Elias Shoes is proud to be a distributer of Rockport shoes. Not only are their shoes extremely comfortable for both men and women, but they, like us, don't see that as a reason to sacrifice style. Below is a snippet of the story behind Rockport shoes.
Our story begins in 1971… in a small town in Massachusetts where a father-son team made an all too obvious observation that forever changed the landscape of comfort footwear. Why, they asked, aren’t there dress and casual shoes as comfortable as sneakers? With that and the know-how from the three generations of shoemakers who preceded them, they took the answer into their own hands, establishing The Rockport Company and introducing the first dress shoes with built-in sport technology.
Nearly 45 years later and our curiosity and commitment to innovation haven’t wavered. Most recently, we entered a new chapter in our history, joining forces with Boston-based Drydock Footwear to form The Rockport Group. Today, The Rockport Group is home to Rockport, Cobb Hill, Aravon and Dunham, an impressive collection of men’s and women’s brands that offer our customers only the best in fit, technology and comfort.
Call us biased, but we believe we’re on a path to becoming the greatest shoe company in the world. Follow our history below and stay tuned as we usher in a new era of innovation in comfort footwear.

Elias Shoes is proud to announce that we are now the exclusive carrier of ZEYZANI Fashion in all of Riverside County. ZEYZANI makes amazing, one of a kind boots, without sacrificing all-day comfort.
Here is a little history on the company ZEYZANI:
ZEYZANI was formed with the vision of creating wearable art from the soul, to elevate any woman to the center of attention. As Rumi stated: “When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.” “This line is not about the fashion; it’s all about the woman –joyful, unique, sexy, and not dominated within the confines of any mold!” states Zeynep Yurderi, the designer and owner of ZEYZANI.
In 2007, Yurderi made the decision of pursuing her passion of designing fashions that embody the ancient designs of Central Asia where she was born and raised, and modernizing them to create tomorrow’s fashions.
Yurderi always carried through her youth a dream of designing and ZEYZANI is the culmination of that dream, “From a very young age, I’ve loved shoes! I think I was 7 when I got a pair of black suede ankle strap shoes with little heels and rainbow colored butterfly embroidery on the front, and that was it, I was in love!”
The ZEYZANI name is derived from Yurderi’s first name [Zeynep] and the fabric name suzani, hand-stitched silk by artisans in Uzbekistan, with vibrantly colored motifs of tulips, paisleys, pomegranates, grapevines and other designs from ancient Greece and the Ottoman Empire.
All ZEYZANI boots, shoes and bags are made of top quality materials and delicately hand-embroidered with bold, prismatic colors, highlighting a new wave of bohemian chic. This line marks a new era in style marked by romance, exoticism, and exclusivity with every step. Each pair is a one-of-a-kind work of wearable art.
In 2009, Yurderi made it official and hung up her business suits as a director for a pharmaceutical marketing company and established her very first retail boutique, named Z’s Treasures in downtown Haddonfield, New Jersey.
Yurderi believes that every woman is sexy, confident and unique, and all they need to do is tap into that feeling and create their own trends. “Sexiness is not a way of dressing – it’s a way of thinking” Yurderi states. “It’s how a woman carries herself through the day-to-day living of her life. And through my designs, I aim to make every woman feel as they deserve, as if they are the center of attention no matter where they go.”
“I’ve had an amazing time so far helping women increase their self-awareness and discover their inner sensualist through my boots,” shared Yurderi. “I’ve always believed that women are at their peak when they feel and look sexy. With that sexiness comes confidence, especially when it emanates from such beautiful hand-crafted pieces of art. My pieces are not about making a fashion statement…they’re simply a personality statement.”
Yurderi loves to see women’s reaction as they see, feel and experience her boots – the way the embroidery catches their eye; the way the fabric wraps around their legs; and especially how women feel once they try on a pair and take a few steps in them.
In 2011, Yurderi, due to her successes in such early age, was chosen "Super Woman of the Year" by South Jersey Magazine. Also this year, she extended the image of confidence and fun represented in the Zeyzani Collection to children. Bringing out her inner child for Zeyzani Kids, Yurderi continued the tradition by channeling all the rich colors and embroidery into a collection for children to inspire children to love fashion, style, and quality in their shoes as much as she does.
In 2012, Yurderi announced her Zeyzani Men’s Collection’s release, which has quickly become a fashion statement for Men. Her Zeyzani Men’s collection debuted at a fashion show held in Barcelona, Spain.
In 2014, Yurderi opened her ZEYZANI Flagship Store in Moorestown Mall, Moorestown, NJ and debuted her Kaftan Coat collection that was inspired by Ottoman Empire fashion for the Sultans’ wardrobe. Yurderi once again modernized this tradition to create tomorrow’s fashions. Also this year, Money-fax highlighted Yurderi as one of the best young entrepreneurs of the year with its one-on-one interview in October.
Today, ZEYZANI manufactured footwear can be found in over 100 boutiques in the Unites States and over 30 boutiques across Europe and Australia combined. ZEYZANI also offers Mediterranean jewelry, accessories, furniture and clothing to wholesale buyers and was awarded as the Best of 2015 in Wholesale & Retail Boutique Items.
ZEYZANI is and remains the original brand to use suzani fabric and traditional Turkish textiles in modernized boot and shoe designs, which many companies have tried to imitate but can never compare to the beauty, quality and personalized service that ONLY ZEYZANI can deliver. (ZEYZANI About Us)
