WE FOCUS SOLELY ON THE FUTURE, CRAFTING EXCEPTIONAL SHOES FOR THIS GENERATION AND THE NEXT

1899

THE LEGACY BEGINS

Our New England shoemakers crafted their first styles in 1899, and in the 1900s, we became the first American company to manufacture welted shoes under one roof.

1910

THE MAKERS OF GREAT SHOES

We quickly became known for offering the right fit and were the first American brand to introduce an extensive range of sizes and widths.

1923

AND THE WORD SPREAD

In 1923, it was no surprise we were the first men's dress-shoe company to run national advertising, and soon after, in 1925, we opened stores in major cities across the country.

1941

MADE FOR MEN

In 1941, we built shoes for Uncle Sam's fighting men in World War II. Fortunately, the shoes did not fight back!

1960

PIONEERING INNOVATORS

Pioneering in dress innovation from the very beginning, we bent the rules and turned a few heads with the first flexible dress shoe - the 'flex-o-moc'.

As we move into our second century, America's Classic Shoemaker is just hitting its stride. Here's to the next 100.
