About Florsheim Shoes
In 1892 Florsheim Shoes started in a small factory in Chicago, Illinois. We’ve grown quite a bit since then and have gained a reputation for being at the forefront of the newest trends, while staying true to our legacy of classic styling and quality workmanship. From material selection to stitching, we pay attention to the smallest details because we know you care just as much as we do.
Milton Florsheim starts The Florsheim Shoe Company in Chicago. The first Florsheim retail store opens shortly after. As the shoes gain popularity, they are featured in magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post and The Cosmopolitan.
In an early example of brand-building years ahead of its time, the Florsheim name is added onto the pullstrap and inside of every shoe to let consumers know that they are purchasing a “genuine Florsheim.”
To honor Florsheim’s 125th anniversary, they created a limited edition collection of shoes to pay tribute to the Florsheim vintage styles that started it all. This collection honors Florsheim’s humble beginning, and celebrates how far the brand has come through the re-imagination of five classic silhouettes.
