Made here

Port Washington, Wisconsin

We’ve been handcrafting footwear in America using the finest materials from around the world since 1922. It’s a time-tested practice that involves 212 different steps, 48 pairs of hands and results in what we’re proud to call real shoes.

Building the best footwear requires a passion for every stage of the process. The people, the materials and the commitment to quality in each stitch that make our shoes and boots the height of timeless American style. From hand-selecting the leathers to the final polish, join us for an in-depth look at the combination of traditional techniques and innovative procedures that go into making footwear that exceeds expectations right out of the box and for years to come.

Built to Last

The 360° Goodyear Bench Welt we use to construct most of our shoes and boots makes for sturdier, more comfortable footwear right now and means these styles can be recrafted by our experts in the future. Our recrafting process not only extends the lifespan of your favorite footwear, it’s also saved more than 500,000 shoes from landfills over the last ten years.
