Since 1892, the Florsheim family has been designing the footprints of style, comfort and a dedication to high quality workmanship. Milton Florsheim knew that the key to entrepreneurial success was good distribution. He provided the support needed to nurture several small retail ventures. Thus, this forward thinking brought Florsheim shoes to the small towns of America.
As one of the first companies to begin mass-producing shoes, Florsheim was an all-encompassing success. With the turn of the century, wholesale distribution to metropolitan areas began with full stride efforts. Present day distribution includes both national and international arenas. This keeps Florsheim at the top of the men's footwear enterprise with sweeping availability.
Today, Florsheim's focus is on research and development with the consumers needs in mind, while paving the way to a stylish and comfortable future.
