Last week’s compass show offered some new footwear, and one company in particular caught my eye. Walk-Over shoes packed a heavy punch, and had an impressive line-up. Originally hailing from Connecticut, Walk-Over is not new to the shoe game by any means. After a brief hiatus, they’re back in production in the USA, where they’ve held residence since the 19th century. Known for making some of the best bucks around, their reputation is upheld with the latest offerings.
I was at first drawn to the Walk-Over stall by my recent crush on dark bucks for the fall, but quickly found that not only are these shoes well made and manufactured state-side, they have a story and history. I’d say nine times out of ten, if something has a good story, history, and aren’t made like shit, I’m an easy sell. Walk-Over is no exception to this rule. Look for these guys in some of the larger department stores as well as online.
