Shoe-Zam first opened in Bismarck in 2000. The locally owned business started out small in Kirkwood Mall, a venture born of owner Connie and Bob Lundin’s love for peerless customer service and world-class apparel. Those passions proved a potent combination, and so Shoe-Zam celebrated their move to a new location in Mandan last year. The store now stands as the area’s premier destination for shoe shopping.

Shoe-Zam’s commitment to their shoppers isn’t limited to friendly smiles and a welcoming, comfortable setting for the all-important task of picking the perfect new pair of shoes. Their staff possess a knowledge of footwear that’s all too hard to find at shoe stores nowadays. They go the extra mile to ensure that your next pair of shoes will fit as though they were made solely with you in mind, and will carefully measure your feet to do so. For this reason Shoe-Zam has become very popular for people with foot issues, as well as those who wear hard to find sizes.

Shoe-Zam’s vast selection of fine footwear, much of it European, makes them the ones to visit no matter the occasion you’re shopping for. They proudly offer shoes by Birkenstock, Haflinger, Naot, New Balance, and SAS, to name a few. Shoe-Zam is especially proud to offer apparel by Earth, a company in Massachusetts that utilizes environmentally sustainable practices to make bohemian yet elegant footwear. Earth’s shoes must be worn to be truly appreciated — their proprietary Powerpath Footbed Technology combines unique foams which at once absorb shock, support the arches, and propel feet forward in stride to provide indescribable comfort.

Shoe-Zam’s footwear by Dansko has become exceptionally popular among the community. The company found their original inspiration in the Dutch clog, which they have reimagined with more modern materials and styles to provide comfort that’s as welcome at the workplace as it is while simply going about town. Nurses who must cover miles every shift have especially gravitated toward Dansko, as have waitresses who appreciate their slip resistant line of shoes. With sandals, heels, wedges, and flats to choose from as well, Dansko provides a chic addition to any style or wardrobe.

Another of the top lines of footwear at Shoe-Zam is Rieker-Remonte. Founded in Germany in 1874, it is one of the most popular brands in all of Europe. Rieker-Remonte’s “Antistress” design makes theirs some of the most comfortable shoes to be found, but not at the expense of style.

Shoe-Zam is thrilled to offer something for every member of the Bismarck-Mandan community, and invites you to peruse their selection today. They are located in suite 105 of the Memorial Square Center at 4524 Memorial Hwy in Mandan. They are open Monday through Saturday from 10:00am until 6:00pm, and are available during business hours at (701) 222-1393. Be certain to bring this copy of Shop.Dine.Live.
