Welcome to Stitchdown Premium

The chat community and membership program for shoe lovers that pays for itself

Everything a Stitchdown Premium membership scores you

Discounts, discounts, discounts

We collaborate with brands you love to offer exclusive, meaningful, long-running discounts—including 10% off Grant Stone, Parkhurst, and Sagara Bootmaker for a year, with more to come. No more need to make snap decisions for 24 hour flash sales.

Giveaways from top makers

You deserve new shoes. And some high-end socks. Perhaps a fresh quiver of laces, too? Every week Premium members can enter giveaways—for fantastic products you'll actually want from brands like White's Boots, Grant Stone, Meermin, Sperry Handcrafted in Maine, Boardrooom Socks, Helm, Comfy Socks, Armstrong's All Natural—and plenty more on the way.

A thriving live chat community

Join other members on a dedicated Discord chat server 24/7 to exchange knowledge—from fit and sizing, to leathers and construction—and talk anything else shoes.

Direct funding of Stitchdown content

Stitchdown is a labor of love—but even the most loving labor isn't free. Your contribution directly supports the creation of the interviews, features, profiles, the Shoecast, and more that YOU get a ton of value out of.

Access to exclusive collaborations

We work with some of the most revered brands in the entire shoe world—from Alden to John Lofgren to Onderhoud Handmade—to create one-of-a-kind makeups.

Frequently asked questions

We’ll announce each giveaway through various channels: the dedicated Stitchdown Premium newsletter, the Stitchdown Premium Instagram account, and the Stitchdown Premium Discord server. 

From there, you just have to signal that you’re interested in the giveaway by following the instructions on each. They’ll be simple, we promise. 

If there are any restrictions to the giveaway—say, certain size range limitations, or where in the world a certain product can be shipped to—that will be noted in all communications about the giveaway. 

Very simply: we’ll announce a discount through all of the Stitchdown Premium channels, along with a special proprietary code that you can use to score your discount on any orders placed through the given brand or retailer in the set window. 

We just ask that all Stitchdown Premium members keep those codes to themselves—and actually, sharing codes outside the Stitchdown Premium community can be cause for membership revocation. We want Stitchdown Premium members to reap the benefits of their membership—not someone who hasn’t supported Stitchdown, as you have. 

Our live chat is hosted on a platform called Discord, which was selected after testing literally dozens of solutions—we feel like it best supports what we’re looking to develop with the SDP community. 

Which is, to be more specific: deeply engaged conversation about quality footwear, discussions about what people love and what they’d love to see more of, help with sizing and lasts and leathers and everything else that can help arm you to make the right decision for your next purchase. 

And of course all subscriber benefits will be announced through the Discord community, in addition to the subscribers-only Instagram feed and newsletter. 

If you purchased the wrong membership by accident, reach out to membership@stitchdown.com and we’ll get everything squared away. Otherwise, memberships are not refundable—but you can rest assured in the knowledge that all contributions at any level go directly to supporting Stitchdown’s content and operations. And that means a TON to us over here.

To make things easier all around, all memberships renew automatically every month. You can unsubscribe from your membership at any time, as long as you do so 24 hours before the renewal date. However, the full charge for your term will remain, and we are unable to pro-rate memberships that a member choses to end early.

Probably! But honestly, the real answer is: all support is essential to keeping Stitchdown going. If you just can’t make the $5/month work to become a Premium member, or the benefits don’t appeal to you for whatever reason, that’s completely fine—and Stitchdown’s content is there for you to enjoy and learn from every day. But we would greatly, GREATLY appreciate if you considered a $2/month donation to support its ongoing creation. 

Or alternately, you can just join at any time, so there’s no reason to spend the rest of your life wondering how things could have been.
