About Us

Turnpikeshoes.com is a subsidiary of Turnpike Comfort Footwear.

Turnpike Comfort Footwear was established in 1979 by two men committed to becoming the New York City area’s premier comfort and orthopedic shoe facility. Each of the founding partners brought with them a long history in the shoe business. Jerome Sternberg came from a family of shoe store operators, with stores dating back to the early 1900’s. Ernesto Rueda was a second gereration custom shoe maker serving the Queens area for over 40 years. The experience the two brought to the store made it unlike any other. Clients not only received the attention of one of the most experienced shoe fitters in the city, but also had access to the best custom work available right on the premises. The store was an instant success.

Today, run by Ernesto’s two sons, Turnpike Comfort Footwear continues the tradition of dedicated, ethical service started over two decades ago. The store remains the only Pedorthic Footwear Association fully accredited facility in Queens and Long Island, New York and keeps Board Certified Pedorthists on staff. Besides offering all the services of a traditional orthopedic shoe store, the store also offers a huge selection of the world’s most popular and most comfortable footwear brands. Whether you need special orthopedic shoes and modifications, or just a comfortable pair of walking or dress shoes, there is no more qualified store in the area.

Turnpikeshoes.com wants to bring this vast experience and kownledge to your on-line shoe shopping. We travel the world in search of the best comfort, dress, athletic and life style footwear for you. We’ve done all the research and the test fitting so that you know any product offered on this web site is the best available from the most popular brands already in the U.S.A. and brands we’ve imported ourselves.
