What is Schuh?
Schuh, pronounced as “shoe”, is a UK-based footwear retailer with around 118 shops in the UK and Ireland. The company is mainly a stockist that sells over 80 brands which include Vans, Converse, Nike, UGC, Adidas as well as its own Shuch label. Their customers are mostly people on their late teens or early twenties. According to Schuh, they are now a shoe shop but fashion store that sold shoes.
The company opened its first shop in 1981 on Edinburgh’s North Bridge Arcade when its founder Sander Alexander observed that the place lack a fashionable footwear retailer outside London. Today, the Edinburgh store still has the original ambiance of the organised chaos that Schuh is famous for. During the 90s decade, Schuh adapted to the market turning from looks and styles to brands by introducing to their stores popular brands such as CAT, Kickers, Converse, Vans and Dr. Martens. In 1997, the company launched its own magazine that promotes footwear brands like never before.
When the millennium came, retailers took focus on launching websites and Schuh was quick to go online and launched a transactional website before almost all other retailers. Their website evolved through the years as their customers adapt more comfortably to online shopping. This development coincided with their store growth as well as Schuh stores can be found in more or less every major city in the UK and Ireland by the end of the decade.
Schuh is a German name that was basically known only in the UK and Ireland, but all of that changes when they launched their first German store in 2015.
