About Us

Vanderloop Shoes offers six retail locations in Wisconsin to give you convenient customer service, including two stores focusing strictly on industrial footwear. We have two stores located in Little Chute (our store on Main Street carries industrial, casual and fashion footwear, our brand new store on Moasis Drive focuses strictly on industrial footwear and apparel). We also have a store in Appleton (industrial/casual/fashion footwear), Green Bay (industrial/casual/fashion footwear) and Milwaukee (the other industrial-focused store). Vanderloop Shoes also owns and operates Red Wing Shoes Green Bay which carries industrial/casual footwear from brands: Red Wing, Vasque, Irish Setter and Worx footwear. We offer seven shoemobiles to assist our industrial accounts throughout Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan.

Vanderloop Shoes sales associates are happy to provide one-on-one customer service to assist and educate their customers in finding proper footwear. Our well-trained and knowledgeable staff will take the time to correctly fit any size foot (including measuring the length, width and arch length of the foot). We pride ourselves in having the inventory to assist our customers with anywhere from a narrow to an extra-wide foot.


Vanderloop Shoes has been family owned and operated since 1945. The company generated from a small shoe repair business that was in a corner of the Little Chute General Store in downtown Little Chute. George Vanderloop Sr. bought the retail store operation in 1945 and renamed the company Vanderloop Shoes. George Vanderloop Jr. acquired the shoe business from his father in 1966. During his 22 years of ownership he introduced the industrial footwear sector of the business to Vanderloop Shoes.

Today, the company is in its third generation of ownership having acquired the business in 1988. Since then five more retail locations have been opened. Vanderloop Shoes Green Bay opened in 1990, Vanderloop Shoes Appleton opened in 2003 and Red Wing - Green Bay in 2011. Vanderloop Shoes Greendale store was opened in 2007 and recently has moved locations to a bigger store in Menomonee Falls in 2016. In 2008, Vanderloop Shoes expanded its Corporate Office and Warehouse and moved to a new location in Little Chute, Wisconsin. Just recently, in March of 2016, we have opened a new industrial-focused store next door to our Corporate Office and Warehouse on Moasis Drive.
