    The Story of Acorn


    Our Past

    Acorn founder David Quin simply wanted to do something nice for his friends suffering through the grueling winters of Maine. Quin began hand-sewing leather soles on thick, cozy ragg wool socks and handing them out as gifts. In the process he created an icon, The Original Slipper Sock.

    Although a lot has changed since then, our products continue to be inspired by the colors of fall in the Northeast.

    Our Present

    Today, Acorn has expanded far beyond the Mom and Pop shops of Maine, but we still hold true to our original dedication to comfort and relaxation. We make Acorns for indoors and out, fireplace and fire pit, couch and hammock for feet of all sizes.

    The perfect choice for après sports and casual weekends.

    Our Future

    Small steps make a big difference. Acorn is concerned about the future of the earth. We are working to improve the sustainability of all aspects of our operations, including materials used for footwear, product packaging, print materials, manufacturing, and supply sourcing.

    It's our job to leave this planet better than we found it.
