About Emerhoff’s Footwear

Helping Ames, Iowa with dedicated service in an environment
that’s both trustworthy and friendly

In 1941, Emerhoff Peterson wanted to offer the Ames community a full service family shoe store dedicated to customer service and helping people find the right style for them. That year, in a small store front in Downtown Ames, he opened Emerhoff’s Footwear. Over what has now been 75 years, the faces, and Peterson generations have changed, but the original mission has stayed the same.  Offer the customers of Emerhoff’s Footwear a friendly, full service Men’s and Women’s shoe store dedicated to helping customers with their footwear needs.

Emerhoff’s offers a wide variety of sizes and widths for both genders. We carry S to W on our Women’s side and M to WW on our Men’s side. In addition to our extended widths, we also offer up to size 11 in women’s shoes and size 13 in our men’s selection. Along with our friendly and knowledgeable staff, Mark and Mike Peterson, 3rd and 4th generations, invite you to come in and see what a shoe store should be. Proper fit, great selection and the shoes that you’ll want to wear over and over again!
