Rockport shoes are modern crowd-pleasers. Love comfort as much as style? So does ShoeBuy and this best-seller, which has always injected sports cushioning and now gets more edge than ever with adidas.
Still redefining how good everyday shoes can feel, Rockport built a solid reputation from its start in 1971. The brand began in New England like so many others, founded by a father and son, but quickly made a name for itself by pioneering the use of athletic manufacturing in casual shoes. An industry first, Rockport's leather loafers fused Vibram outsoles to its premium upper. The DresSports line in 1983 debuted as the first dress shoe with a sports sole — its success led to more flexible outsoles with more shock-absorbing, scored tread. To help prove its performance, Rockport's Vice President ran New York's marathon in 1990, inspiring some of the brand's athletic fans to do the same over the years.
The loved label's fitness fits and lightweight designs have carried through to options for every occasion, including women's heels like their Seven To 7 pumps. In fact, today, ADIPRENE by adidas is incorporated into all Rockport shoes for truly high-tech athletic comfort and support in every step. Rockport joined the adidas family of brands in 2006, ensuring you'll enjoy the latest in sports-infused fashion whether you're rocking boots, loafers, Oxfords, sandals, or walking shoes. Many styles also feature waterproofing — some are even fully washable! So don't sweat it if you can't decide on just one pair. Everywhere you go, whatever the weather, you can put some extra spring in your step — and get compliments — thanks to your go-to Rockports.
