Moore & Giles was founded in 1933, in Lynchburg, Virginia during the heart of the Great Depression by Donald Graeme Moore. Previously a purchasing agent at the Craddock-Terry Shoe Corporation, he lost that job in a massive layoff catalyzed by poor economic conditions. Moore & Giles was originally a supplier of “findings” and leather, the Company sold a broad range of components used in footwear constructions to manufacturers in Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania.
