The SHOE SCIENCE team members are all passionate about sport, footwear, and helping people improve their lives through fitness.
Common across the group is a desire to push forward into new product concepts, and to help our customers achieve a good life balance. While we are - 'shoe geeks', we are probably more 'life balance, geeks'. What really makes us buzz, are customers telling us, they are in a good fitness groove, and it is helping their whole life.

MIKE GRAHAM - ALBANY & TAKAPUNA FRANCHISE STORES
Mike is the owner of the Albany and Takapuna stores and is a SHOE SCIENCE original, starting with the company soon after it started in 1994. Mike's sporting passion was playing football, and Liverpool is his team. Unfortunately, football was not easy on Mike's knees and hence he is now primarily a gym guy. Mike is a real student of - running and walking.
CRAIG TAYLOR - FRANCHISE COMPANY
Craig - me. I own and operate the franchise company. I studied and practiced sports podiatry before moving to footwear.
On the work front. I am keenly interested in product innovation, advancing the fit process and providing a worthy brand platform for the store owners.
The SHOE SCIENCE vision is to move forward with Online and physical stores because we believe in both. Our Online store offers amazing convenience from anywhere and the physical stores offer the best human experience. We are evolving into a new iteration of retail that blends Online with family-owned physical stores.
On the exercise front. I have run for years and am still learning what works for me. A recent lesson learned is losing several Kgs via running, bike sprint classes, and diet adjustments. And the answer was not more running miles.
