My review is specifically about the ski-boot fitting services that are provided at Foot Dynamics. I grew up skiing and... over the past 10 years have had a TERRIBLE time getting boots to fit pain free. I tried multiple boots from multiple companies and stores. Nothing seemed to help. Custom insoles, custom Liners, stretching the plastic, etc. with no relief. I was so frustrated and miserable I quit for a few years out of disgust. I was recommended to visit 'the Jeffs' at Foot Dynamics to have an assessment and fitting done. I cannot say enough nice things about my experience with them. My initial appointment was an assessment where they measured my feet, observed them in my boots without liners and asked me a number of questions about what hurt. They recommended a pair of hard cork insoles, similar to a Birkenstock foot bed. I was hesitant initially, as I already had some 'custom' insoles, however, Jeff Jacobs explained what was different between the ones I had (too flimsy) and the ones he was recommended (very sturdy). About a week later, I picked up the insoles and went skiing. The difference was night and day. My feet no longer hurt and I can enjoy skiing just as everyone else does. I cannot recommend the services that Foot Dynamics offer enough. If you've struggled with getting ski boots to fit, do yourself a favor and go to Foot Dynamics. They are true experts and have passion for getting people into boots that are comfortable. I wish I had gone to them first instead of wasting time and money elsewhere.read more

Plantar fasciitis! I have not been able to "go for a walk" in years because the pain during and especially after was... unbearable. I've gained so much weight I hardly recognize myself. When I received my sneakers and custom insoles I decided to take my dog for a 1 mile walk and came home 2 miles later. The next day 3 miles and we'll see where we end up by the time the weather invites us to the foot hills and mountains. I'll be back in for trail shoes then. I wish I had known sooner what a difference this would make in my life.read more

I bought my husband a pair of Birkenstocks from the mall for his birthday one year that turned out to be WAY too big. ... After returning them and being told by the person behind the counter they don't order "special sizes" we went in search of a shoe store that was more accommodating. I wish I could remember the gentleman's name that helped us, but he was extremely helpful getting various sizes of different sandals they had in stock for my husband to try on until he found the one that was most comfortable and a perfect fit. He ended up having to special order a narrow size, and it took a few weeks to come in, but it was nice to know we were getting a shoe that was going to be an exact fit in the exact color and style my husband wanted. We were also instructed on how to properly care for the sandals, and we could bring the sandals in to have them resoled at their store for a fraction of the price of buying a new pair. We ended up paying a little more than what I had paid at the mall, but the quality of customer service was well worth it, and the shopping experience was so enjoyable that I returned at a later date to buy a pair for myself. Thank you Foot Dynamics! I look forward to returning in the future when we're ready to buy another pair of shoes/sandals.read more
