Tips for naming a Shoe Brand Business

The shoe industry is very competitive. If you’re making your first steps in the realm, you have to build a brand that’s outstanding. Choosing the right name is one of the biggest branding essentials. No matter what kind of shoes you make or sell, quality will have to be one of the primary focal points. Here are a few other essentials to concentrate on when thinking about the right name for your business.

  1. Give your brand personality: how can you make your shoes different? By giving the brand personality. The name should tell the potential buyer something about your brand. Are you making comfortable shoes for mountain and outdoor enthusiasts? Are you making high fashion items for the urban diva who wants to stand out every single time? Pick a phrase that hints at a specific emotion, a character trait or another strength making your products unique.
  2. Stay away from the clichés: just like all other industries, the shoe field has its fair share of clichés. These sound comfortable, familiar… and boring. A good name surprises and sounds unusual. It makes the potential buyer stop in their tracks and go in your shop. To get that result, you have to stay away from industry clichés like comfort, fine leather, Italian, fashion, etc.
  3. Understand what your clients strive for: a pair of comfortable shoes is much more than a pair of comfortable shoes. It gives the wearer freedom. It lets them walk for hours at a time without experiencing discomfort. It can empower, excite and help promote an active lifestyle. When naming your business, don’t focus on the product. Focus on the goal that your client wants to accomplish when buying a pair of shoes. This way, you can provoke a strong emotional response from your prospects.

In essence, you have to think outside the box. While simple and typical can work sometimes (acronyms, using foreign words to make the name sound more sophisticated), you will have to dig deeper if you really want a shoe brand name that is meaningful and impactful.

Shoe Brand Business name analysis

If you’re still stuck on creating some name ideas, here’s a breakdown of some of the top brands and businesses in the industry. Here I’ll explain why the name works for that company, and how the name appeals to customers. What’s more, a few more team members from BizNameWiz have added their name ideas below aswell!


This is as creative as it gets. Back in 1958, the company creator’s wife called his first pair of boots “ugly.” That stuck and instead of being considered an insult, the word Ugg turned into the actual brand. It is so recognizable today that specific types of boots are called Uggs today.


This is an excellent example of a short, impactful name that tells the reader exactly what they’re going to get from the brand. Timberland means “land covered in trees.” For many decades, Timberland shoes have been a choice of preference for those interested in sturdy shoes for outdoor activities.

Hush Puppies

The story here is a bit more convoluted but it has resulted in one of the most recognizable shoe brands. Hush puppies is a phrase that refers to deep fried fish and other kinds of fritters. These treats were sometimes used by farmers to calm down barking dogs. The term “barking dogs” was also used as a euphemism for tired feet. Intrigued by the linguistic connections, a salesperson representing the shoe brand suggested Hush Puppies as a company name and it has stuck ever since.
