|Locate a retail store where the employees are able to size your feet using a "Brannock Device”. You have probably seen this device at one time in your life. They come in male and female models so make sure the correct one is used.
We carry all the major brands in the industry including:
Rocky, Corcoran, Hi-Tec Magnum, Thorogood, Bates, Original SWAT, Dansko, Skechers, Nursemates, and Rockers. Each of these companies is so confident with the quality of their products, that they guarantee every piece of footwear they produce. Our staff is constantly updating the footwear inventory based on durability, application, and customer feedback. Ask about the economy shoe and boot styles and our group discount policy.
All the major brands under one roof
Length and width are the most important measurements, so only buy a "wide" width shoe if you measure for a wide. Never buy a pair of shoes if even a bit of your toe is touching the end. Leather shoes will stretch in the width so it is okay if they are a little snug at first. They will only take a day or so to stretch. The arch length is significant when purchasing a slip-on type shoe such as a Fire Bunker Boot or Wellington.
Size does matter when buying duty footwear
Once the size is determined, try on both the right and left shoes and walk around the store. You should be able to tell whether or not the size is correct in the matter of a few minutes. If you are still not sure, bring them home and walk around inside for as long as it is necessary to make your decision. Most stores will not take back shoes once they have been worn outside (unless they are defective).
Before you make the trip to purchase a pair of shoes or boots, here are some helpful hints:
- Never worry about the price of comfortable footwear.
- Your feet are the gateway to a healthy lower back and knees, so they are worth the attention.
- Leather or leather/nylon combo footwear is recommended for breathability.
- Man-made uppers or "pleather" will only cause your feet to perspire
