Shoes, Shoes, Shoes and More Shoes. What a great visit to Burger Shoes. Maria and Carmen were so much fun. You can tell why this business has been around for over 60 years. The business is built on customer service, which has created many loyal customers and friendships.

“Honesty, Quality Shoes and Excellent Customer Service. It's not just about the shoes for's about connecting with the people in our community.”

Over a half century ago, a young man, Ludwig Burger, came to America and had the privilege of opening his own shoe business after a short time. He began with shoe repair, a craft he learned as a young teen in Zalog, Slovenia. Mr. Burger soon gained the trust of his patrons through honesty and hard work. He developed many loyal customers and friendships throughout the years, making his business a staple in this community. Maria, Ludwig's only child, grew up in the shoe store watching her father resole boots and make favorite footwear look new again. By the age of 13, she was working the sales floor. Her decision to carry on with the family business was an easy one, keeping her father's simple vision that he taught her so many years ago: Honesty, Quality Shoes, and Excellent Customer Service.
