From a small father-son company to a widely renowned footwear brand, Florsheim is an embodiment of the American Dream. Founded in 1892 in Chicago, Illinois by Milton and Sigmund Florsheim, the company put customers first. With a heritage of fine craftsmanship, Florsheim shoes were a symbol of success and respect for the workers and professionals who wore them. Featuring clean lines, high quality materials and the newest comfort technologies, Florsheim delivers shoes that can be worn day in and day out. Florsheim takes pride in supporting the needs of working men and women through durable, dependable footwear. Milton made his shoes for the entrepreneurs and self-starters that made this nation great. Today, Florsheim footwear is still perfect for workers and professionals, who need tough shoes that can handle hard work without the bulky design of safety work boots.
