Our History

Originally founded in 1945 as Jordan's Shoe Store, Charles Panza established Panza Shoe to provide shoes in all widths and sizes, catering to customers with hard-to-fit feet. Settled in downtown Framingham, Massachusetts with major interstate highways nearby, Panza Shoe has flourished for over 60 years as a highly accessible specialty and fashion shoe store.

Current owner Richard Panza -- son of the original owner -- maintains his father's vision: “We cater to hard-to-find sizes and that’s our forte. If people want to be fitted to a pair of shoes, we can do it, ” says Richard Panza. He attributes Panza's long success to quality products, experienced staff, and an emphasis on customer satisfaction.

With women's shoe sizes 4 to 14 in all widths, and men’s shoe sizes 6 to 16 in all widths, Panza Shoe has a strong reputation for fitting comfort shoes, as well as the latest fashion shoe styles for all clients. Panza shoe is a place where customers’ feet still get measured. Richard Panza says, “A lot of people are out there wearing the wrong size shoe and they don’t know what their problem is. It’s the same as an optician: you've got to be sized up for glasses and it’s the same thing with shoes.”
