A "Shoe Makeover" is perfect for a person with nice shoes that would find it a shame to get rid of. Showing people the difference between the shapes of their feet versus the shape of their shoe is a jaw dropping eye opener, which we don’t

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF.

My name is Rima Patricia, I come from Ecuador. Since my childhood I’m related to the shoe business. My grandfather was a shoe maker. I have more than 30 years of experience in the shoe business. My experience is with men’s, women’s, and children shoes. I really enjoy working at Eneslow. I hope to continue to learn and have knowledge of techniques to helping our customers.

We help the customer choose the right footwear for their problems. We serve with courtesy. We give security to the customers; we have people here with experience in pedorthics and know how to help with any foot problems.

It all depends on the customer's need or how it can benefit them. We could give a specific model or something especially for the problems that they may have

WHAT MAKES ENESLOW UNIQUE AND HOW DOES THAT BENEFIT YOU?

Enslow is one of the only stores in NYC who gives the customer one on one consultation. We also have Board Certified Pedorthists and staff on site that can provide internal/external modifications to accommodate the customer’s needs. This benefits me to learn and help the customer in new ways.

WHY SHOULD PEOPLE SHOP AT ENESLOW VS. OTHER SHOE STORES?

In other stores they will not give you the one on one time as does Eneslow. Also you can buy shoes, and modify all at one time.

ELIGIO MEDINA

MANAGER

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF.

I have been working as a salesman for 40 years. My last 16 years I have been dealing with individuals with different types of foot problems. I have taken several courses regarding foot problems and diabetic customer. This has helped build my knowledge on shoe fitting.

Customers get their feet measured and assessed in order to determine their foot problems and how we can solve them.

Since the foot changes, a "shoe makeover" would not be beneficial because it would not be a satisfied fit. However, new shoes would provide a better fit because for the anatomy tends to change.

WHAT MAKES ENESLOW UNIQUE AND HOW DOES THAT BENEFIT YOU?

Eneslow has been in existence since 1909 to help solve foot related issues for individuals with foot complications. In addition, we have been able to assist customers who do not have any foot complications, but just want to be comfortable.

Unlike any other shoe stores, we specialize and have knowledgeable sales representatives at Eneslow.

JERRY ZELANKO

PEDORTHIC SALES PROFESSIONAL

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF.

I am 72 years old; I have been selling shoes for over 40 years. I am married 51 years and have 3 grand children. I am an intricate member of the great sales team at our Little Neck location. I owned my own family with shoe store and my last position at Yonke I was a buyer and shoe designer.

WHAT IS “ENESLOW’S PEDORTHIC ASSESSMENT” AND HOW DOES IT HELP A CUSTOMER FIND “HAPPY FEET”?

The pedorthic assessment is our tool to help the customer the correct shoes. We analyze their needs by watching them walk, checking the motion and feet by asking what kind of problems they may have if any.

Sometimes making a favorite shoe over could be rather costly to the customer. It still would be an old refurbished shoe. Perhaps selling a new pair would be more beneficial to their needs.

Eneslow has 104 years of experience, some people come with referrals and recommendations from mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles because of our ability to care for their footwearand needs. We pay attention to for the customer and listen to their questions and complaints with my ability to help find a viable solution to specific feet related problems.

I believe every situation is different depending on the condition of the shoes and the fitting of the shoes. In many occasions we can salvage the customer’s shoes and make a customer for life.

Eneslow provides the tools that you need to become a professional pedorthist and make a career of it in the shoe business.

WHY SHOULD PEOPLE SHOP AT ENESLOW VS. OTHER SHOE STORES?

No other shoe store has an equipped team of professionals that can fit, modify, repair and custom make any shoe or orthotic like Eneslow. There is an art in matching the correct shoe with the correct feet and nobody does it better than Eneslow.

MAJID FENTAS

MANAGER,
BOARD CERTIFIED PEDORTHIST

During the course of my career in this business, which spans forty years, I have come to don several hats, and the days when I started “lasting” leather on custom shoes in a factory seem to belong to a very distant age.

I must admit that my training as a high school teacher of French did little to prepare me for my new endeavor in the shoe making world. How could it if one, without a semblance of a transition, jumps from syntax, morphology, and semantics to bunions and hammertoes?

Nothing could be more dissimilar to parts of speech than parts of the foot.

Yet, I decided almost instantly one warm September day in 1973 that the foot would be my new calling. During these forty years, I have designed, made and sold shoes. I made orthotics. I worked with famous athletes, as well as, movie and television personalities. So, if you, the prospective customer, want to pick my brain and take advantage of me, I mean take advantage of my extensive experience, stop by Eneslow. It will be an experience you will not soon forget.
