Sole Sensations was founded in 2001 by Dr. Ray Stidd and is located at 414 S. College Ave, next to Furniture Exchange. Its original location was on Indiana Avenue, across from the Indiana University Law School. In 2005, Sole Sensations moved to 115 E. 2nd Street, next to Gold Casters Jewelry.

Sole Senations is a unique shoe store. It specializes in European comfort shoes, carrying brands like Finn Comfort, Dansko, Naot, Birkenstock, Earth, BeautiFeel, and Keen. These shoes are made with excellent support. Many come with removable footbeds that will accomodate an orthotic, and many shoes can be adjusted for a custom fit by the expert staff. Sole Sensations is also known for its ability to fit odd sizes, carrying a variety of widths and lengths.
Sole Sensations is the only shoe store in Indiana that has its own orthotic lab. Dr. Ray Stidd, a retired podiatrist, with over 35 years experience, founded Foot Physicians Laboratories in 1962. The lab builds custom orthotics created from a cast mold impression of the customer's foot, made to last between 5 and 7 years. Orthotics are made by appointment only.
Sole Sensations participates in the Medicare Diabetic Shoe Program, which entitles qualified diabetic customers who are on Medicare to one free pair of diabetic shoes per calendar year. For diabetic customers who are not on Medicare, Sole Sensations offers a selection of diabetic shoes, carrying brands such as Dr. Comfort and Aetrex.
Sole Sensations is a Certified Birkenstock Repair Center and can replace the cork footbed and outsoles of any Birkenstock Sandal. This process can prolong the life of your favorite pair of Birkenstocks.
The staff at Sole Sensations has been trained to reccomend and fit shoes skillfully. Each customer is sized and patiently waited on until the proper shoe is selected for the customer's needs. The staff is friendly, courteous, and seeks to provide a service to customers.
"Because each foot is unique and different, we measure and fit to make it right."- Ray Stidd, D.P.M.
