Located on Historic Speedwell Avenue, this "little" shoe shop is one of the best in the business in Northern New Jersey. Selling primarily Red Wing and Allen Edmonds products and services, the guys at MPShoes start off your visit right.
After taking my measurements, they asked me what kind of shoe I was in need of, looked at my current shoes, and immediately identified that I had an irregular step in my walk that affected the wear on my shoes. They showed me what they were talking about, and I was floored. I never knew! They explained how my walk wears down the sole of my shoe and affects the insole as well.
Afterwards, we picked out an excellent Red Wing boot, which he adjusted for me to accommodate my unusual step. He then provided me with a complimentary leather conditioner package, and invited me back so he could check how the wear was working on my shoe. I had that pair of boots for four years.
These guys are experienced in shoes, moreso than anyone else I visitied during my 26 years in NJ. I think you'll be impressed if you need shoes or boots. Some of their stuff can be expensive, but when you're dealing with a quality store with quality products, it's very worth it.
