We put the world at your feet!
Shoe Mill operates fine footwear retail stores specializing in quality shoes and accessories. A Pacific Northwest company which opened for business in October 1978 has been operating now for over 30 years. The result of the vision of a hard working and dedicated husband/wife team, it has grown from a single store into the major independently owned shoe retailer in the region.
Our unique merchandise mix is the envy of the industry, as we have combined many of the most sought after brands with exclusive products gleaned from exceptional manufacturers worldwide. We have illustrated this concept in our corporate logo which includes the tag line, "We put the world at your feet".
Popular and sometimes unique merchandise is not our sole aim. As a company who genuinely cares for the foot health of our valued clientele, we maintain the long-standing purpose to fit our customers properly.
Our sterling reputation has made us the single largest doctor referral shoe resource in the Greater Portland/Salem Metropolitan area. We are perceived by the medical profession as more than just a shoe store. We truly care about foot health.
This commitment to proper fit, combined with an interest in spreading this concept to other merchants, has resulted in company President Ed Habre being elected to the office of Chairman of the National Shoe Retailers Association (NSRA). When Ed was chairman of the NSRA Education Committee, he served as official liaison to the "When The Shoe Fits" educational program. Joining with the Pedorthic Footwear Association and the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society this educational seminar teaches the art of proper shoe fitting. The program is presented nationwide to shoe retailers.
Our commitment to quality footwear has resulted in our being named as National Retailer of the Year by several internationally known shoe manufacturers. More importantly, we want to earn the distinction of being YOUR shoe retailer of the year, every year.
