Famous Footwear - Since 1960
Famous Footwear was founded in 1960 in Madison, Wisconsin by Neil Moldenhauer, and was originally known as Neil's Factory Outlet Shoes. The company offered brand name shoes for less and was one of the first to pioneer this concept. Needless to say, it was successful and the company began to expand. In 1965, the stores started to gradually change their name to Famous Footwear. By 1980, there were 36 locations in nine states, and the company was bought by the Brown Shoe Company. This acquisition helped expand the company to other areas of the United States, and the chain grew further through other acquisitions and store openings. Today, Famous Footwear has over 1,050 locations across the U.S. mostly located in malls and strip centers, with an annual revenue of 1.5 billion dollars.
