FLO is the largest Turkish chain of shoe stores.
FLO Mağazacılık, founded in the early 1960s by Mr. Ahmet Ziylan on the territory of a small 50-square-meter studio in Gaziantep, began manufacturing custom-made shoes at that time. After some time of mass production of small batches of goods, and reorienting sales in the 1970s to the city of Istanbul, Mr. Ahmet Ziylan, in 1985, registered a company called “Ziylan Ayakkabi” and established the production of the first sports shoes.
Introducing Kinetix sports shoes on the market in 1989, which is currently the most popular in Turkey, FLO Mağazacılık, registered the Polaris brand in 1994, and in a short period of time reached the position of sector leader.
In 2001, FLO Mağazacılık, which entered the market under the FLO brand name, was the first to introduce the Shoe Department Store Network system in Turkey.
FLO stores present leading shoe brands such as FLO, Kinetix, Polaris, US Polo, Lumberjack, Butigo, Dockers by Gerli, Nine West and others.
Without weakening the pace of development on the way to achieve the set goal – to become one of the 10 global brands from among the enterprises of Turkey in 2023, FLO has covered almost all parts of Turkey, and has more than 100 stores abroad in 20 countries.
