Third Generation

Fred Chiappetta

Fred is the third generation owner of Chiappetta Shoes. Fred received his certification in pedorthics from Northwestern University in 1986, after graduating from St. Ambros University in Iowa. Fitting shoes since he was a kid, Fred has honed his skills to address foot issues with a savage precision. Fred got in at the ground floor of American Pedorthics, starting in the early '80s when newer materials like memory cushion and foam rubbers were readily available for manufacturing custom inserts. From Fred's original education, Chiappetta Shoes still manufactures custom orthotics with an "accommodative" philosophy, leading the way for happy customers and extremely happy feet.

Fourth Generation

Tony Chiappetta

Following in the family footsteps, Tony is the fourth generation at Chiappetta Shoes. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with degrees in marketing and Italian, Tony's dream has always been to run an exceptional shoe store. Realizing that pedorthics is the best possible customer service a shoe store could offer, he enrolled in Northwestern University's Pedorthic program for certification. With an analytical mindset, Tony looks to improve the practice of custom orthotics through advancements in technology, material, and process.

Chiappetta's philosophy towards Pedorthic care is simple. Accommodate the foot to reduce pain, relieve pressure and restore health.

Most footwear on the market does not offer significant contour or support. With a focus on comfort and common sense, your accommodative orthotics will provide a basic balance underneath your feet, solving many painful problems. We refer to this as "Bringing the ground up to the feet."

getting the right fit

We take the time needed to make sure that your new orthotics are measured, constructed, and fit properly to your feet. We don't ship our work out of state or out of the country. All of our work is done in-house by our certified pedorthic team.

While we understand you are anxious to alleviate your foot pain, the process from foot assessment to in-store delivery may take three-to-four weeks. We appreciate your patience as we work to provide you an exceptional product.


Orthotics are guaranteed for 3 years and are built to last for 5-7 years. However, if you experience a significant injury or a 20% weight gain, we recommend getting a new cast to accommodate your body's changes.
