The Sole Shop Story

The Sole Shop, LLC is your store, the place where you won’t want to simply get in and get out. We are the shop where you won’t want to leave!

The main focus of our inventory is footwear. We eliminate the need to drive out of town or take a chance ordering an ill-fitting shoe online just to find quality, comfortable shoes. We carry an array of styles with everything from leather work boots to casual sandals. If you’re looking for shoes, we would love to help you find your next favorite pair!

We also carry a large assortment of music and pop culture t-shirts and popular souvenirs. Whether it be a colorful tapestry to brighten your home or a new purse for a weekend adventure, The Sole Shop has a little something for everyone.

In addition, one of the most exciting parts of our store is our selection of handmade, artisan wares. We carry tie-dye products, woodworks, jewelry, art and more made right here in Franklin County and the greater Tennessee Valley. These products all have that special touch that only the human hand can create.

We hope you will stop by and visit when you’re in our neck of the woods. We’ll have the tunes playing for you!

The Sole Shop is the brainchild of Franklin County native, Natalie Garner. She remembers the glory days of the mall, enjoying shopping without feeling rushed or overwhelmed. It is her hope to bring that feeling to Franklin County, getting to know each customer’s needs to provide superb customer service and a wide variety of quality merchandise for all ages. We want to help you find the perfect item, whether it be your next well-fitting shoe or a gift for a loved one. Your experience is The Sole Shop’s number one priority.

This is Natalie’s dad, Allen, or as we refer to him, Big AL. If it weren’t for this guy, this shop wouldn’t be a thing. From hanging slatwall and putting together display cabinets, to helping folks find a boot, he’s done it all. Unlike Nat, he remembers the glory days of Saturdays on the square and it was his stories that let her know the shop needed to be downtown.

The mini bosses. These are the ones that really call the shots. Because being a mom comes first, if one of these guys are sick or out of school for inclement weather, the shop will more than likely remain closed.

Our brands

Wherever your soul may lead, we have a shoe to take you there.
Please bear with us in the coming months. The last couple of years have been a wild ride and a great learning experience for us all. At this time, we are low on stock in some of our footwear and hope to be fully restocked soon. We are working on getting new brands to better serve your needs. In the meantime, come check out our awesome selection of “hippie stuff” and band tees.
