Early Years

    For 45 years Paul Carroll have established themselves as one of Australia’s leading footwear businesses, providing a wide range of stylish comfortable shoes for both men and women locally and Australia wide. Mr Paul Carroll came from humble beginnings, arriving in Perth from Dublin 56 years ago. Surprisingly the only business Mr Carroll had no desire to go into was the shoe business due to the six generations of shoe makers before him.

    However, once he landed a job at Ten Gems shoe factory he never looked back, leaving as director of the factory 11 years later. Mr Carroll opened a shoe repair shop in Tuart Hill in 1973 and by the late 80’s – early 90’s Paul Carroll For Wide Fitting Footwear had expanded to multiple locations across Perth including a Fremantle and Perth city store. Now Managing Director and Mr Carroll’s son, John Carroll began his journey within the business in 1993 as the Fremantle stores’ manager. Despite not being of major interest to John in the beginning, he soon fell in love with the business and has played a major role in taking Paul Carroll Shoes to new heights.

    The next big step

    In 2001, Paul Carroll Shoes expanded into manufacturing fashionable corrective footwear with their own brand, Klouds and now wholesale to over 250 businesses across Australia with Arcopedico, Mephisto and their own designs of Klouds and Silver Linings shoes. Now simply named Paul Carroll, the business is more family orientated than ever with John’s wife and sister heading the Buying and Marketing teams, while Mr Carroll’s nephew and his wife heads the HR and Operations department. In fact, it’s hard to find someone within the many facets of the business who isn’t connected to the family in some way!

    While Paul Carroll continues to grow and develop in order to give our customers the best range and quality products possible, we still remain loyal to our heritage and as a proud Australian-owned-and-operated business. We strive to give our customers “footwear with a difference” in every aspect of our business and are grateful for the loyalty our customers have shown over the past 45 years.
