Tracy and Gregg Curwin are proud business owners of Oh My Sole! Footwear & Orthotics, a locally owned and operated family footwear store in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Tracy is a Halifax native having grown up in Fairview and Gregg, originally from New Brunswick found his roots here while attending Saint Mary’s University. Gregg, being the entrepreneur in family, developed the concept of Oh My Sole! due to the need of pedorthic patients (and their physicians) who required speciality footwear and solutions to support their pain and mobility issues. And so in the mid-1990’s Oh My Sole! was born and began as part of Curwin Health & Sport at the Lord Nelson Hotel. Today, Oh My Sole! is a combined location offering you one stop shopping for footwear, orthotics, bracing and compression therapy needs. Oh My Sole! Footwear and Orthotics is recognized as the market leader for fashionable foot pain and mobility solutions in the city and the region. As a local business, Oh My Sole! understands and values the importance of giving back to the community. We are grateful that our customers have been so generous with their donations to our ‘Shoes for the Shoeless’ program. For this program we invite customers to drop off shoes they no longer wear so we can recycle them to someone in need of new footwear. We are proud that this program not only supports those in need but also helps reduce waste in our landfills. Thanks to your donations over the years we have made some less fortunate people very happy.
Over the years, we have been fortunate enough to have employed some wonderful staff and pride ourselves in pursuing the proper “fit” when hiring. There have been many young adults work their way through university while selling shoes on a part time basis and they still take time to drop in or contact us. As business owners, and parents it’s very rewarding to see how successful some of these kids have become. As a local business, and as a family we support a variety of different charities and foundations within our community. Having two teenage girls we have been very involved over the years with various sports teams, dance clubs, theatre schools, and general school fundraising events. We believe in keeping kids active and allowing all kids to have the opportunity to play organized sports as there are many benefits on and off the court. We appreciate our loyal customers and are happy to give back to the very communities that support us as a local business. Thank you for your continued support! Regards, Tracy Curwin Business Owner
