There are a lot of reasons to visit Asheville, North Carolina. As the largest city in Western NC, it’s probably most fondly known for its rich art scene, eclectic restaurants, Art Deco buildings, natural beauty – and of course – shopping. When Tops For Shoes opened its doors back in 1952, downtown Asheville was not exactly the “hub” that it is today. The Resnikoff Family opened Tops as a general store with only a small shoe section. Overtime, the family decided to focus on shoes and today Tops is Western North Carolina’s largest full-service shoe store – and for good reason. Still a family-owned and run business, customers receive a shoe shopping experience to remember. Tops has also been an instrumental partner in revving up the downtown scene in Asheville over the last many decades. The store itself has grown immensely over the years and is now a 35,000 square foot store with over 100,000 styles to choose from. The definition of a “destination” shoe shopping experience.
Third generation owner Alex Carr prides his shoe selection on sizes and widths, as well as lots of options – from practical to trendy. Great shoes, perfect sizing – all coupled with amazing personal service that you only get from a store that’s been servicing locals and tourists for over 60 years. Earth Shoes are proud to be a part of such an amazing story. You can find Earth, Earthies and Kalso Earth Shoes gracing the shelves and tables of Tops.
A few folks from the Earth Sales and Marketing teams recently visited Tops. The Carr family are always gracious hosts and fun company. While there, Bob Carr took us on a historical walking tour of downtown Asheville where we got a deeper look into the cities culture and amenities beyond the unique galleries and charming boutiques. The only downside of our trip was that it wasn’t long enough. We saw and ate just enough to know we ALL plan on coming back to Asheville for a much longer trip in our near future. A Special thanks to the Carr Family for making our jobs so fulfilling and fun.
