So many shoes, so little time! One of the largest selections of shoes and footwear in the Southeast. Tops for Shoes is located in downtown Asheville, in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Though we are a locally-owned, single store operation, we serve a six state region due to the fact that Asheville is a vacation destination. At its current location, Tops for Shoes fills nearly half a city block. The store is owned by Bob and Ellen Carr who took over operations from Ellen’s parents in the 1970’s. Tops for Shoes offers an extensive selection of brands and sizes to fill most any customers’ needs. There are 40 salespeople with many years experience.
