In 1892, Milton Florsheim began producing shoes in a small factory located in Chicago, Illinois.
 From the very beginning, Florsheim shoes were a remarkable combination of style, comfort and high quality workmanship. For Milton, his customers were the most important aspect of his business—entrepreneurs and self-starters in big cities and small towns across a fast growing nation. Though the specific shoes may change from season to season and year to year, all Florsheim shoes are made with our heritage in mind.
