West Grove, PA: In response to the recent disaster in Japan, Dansko has committed a total of $125,000 in shoes and financial aid to the island nation.

"For us, giving back to the local and global community is a guiding principle and our relief effort for Japan is part of our ongoing partnership with Soles4Souls,” says Dansko Co-Founder and CEO Mandy Cabot.
