My kids have wide feet and no shoes from other stores ever fit right because of this. This store is wonderful and in my opinion has a very good, diverse selection. The staff has always been helpful from the time we walk in the door. They measure our child's foot and bring out what they have in that size, which is usually at minimum 9 pairs (more than I've found in most dept stores). Other than the time our child takes deciding which shoe they like best, we are in and out of the store in less than 15 minutes! I would recommend this store to anyone, and especially those with hard to fit lil feet!!

Terry and staff are the BEST at fitting kids for shoes, hands down. They have a great selection of quality shoes. The store is clean and well maintained. We love Schmitt's Stride Rite!

I went in when they started doing private appointments during COVID and they were great with my wiggly hard to fit at home 1 year old! They were super careful with cleaning and wearing masks! This was my first time in the store and I'll for sure be going back the next time my kids are in need of new shoes! Couldn't have asked for a better experience! They have a great punch card loyalty program as well!

-Jen Rysavy
