History

O&B Shoes was founded by Leo H. Olson and Herbert Bergeson in 1933. Their original store was located on 209 South Broadway where they carried a large selection of Buster Brown Shoes and Brownbilt exclusively. In 1949, O&B Shoes moved to 217 South Broadway and remained in this location until 1976 when a fire in a neighboring M.V. Lawler building forced them to move to 100 First Ave SW where they remained until the expansion of their current location of 19 First Avenue building in 2015.
