Our Story

Our Story

For over 80 years, the Richey family has been dedicated to the footwear needs of the Mid-Atlantic and the Southeast. Since Franz Richey opened our first store in Rockville, MD in 1938. We now have four board-accredited stores in Rockville, MD; McLean, VA; Charlottesville, VA; and Raleigh, NC.

We have certified pedorthists at each of our stores. Pedorthists are like custom shoe fitters. They are specifically trained to fit your shoe to your foot or prescribed medical device. All of our sales associates at the store are trained to ask about your specific lifestyle and measure your feet, so that they can find a shoe that not only looks great, but will fit into all aspects of your life.

We believe that footcare elevates people’s lives, and finding the right fit the first time not only saves time and money, but gets enhances a person’s well-being.
