Our Story

Graham Shoes is a chain of shoe stores in Ireland, founded in 1969 by a visionary entrepreneur, Tom Graham, who established the first Graham Shoes shop in Dublin at 16 Exchequer Street near Grafton Street. Tom opened a ladies’ store here followed shortly after by one of the first standalone children’s shoe stores in Ireland.

Based on his success in Dublin and, persuaded by his eldest son, Tom decided to open the second store in 1988 in Kilkenny. After that, as a result of the expansion process, the new Graham Shoes shop was opened in Carlow in 1997. The next step on the ladder was Naas in 2005, followed by Clonmel in 2006.

The company now encompasses four shops across three locations in Ireland offering mens, ladies and childrens shoes. It remains one of only a handful of family-run, independently owned shoe retailers in the country.

The secret of Graham Shoes success is the level of customer care they give to their customers.  All staff are highly trained to help their customers choose the correct shoe and provide a first-rate fitting service for children.


Besides outstanding customer service, Graham Shoes has an extensive range of shoe brands from casual to formal. Brands and styles are carefully selected by the experienced buying team at Graham Shoes to deliver exceptional quality and value to their customers. The company also works alongside its online trading partner Purpletag.ie to deliver fabulous shoes to customers all over the Republic  of Ireland. Discover here the store closest to you.
