Hush Puppies in Pakistan

Advertisements

Hush Puppies is an international brand of contemporary, casual footwear for men, women and children. The shoes have been described as “the classic American brushed-suede shoes with the lightweight crepe sole”. A division of Wolverine Worldwide, Hush Puppies is headquartered in Rockford, Michigan. Wolverine markets or licenses the Hush Puppies name for footwear in over 120 countries throughout the world. In addition, the Hush Puppies name is licensed for non-footwear fashion categories, including clothing, eyewear and plush toys.Hush Puppies uses a Basset Hound as its logo.

History:

The Hush Puppies brand was founded in 1958 following extensive work by Wolverine to develop a practical method of pigskin tanning for the USmilitary. (Pigskin is considered one of the most durable leathers and the government was interested in its use in gloves and other protective materials for soldiers.) Chairman Victor Krause developed the concept of a “casual” pigskin shoe to appeal to the then-growing post-warsuburbia in the United States. The brand became instantly recognizable as a leisure casual staple of late 1950s and 1960s American life.

The Hush Puppies name and mascot were coined by the brand’s first sales manager, James Gaylord Muir. Initially, the company’s advertising agency recommended naming the product “Lasers”. Then, on a selling trip to the southeastern United States, Muir dined with one of his regional salesmen and the meal included hush puppies, traditional fried southern cornballs. When Muir asked about the origin of the name, he was told that farmers threw hush puppies at the hounds to “quiet their barking dogs.” Muir saw a connection to his new product. “Barking dogs” in the vernacular of the day was an idiom for sore feet. Muir surmised his new shoes were so comfortable that they could “quiet barking dogs.”Hush Puppies claimed their rubber soles saved the life of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards when he accidentally touched his guitar against an ungrounded microphone at a 1965 concert in Sacramento, California. Richards was knocked unconscious, but medics believed that the crepe-soled Hush Puppies shoes he was wearing insulated him and saved his life.

In 1994, when sales of Hush Puppies were down to 30,000 pairs a year, and Wolverine was considering phasing out the brand, Hush Puppies suddenly became “hip” in the clubs and bars of downtown Manhattan, where young people were “buying them up” at small shoe stores. In the fall of 1995, fashion designers John Bartlett, Anna Sui, and Joel Fitzpatrick began featuring them in their collections. Depending on word of mouth, Wolverine sold 430,000 pairs of the shoes, and four times that the following year.Hush Puppies won the prize for bestaccessory at the Council of Fashion Designers awards dinner in 1996. The ’90s resurgence was featured as a prominent example in Malcolm Gladwell’s The Tipping Point

  4. I would like to draw the attention of concerned manufacturing and quality control section of Hush Puppies men shoes. I have been using shoes of this brand since long because of its quality and durability. However, the shoes which i recently bought from Karachi (Tariq Rd) has disappointed me due to its poor quality. The shoes model is Laurence Anin Mogno 42, and after only one week use, the upper skin started peeling-off from a number of spots. More over, the inner lining is rough and not comfortable. When shown to the sales person, he first did not accept it as a manufacturing fault and tried to convince me to use shoe polish to hide this defect. When insisted, he did not replace the shoe, but asked me to deposit the shoe, so they could send it to factory for possible repair/replacement, which may take few weeks. I requested the sales personnel that I bought the shoes to use it for special occasion next week, but they did not replaced it. This is really disgusting after sales service of product of such an International repute. I request the concerned responsible management persons to take a note of it and make a policy to provide better service to customers if they want to use name of International Brand. Regards.

  33. Lt Col Tahir Akram

    I am Lt Col Tahir Akram, presently serving in GHQ, Rawalpindi. I would like to bring to Your notice an extremely unprofessional and unbecoming attitude of staff of one of Your outlet in PWD Township, Rawalpindi, who are probably in My opinion using Your brand name “Hush Puppies” without knowing the ethics of the Brand rather abusing Your name. I reached to this conclusion after very solid analysis of the behavior of the owner, as time and again I was referring to the reputation of the Brand but he was least bother just concentrating on his few rupees risk which was not even very certain. With this much assessment I will now narrate briefly about the incidence.
    On 26 May 2013, I along with My wife went to the above mentioned outlet to change one pair of shoes which My wife bought for me once I was abroad on UN Mission in Morroco, with this understanding that if required will be allowed to change. My wife very clearly told them that the change if required will be after some months as she will be out of the country (Morroco) with me for few months. This was agreed and She bought the shoes. Yesterday once we went to the shop the concerned salesman or owner was not available while the one whole dealt with us was not only unprofessional but ungentle and even does not know how to deal with ladies. Knowing the fact that this is our Nation habit as a seller that one selling, the shop keeper promise every kind of favour which later on he forgets, I was trying to convince him that it’s early return was not possible as I was abroad, in spite of the fact that the salesman at that time has promised, but this Ungentleman was desperate to convince me that I am unjustified in My demand, in the process few of the costumer also intervene and asked him that he should behave and do the needful but seeing his stubbornness they even cancelled their shopping and left the shop with bad remarks.
    Ending up the incident, I would mention that I am not narrating this story to get back the shoes which I left at the shop seeing the third class attitude of the shop keeper but I feel it My responsibility to inform You that such like greedy and selfish people who does not have the sense of reputation must be penalized by any well reputed brand. This practice is very much valid abroad but I as a very honorable and responsible citizen shall not be left to very un courteous and uneducated salesman which are already in abundance in unbranded outlets.
    For further clarification I can be contacted at 03215501041 and 03216310313.
