Employee Favorites

After working with many different feet and many different styles of shoes, we tend to have our favorites! Take a look at a few of our picks and see why they’re all the rage. We love these shoes!


Lexi Oliver:

  • Type:
    • Athletic: Marina – Ice and Mint || Tsukihoshi
      • “I love the colors and the fact that this shoe is machine washable. Also, Tsukihoshi produces really durable shoes.”
    • Dress/Casual: Ruche – Pearl White || Livie & Luca
      • “The Ruche has been a favorite since I started working here 4 years ago. In the pearl white it matches everything from jeans to sweet dresses. Plus, the honeycomb sole is super durable”
    • Sandal: Hurricane 3 – Blue Denim || Teva
      • “I actually have a pair of these in the denim color and I wear them all the time when it’s warm. They’re super lightweight and dry really fast if you get them wet.”
    • Women: Warwick – Champagne || Volatile Womens
      • “Volatile never fails to release a comfortable, stylish wedge at an affordable cost. The cushioned lining on the insole allows you to stand for hours and your feet not hate you.”
  • Tip for Parents:
    • “Have your kiddos’ feet measured every 3-4 months and chose shoes that are made for your kids’ foot types. Our staff members are trained to know which shoes are right for different foot types.”

Maddie Hudson:
