In 1958 Hush Puppies created the world's first casual shoe, signaling the beginning of today's relaxed style. By utilizing supple suede in combination with lightweight crepe soles, Hush Puppies created a soft, breathable and very comfortable shoe - an innovation that would ultimately change the kind of shoes we wear. In an era when footwear choices were limited, Hush Puppies provided the world with a new alternative. A modern shoe embraced for its authentic style and casual flair. Relaxed and classic in design, Hush Puppies has always defined what it means to be modern and casual.
