What Our Customers Say
“I had the pleasure of being served at your Los Altos store today. I'd gone on the advice of my 85 year old aunt who swears by this store. The service I received was exemplary! We were waited on by Kevin who took the time to listen to my litany of foot woes and never once rolled his eyes. He listened to my requirements and proceeded to guide me to a myriad of wonderful shoes to choose from. I ended up buying the MBT sandals and am head over heels in love with them. After leaving the shop, we walked around a bit and then I decided to head back and buy another pair of shoes that Kevin had fitted for me. I had really liked the Naot sandals and after finding out how accurate Kevin was with the MBT shoes, I knew he wouldn't steer me wrong with the Naot. So, now I am the proud owner of two great pairs of shoes. ” -Debra P.
“Thank you! You are the best store anywhere! If everyone were like Footwear etc. it would be a great world!” -Judith G.
“Aaron took care of me while I was there, giving comments about the different shoes I was looking at and suggesting ones that would be good for my condition (was referred by a doctor for orthotics and shoes with arch support). He helped me with more than what I originally came in about, and was attentive and communicated with me through the entire experience. Really appreciated it!!” -Jenna P.
“I love the selection of shoes for women (I'm 50 plus and care about fashion and fit.) It's the customer service that keeps me coming back to the Los Altos store. Worth every penny! (And returns are super easy too!)” -Marcia K.
“I went with a friend who needed some shoes. The gal that helped us was really friendly and helpful. The store has a machine that tells you what kind of shoe insoles you should use. I ended up buying one and I love it. They also sell really cute socks!” -Diana O.
