Sanita clogs are the original Danish clogs, those wooden shoes known world round. These clogs are more than just shoes, they are a lifestyle, steeped in tradition and known worldwide for their excellence and comfort. Sanita clogs are not a trend. They are a part of a culture, a culture that has long been in existence.
The History of the Sanita Clog Company
Sanita has been making clogs in the traditional Danish way since the company opened its factory doors in 1907. To this day, all of Sanita’s clogs are handmade by master craftsmen in Europe, specifically Denmark and Poland. Despite their European roots, Sanita’s products have found new homes all over the world including North America. They continue to grow in popularity as more and more people discover their comfortable nature and versatility.
The company was founded by none other than Christen Anderson who created the first pair of wooden clogs ever in the history of the world. He handmade and delivered these clogs to eager customers, transporting the product in a basket strapped to his bicycle.
Today, Sanita honors the legacy begun by Christen Anderson and they continue to make genuine Danish clogs that are both fit and functional. Sanita produces roughly over one million pair of clogs each year. These clogs are sold throughout the United States as well as fifty-four other countries throughout the world.
Making Sanita Clogs
The process of making Sanita clogs begins with a simple, handmade drawing of what the finished product will look like. Master craftsmen then take these drawings and construct the clogs based on the design. In 1984, Sanita patented a special sole design. The company cites this design as the “backbone” of the company. Recognized for its comfort and durability, the special sole transfers motion from the heels to the toe, thereby working to reduce the amount of stress placed on one’s back and one’s legs. As far as sizing, Sanita notes that the perfect fit will leave a quarter inch gap between the heel of the foot and the back of the clog. Achieving this ideal sizing will provide the wearer with the maximum amount of comfort and the ability to really enjoy the Sanita experience.
