A Lifelong Tradition…

Anthony and Michele Sgro, owners of The Shoe Horn, Inc, have been specializing in foot comfort and protection ever since they opened their store in 1986. Most people don’t think about their feet until they hurt. And most people don’t think about protecting their feet until they are injured.
Luckily, for the greater Akron, Ohio area, Certified Pedorthist Anthony Sgro is not most people. Well credentialed in his vocation, Anthony holds a degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin in Pedorthics and certification in pedorthics from the Board of Certification in Pedorthics in Seattle, WA.

What is Pedorthics?

Pedorthics is the management and treatment of conditions of the foot, ankle, and lower extremities requiring fitting, fabricating, and adjusting of pedorthic devices. It is a well-established allied health profession which makes an invaluable contribution to public health. A pedorthist can fit and dispense diabetic footwear and assist his customers in their medical billing process.

The Shoe Horn is also a Medicare Part B provider, as well as Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Aetna and Medical Mutual of Ohio.In addition, we are a Worker’s Comp. provider.

Anthony and his staff fit and dispense footwear according to physician’s prescriptions. We can modify footwear for our customers that may need elevations, flares, stabilizers and custom foot orthotics. It is one of the many ways The Shoe Horn remains true to our company’s philosophy: “We Fit with Care.” We truly listen to our customers and strive to provide excellent and personalized customer service.
We invite you to come in and experience first hand our great care for your feet!

Having worked in my father’s shoe repair store since I was 11 years old, my experience in the shoe business is nearly lifelong. I would work every day after school until closing, learning the trade from the best known shoemaker and the best teacher…Vincent Sgro from Bronte, Sicily…my dad.
