Evergreen Footwear provides class and comfort all year long

If Santa lived in Placerville instead of the North Pole, he’d probably go to Evergreen Footwear at 1224 Broadway for comfortable foot gear to help get through the holiday rush.

Do your feet hurt at the end of the day? If so, says Judy Stanfield, owner of Evergreen Footwear, this is the place to come to find the perfect shoes, shoes that will make your life more comfortable and energetic.

After being at 1297 Broadway for more than eight years, Evergreen Footwear is now located at 1224-B Broadway, behind Starbucks and near Rite-Aid.

But the value, selection and customer service is the same as it always was when it was on the other side of the street — excellent.  In fact, Evergreen Footwear has been voted the No. 1 shoe store in El Dorado County by Mountain Democrat readers for five years in a row.

“I’ve always called it old-fashioned service; we’re not just a big box store,” said Stanfield.

Evergreen Footwear carries the best brands in comfortable and fashionable shoes for men and women, including New Balance, Born, Earth Shoes, Wolverine, SAS, Dansko, Birkenstock, Hush Puppies, Klog and many more.

Evergreen Footwear also boasts of employees who are incredibly knowledgeable, and help to provide proper measurements and styles for different types of feet. Without being overbearing, their kind and friendly service makes buying shoes pleasurable and hassle-free.

Among the most popular shoes are the clogs made by Klog. With different styles and colors, these shoes are chosen by many hospital employees for their comfort and support. Some are backless, some come with backs, but all provide arch support and are great for people who work on their feet.

Klogs are known for their excellent quality and comfort, and some are made of polyurethane, which are good for gardening.

One satisfied customer related how SAS shoes saved her feet. As a waitress, she could barely walk after a shift. A friend recommended the SAS shoes found at Evergreen, and they were quite an investment, but, she said, they saved her career.

Painstakingly made in Texas, these leather beauties have support in all the right places, helping this particular woman with Archilles tendon problems. The cost of high quality shoes is well worth it when one works on their feet, according to Stanfield.

The gift of comfort

Stanfield said that gift certificates are a wonderful option for people who would like to provide the important present of really good shoes. Comfortable shoes can make all the difference when one is on their feet a lot.

It is said that when your feet ache, it affects your whole body and diminishes well-being. Shoes are very important. Sometimes people do buy shoes as a gift, but usually people need to bring them back to be fitted properly.

“Gift certificates are perfect, so someone can find the perfect shoes,” Stanfield said.

For a little more excitement, one could find a shoe box, insert the gift certificate amid tissue paper wrap it up, and voila! — it’s not just a gift certificate. It’s a passport to better health, better fit and a gift of comfort and support all year long.

Slippers for men and women always make a sweet, traditional and marvelous holiday gift, and Evergreen Footwear carries a full line of comfortable, high quality slippers. With this variety, they won’t just be department store slippers, but something special.

Baggalini – the perfect bag?

Purses, too, are a fairly personal gift, and Evergreen Footwear has an elegant variety of fine purses. One can not go wrong with the purchase of a Baggalini handbag, available at Evergreen Footwear.

Though not made of leather, Baggalini purses are top-of-the line, and anyone who has ever owned one, according to Stanfield, comes back for another. Baggelinis are very popular. They’re simply both glamorous and practical, some of the best purses around.

Evergreen Footwear also carries a big variety of elegant purses made of leather. For those classy ladies who like to have their shoes match their purse, it is convenient to have them located in one shop. Whether one needs shoes, a purse or both, the wonderful atmosphere and convenient parking at Evergreen Footwear makes it a joy to shop — especially if you’re already wearing comfortable shoes.

The comfort found at Evergreen Footwear is also very stylish. The store also carries accessories, shoe care products, socks and nearly everything related to shoes.

While Evergreen Footwear carries the best products on the market, Stanfield truly believes that their warm customer service is what sets them apart from the crowd. She is proud of all her employees who reflect her own care and concern for the comfort and satisfaction of her clients.

As usual, the holidays are a special time, a time to make the ambiance of Evergreen Footwear even more special.

“Yes, we’re decorating. Dottie at Camino Flower Shop is making sure that we all toe the mark.”

But she is excited about the beautification projects of the Broadway Village Association and the increased foot traffic attracted by the wonderful holiday decor planned on upper Broadway. In the meantime, Evergreen Shoes is perenially full of comfort and cheer.

The store is open year round from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Friday and open until 6 p.m on Wednesday and Thursday. They’re open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and closed on Sunday. The phone number is 530-626-0693.

And if Santa stops by, they’ll find him the perfect pair of boots as well as stocking stuffers to help him on his holiday rounds.
