The First Birkenstock store in the USA, selling Birkenstock sandals since 1973. M.J. Feet carries the brands Papillio, Birki, Birkenstock Classics, and Footprints, with over 200 styles of Birkenstock Sandals, Birkenstock Footprint Shoes, and Birkenstock clogs in stock for men, women, and children. M.J. Feet has provided foot comfort for generations of grateful feet.
Melanie Grimes, owner of M.J. Feet, fell in love with her first pair of Birkenstocks while working as a waitress at the age of 19 and shortly after began selling the shoes out of her closet while attending school. At 23, Grimes opened shop in the back of a health food store with 78 pairs of Birkenstock shoes.
M.J. Feet's first store is still located in it's original spot in the University District next to the University Bookstore.
