Jo’s Comfort Zone


Savvy’s feet are killing her. But that doesn’t mean she’s lost the desire to shoehorn her hooves into something beautiful and sophisticated. Of course, when that beauty and sophistication can be combined with comfort, so much the better. And when that comfort can be custom made to her pedi-specs, well, ding ding, we have a winner. Enter Jo’s Comfort Zone, which is worth the trip to Gaithersburg. When you enter, you’ll be greeted by glamour-loving owner and certified pedorthist Jo Ann Epps. She not only stocks all the best comfort brands, but she has an eye for fashion. She can wrangle those Ferragamos that pinch and those Jimmy Choos that have no forefoot padding and even those awful flip-flops that have no arch support and that will wreck your feet and shins over time whether you know it or not. In other words, bring her your tired, your weary shoes so that your feet are no longer yearning to be free. She’ll free them, with a custom fix. She also carries pretty vegan purses, decorative umbrellas and other girlie things. Savvy has her eye on the black leather knee-high boots with lacy laser cutouts by Naot. They’re called “Enjoy.” Boy, would she like to. 118 Market St., Gaithersburg, 301-330-2436
