Launched with a ton of support via Kickstarter in late 2016, Hound & Hammer is a small father-and-son owned company aspiring to build a line of classic casual footwear with a modern look, using quality materials and for a reasonable price. Their success continued with a profile in Forbes magazine and the Wall Street Journal. However they are committed to quality and, luckily for us, still under the radar.
Hound & Hammer’s proprietary "lasts" (e.g. foot molds) were tested extensively with friends & focus groups. (P.S. they can sign us up for the next round!) All their shoes are made from rich leather and suede with hand finished treatments, full glove leather linings, and other top shelf components. The factory is cooperative, with shoemakers earning a percentage of every pair sold. We love this brand from head to toe!
