Neff's Shoe Store
History and News

Neff's Shoe Store has been family owned and operated since 1885. 

It all began with John Neff, an immigrant from Nuremberg, Germany.  While in Germany, John made his living as a shoe cobbler.  John made the long journey to the United States and eventually settled in Aurora, Indiana.

He was a beekeeper and a shoe cobbler, eventually opening the Neff's Shoe Store business in 1885. 

John passed in 1935, leaving his business to his sons, George and Frank.

George passed in 1955, leaving the business to Frank.

Frank ran the shoe store until 1972, leaving the store to his son Daniel Neff.  In 1973 Frank passed away.  Daniel, known by many as "the shoe man" has since owned and operated Neff's Shoe Store.
