Judy Behrendt, West Virginia


 I received my brown boots about a week ago. Tried them on and was very pleased with all of the work that you have done on them to refurbish the inside and replace the soles and heels. 


I appreciated you helping me out with these shoes and look forward to working with you in the future when I need new ones.

Although I live in Georgia, I shop at Pittsburgh's

Best-Made Shoes! Why?


Because it's all in the fit and style when you have challenging feet that must take you to work, play and special events. Thank you for using your expertise and knowledge to properly measure my feet and make recommendations.


Each time I've gotten well- fitting custom orthotics and shoes that give my feet support during exercise, shopping, keeping house and everything else I do. Thank you for repeated years of service.

Gloria Dadowski, Pittsburgh

This is my 3rd year of purchasing shoes with custom orthotics.


I love the comfort that they give my feet. It's a pleasure to walk around anywhere without any pain.


I'm so glad that they are located in the city. Kudos to Best-Made Shoes.
