Frank has been footwear retailing in Colac for nearly 40 years, beginning as a junior at Whites Shoes in the very shop he works from now.
After a stint as manager of the Medicare office. Frank and Jo opened Franjo Footwear a family footwear store, which we operated for 15 years. Frank went on and studied Reflexology in 1999, while treating clients, many asked if he trimmed toe nails, as there was a shortage of Podiatrists at the time, as syncronisoty would have it, a flyer arrived which offered a new course for Reflexologists to expand their practice, Frank completed Foot and Hand Course in 2006, and the Foot Man was born. It became very obvious early on the many foot problems were being caused by ill fitting, overworn and simply poor quality footwear.
So Frank searched for high quality, specialised footwear which offered support, stability, arch supports, wide and deeper shoes for hard to fit, problem feet, but with a real fashion edge.
The business has expanded exponentially now stocking over 2,000 pair of shoes, with leading world renowned brands like Frankie 4, Homyped, Rockport, Vionic Revere, Keen, Propet, Florsheim,Scholl and Dr Comfort.
The Foot Man has highly trained shoe fitters which will ensure the customer receives the absolute correct fit for posture and gait everytime.
