About Us

Since 1952, Walkwell Shoes has been earning the respect of customers and doctors by professionally fitting shoes and helping to manage the nuances of feet needing more specialized care and attention.

Comfort First

“Our foot changes over the years, so the shoe that fit when we were 20 may not be the right size 10 or 15 years later,”  Peter Rooney, owner and Certified Pedorthist says. According to Peter, 70 percent of his first time customers come in wearing the wrong size shoe.

That’s why, at Walkwell Shoes, sales personnel measure every customer every time. A record of shoe sizes is retained in the store’s files.

Fashion & Comfort don’t have to be enemies

Today Walkwell Shoes offer the perfect combination of fit and fashion. We carry the world’s most comfortable brands for men & women. We promise to fit your feet properly in something which accommodates your lifestyle and fashion needs. New technology has enabled footwear to be lighter, more flexible, and more shock absorbent, but the best looking and the best-made shoes will not be comfortable unless they are properly fitted.

Avoiding Foot Problems

Our mission is to help people from the foot up through increasing awareness of proper fit and good footwear in maintaining overall good health. We have Certified Pedorthists (foot pharmacists) on the floor at all times. Our staff works with many healthcare professionals in the area, and is available to present workshops and attend health fairs. Walkwell shoe experts are particularly experienced at serving the special foot needs of seniors, as well as men and women of all ages.
