We’re proud to introduce our newest collection of exclusive footwear, made in partnership with brands known for their heritage, quality and attention to detail. While these pairs may earn the distinction of being your “good shoes,” they deserve to be admired—we recommend wearing them as often as possible. They’ll only get better for years to come.
Using the initials from founder Kihachiro Onitsuka’s personal Latin motto, anima sana in corpore sano (or “a sound mind in a sound body”), for its company name, Japanese brand ASICS has always been at the forefront of sneaker technology since its beginnings in 1949 as the Onitsuka Co.
This New England brand got its start making arch supports, eventually transitioning into specialized athletic footwear. In 1960, they became the first brand to make a running shoe in differing widths. Years later, the brand is known for its high-performance running shoes as much as its vintage-inspired sneakers worn across the globe.
Saucony is named for the Saucony Creek in Kutztown, Pennsylvania, home of its first factory over 125 years ago. The company used to print the words “sock a knee” on its shoeboxes so that customers would know how to pronounce the brand name correctly, and is now known the world over for its top-tier running-inspired shoes.
The Kenton boot
Whatever you have on your agenda, we have a Kenton boot to match the occasion. Our boots are made with premium leather uppers and Vibram® mini-lug outsoles for extra durability and grip. From sleek Chelsea boots to workwear-inspired pacer boots, everything in the Kenton collection is built to break in and get even better with wear.
The Alden Shoe Company
Founded in Middleborough, Massachusetts, Alden® is a family-owned company and the oldest shoemaker in New England—in fact, it’s the only remaining original shoemaker from the early days of the industry in eastern Massachusetts. They build all of their genuine-welted shoes, including our newest exclusives, with a precision-crafted tempered steel shank that provides shape and support for years of comfort. Using premium materials like Horween Genuine Shell Cordovan® and leather linings, Alden’s shoes are designed to last a lifetime.
Rancourt & Company
Established in Lewiston, Maine, by David Rancourt, Rancourt & Company started out as a family-owned shop that quickly grew into producing luxury calfskin loafers for some of the best brands in the world. Today, the factory is still family owned (and based in Lewiston), and is committed to sourcing the highest-quality materials. Our new exclusive combines a Gilman Camp-moc upper with a classic penny loafer outsole, featuring soft snuff suede from England’s renowned C.F. Stead tannery.
And from our own collection…
The Camden loafer
Penny loafers have occupied a place in American style for nearly a century. We craft ours with smooth leather or supple suede uppers, with a choice of rubber or leather outsoles that dress up or down. While there are many variations on the style, ours are based on the original design from the 1930s that was popular with college students—the coin slots fit the two cents needed for a phone call home.
Paraboot is a family-run company from the French Alps on its fourth generation of bootmakers. Named for the Brazilian port of Pará, where they source their rubber to this day, Paraboot sews their shoes in France using the best materials available. We’re bringing back the Milly boot from the brand’s archives, made in roughout suede from Chicago’s Horween Leather Company (one of the oldest continuously operating tanneries in the U.S.), with a padded glove-leather collar and Norwegian welt construction.
