It’s very rare that a shoe brand can lay claim to having saved the life of a world famous rock star. That, however, is something which Hush Puppies can do.
In 1965, at a gig in Sacramento, the Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards accidentally touched his guitar against an ungrounded microphone which caused an electrical flow to knock the musician unconscious. Doctors said that the accident would have been fatal were it not for the crepe-soled Hush Puppies he was sporting; the shoes insulated him and saved his life, letting him live to rock another day.
Hush Puppies are on of the most popular brands we stock at Barratts – and not just for their rock star saving abilities. They’re sleek, stylish, comfortable and available in ranges for all the family to enjoy. We’ve highlighted some of our favourite shoes below – as always, remember to click on the picture of any shoe that takes your fancy to take you straight through to our site.
