The Sutro Story

Born and raised in San Francisco, Sutro honors the tradition of fine handcrafted footwear that looks better with age. Clean lines, premium quality materials, and custom-made comfort features are at the core of each pair of Sutro.
For 35 years as retailers in San Francisco, Sutro’s founders interacted with their consumers. They learned what their customers were looking for in footwear: their "sweet spot" in spending, the level of comfort they expected from their shoes, and where they wanted this comfort. Most importantly, they saw that none of the brands on the market addressed all of these concerns.
Sutro's San Francisco Store

Sutro prides itself in delivering quality handcrafted products direct to the customer through online channels. By eliminating middlemen, retailers and wholesalers we are able to pass along the savings to our customers while delivering high end products.

In November 2021, OpenStore acquired Sutro Footwear to continue fulfilling the needs of metropolitan men and women.

Shoes are also fundamentally personal, which is why we offer free shipping and returns so our customers can feel the Sutro difference. We’ve taken this approach one step further by opening our own showrooms and partnering with local, esteemed stores in select cities. Experience Sutro at these fine locations.
