Bostonian has been crafting men's dress shoes with uncompromised comfort and exceptional style for over 110 years. Founded in 1899 by Charles Jones in Whitman, Massachusetts, Bostonian was the first premium men's footwear brand — and the first to introduce flexible dress shoes. Their passion for creating breakthrough comfort technologies has advanced the footwear industry, providing men with a highly versatile selection of traditional and contemporary styles that equip them to confidently pursue success.
Bostonian pioneered the first truly flexible leather dress shoe, offering our customers footwear that feels perfectly broken in from the very first step. Their Flexlite® and DURAlite® collections combine athletic-shoe technology with dress-casual shoe style, revolutionizing comfort in long-lasting, ultra-lightweight footwear.
Clarks Companies, North America bought Bostonian in 1979 and has proudly continued the Bostonian tradition - providing men with the quality, value and comfort that have earned their loyalty for over a century.
