Footwise specializes in shoes mostly of the Birkenstock variety. At the same time, the selection progresses far beyond the socks-with-sandals stereotype iconized by hippies who coveted comfort over style. Footwise fights the good fight, offering knee high hiking boots and stylish sandals that still possess all the practicality and quality such hiking brands are known for.
Bad Customer Service – Went to help my mom find some clogs, and the young lady clerk behind the counter was stone cold. No greetings, no smiles, and no helpful advice on the small selection of shoes we were looking at. I asked specific questions and received a minimal answer in return. I felt I was annoying her with my few questions & being the only two customers in the store. I wanted to try on a pair of shoes, but when I asked what size the display model was, a '9 1/2' was all the further I got.
We took our business elsewhere.
Limited Selection, No-effort Clerk – Gosh, could the clerk on 3/5 been any more bored? I hope she's not the owner. It felt like I was bothering her. No advice, no smils, no conversation. And not to mention the small selection. I'm sure I won't be going back there, not with so many other good shoe stores in PDX. I like shopping local, but geesh, have a pulse when a customer is asking questions.
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Extensive selection of Birkenstocks, Clarks and more. Socks, handbags and Birkenstock repair also available.
