Since opening in 2002, soléa has grown to become Ottawa’s premier retailer of fine comfort footwear, realizing our heartfelt belief that healthy and beautiful footwear contributes to happiness and well-being.
We’re Very Selective
To this end, we are very selective in what we carry. soléa stocks footwear that is not only good for you, but looks good on you too. soléa carries lines that provide comfort and style, and others that provide full therapeutic benefits – often both at once! Our footwear encourages healthy walking habits and refreshes the feet. Lines such as Birkenstock, Dansko, El Naturalista, Finn Comfort, Lowa, Mephisto, and Aetrex meet this criteria.
We also offer Ottawa’s largest selection of orthotic-friendly footwear and an excellent selection of footwear in sizes and widths for those with difficult to fit feet.
We Employ Expert Fitters
soléa is committed to serving our customers the way we would want to be served. Our team of dedicated fitting professionals makes sure that you’ll be fitted with the healthiest and most comfortable footwear possible.
To ensure professional, competent customer service, our employees work in association with Derek Gilmer, C. Ped. (C)., C. Ped. Tech. In 2001, soléa was Ottawa’s first footwear retailer to provide complete clinical pedorthic services and we are pleased to offer this service of Derek’s for the benefit of our customers and staff. In fact, our employees at soléa undergo continuous training by Derek in addition to receiving the latest product knowledge training by footwear manufacturers’ representatives and by attending development courses in professional footwear fitting.
