Althea began providing orthotics in a medical setting over 20 year ago. She often saw people arrive frustrated because they were not able to find the shoes they needed to work with the orthotic that had been prescribed for their unique foot issue.
Althea quickly saw that the retail environment wasn't equipped to help people who were dealing with real foot pain and day-to-day challenges. She realized the retail shoe market was generally there to serve the masses with production line shoes and footwear products.
From experience, Althea knows nearly every one has variations in their feet; even if they aren't dealing with a major medical issue. She also understands how those foot variations can cause real problems and pain if not addressed in an appropriate way.
Althea decided she would open a shoe store to provide the perfect balance between the retail and medical component of foot care; effectively addressing each customer's unique needs and lifestyle. In the year 2000, Althea invested her time, energy and passion to this endeavor.
Fourteen years later, Althea now works with 14 dedicated and passionate employees including eight certified Pedorthist.
