Hush Puppies was founded in 1958, an era where uncomfortable dress shoes were your only choice of
footwear – even on the weekends. When they said they invented casual, they weren’t kidding. Hush Puppies set out to find a solution for sore feet, otherwise known as “barking dogs.” Introducing the world to casual shoes and a more casual lifestyle, they created shoes to help them hush their puppies. They've stood for comfort from the beginning, and continue to innovate through their Bounce Technology platform today.
