About Us

 Ben Khoudari founded CITISHOES, located on Park Avenue and 57th Street in 1993. Previously he was an Electronics Design Engineer, but he always had a love of fashion. He was able to make this dramatic career change with the help and knowledge of generations of shoe retailers in his family.

  Ben discovered that it takes six months to train a salesperson to fit shoes properly and two years to become an expert. Ben's staff has been with him almost from the beginning, so customers can be assured of expert advice and the proper fit.  For 23 years CITISHOES has offered the best quality classic shoes from around the world and enjoys an excellent reputation among major high end department stores and throughout  the industry.

  At Citishoes customers receive individual attention, ensuring proper fit, comfort and value. Their extensive inventory guarantees that the customer will find the perfect shoe to enhance their personal sense of style. Over the years they have achieved great success and have earned a loyal customer base.
