A shoe company that offers a perfect fit for every foot. Proudly made in the USA since 1982.



Founded in 1982 by Bart and Jan Hersey, Hersey Custom Shoe Company was born in a converted sheep barn in Maine. Hersey quickly became known as the #1 running shoe, hand-crafted for each foot at a time, with the only shoe that can be re-soled up to 4 times during it's lifetime. 25 years later, Stephen Keoseian took over the business and continues the legacy of the only custom sneaker company made in the USA.
