    A Brief History

    Famous Footwear began in 1960 and was founded by Neil Moldenhauer, who financed the first location with a single $10,000 loan. Promptly calling the establishment “Neil’s Factory Shoe Store”, Moldenhauer hired his first employee 3 years later. That employee was Brian Cook who started as a stock boy and is now the President of the retail giant. It only took 10 years for the company to grow to eight locations and producing a revenue in excess of over $1 million. The company has continued to grow and acquire new locations as they push the limits of shoe retailing.
