About Hush Puppies

Hush Puppies - An American Legend

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 shoes provided the world with a new alternative. A modern shoe embraced for its authentic style and casual flair. 

Since the beginning, the beloved basset hound has embodied the easygoing nature that is Hush Puppies. Introduced during a time of new freedoms and changing lifestyles, the Hush Puppies brand name and mascot quickly became symbolic of the emerging optimism of mid-century America. 

Relaxed and classic in design, Hush Puppies shoes have always defined what it means to be modern and casual. Today, Hush Puppies continues to innovate, bringing technical excellence and genuine style to men, women, and children in over 120 countries. 

A revolutionary idea - born fifty years ago - continues to inspire Hush Puppies today.

    I was really hopeful this would fit. I was surprised how much I liked the style. It is a cute "comfort" shoe and has good arch support. It would have been perfect for me to walk to work in suits. But, the top of the shoe is a little high on my larger foot (and high arch) so it just won't work.

    I'm very pleased with these shoes. Comfortable and good looking with no laces to hassle with for both casual and business casual occasions. I think I will order another color too.

    Sadly I ordered this shoe again in a larger size; however, it felt no different in terms of comfort. The shoe bed and sole is very rigid and does not offer enough internal support for someone who walks a lot and relies on a comfortable walking shoe. I had to go back to New Balance in black and order yet again another shoe. I hope this time my feet can catch a break so I don't need to order again. I would not recommend this shoe for anyone that has a wide foot and needs a larger toe box.

    I was extremely disappointed with this shoe. I had this style previously and had no problem wearing when doing a lot of walking. This time around I noted that the sole bed was very rigid and the sole of the shoe has no internal "built ins" to add spring and shock absorption. The sole is rigid and sort of hard for a walking shoe. It felt very narrow. I have a broad foot and high instep. I reordered the shoe in a half size longer - still no difference. Would not recommend this shoe for someone who has special foot needs or has to do a lot of walking. The toe box could be higher. I went back to New Balance in black for the internal supports of the shoe and true to fit sizing.

    I really wanted to love these shoes. Super cute, nice support, accommodating of my wide forefoot and narrow heel. Unfortunately the top of the shoe is so hard, it seriously hurt the top of my toes and foot. Ouch!

    Thank you for contacting me. I have really liked all of the shoes I've received so far and am very excited that I am able to order shoes in narrow width. However, this particular pair are a little too tight and I must send them back. All of the others fit perfectly and I am very happy with all of them. The rt shoe feels tight because I have a hammer toe. The other shoes are all fine.

    I have very wide feet and it is almost impossible to find a shoes for work that fits. This show does and is actually comfortable. I love Zappos, the selection is great and the free shipping and returns makes it like having your own personal shoe salon!

    These are just okay. For the price, I expected more (and have received more in other shoes). They feel like a cheap $49 pair of flats and I would probably keep them if they were around that price. The leather is nothing special - the shiny black feels more like plastic. The fit was fine and seems true to size. The heel kept slipping off on me and after sitting there with them on for a few minutes I felt like my feet were suffocating, and I couldn't imagine a day of going through all that, so I am sending them back.

    I love these shoes! This is my second pair. They walked me all over Europe. I bought a new pair because I wore the other pair so much that they actually did wear down a bit (after four years) and lost some of their epic cuteness. They are a great value!
