Acorn’s slippers and shoes reflect the closely held values of founder David Quinn, who started the company in 1976 with a desire to make his friends comfortable. Down in his Maine workshop, he hand-stitched something special: Something that was part slipper, part sock, and all comfort. Just like that, the iconic Acorn slipper sock was born.
Quinn's goal was to bring comfort to consumers who value quality, workmanship and performance. From the original Slipper Sock to technologically advanced indoor/outdoor footwear, Acorn offers consumers an expansive and varied collection of indoor and outdoor footwear appropriate for all seasons. And no matter what Acorn creates, comfort is at the heart of what they do.
Acorn is also proud to collaborate with George Denney, the founder and past Chairman Emeritus of the iconic American brand Cole Haan, in the creation of their Handsewn Moccasin Collection. For those with a reverence for things made by hand and an appreciation for authenticity, Acorn presents a collection of genuine handsewn moccasins inspired by the art of old world shoemaking and enhanced with state-of-the-art materials and make. Acorn, a leader in at-home footwear, has always meant the ultimate in comfort, quality and craft. Now they take their passion to the street with this new collection of casual footwear for men.
Acorn is based in Lewiston, Maine, a town with a rich history of manufacturing shoes. The first Slipper Socks were made by local cutters, stitchers and packers. Their tradition is maintained today in hand-sewn detail-rich footwear. Find a pair of Acorns that fits your life and enjoy Comfort on Earth!
