Alan's stores have always been environments where people of all ages can come in to sit, have their feet measured, and be personally fit for footwear, socks, insoles, and other items that match not only the fit, but also the form and function they are looking for. From narrow through 6E widths, Alan's offers the largest selection of sizes and styles available in the Greater Tucson area.
