Red Fox Footwear, a specialty retail shoe store has recently opened its
doors for business at 104 S Leroy St. in downtown Fenton. Many local residents
may remember the new storefront as the site of the former Kirkey Shoes &
Repair. Red Fox Footwear is the brainchild of local entrepreneurs Jesse
Anderson & Nick Brown, who both grew up in Fenton and graduated from the
local high school. "We frequently visited Kirkey Shoes while growing
up," said Jesse, “and we wished to continue the tradition of operating a
local specialty shoe store in Downtown Fenton."
and Nick have over a decade of combined experience in the specialty shoe
business, with a particular focus on custom fittings via gait analysis and
analyzing physiological markers. In a conscious effort to continue the long
standing and respected tradition of Kirkey Shoe’s, Red Fox Footwear will
feature exceptional brands including the legendary Red Wing Shoes & Irish
Setter work shoe and hunting lines. As competitive runners, Jesse And Nick also
wish to incorporate their own fitness background into a brown shoe product mix.
Currently, Red Fox Footwear customers can expect to shop a carefully selected
and well balanced array of brands including New Balance, Merrell, Patagonia,
Adidas Outdoor, On Running, Altra, Timberland, Sperry, and a yet undetermined
running line. The tagline they have used to describe their product mix is
“Fitness – Outdoor – Work – Weekend,” which broadly encapsulates Red Fox’s products’
of the unique benefits of shopping Red Fox Footwear is that they offer their
fitting services to their customers for free. Nick and Jesse contain a
wealth of valuable information on the mechanics of different shoes and how to
find the correct model for a customer’s physiology and planned usage. In addition
to its shoe retail, Red Fox will also stock a selection of fitness and outdoor
apparel, including Adidas and Merrell clothing, Smartwool & Wigwam Socks,
