In 1958, Hush Puppies introduced the world to a new kind of footwear - shoes with casual style and an easy-going attitude made to relax in. With over 17 million pairs of shoes sold every year in 150 countries around the world, Hush Puppies is a global brand, a household name, and a cultural icon.
We are a leading comfort brand for everyday and every wear! Here, at Hush Puppies, we design shoes especially for you – without compromising on comfort and style. We celebrate unconventional beauty and embrace the quirk. We champion people that are spreading joy in small, surprising ways.
We continue to experiment with colour and self-expression and are constantly on the lookout for patterns and colours that will bring more fun to your feet. At our core, we believe a pop of colour will brighten any day.
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 recognised icon.
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 casual, 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 bring ridiculously comfy shoes to Australia and New Zealand.
