Happy birthday, John David Shoes. The perennial silver winner earns the gold in its 25th year. "I believe the key to success is a formula of several things,” says owner John Ingram. “The staff, along with a consistently proven product and a faithful, loyal clientele.

"In order to put my name on this brand I had to have the utmost confidence in the brand,” Ingram says. “Which I did, the second I saw them."
