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.

    LOVE. I purchased 9 pairs of ballet flats in the hopes of finding ones that were cute, with arch support, some semblance of a sole, and in a wide width. These were the winners. Comfy, squishy inner, rubber sole, wide and huggy and doesnt look like it should be on your great gramma. WIN.

    This shoe is gorgeous but I couldn't even get my foot in them. They are extremely narrow. I'm usually a regular M width but these are not a regular M width. It should be marked N for narrow not M. I have the option of purchasing the wide width but I'm afraid it still might be narrow. That's how narrow these shoes are! Try at your own risk.

    I ordered the silver shimmer (off-white with silver studs) and they are CUTE. Not too casual, not too dressy. Fit true to size right out of the box, and felt very secure, which was great because I don't tend to wear ballet flats because I'm afraid my heel will slip or they'll fly off my feet if I take a quick step. These were great. EXCEPT, each of the shoes were missing several studs when they arrived. I could see where they had been glued on. There were also several strands of something like hot glue still sticking to the outside of the shoe where the upper meets the sole. The missing studs make me very concerned about how much life is in these shoes. If I was paying $20, I'd keep them, but at $80, I'm not willing to risk it. I'll be returning them.

    Nice looking shoes but I ordered a size 5 which seemed more like a size 3. My daughter couldn't even squeeze her size 5 feet into them.

    It is a very comfortable shoes. I ordered double wide since i have a bunion and my doctor recommended to use arch. This shoe has an insole that can be taken off easily and replace it with your insert arch. I highly recommend it.

    Received the shoe a few weeks ago and just got around to trying them and seeing how they feel. Great fit (especially for my wide feet), but there is a very loud squeak when I walk from my added orthotics. As I have never seen this in any other shoe, I will work on it to see how to make it stop. Would be 5 star but for the squeak!

    Look lovely and feel great. Very happy with the wide width and the support in the soles and arches. Thanks Zappos for carrying ww shoes (and cute ones too) for those of us who can't shove our feet into Ms

    Really cute, but way too big on heel and getting a smaller size was not an option. I had to return these; very disappointed.

    Love that these shoes are true to size! When I first tried them on I thought they were super comfortable. However, after wearing them for 12 hours straight I found that the top of the shoe felt snug and rubbed my foot (didn't cause blisters but was uncomfortable). After wearing them 3 days in a row, they do seem like they are starting to get more comfortable. I am wearing these with no show socks which have a seam around the top edge of the sock and this may be contributing to the discomfort. Perhaps wearing these shoes with stockings or dress socks might be more comfortable. My other complaint is that the strap has velcro and I've had the velcro come unfastened a few times which is annoying. What I do like about these shoes is that they have a slight heel and are really stable. I have plantar fasciitis and these seem to ease the pain. I also have to walk back and forth across a parking lot numerous times a day and they are really stable! I do think from the side profile they do look a little "old" so to speak however, when they are peaking out from under my dress pants I think they look cute. I like the way the front of the shoe is designed. Overall, I would recommend. Just be expect to have a break in period.

    I loved this shoe style and brand but the width was too narrow for my foot. Runs narrow :-(
