Discovered them as one stop shop for well made shoes for both domestic and international brands!

I have been shopping with Sherman Bros. at their Philly location for several years now and have always left satisfied. They carry lines from USA makers like Alden and Allen Edmonds and are able and willing to order if what I want is not in stock. They often have special custom shoes, such as the pair of Alden Leisure Handsewn Moccasins in cigar shell cordovan which I purchased in 2011. Their level of service is exceptional, as demonstrated by their helpfulness in repairing the tassels on a pair of loafers that are almost ten years old for me. My next shoe purchase will be with Sherman Bros.

Response from the owner - 3 years ago
Thank you, Sir. Alden is indeed a popular choice at our store, an excellently crafted set of shoes, as you know. We also like them because they tend to be of such good quality that they will last for longer than many shoes and can often be repaired to an essentially new state by our in-house cobbler. Overall, there's just something great about being able to get a pair of shoes that will still be usable a decade from now.

Rude Service. Period. My wife and I are both professionals, but being our day off, we went into Sherman Bros in casual clothes. Big mistake. When we walked in, there was only one other customer in the store. I picked up a shoe on sale for $200, and sat down to wait for the salesman to assist me. We were not greeted or acknowledged once. As I waited, about 4 men came into the store dressed in business attire. They were greeted, and when the salesman finished helping the first customer in the store, he proceeded to help, size, and fit one of the businessmen who came in after me. I was in the store for a good 20 minutes. I walked out in disgust...without trying on the pair of shoes I was very interested in buying. Poor service. I'll bring my business elsewhere.

I have a husband and two sons with large feet. My father used to shop at Sherman Brothers when he was alive. They are my go-to store for hard to find sizes and for good shoes that last forever. Heck, my husband still has the Allan Edmonds he bought for our wedding 24 years ago!We've moved from Philadelphia to Maryland: they've even shipped us shoes when we couldn't get there. The service is great, the people are friendly. I can't recommend this store enough.

Thank you so much for taking the time to contact me about the sold out product I ordered. I am very impressed with your company as I know that these things happen. Also, thank you for taking the time to attach an alternative recommendation as I am looking for a grey shoe, but it was much appreciated.
Response from the owner - 3 years ago
Absolutely, Aubree. Happy to help with recommendations, hopefully we'll find you an exact match for what you're looking for next time.

Not sure what was wrong with the guy behind the counter today, but he was incredibly rude and condescending to us. It was our first time in the store and as soon as we walked in the door it was clear we weren't welcome. No hello, nothing. The employee (owner?) insulted us when he wasn't ignoring us completely and never once were we offered any assistance. Very strange. Not sure how they do business with an attitude like this.
Response from the owner - 4 years ago
Shermanbrothers is a family business, and has a select list of employees (7 at current count). We work very closely with each-other and with the customers that come in our shops (as often as not, Jeff Sherman, the owner of shermanbrothers, is the one that fields customer calls and walk-ins!). As such, the experience you describe sounds totally out of character for any of our salespeople. Obviously we won't make sales if we instead spend our time ??insulting our customers?? while at the same time not offering them any assistance. Perhaps you were mistaken that the store you were visiting was ShermanBrothers shoes? Now, our Sansom Street/Philly location is on a city street, so it does sometimes get busy inside the store when many customers come in at the same time, so it is possible for the salespeople to get so busy that they can't get to assist you personally before you leave. If that happened to you, I do apologize, try coming in again some other time, and I'm confident you'll have a better experience, certainly a better experience than the very out of character (especially the "insulted us" part) events you describe here!

As we make our way through this cold and wet weather, we thought a winter sale on boots, shoes, insulated & waterproof footware, etc was in order! So we whipped something up, just use the coupon code ICYPLUS2014 to get 10% off any of those offerings.

http://www.shermanbrothers.com/catalog.php?TypeId=13 will lead you right to the newest boots, but if there are also links on our homepage for the other categories. And just in case, that code will work on other types of shoes as well.

On another note, we're looking towards spring now, so expect the new spring lines to start going up before the weather turns!
