Join us in living life
on the bright side.

Be True.

Our mission is to inspire individuals to live life on the bright side.
We believe optimism is contagious, and through small acts of
positivity, we can help shape a brighter world. We are inspired by
our Optimism Instigators who are spreading their positive outlook
throughout their local communities in quirky, unexpected ways.

Our most lovable Optimism Instigator has always been our dog.
Our basset hound, affectionately known as the "Hush Puppies
Dog", has grown to be a globally recognized icon.

Be Comfy.

Hush Puppies was founded in 1958, an era where
uncomfortable dress shoes were your only choice of
footwear – even on the weekends. When we said we
invented causal, we weren’t kidding. We set out to find
a solution for sore feet, otherwise known as “barking
dogs.” Introducing the world to casual shoes and a
more casual lifestyle, we created shoes to help them
hush their puppies. We’ve stood for comfort from the
beginning, and we continue to innovate through our
Bounce Technology platform today.

Be Bright.

In the '50s and '60s, black and brown were the only color
options for footwear. We introduced colorful rainbow suedes
into the mix, bringing a new means of expression to feet all
over the world.

In the ‘90s, we revived these classic styles and introduced an
inspired line of colors that included Day-Glo Green and Pepto
Bismol Pink. We continue to experiment with color and
self-expression and are constantly on the lookout for patterns
and colors that will bring more fun to your feet. At our core,
we believe a pop of color will brighten any day.

Be Bold.

Hush Puppies is part of the fashion history of America.
Our shoes have been worn by celebrities and icons
ranging from rock stars to royalty. It’s been reported
that Hush Puppies may have saved the life of Rolling
Stones guitarist Keith Richards when he accidentally
touched his guitar against an ungrounded microphone
at a 1965 concert – so basically, we (maybe) saved rock
and roll.
