Our story begins in 1971 in a small town in Massachusetts where a father-son team made an all too obvious observation that forever changed the landscape of comfort footwear. Why, they asked, aren’t there dress and casual shoes as comfortable as sneakers? With that and the know-how from the three generations of shoemakers who preceded them, they took the answer into their own hands, establishing The Rockport Company and introducing the first dress shoes with built-in sport technology.
Nearly 45 years later and our curiosity and commitment to innovation haven’t wavered. Most recently, we entered a new chapter in our history, joining forces with Boston-based Drydock Footwear to form The Rockport Group. Today, The Rockport Group is home to Rockport, Cobb Hill, Aravon and Dunham, an impressive collection of men’s and women’s brands that offer our customers only the best in fit, technology and comfort. Call us biased, but we believe we’re on a path to becoming the greatest shoe company in the world. Follow our history below and stay tuned as we usher in a new era of innovation in comfort footwear.
