Footwear etc. Palo Alto Customer Reviews
“For many years I bought my shoes at nearby N, famous for its shoe department. Not any more. This store has a far better selection, has salespeople who are incredibly patient and knowledgeable, and has a reasonable return policy. Their shoes are not cheap, but they aren't astronomically priced either. I feel I've received very good value in the two years I've been coming here.” -Nancy W.
