No amount of bad weather can stop the party for our company! Although there was plenty of snow and ice, the Sole Provisions team had an amazing holiday party as always. The food was great, and with an open bar and plenty of spouses around as designated drivers, what could be bad? Thank you to all of our Sole Provisions customers! We understand that without your continued loyalty great times like these don’t happen!!! From our families to yours, we hope you all have a wonderful holiday season, and most importantly, a happy and healthy new year!

Warehouse Manager Jared Rueda and his exceptional team take care of shipping, receiving, and returns for Sole Provisions. Jared started working for us in 2008 shortly after our launch, so he’s been here since we were packing orders on a picnic table!. We’ve grown a lot since those days, so now with some good tunes and real packing stations (and a few dance moves in between), your orders are packed and shipped in a slightly more professional environment.
Growing up, Jared was heavily into sports and participated in many, including wrestling. His success in wrestling earned him a scholarship to Northern Illinois University, where he wrestled for two years. Starving himself for matches got old quickly, so he came back home and soon after started working with us here at Sole Provisions. In his spare time, he enjoys snowboarding, going to casinos, concerts and hanging out with friends.
HUGE NEWS!!! Sole Provisions was one of only 94 out of 5200 national retailers to be awarded with the the 2012 Bizrate Circle Of Excellence Award for Outstanding Customer Service!! For a small company like ours to be listed next to huge brands like Bath & Body Works, Bose, and Ralph Lauren is a great honor for us. Thank you so much to all our wonderful customers for speaking out and letting the world know that you appreciate our efforts!! You are the best!!!
My name is Holden Nagelberg, and I’m the founder of Sole Provisions. Things have come a long way for our company since we opened our first store in Huntington, New York back in 1997. If you told me then that within 15 years we’d be doing 95% of our business online, I would have said you were crazy! We have been very fortunate to align ourselves with some incredible brands, and combined with our never ending effort to provide the best customer service possible, we have been growing every year. THANK YOU to all of you that have loyally shopped us, tried our new brands, and have told your friends and family about us. We have the best customers anywhere!!!!
