The first Jean-Paul Fortin store opened its doors in Quebec City in 1964. Launched by Mr. Paul Fortin, the store acquired its name through a clever combination of its owner's name and the street on which it was located, St-Jean Street.
Jean-Paul Fortin distinguished itself from other shoe retailers from the very beginning. Specialized in high-end footwear for women, the store offered a unique collection of exclusive shoes that rapidly established it as a leader in the footwear industry.
Today, the majority of our locations also offer a wide selection of men's footwear and accessories. With several physical stores in Montreal and Quebec City, the company also caters to a growing demand across Canada via our online store.
Through the diversity of our products and our brands, as well as our dedication to providing quality in everything we do, Jean-Paul Fortin remains a leader in the footwear industry. With over 50 years of experience behind us, we look forward to the many more to come.
