Feedback From Our Customers

  • I am so thankful for the help and service I received. Natalie put me in some awesome shoes that fit properly and really help my health issues. I suffer from lower back problems and neuropathy in my left leg. These are the best shoes I've ever had!
  • Never had people more knowledgeable sell me shoes before. Usually its, "Yes, this is a shoe and we have them." I went in for an insert but learned my shoe was just the wrong size. Got some new ones and the feel great. Thanks for the kicks. I'll be back when I need new ones.
  • I'm so happy with my shoes and the service. I was totally wearing the wrong size shoe. I will be going back for another pair as soon as they come in. Thanks so much for your help and fun sense of humor.
  • Can't say enough about how helpful Carolyn and Brent have been in helping me stay in shoes that fit my running needs. And the Sat. morning runs with Marc and Brent are superb!
  • Thanks Carolyn and the rest of The Foot Store staff for all of your help in making sure I had the proper footwear. You and your staff could not have been more pleasant to deal with and I intend on sharing my experience with all of my running club friends!
