The Next Step is a shoe store for people with serious foot problems who have been referred by doctors, chiropractors or podiatrists. It is not a regular shoe store, so don't come here looking for the latest trends in footwear. The owner is patient and knowledgeable, and makes recommendations and adjusts shoes based on customers' prescriptions or by watching them walk. The shoes are not always stylish and the wait for his attention can take some time, but his customers maintain that his services can bring great relief from their foot problems. He will take private, fee-based appointments for those who don't want to wait during regular business hours.
