What difference has Good Feet made on your life?
I started as a Good Feet client. I had been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis for 20 years and worked at a job where I was on my feet all day. When I got home I didn’t want to get out of the car and wanted to cry because of the pain. My husband and I went to The Good Feet store after trying everything…drug store supports, a boot and seeing a podiatrist, without any relief. Once I had the Good Feet arch supports I had immediate relief in one foot and gradual relief in my second foot. I believed in Good Feet so much that I wanted to work there. I didn’t think it was possible for something to help that much.
When we were getting ready to move back to Boise from California I heard that Good Feet was hiring and after sharing my story with a Good Feet manager over the phone I had the opportunity for an in-person interview, so I made the drive from California to Boise to interview and drove back home the next day. I knew how much the supports worked, they had helped me, and I wanted to help others.
Favorite Good Feet experience?
When I see people cry because they feel so much better just walking around in-store, and they can’t believe they finally found something that helped them. We often get big hugs when customers are on their way out of the store.
