The Ultimate Shoe Haven

Rooted in the Mid-Atlantic, now available everywhere


Shoe lovers know where to find the highest quality and most stylish footwear that fit just right: Comfort One Shoes.

You can count on every shoe from Comfort One to be on trend while still promoting foot health.

That's because we curate a global collection that truly stands apart from all other shoe stores. We hand-pick the finest suppliers from nearly every continent*, selecting brands and styles we have vetted ourselves. (*We’re still waiting for Antarctica to get a shoe supplier!)

From boldly colorful sandals and sneakers to elegantly understated flats and boots, the shoes we carry all boast foot-friendly features like wide toe boxes, arch support and supple insoles.

Fluent in Feet

There’s a reason we happily claim the title of Shoe Whisperers.

Yet as much as we love shoes, we're just as obsessed with providing excellent service to everyone who walks through our doors. Our sales associates attend Comfort One University—the elite training academy for shoe whisperers. Before each associate is entrusted with pairing shoes to your feet, a mentor guides them across the fit and form of every single brand we carry.

Giving Back to Our Community

We believe that a good pair of shoes can be life changing. But we know there are even more ways we can make the world a better place. So far, we have planted over 10,000 trees and collected 25,000 pairs of shoes for those in need. We also encourage our employees to give back by offering them 50% pay and time off for volunteering.

Internationally Curated—Locally Owned

Established in July of 1993 in Old Town Alexandria, Comfort One Shoes started as a local, family-owned business with a single location. Thanks to the incredible support of our customers, we have since expanded across the metro DC area and further into Maryland and Virginia. Our commitment to excellence remains unwavering, and we are delighted to be recognized as an industry leader.

Visit one of our convenient locations and experience the Service, Selection, and Style that's made us the talk of the town. We're excited to welcome you and ensure your feet find their perfect fit while enjoying a touch of elegance and fun. Your happy feet will thank you!

And if you bought from us online -- be sure to tag us in your social posts. We can't wait to see you strut your stuff in your new favorite shoes.
