Heel to Toe opened in 1976 in an 800-square-foot store in Champaign, Illinois’ Market Place Mall. In 1987 we moved to our present location now a 10,000-square-foot multiple brand comfort shoe store and orthopedic facility in downtown Urbana, Illinois.
We stock more than 20 brands of shoes and have Birkenstock and New Balance concept stores within our facility. Our inventory boasts more than 12,000 pairs of shoes, socks, apparel, and shoe inserts.
We have five certified/licensed pedorthists on staff as well as a certified/licensed orthotist who perform biomechanical evaluations, fit shoes to help people with foot problems related to diabetes, arthritis, and injury, and fabricate and fit orthotics and braces. We also have a full service shoe repair lab.
Our most recent expansion included adding a fourth store, Innovative Bracing, headed up by Certified orthotist Dan Kopolow. The innovative bracing part of the business, and the new facility allows for more room to serve clinical patients better, which provides orthopedic bracing, foot care and pedorthic services for folks with special needs.
