About Us

Over 50 years serving the upstate!


McMahan Shoes, originally founded by John McMahan, began fitting customers in 1948. The McMahan brothers opened nine stores across the Southeast from Dallas, TX to Charlotte, NC, and Atlanta, GA. The Greenville, SC store was opened in 1958 by Milton (Milt) McMahan. George Psillas started working for Milt in 1965 and later became manager of the new McMahan Shoes in Spartenburg which opened its doors in 1968. George is the owner and trusted Pedorthist in the only McMahan Shoes store left in the country. Come see George today in Spartanburg!
