About Us

Alamo Shoes has been providing family focused superior service since 1973.

In those years, Alamo Shoes has thrived on providing personalized service for Northsiders, Southsiders, suburbanites, people from across the country and the globe. Alamo Shoes was founded on the principle that customers will come in for attractive prices, but they will come back for the excellent service that only a custom shopping experience can provide.

Alamo Shoes is staffed with dedicated professionals, each with years of experience, not just in sales, but in proper, healthy fit as well.

A lot has changed since 1973 when Sol Price bought an ailing department store and quickly transformed Alamo Shoes into a staple of Chicago’s north side Andersonville neighborhood. What hasn’t changed in all those years is the Price family’s commitment to providing excellent personalized service in a family friendly, community focused storefront. Now, three generations of the Price family are hard at work in the store, serving three and even four generations of Alamo Shoes customers.

Men, women and children have been getting their shoes at our North Side shop for more than 30 years. We specialize in expert fit and personalized service, Alamo carries brand names for less money than you would pay at a department store. Sales staff measure feet and adjust shoes for the best possible fit. Shoes are divided first by men, women and children and then by brand, with an assortment of accessories scattered around the store.

Whatever your shoe size, you’ll find it here. The family-owned store carries narrow, medium, wide and double sizes. Any size not in stock can be special ordered. Choose from brands such as Kenneth Cole, Steve Madden, Timberland, Ecco, Born, Dansko, Rockport, and Nine West. Accessories include belts, purses and socks. The store has sales several times a year and always has a rack of shoes for $45.

Know before you go.

Shoes that haven’t been worn can be returned within 10 days with a receipt.
