Invest in your health with custom handcrafted footwear created just for you, or as a gift for someone you cherish. With Deer Ridge Custom Shoes, you can be confident that your shoes are made here in Vermont, USA.

Ordering custom footwear is an investment in your health and is not inexpensive. It is like buying tires for your car. Without adequate tires on your car, you may be at risk. The same is true for your shoes. They are the basis from which you are carried through the day. Creating the right foundation for your body is critical for overall health and well-being.

To begin the process, we ask that you contact us to make an appointment for us to meet with you during one of our frequent trips to Florida. Of course, you can always meet with us here in our shop in Vermont. Mail order kits are also available for your use or as a thoughtful gift for a loved one or friend. Simply give us a call at (802) 365-7894.



When you are visiting with us, please plan on about 2 hours in order for us to accurately capture the information needed to get your footwear in process including footprints, measurements, design and material choices and your history and goals. The next step is to craft a pair of lasts to build the shoes on and create your custom footbed or orthotic, if ordered. A pair of trial shoes will then be made for you to try - either in person or it will be mailed to you with instructions.

Once we all agree on the fit of the trial shoe, the true crafting of your own unique pair of shoes begins. All of our footwear is resoleable and we offer complete re-fittings for those overly loved pairs of shoes that need extra attention as time passes. Resoleable and long lasting means a reduction in waste in support of a greener environment and happier feet.
