About Us!

In 1964 Thomas R. Selbee and his wife Dolores gave life to their passion for meeting the footwear needs of their community when they founded Scioto Shoe Mart. We’re a multifaceted shoe store that has been providing the regions of Ohio and beyond with footwear that has yet to disappoint. From dress shoes to work boots, we are proud to bring footwear of all styles for all walks of life. Bring your whole family by and get outfitted by our friendly staff.

The excellence Tom and Dolores began in Portsmouth has spread to central and northern Ohio with the formation of two other Ohio locations in Chillicothe & Marion. While we strive to stay at the front of the constantly changing world of retail, our mission has remained the same since 1967; excellent, friendly service matched with an outstanding selection to meet your most specific needs. No matter what you’re looking for, you’ll find it at Scioto Shoe Mart. We are a family-owned business, serving the footwear needs of the entire family! From mom and dad’s workwear to the kid’s sneakers, we’re Ohio’s one-stop shop for shoes. 

Our desire as a corporation is to leave lasting impressions with our customers. Our friendly staff is equipped with the technical and practical knowledge of our products to point you in the direction your feet wish to go. You can be assured that we will do everything within our capabilities to see that your footwear needs are exceeded. We look forward to serving you and your family for years to come.
