New England Outerwear

United States
Based in Rockport

When Dan Heselton and Greg Cordeiro started New England Outerwear Co in 2012 they were, as the name says, primarily producing outerwear. But their real passion is shoes and the focus of the company quickly shifted to produce high quality, 100% American made by hand footwear that are tried and tested in the harsh climates of New England. Specifically the handsewn moccasin variety that’s traditionally been made in Maine for generations. A true moccasin constructions allows a shoe to wrap, shape, and mold to the exact shape of your foot.

The shoes are produced in their workshop in Lewiston, Maine. Each stitch is sewn by a craftsmen or women with over 20 years experience of making footwear. The brand use the very best materials such asHorween leather and Vibram soles and is offering complete recrafting/soling services for every pair of footwear they sell during its life. Most of their footwear are custom made to your order, as they have a very limited number of each model in stock and the demand is high. The upside to this is that they can make a shoe that is perfectly made for the size your feet and you can choose from a larger range of colours and materials.
