Fundamentally based in nature with a thorough understanding of craftsmanship and endurance, BED|STU products are handcrafted of the finest natural materials available. With multiple lines to choose from – BED|STU cobbler, bed|stu footwear, Roan, and others - the company offers a broad selection of styles and unique looks.
Capitalizing on a love of working with materials provided by nature, BED|STU was founded in 1995. After converting 1200 sf of an old building into an office, design studio and warehouse, BED|STU began the creation of footwear that is inspired by the tough and resilient streets of Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Over the years the company has grown into a diverse, creative and fiercely independent group of people. People who intentionally do not have job titles; they just do whatever it takes to get the job done.
Boasting a cult following with its fans, the brand offers classic styling with an unapologetic attitude. Each piece possesses the craftsmanship that BED|STU's creations are known for as well as the diversity and identity of those wearing the product.
The Cobbler and Roan products are like the people at BED|STU - scratched, worn, comfortable and unique. The shoes are meticulously made one pair at a time. The body and the sole of each shoe forms to the shape of your foot. Once you wear them you’ll understand the meaning of custom made footwear. These shoes are built to last a lifetime and, with proper care, can be handed down to their rightful heirs.
