The Tannery

Boasting a crackerjack stable of labels and styles, the Tannery exists to serve the active male’s foot: Will it be Clarks Wallabies for a stroll through the Back Bay or $220 Scarpa hikers for the Everest expedition? Johnston & Murphy loafers for the board meeting or Birkenstocks for the weekend on the Vineyard? An accommodating staff and two spacious locations ensure superb fitting and extensive inventory. Whatever the function, rest assured your well-shod feet will lead you there in style and comfort.
