Chris Bentvelzen, Owner
I have been an owner of SHOES-n-FEET for since 2001. My history is as a 6th generation shoe repairman. In each store, you will see a black and white picture taken in 1932 of my Grandfather. The picture was taken in Holland in front of his shoe repair shop.
For the last 20+ years, I have had the privilege of doing some amazing things within the shoe industry. I have consulted on design work for companies such as New Balance, Aravon by New Balance, Dunham by New Balance, Brooks, Naot, and Bite.
I currently or in the past have sat on three National Boards, including National Shoe Retailers - Education (youngest member), New Balance Family Shoe Advisory Committee and New Balance Over the Counter Arch Support.
I am also involved in education, with lecturing appearances at Samuel Merritt Podiatry Students, Aravon and Dunham's National Sales Meeting, New Balance 2010 Family Retailer National Summit, and Elite Conference Aetrex.
I look forward to working with you to solve your footwear needs!
