July's Shoe Fitter of the Month is Shoreline's Brian R. A newcomer to SHOES-n-FEET earlier this year, he has already made quite a name for himself at the Shoreline store. We wonder if it's his pure love for feet and foot health or maybe it's just because he's so fun to be around. Just know that if you go on a walk with him, you might have to turn around and head for home alone - this guy can walk for hours!
