Port Washington Studio Recraft and Custom Services

Our factory in Wisconsin is the birthplace of our shoes and the source of our passion for craft. It’s here that our experts not only build the best American footwear, but also carry forwards the time-tested processes that define our commitment to the art of shoemaking.

Recrafting Services

Since 1922, our Goodyear bench welt has allowed us to restore your footwear using the same materials and last used in their original construction. By sending them back to the source, you’re putting your shoes and boots in the bands of experts who are committed to restoring your footwear so they can continue being part of your journey. Over the last decade we’ve saved over 500,000 shoes from landfills nationwide.

Customization Services

Make your mark on some of our most sought-after icons. Our specialized program gives you the opportunity to design your own pair of custom footwear using your choice of upper and sole materials. It takes 48 pairs of hands to build each of our shoes. Creating a custom design makes you the 49th craftsperson in this signature process.
