Our Mission Statement

At Family Footwear Center we take the word "fit" very seriously. We don't sell you shoes, we fit you for the right shoes, and that is what sets us apart. Our mission is not to sell you footwear, but to make sure that what you buy fits you properly.

Your feet change over time due to many factors including; weight fluctuations, injuries and age. We believe in the science and technology that can help address your specific foot's needs. Our friendly and knowledgable staff is Professionally Trained to measure each foot and calculate your proper shoe size. This simple procedure utilizes a Brannock Device, which measures the length and width of your foot, and most importantly, takes into account your arch length.

We offer many styles of comfort footwear and we specialize in carrying wide widths and extended sizes. With our everyday low prices and our great selection of brands and styles, you're sure to find exactly what you need. We look forward to seeing you and serving your footwear needs at one of our retail locations.
