Bed Stü derives from the unabashed streets of Bedford Stuyvesant – a neighborhood in central Brooklyn. Formed in 1930, the neighborhood’s name itself is an extension of the Village of Bedford, which was eventually expanded to include the area of Stuyvesant Heights. “Stuyvesant” comes from Peter Stuyvesant, the last governor of the colony of New Netherland.
The line of boots, shoes, and accessories boasts a vintage style that reflects both the resilience and character of the streets from which their design derives. They age our natural materials to perfection through proprietary processes and unique hand finishes – giving them their timeless yet modern appeal.
The genuine, full-grain, distressed, and brushed leathers create unique variations in color that make no two pairs of shoes the same. While the Goodyear-welted, tire-like, and rich leather outsoles coupled with cushioned insoles provide durability, comfort, and a sophisticated look engineered to last.
The philosophy at Bed Stü is the same today as it was when the brand emerged in 1995: always striving to find innovative ways to combine the old with the new. They take great pride in the craft and infuse it with passion and vitality into every facet of their truly unique and fashionable line.
