Formerly Brown Shoe Company, we rebranded to Caleres in 2015. Caleres comes from the Latin word calere – meaning to glow with passion or intensity. The word speaks to a culture that has propelled us through 139 years of success.
With persistent determination, we have preserved the founding spirit that launched our company in 1878: a ferocity for crafting the perfect fit. Today, our portfolio focuses on contemporary fashion, healthy living and family. And every shoe we create benefits from the knowledge and skills gained over a century of design and craftsmanship. Looking ahead, we will continue to build a preeminent company recognized the world over for its tenacity and creativity in creating the perfect fit.
Our mission is to inspire people to feel good … feet first. Five fundamental values guide us toward that end:
Women’s Forum of New York recognition for board diversity
American Apparel and Footwear Association Company of the Year
Footwear News Hall of Fame
Corporate Champion – 20% Women on Board (currently at 40%)
Number 4 Footwear News Most Influential List
100th Anniversary on NYSE
Footwear News Person of the Year
Business Visionary Award from Accessories Council
