About Us

Alamo Shoes has been a family-owned shoe store 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.
