The original Boston shoemakers with historic roots. Our New England shoemakers crafted their first styles in 1899, and since then, no other shoe company has understood men better than Bostonian.
Durability and comfort come together in the same commuter-friendly package. The Bridgeport hits all the classic notes of traditional shoemaking while embracing modern innovation and eliminating the break-in period.
WE FOCUS SOLELY ON THE FUTURE, CRAFTING EXCEPTIONAL SHOES FOR THIS GENERATION AND THE NEXT
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.
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.
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.
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!
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'.
Over a century later, we still practice the craft our forefathers passed on. While most 100-year olds are content to revel in the glory of days gone by, we at Bostonian have our sights fixed firmly on the future. As we move into our second century, America's Classic Shoemaker is just hitting its stride. Here's to the next 100.
