“My life has been changed. I am an active 74 year-old whose enjoyment of life has been greatly curtailed due to horrible foot pain. Then I met Amy at Hawley Lane Shoes! Not only does she know shoes, but she is patient and kind. Thank you Amy for your wonderful knowledge of shoes.”

“Amanda is very nice and professional Certified Therapeutic Shoe fitter. She demonstrated excellent product knowledge. She went the extra mile. I appreciate her dedication. It’s hard to find customer service representatives who really love their job. She is very respectful, her smiles through her mask. She really made my day and I am happy about my selection.”


“I’ve been shopping at Hawley Lane Shoes for many years. I recently had a stroke and lost full control of the right side of my body and had to use a cane, because I was off balance. I’m so glad Joe was able to help me walk without a cane by wearing Kiziks, they were easy to put on. I didn’t realize how bad Skechers are for your feet. Thanks to Joe I can now walk again without any assistance.”

“I was recently diagnosed with MS and hav a very hard time doing anything for myself. I saw your commercials and thought I would give it a shot. When I arrived at your Shelton store a young man was so kind to open the door for me. He then introduced himself (Joe) and asked me what brought me in. He noticed I couldn’t walk very well, and immediately recommended the shoes that were right in front of the store (Kizik & Zeba), that he thought would make me move around better and help with my balance issues. He was so patient with me. I tried a pair on and could not believe how easy they were to put them on and off. I was able to walk much better and knew immediately that they were the right choice for me. Thank you Hawley Lane Shoes, I will be back for more shoes.”

“I was in your Norwalk location on 9/24/21 and was assisted by Ellen. When I explained that I am a diabetic she took extra time and demonstrated extreme patience in answering my questions to find me the quintessential pair of safely fitting sneakers for my feet. She offered suggestions but no heavy sales pressure and I truly feel like it was $260 very well spent. Thank you for employing such caring and dedicated individuals on your team. The wrong pair of shoes could be deadly to a diabetic and Ellen made me feel like I was in the very best hands to assist me on my walking journeys. I’ll definitely be back.”

“I visited the Norwalk store, having foot pain.  I didn’t think I needed to be measured but Veronica however insisted that she needed to measure me to assess my feet. I was wearing 9.5 shoes but measured 10.5/11. Once I got the right size shoe on, my foot pain was gone immediately. I’m so thankful that Veronica had insisted on measuring my feet. I just recently moved from New York and had never had an experience like that, and I will be back.”

“It is not often in this fast paced world of ours that I have the opportunity to say thank you for a job well done. During our visit of February 26, 2021, we arrived hoping to find proper shoes for my wife. We met Matt jones who began with a walking analysis and listened to her problem. He also spent the time necessary to explain why the New Balance 847 was the best fit for her, and provided excellent information on the selection of the correct type of shoe for her.

Matt was very respectful, courteous and patient, which was greatly appreciated. We definitely plan to visit Matt for future shoe purchases.

Again, thanks for resolving one of life’s problems.”
