Why did they create UFS?
Dr. Greg Morris opened The Ultimate Foot Store with his business partner, David Griffith, to help better serve his patients and others suffering from foot pain. Over the past 10 years, practicing podiatry here in Hawaii, he has had countless patients bring bags of so called “cures” they have bought to alleviate their foot ailments. He wanted to design a store that would provide top quality foot products, with expert advice and service. All of the products at The Ultimate Foot Store have been selected by Dr. Morris, and most carry the seal of approval from the American Podiatric Medical Association. His business partner, David Griffith, has over 35 years of experience in the medical field, managing medical practices and clinics. Mr. Griffith is an elite triathlete and has contributed to selecting and testing our sports medicine products.

Christopher’s first job, back in high school, was at a Thom Mcan shoe store. Little did he know that years later he would come full circle when he and his father went into business together selling Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear in Kilohana Square at the top of Kapahulu Avenue. Christopher sold Z-CoiLs for 6 years, during which he learned more about foot pain issues and how the proper fit can help his customers foot pain . Regretfully, the business was unable to survive during the most recent recession. Now, Christopher is happy to return to helping people with foot pain at The Ultimate Foot Store at WardWarehouse.
