About Shoe Warehouse

At Shoe Warehouse, we believe style shouldn’t demand a huge investment of time or money. Style should be comfortable, accessible and easy to achieve. That’s why our footwear feels as good as it looks, effortlessly taking you from the boardroom to the restaurant, to the park with your family. We strive to ensure your shopping experience is easy on your wallet, and your  schedule, by delivering fashion and value to everyone in your household.

There are now more than 50 Shoe Warehouse locations across Canada.
