Yellow Shoes was established on values that are at the heart of our commitment to our customers.
Back in 1916, the vision of Samuel Avrith, our founder, was to offer quality shoes at affordable prices. Born into a large family, he knew how difficult it could be to provide for the whole family and made it his mission to make fashion more accessible to Quebecers.
Family is at the heart of Yellow, deeply ingrained in our history and mission. With four generations of the Avrith family within our company, every employee is like a new family member. Our core mission is to offer affordable footwear to Quebec families, making 'family' more than just a corporate buzzword – it's our essence.
Yellow constantly strives for improvement. We enhance our product selection by sourcing innovative materials at competitive prices, such as cleated soles for winter footwear. Behind the scenes, we continually refine our processes to provide the best customer experience.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Established in Quebec since 1916, Yellow recognizes its potential to impact society. Through our Yellow Cares program, we've donated food, thousands of shoes, and accessories to provincial charities. Our Eco collection, made from recycled or vegan materials, also reflects our commitment to positive change, one step at a time.

THE HEAD OFFICE
Several departments are located in the head office: human resources, finance, customer service, but also buying, marketing, logistics, IT support, distribution & allocations and the warehouse. We have more than 70 employees who work together to move the company forward.
More than 30 employees work in the warehouse every day to prepare and ship customer orders as soon as possible, as well as to replenish store inventory. Without their support, customers would not be able to find the pair of their dreams in stores or online.
