High Quality Shoes & Custom Orthotics

Welcome to the American Foot Comfort Center website. I am happy to announce 28+ years in business in Humboldt County. I am Robert P. Slyvester, owner and certified pedorthist for American Foot Comfort Center.

Why Come to American Foot Comfort?

American Foot Comfort Center specializes in providing comfortable shoes that will work with customized orthotics. For those of you who have a job requiring extensive periods of standing, I sell high quality, repairable and comfortable shoes which give your feet the arch support and other benefits necessary for everyday use.

There are three keys to choosing quality footwear to keep your feet healthy.

  • Selecting comfortable shoes with solid construction and arch support.*
  • Only consider shoes made with quality materials.
  • Proper fit and sizing of your shoes is most important to ensure comfort and long-term wear of the shoe.

*Two important elements in the construction of shoes are a steel shank and a hard heel counter. The steel shanks provides good arch support. The hard heel counter provides additional support for those of us who walk towards the outside of our shoes.

If you are looking for nursing shoes or plan to use orthotics and want the most comfortable shoe, at American Foot Comfort you can find the shoes to fit your needs.

American Foot Comfort Center – not just a shoe store

As a certified pedorthist I have specialized training to modify footwear and employ supportive devices to address conditions which affect the feet and lower limbs. I am trained in the assessment of lower limb anatomy and biomechanics, and the appropriate use of corrective footwear – including shoes, shoe modifications, foot orthoses and other pedorthic devices. I build custom shoes, orthotic inserts and arch supports.

Come in and see the many new types of therapeutic socks in stock. Proper socks can make a huge difference. I have seamless, oversized, supportive, Cool-Max, and socks with teflon threading.

As well as supplying the most fashionable and comfortable shoes to accommodate them. Brands such as Birkenstock® are available at American Foot Comfort Center.
