Shoe Box At 6700 South Main St.

Highrise Tower

Recommended Posts

I was browsing the newspaper The Bellaire Texan dated May 6, 1959 and came across an article about a shoe store called Shoe Box located at 6700 South Main Street.

Anyone recall this place? It sure was a long time ago!

The shoe store was apparently housed in the Hermann Professional Building, but the address of 6700 South Main seems different than the professional building.  6700 was where the Tides II Motor Inn was located.

The original location of Shoe Box store was located at 2260 West Holcombe Blvd. in the Braeswood Center shopping center.

Bill Douglas was the owner of the Shoe Box stores.

I vaguely recall this Shoe Box, as I started seeing an ENT physician in the Hermann Professional Building in the late 1960s. But the address listed here is definitely odd - the Professional Building was constructed in 1949, and is at 6400 Fannin. Wonder if it was just a glaring mistake in the newspaper piece.
