What’s the best way to walk into the Oval Office? In a pair of Allen Edmonds Shoes!

Ronald Reagan, George HW Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush all purchased and wore the Belguim, Wisconsin brand’s of shoes for the occasion of their Presidential Inaugurations – why are these penny-loafers a better testament to American manufacturing and the strengths of our immigrant history than any other pair?

Join AFF-Milwaukee for our latest “How I Built My Business” event with John Stollenwerk of Allen Edmond Shoes. Stollenwerk’s commitment to the workforce in Wisconsin and his fanatical support for the perfect style, perfect fit and the overnight availability changed the way people thought about manufacturing and distribution long before Zappos or Amazon were a household name.

This is a great opportunity to network with entrepreneurs and liberty-minded young professionals in the Milwaukee area. Complimentary appetizers will be provided, as well as a free drink for those who RSVP in advance.
