature a fully closed heel for superior support and protection. In 2007, Dansko Shoes won the Footwear Plus Award in Women’s Comfort for the 3rd time in their 17-year corporate history. This relatively new company was started by a couple that fell in love with the closed-back clogs they found in Denmark. Through that love, they started Dansko, which translates as “Danish Shoe.” Dansko Shoe's biggest seller are still the Dansko Clogs with the closed-backs. Some of Danskos other more popular shoes include the Dansko Professional, the Dansko Marcelle, and the Dansko Risa. Dansko now sells a wide variety of shoes with strappy sandals, mary jane shoes, ladies dress shoes, and even high heel pumps.
