August's Shoe Fitter of the Month is Cindy T. from Bellevue, Washington. Cindy is a SHOES-n-FEET veteran, having helped grow the business in its early years, though we did lose her for some time to one of our favorite sneaker brands. Now she's back at the store making sure our customers are walking out in the right shoes and bridging the gap between us and the medical community...and local Thai restaurants, to be sure!
