Daniel Green slippers were started by a traveling shoe salesman with the same name in 1881. When he was still with the Wallace Elliot Company in the city of New York, he went to Dolgeville, New York and was shown a pair of shoes that were made from waste piano felt that were produced by the Dolgeville Felt Mill. He immediately noticed that the felt shoes are being used by numerous factory employees to keep their feet protected from the cold stone floor of the factory. Impressed by what he saw, Green brought one pair back to Canastota, New York, where he showed it to his brother, William.

The brothers talked with the owner of the felt mill to see if they could be allowed to make felt slippers and shoes that would be sold to the shoe trade. The owner agreed and Daniel Green was given sole agency. When the brothers returned to Canastota, the company known for the Daniel Green dormie slippers today was founded.

At present, the company is selling shoes and slippers under three brands namely Daniel Green, L.B. Evans and Woolrich.
