To truly understand what makes Lori's Shoes so special, it helps to take a walk in founder Lori Andre's shoes. That exchange of footwear would send you across the globe—from the biggest fashion houses of New York City to a small boot manufacturer in Florence. Every year, Andre travels to markets in America's biggest cities before she hops a plane to Europe and spends two to three weeks searching the storefronts of France, Italy, and the exclusive, secret VIP country located between France and Italy.
Andre's obsession with fashion has taken Lori's Shoes from a small Lincoln Park storefront in 1983 to a modern empire that includes three stores in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. Each one contains an impressive bounty totaling thousands of women's shoes, boots, bags, and garments. The items' tags read like a who's who of the design world—Jeffrey Campbell, Frye, and Sam Edelman are just a few choice picks from the 200-plus names that fill the stores' shelves and tables. Sales staff keep a handle on it all: "its staffers are well-versed in current trends," noted Racked in placing Lori's on its list of The 38 Essential Chicago Shopping Experiences.
