For the past 100 years, families have trusted Lucky Shoes to provide children’s shoes that fit and are functional, yet fun. And this year, as the kiddos get ready to go back to school, it is no different.

“We fit your little ones in quality footwear that allows them to run, walk and play,” says John Luck, the great-grandson of Lucky Shoes founder Joe Luck.

“As you start shopping for back to school, you may worry about what size notebooks to buy or how many colored pencils your child will need this year. But you can feel confident about the shoes on your children’s feet when fitted by our fit specialists at Lucky Shoes.”
