Here’s what the free spirits at Bed Stu have to say about their company and their shoes: “Capitalizing on a love of working with materials provided by nature, Bed|Stü was founded in 1995 in an old building in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. At BED:STU it’s not about where you came from, it’s about where you’ve decided to go. And where we have decided to go is always ahead. BED:STU is lean, fast, and tough like the streets that inspired our shoes. And as long as we can make our way, we will make shoes for those who have no use for the beaten path.” Bed Stu. Boots that the boys at Bed Stu like to call “old soul, with modern style, and a rebellious spirit”. Seems to us they pretty much nailed it.
