Rockport is a company that makes walking
and casual shoes
which are known for their extraordinary comfort
. Rockport was founded in 1971 by Saul Katz and his son Bruce, and was acquired by Reebok
Rockport has since become a major player in the casual shoe industry, largely because their shoes have "casual attire" style but incorporate the comfort of a walking shoe. GQ magazine (August 1990) reported that President George Bush wears Rockport shoes. Fortune magazine (January 25, 1993) reported that President Clinton preferred Rockport shoes.
Today, Rockport manufactures a wide array of walking and casual shoes for men and women, and has expanded into the apparel and accessories markets. Their homepage is: http://www.rockport.com/
