In 1876, the man who inspired the Etonic name, Charles A. Eaton, opened his first shoe factory in Brockton, MA. Over 60 years later, the Charles A. Eaton company ventured into golf shoe manufacturing, where it quickly gained a reputation for leading-edge technology and design. By the 1950s, hundreds of golf professionals were wearing the company's “Tournament of Champions” line. Two decades later, the Eaton Company recognized an opportunity in the running shoe category, and it soon became one of the most trusted and respected brands among diehard runners.
In 1976, the company officially changed its name to Etonic. In the years that followed, Etonic was sold and acquired by several different corporations. Despite changes in ownership, the company never lost sight of its core values, and quietly continued to build upon its rich heritage of product innovations and industry "firsts." From introducing the first golf shoe with GORE-TEX® linings to its breakthrough Stabilizer™ technology, Etonic continued to pioneer new ways to help athletes perform better. To enhance the experience of their chosen sport. And to help them finish one step ahead.
In fact, it was this relentless desire to explore—to innovate—that has driven Etonic throughout the years. Our goal? To link Etonic’s authentic past with its promising future by building great performance product; to reconnect with the loyal customers who have trusted Etonic through the years, and to captivate a whole new generation of athletes and fitness enthusiasts. With this renewed focus, drive, and confidence, Etonic will continue to evolve as an authentic American brand.
With a 150 year heritage of innovation in golf, running, basketball, tennis and performance walking footwear, Etonic is deep in the development of its next generation of products with a commitment to the highest standards of performance and style.
