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 looking for a wide width shoe for walking, however I found this shoe's sole not thick enough or supportive enough to absorb shock from walking on concrete (traveling/sightseeing). They also slipped up on the heel and were very uncomfortable. I could feel my heel being rubbed harshly with only a few steps. It also rubbed harshly along my pinky toe. I had to return them.

    wonderful shoe! But with all my bone problems it did not work for me.

    Shoe is attractive and strap is long enough for my high instep, but the sole is thin and hard. It does not cushion the foot and does not support the arch.

    I liked the shoe, but it didn't like me. Nice style, but I have a skinny (not really narrow, but bony) foot which was swimming in this shoe. The strap was dragging on ground. Had to return.

    Love this shoe and ready to order 2 more. I have really painful feet and need these to wear with a dress. They seem like they will get me through the night in comfort.Thanks to Zappo's excellent customer service and return policy I can find the right shoe for me!

    Good looking shoe and very confortable. Be careful with sizing, tends to run larger than your standard size.

    I have a very narrow 6.5 foot and usually avoid heels of any kind. These shoes are fabulous. I can wear them all day in my busy office and have even worn them with cuter weekend outfits. Love.

    This shoe is cute and feels wide enough but something is off with the sizing. My usual size (I wear a 9) was way too tight. The 9.5 was still too small and the 10 is too big. Bummer!

    I'm sold on Dansko for comfort and true to size, but thought I would try these Hush Puppies (less expensive!)The toe box seemed to be cut too short and the shoes were too big. I returned them. I love Zappos free shipping and great customer service. It's risky to buy shoes online, but Zappos makes it easy!!!
