Heritage

ASKARIDIS SHOES had its beginnings as a family business in 1932 when it was involved in all facets of shoe production in Thessaloniki. 

The first storefront in Thessaloniki opened its doors in 1953 on Solomou Street.  Less than a decade later, the iconic shop “Special” began welcoming customers at its location on Venizelou Street.  Throughout the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, AKSARIDIS SHOES at “Special” brought the latest fashions in footwear from the catwalks of Europe to the elegant ladies of Thessaloniki. 

Downtown Thessaloniki saw the next generation of ASKARIDIS SHOES evolve; in 1982, a new storefront opened on Agias Theodoras and later Tsimiski Street.  AKSARIDIS SHOES carefully cultivated its relationships with designers throughout Europe and the United States to continue in the tradition of bringing designer trends to you, its valued customers.   

Today, AKSARIDIS SHOES follows in the ‘footsteps’ of the family business and continues to bring the most up -to- date trends to the stylish and well-heeled operating storefronts in Thessaloniki, Serres and Corfu – and now online!    

Although there have been countless changes in styles, fashions, preferences, and even shopping methods since its beginning as a family business in the shoe industry almost 90 years ago, the name ASKARIDIS continues to represent quality and fashion. 

We thank our loyal customers who have been with us through the years and look forward to creating lasting relationships with our new customers.  We look forward to serving you!
