From the earliest known sandals dating back to 8000 BC, footwear has long played a vital role in mankind’s ability to explore the natural landscape. Since these ancient beginnings, things have come a long way and at Sturtevants we are proud to display the finest selection of footwear in the Sun Valley area. While our focus is on shoes ideal for Sun Valley’s day hikes and trail runs, Sturtevants is also the place to get boots for backpacking in the rugged Sawtooth Mountains, sandals and water shoes for your adventures on the Salmon River, or Ketchum formal shoes for a night on the town. Featuring quality brands such as Salomon, Pearl Izumi, Scott, The North Face, Asolo, Merrell, Teva, Reef, Chaco, Born, and Blundstone, in women’s, men’s, and kid’s sizes and styles, Sturtevants is the place to go for all of your footwear needs.
Having the best selection of shoes doesn’t help the customer if you don’t have a knowledgeable staff to help find the right match for the right foot (and the left foot too). Our top three shoe experts have a collective 110+ years of shoe fitting experience and understand the uniqueness of each person’s foot and how to pick the correct shoe for that foot. Utilizing the Brannock Device, we determine not just the length of the foot, but the width and arch length as well, giving us the info we need to properly size each individual up. We also offer trim-to-fit and custom heat molded footbeds to help correct any issues to further create the perfect fit for your foot. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff takes great pride in their work so come in, sit down on the sizing bench and let them help you find the right footwear for all of your outdoor adventures.
