A short note to tell you how impressed I was with the professionalism you
and your staff demonstrated...
I just wanted to say thank you! I wanted to leave feedback/testimonial but didnt see how to do that
so I will do so here. I was in Saturday the 14th of July. I am on my feet 8-10 hrs a day and
thought I had to just live with the foot pain and ankle swelling. I had watched your commericals time
and time again but living in Marshfield just kept putting it off and putting it off. I was skeptical
since the commericals seemed too good to be true but always wanted to just go in and see how much if
at all you could help me. Well your commericals are 100% accurate. My husband and I were greeted by
the friendly staff and helped right away. My feet were measured. I was questioned about what I would
be doing in the shoes, walking, running, etc, and they even suggested I walk in their back room in my
shoes to see how it would feel on concrete not just the carpet in the store since thats the surface I
stand on all day at work. I am so impressed with them taking the time to fit me not just pull out a
size and walk away to help the next person in the store. I ended up buying three pairs and my husband,
who has nothing wrong with his feet, bought a pair of red wing boots. It was only around 25.00 per pair
more than what I pay normally for shoes and that was a welcome suprise. Just so happy and thankful for
your store and staff. You should be proud and I wish you continued success.

On June 1st, I accompanied a friend into Shippy's. She was shopping for comfortable shoes for an Alaskan cruise.
I had no intention of buying shoes that day, as my closet is filled with shoes (mostly very pricey shoes) that
I can barely wear as they are not comfortable. I jokingly told the sales associate that I was not looking for
anything unless she could find me a pair of shoes that were guaranteed comfortable. I explained that I had
severe arthritis in my feet, hammertoes, and two new knees (having had total knee replacements less than a year
ago). I was in constant discomfort and my stride was deplorable. Jim Shippy assisted her in finding shoes for
me after watching me walk for awhile in bare feet. I purchased a pair of Brooks running shoes and they are like
a miracle!! I walk with comfort and with an almost normal stride. I have no more back pain and my knees feel
terrific. My feet still have the arthritis and they do get tired, but I am able to put in a full day's work,
walk much further than I could before and am almost pain free. I can't believe that a pair of shoes made that
much difference. Thank you, Jim Shippy and your wonderful staff for making my life more enjoyable.

My husband and I were at Shippy Shoes on May 27th for running shoes. My husband had not run for 2 years due to
plantar fascia issues. You got us into running shoes that were larger than what we had run in in the past.
Each time I have run now, I have thought - "I have to write Becky to tell her how much we are enjoying our
new shoes!" Well, FINALLY I remembered! I have gone for 7-8 mile runs and my feet feel great. Despite the
fact that I was concerned I might be tripping on the longer length of my shoes, I now see the advantage of
the size you chose for both of us. I have so much more push-off now and the pads of my feet no longer hurt.
I just want to thank you for your assistance on our stop at Shippy Shoes from Eagle River on our way to
Minneapolis. Michael is ready to head out the door as we speak and is so grateful to be running without pain.
He has made the incline board and we both use it on a regular basis. One of my co-workers saw it and will
have her husband make one for her. I have sung the praises of Shippy Shoes to her and she will be down there
when she has a chance. Again, thank you for your expert assistance and good luck to you!

I visited your store today in search of a new pair of running shoes.
I heard about Shippy Shoes from a friend...

The purpose of this letter is to remind residents of a priceless
commodity that we have in the Stevens Point area; namely, Shippy Shoes...
I had my first experience with your store on Saturday and I am very impressed.
I have a very hard to fit foot and have never...
Hi Becky, I just want to tell you how much I appreciate what you did for me.
If not for you and your expertise...
I just wanted to let you know about the excellent customer service that I received from Heidi Stockheimer.
On Sunday the 16th I purchased a pair of renning shoes.
As busy as she was, she took the time to explain everything necessary for me to make an educated purchase.
Please extend to her the recognition she deserves.
I just wanted to send Jim Shippy a note to thank him for his time this past weekend and helping me through
my plantar fascitis. I had been bothered by this injury all summer and have been unable to run. I went to
Jim and expected to get a molded orthotic, but ended up getting an over the counter orthotic. I would really
like to thank Jim for the suggestion to use the incline board to stretch the tightened tendons. I have
religiously used since Saturday and have since been able to run. I am ecstatic and thankful.
