For more than 70 years Chicagoans seeking excellence in casual and dress footwear have come to rely on the Hanig name for their global fashion trends and expertise in comfort and style. Chicago native and Hanig’s Footwear CEO Peter Hanig has taken his love for shoes and Chicago to the next level with the Hanig & Co. Shoe Project; a collaboration to create and craft shoes in Chicago using Chicago’s Horween leathers, and styles inspired by Chicago’s rich heritage of architecture and design.

“The first two designs from the Hanig&Co. label, the Ravenswood and Halsted, are selling well in our Plaza del Lago location,” says Peter Hanig. The Halsted’s thicker laces secure the soft Horween leather around the foot for a comfortable, snug and adjustable fit. The Ravenswood is a slightly dressier sandal with more leather covering the foot. Each style comes with a leather lined, cushioned footbed and a Vibram Ripple sole that captures the strong and successful attitude of Chicago.” This collaboration includes Peter and Dan Hanig, and Leah Zimmerman from Hanig’s Footwear, and Sara McIntosh from the Chicago School of Shoemaking.

Northshore residents and shoppers can experience the Hanig&Co. styles along with Hanig’s hand-picked unique selections seven days a week at Plaza del Lago. Monday – Saturday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. For more information on this Made in Chicago project, visit
