It's GOTTA Be the Peeps!

We're Good People. For The Most Part.

David “Polka” Pietka


Foot Traffic’s founder and other ownership half is rumored to have jumped over a VW Beetle during his long-jumping heyday at UofO in the 60’s. We think that’s pretty cool.

Sean “Padre” Rivers


Sean likes running, arm wrestling, connecting-the-dots, & practicing his handwriting, although the capital “J” gives him fits–as do any customers that don’t come away 110{2bbc9e8fd58c6d004e99f6e2eb80d376a781cab7572371e7be490e81caee9284} satisfied! Yes, he co-owns Foot Traffic!

Daniel “Gruff” McDuff

GM/Shoe Buyer

General Manager and Footwear Buyer, this Lewis & Clark standout brings vast amounts of running knowledge, computer literacy, and funky fresh rhymes to his loving co-workers at Foot Traffic.

Andrew Warnecke

Accessories Buyer/Sellwood Store Manager

Our commodities buyer is very thorough when making decisions on what to bring into the store. He’s been known to flavor test energy gels submerged under ice cold water, wear water belts while practicing his parallel bar routine.

Fritz Fitzer

Downtown Manager/Run Oregon Gear Buyer

With his long-flowing locks, long legs, and amazing vertical…knee lift, Fritz is the picture of…well, running inefficiency. But he’s superbly adept at providing heaps of footwear and apparel knowledge within a short amount of time!

Jesse Hicks

Cedar Mill Manager


Ben Pelltier

Northeast Co-Manager / Training Director



Denzil Jennings

Northeast Co-Manager / Medical Liaison



Emily “Number Ninja” Rivers


A cold-blooded numbers killer, Emily is MBA, CCCU, & CPR certified. Our lead accountant is equally capable of obliterating numbers while expunging sour moods…and the occasional case of diaper rash at Foot Traffic headquarters.

Jay “Fireball” Schrotzberger

Head coach of the mighty Lions of West Linn, Jay has nearly 10 years of specialty running/walking store experience and was voted by staff as “most likely to succeed!”


Assistant Greeter

Glacier is a recent acquisition whose skills include greeting customers, floor inspection, and napping.

Maeby “Tompkins” Maeby

Therapy Dog

We found Maeby in the shipping container from a major shoe company. We won’t tell you which one, but let’s just say she wasn’t the size we were looking for. She spends her free time being awesome and riding on the MAX by herself.
