Shoe Zone is a value-oriented footwear retailer trading through around 500 outlets across the UK and around 20 in Ireland. The business sells around 18 million pairs of shoes per year, with an average cost of £10 per pair. The company started when brothers Michael and Christopher Smith bought Bensonshoe in 1980. Since then, the business has expanded through acquisitions of brands such as Tyler, The Oliver Group, Shoefayre and Stead & Simpson, adding substantially to its stores portfolio.
