What to Expect

Comfort Shoe Specialists is a full service shoe store.  We have our own on-site custom orthotic and shoe modification laboratory.  When you arrive please sign in.  One of our Certified Pedorthists or Specialists will assist you.  We recommend calling to schedule an appointment at 314-822-3300.  Since we work with appointments first and walk-ins are seen first come, first served around our appointments, an appointment saves your time.

We recommend bringing your most comfortable shoes, as they “talk” to us, as well as all modalities used (orthotics, toe spacers, etc.).  Most importantly, bring the socks and/or stockings that you wish to wear.  Socks make a difference and we have high technology socks available.

Our Certified Pedorthists and Specialists do an evaluation/assessment gives you the opportunity to explain your concerns/pain issues you might be having, then we assess your biomechanics so we have the information to explain what your best options are.  We then inform and explain what your biomechanical deficiencies and assets may be and what we can do.  If footwear is needed, we will determine your proper shoe size which varies by brand and style.  We will discuss your foot issues then present information about your available specific solutions. We recommend that you plan about an hour of time to undergo your full evaluation/assessment.  This evaluation and assessment is valued at $30/hour, and is waived with purchases, however we do have people just want an assessment.

We have 1,000’s of shoes and solutions available on-sight and often times can have you up and “running” the same day.  In some cases, we will need to fabricate custom orthotics made to molds of your feet for which a prescription is needed. You may also require therapeutic footwear, and/or potentially make alterations on your footwear.  Some may be able to be done the same day and some may need our Orthopedic Shoe Technician a few days to complete.  In these cases, we’ll give you an estimated time of delivery of your new foot solutions and call you when they are complete.

Your experience at Comfort Shoe Specialists will be like no other shoe shopping experience you’ve ever had.  It will change the way you look at your shoe needs for the rest of your life.
