Though some would beg to differ, we all must wear shoes at some time. Sport shoes, ortho shoes, fancy shoes or just plain flip-flops, you can probably find something in town! And with the high cost of living in Davis, where's a body to get one's shoes re-soled? We've got a few options, but most generally come highly recommended, so don't sweat the drive to Sacramento or Woodland. If you're really at the low end of the pay scale, consider our thrift stores or dumpster diving. In any case, get shod locally!

Does anyone know which places carry large shoe sizes? My wife is six feet tall, and most places seem not to carry anything over size 9 or 10 (she's size 11). —TomGarberson
