Since 1982, Alan's has sold quality shoes to both Tucsonans and international visitors. Starting as a small business, it has now grown to two spacious stores covering both the east and the west side of town. All shelves feature the big international brand names in shoe design such as Rocco, Mephisto, Rockport and Birkenstock. Alan's is famous for its excellent customer service, which is one reason to prefer it to the big retailers.
