Welcome to Charles Shoes

Charles Shoes is a family owned and operated comfort shoe store in the heart of downtown San Luis Obispo, CA. We've proudly served our community since 1952 and are excited to continue to offer the best customer service and widest selection of shoes in town. We realize that not everyone has the same need when it comes to footwear so keeping a wide variety of sizes, styles, and support is important to us. We offer many styles and brands and sizes that are hard to find locally. We employ an experienced shoe sales force that will assist you not only in style selection, but fitting you comfortably in a pair of shoes that meets all of your needs.
