The creation of a global shoe empire
Young Aldo Bensadoun was the son of a shoe merchant and grandson of a cobbler, so knowledge of footwear is in his genes. His dream to start his own company became a reality when he opened up a small concession in 1978, within a fashion retail store in Montreal, Canada. The brand soon grew out of concessions and into their own stores by the late 80s, expanding across Canada and quickly beginning to dominate the globe with their expertly crafted footwear. By the company's 40th anniversary in 2012, the ALDO group was in over 3000 stores in over 100 countries. Their continued success is due, in no small part, to their quick turnaround of new products. This brand can design, produce and deliver new pieces within a matter of weeks, ensuring they stay on top of trends and remain a real challenge their competitors. Impressively, they became climate-neutral in 2018 and are the only footwear brand to achieve this important accolade to date. This strong set of values and social responsibility have remained a high priority for Bensadoun from the outset, and he remains the owner of the company to this day.
