A HEALTHY STEP Sells Cute and Trendy Shoes, Too - Not Just Practical Ones

It's Foot Health Month (and "Wiggle Your Toes Day" is just around the corner)...  What better excuse could there be for shoe-shopping?


A HEALTHY STEP is located in The Village of Waugh Chapel at 1300 Main Chapel Way in Gambrills - just 5 minutes from Crofton, MD.

I pictured "grandma" shoes or "nun" shoes, for some reason, when a store called "A HEALTHY STEP" opened near retirement condos in the Village at Waugh Chapel.  I had absolutely zero desire to visit that store.  My mistake! Now I have to laugh at that misconception.

Their shoes may be "fine-quality men's and women's American and European comfort footwear," as their website claims, but they're really good looking, as well - at least some of them are. These red shoes have become my uniform shoes... I wear them or a matching pair in brown nearly every day, with slacks or summer dresses.


I might never have discovered A HEALTHY STEP had I not walked past the window while killing time before my nail appointment at nearby Robert Andrews a few weeks ago.  My plan was to get some exercise by walking to the other end of the shopping center and back, but I spotted so many cute shoes in the window at A HEALTHY STEP - I never finished that walk.  Curious about prices, I stepped inside to check out the prices and left with two pairs of shoes.  Since then, I've been back to buy more of the same shoes in other colors.  They were THAT comfortable!


A Healthy Step near Crofton

If you live near Fort Meade (Crofton, Gambrills, Odenton) and haven't visited A HEALTHY STEP yet, I encourage you to check it out.  You'll find high quality footwear. friendly knowledgeable customer service, custom orthotics, and, oh yes, "cute" and "trendy" shoes for women.

(They do have men's shoes, too, but I didn't pay much attention to them.  Sorry, guys, you'll have to visit there and let us know what you think.)

Fall is just around the corner, and I'll be visiting A HEALTHY STEP for more cute shoes that just happen to be practical, too.  It's located just about midway between Robert Andrews Salon and Home Goods.


Thank you, David Lewis, for founding A HEALTHY STEP and opening it right here in the Crofton area.  I'm sorry it took me so long to step inside and find out that you sell cute and trendy shoes, too - not just practical ones.


If you're looking for an excuse to visit A HEALTHY STEP, remember that August is "Foot Health Month" and August 6 is "National Wiggle Your Toes Day."  Seriously!

I will have to check that out.  I hope they had wide widths available because I always have trouble with comfy shoes.  I've been meaning to check out Robert Andrews as well for a pedicure.  Maybe i'll combine the trips this week.

There's nothing like a couple of pair of new shoes to perk up a girl's attitude.  My darlin' will have to read this post and go shopping.

I just KNOW that's your cute painted toes, right?

Like the photo and the area where the shop is....I like these kinds of places rather than the big huge mall!

Margaret - I always like to read testimonials. Just read another one from a Realtor local to our area. It makes me appreciate a realtor more because you are not just about selling real estate in the area, but also about the companies within the area.

Terry - Yes, this place was quite a surprise to me and everyone who asks where I got those shoes.

Yep - How'd you guess!  I'm a regular at Robert Andrews down the street from here.  'Treat myself to a pedicure every other week in the summer.

John - It's so true.  Selling the area is half the "battle" for us.  In a large Metropolitan area like this, I believe REALTORS truly are "ambassadors" for our communities.

Margaret, when you referred to "nun" shoes, I really had to laugh!  What memories that brings back, and not all of them good!
