Actually, it’s all about you

Helping people stay active for life

 

When we set out to build this company, we did not want to just sell footwear – stores that sell shoes already exist. Kintec exists because we believe that by providing education on proper performance and health-oriented footwear, we can positively impact people’s lives.

To us, the opportunity to positively impact our customers’ lives every day is very exciting! It’s what drives every Kintec Pedorthist, Fitting Expert, and orthotic specialist. It’s why we go the extra mile in helping our customers find the perfect foot solution so that they can stay active, on their feet, and achieve a healthier lifestyle.

Our commitment is GREAT customer service and value for your money.
