Happy New Year!



Press Release:

Our office is now an official drop-off location for Soles4Souls!

As we always do year-round, we are collecting shoes to donate to the needy, but this month we are pleased to announce that we have partnered with Soles4Souls to help them accomplish their goal in 2011 to change 11 million lives


Please consider donating shoes for this cause! We will take any pair of new or gently used shoes. All you have to do is drop them off in our lobby, and we will do the rest. We will pack and ship them to be distributed by our team at Soles4Souls. 


Help us put smiles on the faces of 11 million needy people in 2011!

Every 30 seconds, a lower limb is lost due to diabetes-related complications. That comes to 2,880 legs and feet every day.


Keep Your Feet & Toes Healthy!


What To Look For When Shopping for Shoes:


  • align=rightAvoid shoes that have seams over areas of pain, such as a bunion.


  • Avoid shoes with heavy rubber soles that curl over the top of the toe area (such as seen on some running shoes), because they can catch on carpets and cause an accidental fall.


  • Flat shoes (with a heel height of one inch or less) are the healthiest shoes for your feet. If you must wear a high heel, keep to a heel height of two inches or less, limit their wear to three hours at a time, and take them off coming to and from an activity.


  • Laced, rather than slip-on shoes, provide a more secure fit and can better accommodate insoles, orthotic devices, and braces.


  • Look for soles that are shock absorbing and skid resistant, such as rubber, rather than smooth leather.


  • Shoes should be made of a soft material that has some give.
