Our team can professionally measure your feet to find you the best fit for diabetic footwear, custom orthotics, or hard to fit feet. We strive to match you with the most comfortable shoe you will ever wear. We are able to fill doctors’ prescriptions to help alleviate pressure points or create custom fitted inserts for shoes. For your ongoing care, we perform all repairs on site so that we can take care of normal wear and tear, do any modifications or refitting, and get your shoes back to you as soon as possible.

A properly fitted shoe can have a profound impact on your daily routine. It can change your posture and relieve pain in your feet, legs, and back. We specialize in finding the right fit for you to ease your pain or increase your comfort. If you have a difficult time finding shoes that fit properly, we offer more options for a better fit. Our fitted shoes work for individuals who need narrow to extra wide shoes, custom fitted inserts for shoes, or have high arches to particularly flat feet. No matter what difficulty you have when looking for the perfect fit, stop by today to talk to our staff about the right footwear for you.
