The year was 1938 when Frank Dardano opened his first shoe repair shop in downtown Denver. Seventy-plus years, four generations, and a large expansion in footwear retail later, the business Dardano’s Shoes remains strong and alive today.
Today the business is actively operated by Owner and President Dave Dardano, brother Joe Dardano, and Dave’s three children Ryan, Brittany and Dillon. Together, the Dardano family is committed to offering exceptional customer service, expert repair craftsmanship, and the highest quality of comfort footwear.
At Dardano’s you’ll find one of the largest and best selections of comfort footwear with over 60 quality brands from all over the world. We have a fantastic staff of friendly, knowledgeable, and skilled fit professionals that will take the time to assist you with whatever footwear needs you may have. We take pride in our customer service and will do what it takes to make sure that every customer is happy and confident with their purchases. Along with great footwear, we also feature a wide variety of accessories including handbags, wallets, socks, and a full selection of shoe care products.
Specializing in foot comfort, Dardano’s offers a whole department dedicated to providing customers with a solution to help minimize foot discomfort and maximize the performance of their feet. Here you will find a large selection of comfort aids and insoles, prescription shoe modifications services, and our full-time Certified Pedorthist specializing in foot evaluations and custom made orthotics.
