posted on Tue, 20 Apr 2010 15:15:00 +0000




Meet the Lola shoe.


Designed by Laura Berry a textiles teacher from Birmingham and the winner of Hush Puppies "Design a Shoe " competition.
The Lola shoe is a vintage-inspired design that Laura hoped would take working mums like her from the school run to a night out on the town in comfort and most importantly style!

Available exclusively in Schuh stores nationwide, Lola is available in black or purple suede. Just like Laura it's funky and a little bit different. Laura's love for 50's and 60's design shows through in Lola in the use of funky prints and bright colours.

Hush Puppies trades designers with Cannondale Bicycles

Not content with just designing shoes for the high street, when Hush Puppies' design team were challenged by New Design Magazine to trade places with a designer from Cannondale Performance Bikes they tackled it with gusto!

Tanya from New Design Magazine comments "we love challenging creative people to put themselves in the shoes of a designer from a very different industry. The concept of trading place is simple: we ask the designers to give one another a design brief - something they would do in their jobs everyday – and then put the results in the magazine for designers everywhere to consider. We find that not only do the results make for an interesting article but the feedback from the participating designers is always that the challenge has refreshed their perspective and given them a new approach to their own job."

Cannondale briefed Hush Puppies designer Tim Richards to create a bike pedal that would specifically appeal to young women who are style conscious. Taking Agyness Deyn as his muse Tim went on to create a crazy PedalShoe – influenced by high fashion; Chanel’s clogs to be precise but with the practical in mind: Whilst cycling about town, the PedalShoe would protect footwear against the elements without appearing in opposition to her general look.

Erik Eagleman, Cannondale designer comments on the PedalShoe, ‘This is great! Very cool indeed. This address's a lot of issues that I saw problems with when approaching cycling accessories for the women’s market. You could sell it in three or four different sizes, S,M,L,XL. It keeps your dress shoes nice and clean, your foot doesn't move around on the pedal, you have the ability to pull as well as push. I really like this idea. Great work!”

In response to our brief to create a cycling-inspired tread design Erik designed a cool bike-chain inspired tread complete with men’s footwear silhouette. Tim comments on Erik’s design “Wow! I’m really impressed. Not only would this shoe design appeal to the cycling fraternity but also our current Hush puppies customer who buys casual fashion product form us. It’s really very commercial and the chain-link tread design just adds a neat twist. I also love the idea of creating a shoe inspired by retro bike shoes”.

So watch this space, and who knows we could be seeing Hush Puppies bikes and Cannondale shoes in the shops sooner than you think!

Glee's Mr Schuster wears Hush Puppies!

posted on Tue, 02 Mar 2010 15:36:00 +0000




I can't say we're surprised, we always new Glee's Mr Schuster was a stylish (and rather attractive) fellow, but we were still somewhat excited by the announcement in last night's episode of Glee that he wears Hush Puppies!


Instructed to hold open try-outs for the "Cheerios" the squad's despotic leader Sue Sylvester, is encouraged by Will Schuster to give the otherly-abled candidates a fair shot at getting into the squad with the argument that cheering is after all about "expressing oneself".

Sue's response is comic genius: "Well I'm about to projectile express myself all over your Hush Puppies. "

Who knew!

Classic.




Fit Left Fit Right

1 in 3 children require a different fitting between their left and right feet.

Only Hush Puppies have a unique set of precisely calibrated foot beds for each shoe, which tailor the fit individually to each foot if required.

All our shoes come in whole sizes, and selected styles in half sizes, with E, F and G fittings.

All our shoes have up to 3 months growth room built into them, therefore we recommend that your child’s feet should be re-measured every
3 months.

We recommend and supply an individual fitting service provided by professional trained fitters using our unique foot beds. Click here to find your nearest stockist.

A child’s foot evolves from toddler (containing 45 pieces of developing bone) to adult (in which most of the bone have fused together) by the age of 18. During this growth period, the soft bones must be carefully supported and allowed sufficient room to grow.

One in three children require different fittings for each foot. With our unique footbed system we are able to fit each foot individually for width and depth.

The average growth rate for children aged 1-4 is 2½ sizes per year. Between 5-10 years average growth rate 1 size per year.

An individual child’s foot may grow up to 4 sizes in a year particularly during infancy.
