    Hanig Made in Chicago Sandals

    Hanig Made in Chicago sandals came from a desire to create a shoe that is crafted in Chicago, using leathers from Chicago, with an original style based on this city’s heritage of design.

    Irv Hanig started the business, Hanig’s Footwear, in 1944 at the corner of Clark and Diversey. His son Peter Hanig has worked in the store since 1971; and now his son, Daniel Hanig, is his partner.

    Peter started work on the sandal concept in February 2015. Shoemaker Sara McIntosh agreed to help with development after meeting with Hanig at her shoemaking school in Ravenswood. Hanig’s next met with Skip Horween of Horween Leather on Elston, who provided the hides for the sandals. From design to material and productions, the Hanig Made in Chicago sandals are completely a product of the city.

    The new collection is available now, in stores and online!
