HealthyFeetStore.com Blog FAQ

What is HealthyFeetStore.com?

HealthyFeetStore.com is an online shoe and foot care products store established by podiatrist, Dr. Jeff Hurless, with the help of his wife Jennifer Hurless and her mother, Marty Backer. Healthyfeetstore.com allows people with sensitive feet access to all of the best orthopedic, therapeutic, and diabetic shoe brands, as well as an extensive selection of foot care products, all in one place 24 hours a day.

The original idea behind HealthyFeetStore.com was to create a store that would give Dr. Hurless’ patients at Advanced Podiatric Medical Center, his Thousand Oaks, California podiatry practice, access to the shoes and products they needed to relieve foot pain and improve existing foot conditions. Dr. Hurless and family were pleasantly surprised when the store’s popularity rapidly spread beyond its humble beginnings. Since its founding in 2004, HealthyFeetStore.com has served thousands of people across the nation.
