Florsheim is one of the oldest and most well known shoe companies in the country. Founded in 1892 in Chicago, every pair of Florsheim shoes were lovingly handmade by Milton Florsheim and his father. Slowly but surely their brand became recognized as making some of the best shoes on the market. For decades it was the go to shoe for businessmen and blue collar workers alike, and by 1966 a pair of Florsheim shoes was sold every four seconds. Florsheim today is still owned by members of the Florsheim family, and they're proud to carry on the timeless quality and styling of the brand, while also introducing and incorporating modern styling's and materials.
