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. Relaxed and classic in design, Hush Puppies has always defined what it means to be modern and casual.
