Our Shoe Store
Quality shoes and classic styling with updates are what Coffin Shoe Co. prescribes for heels, toes, arches and ankles.
For more than 90 years, many of Coffin’s customers have drifted into discount shoes or poorly fitted self-service footwear, only to come running back when their feet start hurting.
With some 50,000 shoes in stock, Coffin’s is almost certain to have a style and size that fit the bill. In fact, few other stores in Knoxville carry the variety of shoe sizes stocked by Coffin’s, which has shoes in extra-small and large sizes for men and women, as well as extra-narrow and wide widths.
Coffin’s has long sold many of the top traditional American shoes, including Trotters, Florsheim, SAS, Sebago, Keds, Hush Puppies, Merrell, New Balance and Ros Hommerson, the high-quality Italian shoes that are priced far less than designer shoes. In recent years, Coffin’s has added many more top European shoe brands, such as Rieker and Mephisto, Ecco and Clarks, just to name a few.
The store also stocks top-quality water shoes, better hiking boots, running and walking shoes.
Coffin’s is a full-service store, with the staff and expertise to make sure every customer gets a shoe that fits correctly. Many Coffin’s customers have shopped at the store for life, some for several generations. In addition to shoes, Coffin’s is a regular stop for customers seeking handbags and shoe polishes and creams, including Kiwi in all the basic and some hard-to-find colors. Coffin’s also has a good supply of top-quality sole inserts and even the best quality Thorlo socks, along with other brands.
