As you can tell by the name of this family-owned small business, the focus here is on shoes that both look good and make your feet feel good. The staff are dedicated to helping you find just the right boots, dress shoes, sandals and sneakers, and carry a wide range of brands including Mephisto, Finn Comfort, Dansko, Joya, Aerosoles, Deer Tracks and Merrell. Women with diabetes, bunions, high arches, plantar fasciitis or other foot issues know better than anyone that when the feet are not happy, the rest of the body isn’t happy either. Comfortable shoes do not have to be clunky; Shoes That Fit Me has styles that are also fashionable and attractive.
Due to the talents of Sacramento artist and designer Lindsey McGrath, you can have footwear that is totally unique and made just for you. McGrath takes shoes, typically Vans, Chuck Taylors, Toms, Converse and Doc Martens, and paints them in the design of your choosing. Memorialize your favorite band, album or musician on one-of-a-kind footwear, whether you prefer classic Rolling Stones, The Weeknd, Mark Ronson, Daft Punk or Johnny Cash. Beautiful floral designs can keep you thinking of springtime during the colder and wetter months, and you only need look at your shoes to mentally slip off to Maui or the Swiss Alps. McGrath can also hand paint an image from photos of your new baby, a wedding picture, vacation snapshots or other personal photos. You can also wear shoes that show your favorite book, movie, food, kid’s artwork or animal.
