Mike Nielsen Certified Pedorthist

We are pleased to welcome Mike Nielsen, Certified Orthotist at Benders

If you are struggling with Flat Feet, High Arches, Plantar Fasciitis, Diabetes, Neuropathy, Bunions and/or Metatarsal Pain, Mike is available to evaluate and assist you with a variety of shoes and over-the-counter orthotics. There is no charge for an Advanced Foot Evaluation which is done in person in our store. You may schedule an appointment online, stop in, or call. Mike is available at all three Benders locations: Grand Rapids, Hibbing and Duluth. As a Certified Orthotist, Mike has chosen to focus his patient care on pedorthics: the function and anatomy of the foot. He has specialized training to modify footwear and employ supportive devices to address conditions which affect the feet and lower limbs. They are an extension of the medical profession, not medical doctors, and will not diagnose.

Shoes, Clothing, Women’s Fashions and Accessories

Have you ever stopped in to our downtown Hibbing location? If not, you’re missing out. If you have, you’re sure to know that it is a pleasant and unique experience. In the Hibbing Benders you will find top quality shoes, boots, and sandals for all ages. We offer footwear from around the world for men, women, and children. Some of our most popular brands include: Rieker, Dansko, Birkenstock, Keen, Merrell, New Balance, and SO many more!

Not only does the Benders Hibbing store have amazing shoes, we also offer many different brands of stylish clothing – also for men and women. Brands such as Kuhl, The North Face, Columbia, Tribal, and Billabong are among the most popular. The Hibbing staff loves helping customers put together an entire outfit – from head to toe. We sell many accessories to accent or dress up an outfit. Oh, and don’t forget about the shoes – we have plenty of options in that department!

Our Hibbing employees take pride in providing customers with top-notch customer service.

We love to greet customers upon arrival to let them know they are welcome in our store and we are excited to have them shopping with us. We offer a “sit & fit” experience and our employees are properly trained to fit each shoe to the uniqueness of every foot – while you get to sit and relax. We will even tie your shoes for you!

Some of the exciting features offered in our Hibbing store are the casual clothing brand “Life is Good” and our one-of-a-kind iron range t-shirts. Life is Good is a brand that our Hibbing store has been carrying for many years. It has been a hit around the area, since we are the only store in the Hibbing to carry this brand. Our Iron Range t-shirts have also been very popular. We carry multiple colors in a t-shirt and sweatshirt style. If you’re proud of living on “The Range,” this is the shirt for you!
