Hi there, fellow footwear aficionados!

Welcome to BootMoodFoot. If you’ve landed here, I’m guessing you’re either looking for a pair of new shoes—or need some footwear-related advice.

Firstly, let me tell you a bit about myself and how this all got started. My name is Steve “The Shoe Guy” Thompson. It began way back when I was still in high school, and I experienced my first foray into the wonderful world of footwear. 

I picked up a Saturday job at a local shoe store, assisting customers, making sales, and cataloging merchandise. The nickname quickly followed as my love of shoes developed. I caught on to the intricacies of individual requirements, gained practical knowledge, and I thoroughly enjoyed the work.

It was great discovering which insoles were best suited for specific types of shoes and how to rejuvenate an old pair of kicks. Then there were the various debilitating foot conditions, which could be helped by wearing the right pair of shoes or inserts. 

My career path took a different turn, but my fascination with shoes remained. I can still remember the distinctive smell of new leather, and the satisfaction of matching someone with the perfect shoes for them.

I founded BootMoodFoot so I can share my “Shoe Guy” expertise with you. It could be that you’re looking for some new sneakers or boots, and want a detailed, unbiased review. Maybe you want to spruce up some old shoes, or need to know how to keep new footwear always looking its best.

Whatever your footwear needs, from fitting and sizing to the best type of shoes for a particular hobby or profession—you’re in the right place.

Aside from my passion for shoes, I’m an outdoorsman who loves to spend time in the Florida wild with my wife and two sons.

Naturally, I have a vast collection of sneakers, workboots, dress shoes, and flip flops for all occasions—not to mention all the insoles I’ve purchased over the years.

As a former equestrian—and self-proclaimed shoe addict—I can’t resist a pair of leather boots. 

I’ve been a writer for a few years now, and it’s a big passion of mine. Coming in with a bit of shoe-knowledge, I’ve learned heaps from working with Steve, and hope to learn more in the near future.
