Warehouse Shoe Sale, now known as WSS, is a retail chain of shoe stores headquartered in Los Angeles, California, with 62 retail outlets as of August 2014.[1] Its parent company is known as Eurostar, Inc. (not related to the railway company).[2]

WSS is a family footwear retailer which primarily serves the urban and Latino communities. It was founded in 1984 by Eric Alon, who is still president of the corporation.[2] They also own and operate the online retailer ShopWSS.com.

In 1992 they sponsored a line of shoes designed and marketed by former Los Angeles gang members and intended as a jobs program and financial opportunity for former gang members.[3]
