Back to School Kicks Off at The Kids Barn!

Although there’s still plenty of summer left, many schools start back up at the end of August these days. A new pair of shoes are always #1 on every kids’ Back to School list! We’ve rolled up our sleeves here at The Kids Barn, and are ready to help you get your kids back to school in style and comfort. Our store is literally teeming with over 30 different top quality name brands and thousands of styles by such shoe super stars as New Balance, Nike, Adidas, and See Kai Run. Let our friendly and knowledgable sales staff help your child find just the right pair of shoes or sneakers to put the cool into going back to school!

We carry a complete collection of premium footwear styles for women, men, and kids. Did you know that fifty percent of adults buy the wrong size shoe, due to the fact that our feet continue to change even as we get older? Yet we continue to buy the same size. So, if you’re shopping for back to school shoes for your kids, why not come in and get properly fitted by our expert and friendly sales staff to find the perfect pair of shoes for you? Trucks are arriving daily that are loaded with the latest styles and sizes from some of the best shoe makers in the world. Whether you’re angling for a new pair of work shoes, or cool back to school sneakers or shoes for kids, The Barn is worth the trip to find the perfect fitting shoe. Check out our award-winning shoe store that has withstood the test of time by offering extraordinary quality paired with unparalleled service. As a customer once said, “If your body is a temple, then the shoes you put on your feet are the foundation of that temple.” Shoes matter. So do your feet. We look forward to helping you make sure you find the shoes that you’ll love.

The Barn Family Shoe Store is a family owned and operated shoe store– and has been for over 60 years. We’ve earned our reputation as the region’s award-winning shoe store for 10 years in a row for three simple reasons: we buy only the highest quality and most comfortable brands; we offer competitive pricing; and we provide outstanding customer service. We hope to show you why we’ve been named the #1 shoe store in the region for ten years running. Your feet will thank you for it.
