Why is a shoe store sole important to tourists?

Because when you are doing, exactly what you're doing right now, which may possibly be half of what many people do all day at work, sitting at a desk, in an office, protected from actual sunshine, only to drive home to sit for the rest of the day, which is why you really need a vacation and before your heart forgets why it's beating, you simply can't fully appreciate how worn your shoes have become.


When you get here, and start walking around Indiana's Madison Historic District, you'll start to realize the old shoes have lost all the bounce they ever thought about having. Hertz will be here, calling out to your aching feet.

Rescue feet 911

And your feet will respond, without even thinking about it, by walking you right up to their front door, and straight to the nearest bench where you can sit down. Don't worry, just let the friendly people here know that your feet are on fire and you can't even walk to the shoe rack, and they'll bring shoes over to you to try on.


Public Safety Warning:

Walking too far in in old shoes may (or may not) cause your feet to actually fall off. Some people think it's just an old urban legend, but ask two stubs Joe, he'll tell ya! P.S. Joe actually lost his feet in a terrible bunji jumping accident, when the bunji cord was replaced with ordinary rope with no stretchy bounce to it, which lead to the Bunji Jumping Act of '47 (Yes, I'm still joking).

After taking your first step in a new pair of shoes, and realizing you can't tell if you are actually floating on air or having a stroke because the endorphins have kicked in and you can't feel the hard floor anymore, you'll send me a thank you letter for saving your feet from amputation. But really the accolades belong to Hertz Shoe store, for being in the right place at the right time, when you couldn't take not even one more step.

They also carry other walking around accessories, like hand bags, and those waist/fanny packs.

If you have questions for someone who knows what they are talking about when it comes to shoes, just call the phone number at the top of this page, and ask the professionals at Hertz Shoes.
