Our History

Shoe Station is one of the nation’s largest independent shoe retailers, with nineteen stores in five states. The latest styles of over sixty famous name brands are sold at Shoe Station’s large, self-service, open-shelf locations. The family-owned chain was founded in 1984 in Mobile, Alabama by Terry S. Barkin. Shoe Station continues its commitment to the Southeast, employing over 500 individuals in the region. With its website, Shoe Station now serves literally millions of customers nationwide.


Shoe Station provides almost every men’s, women’s, children’s, and athletic shoe imaginable in a wide selection of sizes and widths. And all at very competitive prices.

With stores as long as a football field and nearly half as wide, Shoe Station has the space to also offer such accessories as handbags, belts, wallets, socks, and t-shirts.

As newspapers and news stations have remarked about Shoe Station, “You have to see it to believe it!.” Shoe Station proudly supports the University of South Alabama and other regional organizations. Because Shoe Station is not a franchise, charitable donations are granted by our Corporate Headquarters in Mobile, AL.


At Shoe Station, every member of the family can buy everything they need in one location. Men shop to find: boots, running shoes, tennis shoes, cross training and athletic shoes, walking shoes, clogs, dress shoes, casual shoes, sandals, wallabees, boat shoes, deck shoes, loafers, slippers, flip-flops, and t-shirts.

Women find: loafers, mules, slides, clogs, pumps, thongs, slings, oxfords, athletic shoes, evening shoes, slippers, flip flops, walking shoes, boots of all kinds, as well as wallets, scarves, purses, evening bags, clutches and socks.
