About Footwear etc. San Carlos
Like the TV show Cheers, San Carlos is a place where everyone knows your name. ‘The City of Good Living’ earns its title with wonderfully kind citizens, rolling hills of dense forest and a great small-town feel. San Carlos’s main downtown strip on Laurel Street is mostly composed of independently-run restaurants and shops, as well as salons, pet stores, health food stores, banks, and coffee shops. Amongst the local businesses is our Footwear Etc. store, rubbing elbows with excellent eateries like Town and Piacese. Spot us by our replica of Rodin’s The Thinker statue out front!
Roughly the halfway point between San Francisco and San Jose, there are plenty of fun activities to keep you in San Carlos. If you’re downtown on a Thursday evening in the summer, enjoy the farmer’s market held on our street, or go to the ‘Hometown Days’ carnival in May and the ‘Art and Wine Faire’ in October.
Stop by our location and make your feet as happy as the locals! Our San Carlos location carries a wide selection of shoes for the whole family, and is known for having extended sizes of 10+ for our valued customers.

Footwear etc. San Carlos Customer Reviews
“My podiatrist advised me to go to Footwear etc. as my feet were giving me a lot of pain and I had been wearing the wrong types of shoes. John, at Footwear etc. was by far the most helpful person I have ever encountered in a store of any kind! He literally worked with me for almost two hours, bringing out shoes he thought I might like, as well as what I asked to try on. He was extremely knowledgeable about foot issues! I got a real education as to which types of shoes offer the most support, that "soft" is not always better for people with my foot problems, etc. I ended up buying a fantastic pair of boots and a pair of flats with incredible support. I have been wearing the flats all day and it feels like a massage! No more pain! John was so patient, and absolutely tireless, as well as extremely nice I would highly recommend this store to anyone and especially to anyone with foot pain and issues. Five stars!” -Clare H.
“The easiest shoe purchase I've ever made. I have specific requirements for work shoes and some problems with my feet. After trying a pair of shoes and explaining the discomfort issue the sales associate recommended another pair that alleviated the pain and were less expensive than the first. I was in and out in less than 15 minutes and that was during holiday madness. Now that's great service!” -Brad B.
“Found the best pair of fashionable walking boots on sale. Very friendly staff, quality brands and good prices.” -Wendy R.
