A little bit about Wuerth's Shoes

Wuerth’s Shoes is a fourth generation family owned and operated business since 1938.

In 1938 ...

This idea began in the late 30’s and has adapted from shoemaking and repairs by Alfred Wuerth. He and his wife Lucilla owned and operated Wuerth’s Shoes in its original location in Exeter Ontario from 1938 – 1964
