Lots of Shoes and a Patient Staff 7/25/2009

I had the unfortunate luck to have Roger at the Galleria Nordstrom Shoe department wait on me. I have an odd size shoe, so you would logically go to Nordstrom's because they specialize in service...right...wrong. I told him my issues with shoes and he brought out two pairs, neither of them fit, and he said well I don't know how else to help you. Don't you have other shoes in an 11 or 12 women than these two pairs...well yes, but they won't fit you. He would not bring out any other pairs of shoes for me to try on. I left, went to Brucettes and spent $350.00 on shoes (that nice shoe sales man brought me out more than 20 pairs of shoes in my size). Take that Nordstroms. Where is the customer service at that store! Pros: Great Selection of Large Sizes more

Great Flats for Wide Feet 7/25/2009

The customer service here is amazing. I went in there looking for a pair of black flats for my wide and retarded small feet since any pair of flats I buy usually end up blistering my feet like crazy. So I asked a sale associate for help and he was incredibly helpful with finding me a pair of black flats. He gave me a variety of choices and they were all within my price range. I love it here! And I'd definitely come back. Pros: Great Selection more

Great Sandal Sale! 7/25/2009

Dear Brucettes, Pros: Great Selection Cons: Sometimes Expensive more

Patience be his virtue 4/26/2008

The gent that I dealt with, while being a little rough around the edges and selling every shoe as ""THE most comfortable shoe you can buy"", was patient and kept his sense of humor while bringing me shoe after shoe in both wide and medium as the width changes from manufacturer to manufacture. While also working with other customers he watched me and noted shoes I admired and when he came back with the shoes I had sent him for he'd also bring, in wide and medium, the shoes he saw me admire. If the shoe I liked wasn't available in my size, he'd bring another that resembled them very closely. I was IMPRESSED at his patience and hope he got a BIG commission on my sale (bought 2 pair - one HE brought that was on sale 1/2 off by the way and was within my ""shoe criteria""). If shoes had always been this easy to buy, THAT FIT RIGHT, and all salesmen had been as attentive as Bill Pettis, I would not have severe spurs, ingrown toe nails and fallen arches! You get what you give ladies and I was determined to have fun choosing shoes and Bill caught that and joined me! A++ Pros: Lots of styles my size foot -med to wide Cons: Few styles in my Mom's - AAAA more

R U Rich? 2/23/2008

Yes, Brucette's is a God-send for those with hard-to-fit needs; however, for the rest of us, go elsewhere. I asume the salespeople are on commission, and their attitude reflects same. They size you up, decide if you're going to buy and have the money, and treat you accordingly. Where are the female salespeople? Diversity? Pros: Carry hard-to-fit sizes Cons: Snooty salespeople more

Brucette's Shoes, Houston 6/1/2007

I have ultra-narrow, boney, very hard to fit feet (8AAAA). Shoe shopping has always been a frustrating, futile experience, usually leaving me empty-handed and in tears. When I could find shoes in my size they pretty much only came in black. One day I stumbled on Brucette's on line and called to see if they REALLY had a big selection in sizes. I was assured that they did so the next Saturday I drove down from Austin. I was warmly greeted by Dan, who quickly told me he was sure he could find something I liked. I was floored when he brought out about 20 pair of start. I was in hog heaven!! Bronze shoes, pink shoes, white shoes, silver shoes -- plus black, of course. I bought 10 pair of shoes and loved all but one pair. Dan was great -- patient, friendly and helpful. Service after the sale was great, too -- one pair wasn't quite as comfy when I got them home as I had thought. I called Dan and he said just send them back, no problem. I'm going back this weekend for some summer dress sandals, and called ahead to be sure Dan will be there. Price-wise I found them reasonable. The store is dazzling, with hundreds of pairs of colorful shoes, fancy hats and unusual handbags. It irritates me that I live in a major city and no store in town (even one so-called speciality store for ""hard to fit"" sizes) carries my size. So I'm a big Brucette's fan! The drive is nothing compared to being able to avoid frustration and actually get some nice shoes that really fit. Pros: great selection and sales staff, good after-sale service Cons: there's not one where I live! more



Wonderful Selection and Service 11/28/2006

Brucettes is a wonderful place to shop. I wear a size that is very easy to find (8 Medium) but it is impossible to find help in most shoe departments. I'm always impressed with the personal customer service I receive when I am shopping at Brucettes. They still know the importance of giving you time to try on a new pair of shoes and it is really nice to have someone that knows how a pair of shoes is supposed to fit. more

unacceptable customer ""service"" 11/15/2006

Yes, the selections are terrific, as are the availabilities of sizes, but I won't give them my time and money. I made the trip in from Katy after receiving a phone call from them, telling me that my order had arrived. When I got to the store, no one there had any knowledge of my order and doubted that anyone had called me. Words were exchanged, but they gave no apologies. It was suggested by the ""manager"" that I not visit the store again. I've never been treated so badly and rudely by anyone, especially by someone whose job is to provide customer service and should know that he can easily lose business to competitors. Needless-to-say, I have not gone back and have discouraged others from shopping there. more

You Can Always Find Great Shoes Here 11/9/2006

I wear size 12 and every time I go to a chain shoe store it's the same story -- sorry, we only carry up to a size 11. Not at Brucette's. On my last visit I asked for a black, medium heel pump. The salesman brought 8 different kinds, and when I didn't think they qere quite right, he went back and found 7 more. Imagine what he can do with a size 7 or 8. The service is wonderful and they are open to special orders. You can get everything from casual sandals to formal shoes. The shoes aren't cheap, but they are good quality and last. They're open late and on weekends so you can shop after work. I've been shopping here since 1994 and would recommend it to anyone who has hard to fit feet. Pros: Galleria area, open late, great selection and service Cons: Lots of traffic in Galleria more

Fantastic Shoes! 10/17/2006

Brucettes did a wonderful job in helping me with my wedding planning. I had 14 girls that had to be fit and Ken was able to find all of them the perfect shoe. All of the shoes were dyed in 2 days and looked perfect. I have been back to shop 2 times since and have always left with too many pairs of fabulous shoes and boots. Thanks for being by favorite shoe store! Pros: Great selection and helpful staff Cons: Galleria traffic more

Best Shoes Anywhere 10/17/2006

I wear a very hard size to find (Size 11), and Brucettes had an awesome selection of really trendy and fashionable shoes in my size. Most shoe stores have nothing in my size and Brucettes had tons of great shoes. Very attentive staff that always works really hard to show me tons of options. Can't wait till they get in their boots in so I can buy some more. Pros: Selection Cons: crowded on Saturdays more

Consistently well fitted 10/12/2006

I have been shopping here for years, this place is a dream. A consistently perfect fit keeps me coming back time and again. Mary is extremely helpful, and the atmosphere is beautiful. Pros: absolutely everything Cons: none more

Last real shoes store 7/30/2006

Thank you Bab, Pros: great service more

Go, Bill! 5/27/2006

Yes! Bill is the only person I want helping me when I shop at Brucettes! I've purchased my shoes from Bill for, gosh, 20 years I think! It's a great store - I tell him my size and he brings everything out! I highly recommend the personal service given my the employees at this store! more

Great! 3/18/2006

I was searching for shoes for my wedding. Bill immediately helped me when I came in. I chose three to try on, and he brought those out. When I wasn't sure, he found more and ended up letting me try on about 10 pairs! He was patient and great. I am highly satisfied and ended up finding the perfect shoe, after going to many other shoe stores. Even though the store was crowded (it was a Saturday), I was promptly helped and the service was wonderful. Pros: customer service, selection, location Cons: crowded more

Awful Service, Good Shoes, Won't shop here again. 3/10/2006

ONE, salesperson acted as if getting me different shoe was not his job. Was like he was trying to pressure me into the first shoe I tried on so he didnt have to work. TWO, returned to have shoes dyed and to look for her shoes for mom. Salesperson was RUDE. I came with two fabric samples (from dress shop) and he quickly snapped ""THOSE ARE DIFFERENT COLORS!!!"" like I was an idiot. Looked the same to me. Then, he didnt help my mom at all so we left. THREE. Was supposed to approve the color sample before shoes were dyed. Was called that SHOES, not sample, were ready. Didnt bring claim ticket and salesperson literally ROLLED HIS EYES at me (thought I was approving the sample). Mentioned twice that I was supposed to approve the sample first but was ignored Shoes & dying: great. Service: AWFUL. Wont go back. Pros: selection, dying service Cons: service, rude salespeople more

Horrible Customer Service 2/6/2006

The first impression when I entered the store was small store stocked with not very stylish shoes. There are a handful of stylish shoes, and the rest look like shoes my grandmother wears. The sales staff is the worst part of the store. All the sales people there are men in their mid 40's and very rude. One sales person was clearly not occupied and when he saw my mother and I nearing him, he looked uneasy and ""subtly"" walked in the opposite direction. The other sales person who did decide to assist us got angry when my mother didn't like the shoes he brought out for her. He began slapping the covers back on the boxes and slamming the boxes on top of one another (not exaggerating). I hope others have more pleasant experiences than this, but as for me and my mother, we will not be returning. Pros: Some stylish shoes Cons: Sales Staff, Small Space, Not much variety more
