Meet Rockland

Meet Rockland

A small coastal town in Maine which originally was known as the “Landing Place” to the indigenous people that called it home.  Today, Rockland thrives with a strong tourist economy which includes ferry service to nearby islands and robust manufacturing and service industries. The folks in Rockland are resourceful, engaged and innovative.

 Walking the coastal streets along the harbor; we are reminded of the similarities between the folks of Rockland and the core values of the Acorn brand. Acorn continues to have strong connections to our communities, engaging relationships with consumers, and innovative pursuits conserving natural resources.   Acorn designs products that deliver their core values of comfort, quality, and innovation in responsible ways.

Innovation. Redefining all-day comfort with style.  Their newest women’s styles, the Rockland Moc and Rockland Clog, are constructed with proprietary Everywear ® technology outsoles which are designed to enhance rebound with each step you take for all day comfort. This results in long wearing comfort.  The last step of the day is just as cushy as the first.

 Versatility. This collection was designed for how we live.  The proprietary Everywear® technology offers all-day comfort and flexibility with the versatility for indoor outdoor use.  These ultra-comfy slipper shoes have been seen heading into the gym, at the grocery store and bus stop.  They aren’t just WFM house shoes. If you have little ones, these are the perfect wear Everywear®  footwear because you never know what direction your little one will take you in that day!

 Rethinking Materials.  As new materials are sourced, one major checkbox that Acorn considers is whether the new material choices deliver a more sustainable solution. The Rockland collection is constructed with recycled felt vamp uppers. The berber sock and lining is from recycled materials.  All of this means that less materials end up in landfills.

 Sizing. This style is sized whole sizes from women’s 6 to 11.  The moc is designed more form fitting, if you like more breathing room around your bare feet, some have recommended to size up.   Consider sizing up if you plan on wearing socks or if you are in between two sizes. Or opt for the clog with its open heel back, which has a more forgiving fit.

Acorn began in a small corner of a sparsely populated state. The natural surroundings lacked dense population, but those people that were close by were rich in tenacity, ingenuity and resourcefulness.  Over 45 years later the qualities that launched the brand also drive it to innovate, consider the impacts on the environment and always strive for a premium quality product that is a good value for customers.
