It seems the days of independently owned children’s shoe stores may be a way of the past. In actuality, there are few stores left that are not a big box or major retailers that carry children’s shoes in their little mom and pop establishments. Most are not just shoe stores but sell other items such as clothes, toys, and home goods for children. That’s great for the parent who likes variety and original designs. Philadelphia has some great shoe stores that sell kids shoes up to age five and offers a variety from sneakers to sandals.
