Hauff's Department Store, Ballard

The Hauff's Department Store Boot was designed by Blackbird in collaboration with Alden of New England, makers of custom boots since 1884. These boots are inspired by our love of early 20th century gentleman's attire. Every man needed a sturdy pair of dress boots like these to act as the workhorse of his wardrobe. The name of the boot comes from the idea that back-in-the-day you have might have found this boot for sale at Ballard's first department store, Hauff's, which was originally located on Ballard Ave (between 1913 to 1918) and then moved to the the ground floor of the Ballard Building on Market Street where Blackbird's corporate offices now reside. If you are looking for a tough, comfortable, and versatile boot to work into your wardrobe, look no further.
