Surefoot founder and CEO Bob Shay hired PCGA in late 2007 to help the Company explore financing options, with the goal of supporting working capital needs and company expansion, as well as bringing in a strong lending partner.

Bob Shay, co-owner of Surefoot, said the idea to buy the stores had long been in the works. As a runner himself with Surefoot stores located in New York City and Los Angeles, Shay was familiar with both companies before the purchase. Over the last year, Shay spoke with the company owners, corralling them into an agreement.
"We are the largest maker of orthotics in the U.S.," Shay said. "We sell 1,000 or more pairs in a year and some of the biggest sports names come to us, including Lance Armstrong. We had over 70 PGA Tour players use our products, and a number of professional baseball and basketball players. And lots of runners."
While Shay plans to keep the FrontRunners and Super Runners names intact, each location will feature Surefoot customization technology, scanners that help identify the best shoe for each customer. Shay said the company will continue to expand under all three names, growing the company to more than 400 employees. But the expansions will impact Park City the most. The headquarters for Super Runners Shops and FrontRunners will be relocated to Park City, bringing more jobs into the area.
"My brother and I own Surefoot," Shay said, "and while it's fun to come to cities and have stores in these areas with more than 20 million people, we still came from a town of 20,000 people.
"These stores are big businesses," Shay said.
