Striving to Serve Our Community

We’re people people. It kind of goes hand-in-hand (or is that foot-in-foot!?) with what we strive to do each day: Help folks solve foot-related health issues through one-on-one service and advanced footwear support solutions.

However, helping our beloved Southern Alberta communities stay mobile is just part of it. Assisting young people is dear to our hearts, and that’s why we support local children.

Through our Happy Soles Program, we supply less-fortunate kids in the community with new, supportive footwear – so they can run and jump and play with some pretty great kicks!
