Founded in Marlborough, Massachusetts in 1971 by father and son Saul and Bruce Katz, Rockport produces footwear and accessories including Rockport handbags and socks. The company has since moved “down the way” to Canton, Massachusetts, and it was purchased by Reebok in 1984, which is now a subsidiary of Adidas. Since the company was already internationally known for their high quality Rockport walking shoes, the advantages to Reebok, and later Adidas, seemed obvious, although today, combining technologies across brands has produced far superior shoes. Certain smart design details set this brand apart; for example, Rockport shoes feature removable insoles in over 97% of their footwear. Also, Rockport is the world's leading user of Vibram oustoles, which provide maximum shock absorption and cushioning.
Whether you're looking for Rockport oxfords, as U.S. Presidents Bush and Clinton wore, Rockport sandals or Rockport boat shoes, the official shoe of the 1994 Whitbread Round The World Race, men have plenty of choices is lightweight, office-worthy, comfortable shoes. The company introduced another major innovation in 1989 with the women's Walking Pump, just the first of many Rockport pumps which are available today, marking the beginning of a complete women's line which includesRockport athletic shoes, Rockport platform shoes and boots. Rockport shoes are truly, consistently lightweight, offer long-term comfort and provide exceptional breathability, and as the first company to use athletic design and support in dress and casual shoes, you'll want to return to Rockport.
