Not what it used to be
Aug 2021 • Solo
Went in for a pair of work boots on a Tuesday afternoon. They weren't very busy.
Four employees were standing around the checkout register talking among themselves. Some guy whose name tag indicated supervisor stood in a corner, by the boots, watching them. No one greeted me or bothered to ask if I would like any help finding something. This is the first time in over thirty years of shopping here that I was not asked! FIVE employees were standing there, watching me walk in and look at work boots. Huge change from the days when no matter how busy they were someone would check in with you and offer to help. Not wasting my time with this place again.

Fun Stop - You'll Buy a Pair of Shoes You Didn't Know You Needed
Jun 2021
Need shoes? This is your place. Don't need shoes? Go in anyway. Saw everything from a Women's size 4 to a Men's 20EEEE. Very knowledgeable and helpful staff. My traveling companion wanted shoes, I did not. I bought a pair anyway - not because of pushy staff, but because "there is just so much there" and the prices are super good. They will measure your feet and will actively comment on fit.

Ideal if you are looking for something in the wide range of outdoor shoes/boots/sandals. Remarkable choices in sports gear (who knew there were volleyball shoes?) Probably not your first choice if you are looking for strappy gold sandals for a wedding but I saw those too.

Wide selection in hard-to-find sizes.

Was there on a Saturday so guessing the crowd reflected the weekend (but COVID - so who knows??). Discount store across the street worth a look as well.

Never Again
Oct 2020
I enjoyed their selection and that's pretty much where it ended. I picked out two pairs of shoes to start. Asked for help. They didn't have the sized in what I wanted but clerk insisted that the pair she brought back would work just fine. Nope, I didn't want that type and didn't need half based rudeness to tell me that I did. I moved on to athletic shoes rather than what I first picked out. I felt rushed to make a decision, but I eventually did make a decision and purchase a pair. I won't be a return customer. It's a long drive for me to not find what I wanted in the first place. Neither of the clerks that assisted me suggested that I get measured for correct sizing either. Don't shoe stores do that any more? For the cost of what I got sizing should have been included.

The Shoe Box makes my list of things to do on a semi-annual basis. It is the only place I can find quality shoes, unique shoes at a great price. I really recommend this place as the "go to" spot in America to purchase shoes. Allow at least one hour for your experience!

Tradition for our grandchildren and we love them too.
Aug 2020
Shopping at the Shoe Box has been a tradition with our grandchildren ever since they were small. They would stay with us for a week each summer and we always went to the "Train Shoe Store" (there's a train table in the children's dept) to buy shoes for the upcoming school year. It is such a tradition that they always ask if we are going to the "Train Shoe Store" each year. We now have 7 grandchildren and each of them gets treated to new shoes. We started about 12 years ago and continue our annual visit to this day. The Shoe Box stands behind their shoes and have always been very accomodating if we have any problems.
We highly recommend this "vacation destination"!
My husband and I also ordered shoes during the covid pandemic over the phone. The staff sent us pictures of the shoe styles so we could make our selection. They shipped them to us and we had them in two days. Excellent service!!!

Awesome experience

There are so many interesting things to do besides buying shoes or boots once you enter the main store . Trains run over head on a circular track and the walls are covered with sports memorabilia for everyone it’s a fantastic place normally there are many people to wait on you and u can’t beat the prices . Steve the owner has always done great things for the community and is great guy to talk too
He even works on the floor too just like it should be
It’s the only place I care to buy my boots and shoes
They stand behind everything they sell

Even a Size 15 foot Can Be Accomodated Here
Jul 2019
on a drive up to Spring Green, I was pleasantly surprised to happen upon this place. I was reluctant to go in as I seldom find size 15 shoes in stores. My friend assured me that they have a huge stock and I might be pleasantly surprised, She was right. They had sizes beyond 15 in almost every shoe. Prices were reasonable and there were plenty of staff members to serve you. If you need shoes, this place is worth a 100 mile or even longer trip.

Shoe lover's paradise
Oct 2019
This place is a little overwhelming with all the shoe choices. Mostly upscale brands from what I saw, and not cheap. Apparently there is an outlet store across the street for the out of season shoes, but we didn't see that. This must be a huge drawing point in the area, as everyone seemed to know about it. The local sports team was selling food as a fund raiser outside the front door. The whole place had a small town feel. There were plenty of clerks available to get your shoe choices out of the back room.

A great selection of shoes

This place draws business for miles away. Friendly staff to take care of you. Very good prices but ask for a discount and see what happens. The owner Steve is really a sports maniac.
