New Sponsor - Vogue Shoes

We are a traditional full service, family shoe store that offers the best in comfort footwear & inserts/supports for men, women, & children.

Fred Mendlovitz owned and operated Vogue Shoes as a fashion shoe store at this location for 6 years.

In 1953, Bernie and Itta Lenowitz purchased the store, and moved it to its current location, where they operated it for the next 24 years.

Rodney and Sydney Burton purchased Vogue Shoes in December of 1977, and transformed it into a low to moderately priced family shoe store with a focus on work and comfort footwear.

After 37 years of ownership, the Burtons sold the store to Seguin local, Kandice Schmidt in 2015, who is committed to maintaining the quality of products and services Vogue Shoes is known for.

The mission of Vogue shoes remains the same: to provide comfort solutions to customers as a trusted, well-respected small business in the local community and the larger shoe industry.

What We Do

Our experienced staff at Vogue Shoes measure your feet to make sure you have the best fit and the best selection of shoes that meet YOUR PARTICULAR NEEDS.

Doctors send patients to us because they know we offer superior products, and are knowledgeable as to how to help customers with their problems.
