The first pairs of Florsheim® shoes made by Milton were a remarkable combination of style, comfort and high-quality workmanship. Early on, Milton Florsheim realized that a high-quality product was a factor necessary for success. Over a hundred years later, and that same attention to detail, comfort and quality still goes into every pair of Florsheim men’s shoes.
Florsheim sees classic styles as relevant today as when they first introduced them, yet they don’t hesitate to see new looks. Most importantly, they don’t hesitate to use new technologies and manufacturing processes that keep the Florsheim brand a current and relevant choice for men’s shoes.
