Spring Preview: Vintage Shoe Co.

H.H. Brown is banking on its 125-year heritage in the domestic shoemaking business to spark interest in its new Vintage Shoe Co. division. The line of men’s and women’s shoes are inspired by American styles that the Greenwich, Conn.-based company said has withstood the tests of time. Included in the men’s offering are engineer, harness, Western and jodhpur boots, in addition to classic chukkas, brogues and penny mocs. Playing up the nostalgic element, the leathers have a weathered and timeworn finish. The collection is produced in the company’s U.S. factory and is made with domestic leathers. Set to retail from $220 to $375, it will be aimed at high-end boutiques, department and specialty stores and is slated March and April delivery.
