Ptarmigan Sports is an outdoor lover’s dream come true. Walk into the store and you’ll be drawn to the extensive shoe selection. The wall is bedazzled with shoes of every sort — hiking boots, running shoes, water shoes, clogs that are as sensible as they are fashionable, cozy boots, stylish boots … the list goes on. It’s not by happenstance. The owners are selective in their offerings, making sure that the shoes can withstand whereever the feet go. The sales team knows their stuff, taking the time with each customer to make sure they find a shoe that fits well and performs even better. If something happens to not be in stock, they are happy to order it so you can be out enjoying the great outdoors, in the stylish and comfortable footwear.
