What We're About

Main & Taylor is a shoe store!  The name may not doesn’t clue you in but we sell women’s shoes, handbags, and accessories. We’ve been doing it since 1993, and we’re pretty darn good at it!  We have a Stuart Weitzman shop in shop, one of only two independent shoe stores in the country to earn this honor.  Donald J Pliner visits our store every year and we have a really big time with him autographing the shoes.  Lots of other parties/trunk shows happen throughout the year, and we have an awesome sale twice a year.  You’ll find your size — from 4 to 12 in quads, slims, narrows and mediums. We have casual, comfort, work, play, dressy, flat, and high heel shoes.  We have boots, sandals, oxfords, stilettos, and any other concoction that is trending.  Check out our list of designers, but it’s always changing, and we can’t let the competition know EVERYTHING we carry!  From NYC, Vegas, and Milan, we bring back the season’s cutting edge fashion and true quality products.  We have something for every budget and every taste.  We don’t sell online because….that’s just not what we do. Our two stores, located in Raleigh and Greensboro, NC, are staffed with employees who have been with us since we started as well as new faces that keep us on our toes.  Thanks for checking us out online, but we hope to see you in the stores — we love what we do!

How We're Different

Customer Love

Customer Love

We don't throw boxes at you as we scurry by. Instead we are a throwback to the day when a salesperson would sit and fit. We keep records of what you bought previously so we know the sizes and styles you own. We special order from our vendors to accommodate special needs and transfer between stores on our dime. We actually try our best to make sure you are happy. We want our customers to keep coming back and we do everything we can to make that happen. Crazy, right?

No Niche

No Niche

We don't specialize in a certain age, look, or genre. We, seriously, have something for everyone. We have large stores with large stock rooms. We have a comfort shoe for a walking vacation and an evening shoe for a glitzy wedding. We have conservative pumps and mile high fashion with everything in between. Sometimes we are a little bit country and sometimes a little bit rock-n-roll. We love vintage looks and bespoke. We are trendy and we are classic. The only thing we don't do...is sell men's shoes! They don't buy enough.

Size Matters

Size Matters

We carry narrows, slims, quads, and extended calf boots! We start at 4 and go to 12. We have a cobbler station where we stretch, pad, remove padding, waterproof, and can all but custom make a shoe. We do our best to fit your foot and then tweak it to make it perfect! We have been doing this a loooong time and we know shoes.
