If you have ever shopped at one of our stores, you would know how much we value house shoes! So often, feet are neglected at the end of the day. You come home from a long day of work, kick your shoes off, and go on with your nightly duties around the house, barefoot or in a pair of socks. This is the time during the day when your feet need the most love. They have carried you through your workday in dress shoes, heels, or work boots and they are feeling sore and fatigued. Slipping into a recovery shoe, a supportive slipper, or a pair of orthopedic flip-flops will make your feet, knees, hips, and back feel relieved and ready to take on the next day.
With the stay-at-home order in place in our country, we as a collective are spending all our hours inside our homes. This does not mean that we can afford to neglect our feet. Below I have some tips and recommendations for you!
We will continue posting informational posts on our social media pages and sneak peaks of new spring product that you can add to your wish list! A number of fabulous spring and summer styles have already arrived, and our shoe experts are excited to help you find the right pair or sandals!
Stay home and stay healthy!
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak in King County, I wanted to share some safety tips for shoe shopping!
1. Choose your shopping hours wisely. If you want to miss the crowd, come shop during the slower hours of the day which are in the afternoon. Since we are currently operating on our temporary hours, come shop between 2pm and 6pm!
2. If you have a specific style in mind, give our sales team a call beforehand to see if we have your size in stock. You can reach us at 253-277-0751.
3. Let us shop for you! If you have an idea of what you are looking for during your shopping trip, call our shoe experts to set aside a selection of great option per your preferences! This will cut down the time that you must shop in store.
4. Practice social distancing by putting on your own shoes while trying on your favorite styles. Our sales team is more than happy to assist you in trying on footwear. Please let them know your preferences beforehand.
5. Use Apple Pay or the “tap” function to bypass the use of the pin pad machine.
6. When entering or exiting the store, use a tissue to push open the door.
Our team is working vigilantly to keep the entire store sanitized and germ free for our most vulnerable customers.
Hello, my fellow shoe lovers!
We are very excited about a new brand that we are carrying at Gentry’s Footwear, Mephisto. This European comfort brand has a long history, dating back to 1965 in Sarrebourg, France. The founder of Mephisto, Mr. Michael Michaeli, strived to create the World’s Finest Footwear. Needless to say, he has succeeded. Mephisto footwear features several qualities that outshine many footwear brands including premium leathers and materials, Soft-Air technology, and a construction that lasts for the long run.
Mephisto’s Soft-Air technology system is the core of their footwear. This system minimizes shock while walking, resulting in reduced pressure on the joints and the spine. Mephisto footwear provides a healthy environment for your feet, allowing for all day comfort.
We are currently carrying a variety of Mephisto sandals and look forward to you experiencing the worlds finest footwear!

Welcome to the Gentry’s Footwear blog! I wanted to introduce myself and tell you a little bit about our stores. My name is Gabby, and in 2016 my husband and I opened our first footwear store near Covington, WA. Since then, we have expanded our stores to Kent Station and Point Ruston. These stores will be open in 2020! Our goal at Gentry’s Footwear is to offer the community an exceptional selection of quality and comfortable footwear, along with great customer service. Our staff provides every customer with personal shoe and orthotic fittings. While the bulk of our shoes can accommodate foot disorders such as plantar fasciitis, bunions, and foot fatigue, it is important to us to incorporate fashion into the selection. Brands such as Ecco, Taos Footwear, Dansko, and Vionic are constantly adapting to current fashion trends. Come check out what we have to offer!
