About Us

The Barn Shoes

Styles change, but not our Service.

For more than 70 years, The Barn Shoes has been one of New England’s leading retailers in men’s footwear, women’s footwear, kid’s footwear, sneakers, and accessories. Today, The Barn Shoes offers one of the widest selections of popular brands and styles and a unique level of personal service that the big-box and chain shoe stores can’t match. Our staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and dedicated to helping you find the right pair of shoes, boots, sneakers, or sandals that fit your style7


Service and selection have always been a part of The Barn Shoes Experience. We offer one of the broadest selections of brand-name men’s footwear, women’s footwear, and kids shoes and sneakers in all New England. It’s important for us to stock the brands and styles that our customers trust – Keen, Johnson & Murphy, Sperry, and Sorel, to name a few. But we also take great pride in helping our customers discover some of their new favorites such as Acorn, Olukai, and Hoka


Being a good neighbor is important, and The Barn Shoes has always been a vibrant part of the Newton community.

From the first day of school to a new job to a wedding day to remember – we have been the shoe store of Newton families have trusted for generations.

With our new store in Newtonville and our new website, we hope to expand our community and bring The Barn Shoe Experience to a new generation of shoppers. We have brought our traditional values of quality and customer service with us into our new 8,500 square-foot location that offers customers a clean, bright, and modern shopping experience that rivals high-end retailers anywhere in Boston.


As one of the largest and last family-owned and operated shoe stores in New England, The Barn Shoes views all our staff like family. Everyone on our team is dedicated to ensuring that you are well-taken care of from the moment you step through the door or click onto our website.

 We have a tight-knit staff, promote from within, and very little turnover. This means that everyone from our floor associates to our senior management is knowledgeable, friendly and 100 percent dedicated to living up to our motto and delivering “affordable prices with priceless service.”

Experience the Difference

The Barn Shoes Experience has been well known to our customers in the greater Newton community for more than seven decades. Unmatched personal service, knowledgeable and helpful employees, and a selection of in-stock brands and styles have been our hallmark. 


There is no substitute for trying on a pair of shoes with an experienced associate who knows you as well as they know their products – we constantly strive to deliver this level of service to every one of our customers. That is a commitment we want to honor to both our customers and our legacy.
