Our store was born in December of 1996 in a small strip center across the street from the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL. We were very small only carrying a few brands, concentrating on Birkenstock, mostly sandals and clogs at the time. We started seeing the same faces over and over soon realizing we weren't the only ones who truly believed in our quality products. The "down to earth" complete customer service is what we strive for, and it's what brings people back. Our helpful and courteous sales staff don't try to "sell" you shoes, we try to educate you on our footwear, and help you in any way we can. It didn't take long to realize how many smiles we were able to put on people's faces. Within two years, we opened our second location in Tallahassee, FL. Thanks to great customers and exemplary employees, The Walkabout Shop now carries many other comfort shoe companies and soon became North Florida's largest distributor of comfort footwear.
Our staff is completely knowledgeable on all parts of the foot and all aspects of our footwear. We are always willing to help put you in the right shoe to completely fulfill your needs. Our staff is also trained in all areas of foot problems again being able to guide our customers in the right direction to help alleviate any foot pain or discomfort you might have.
Our mission and belief is that good healthy footwear helps to promote a healthy and positive lifestyle. We have only sold quality products and will ALWAYS sell quality products. If there is any way we can help you, PLEASE don't hesitate to call. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
