Lil' Footprints was not just born over night......Our journey begins in Dallas Tx at Sandy's Shoes and Dancewear (1979) and after 7 years at this wonderful family owned shoe store (where a love for the shoe business was started) I moved to Lubbock to go to Texas Tech (1986). Needing to pay rent etc...I searched for a job and was hired at Buster Brown Shchoolhouse in the South Plians Mall. I spent the next 17 years (I did get a degree at Texas Tech!) at Buster Brown fitting kids in shoes and helping making Buster Brown the #1 Childrens' shoe store on the South Plains. Sadly in 2003 the owner of Buster Brown became ill and decided to close the doors after 40 years as the best place in Lubbock to buy kids shoes. With some prompting and much support from family and friends I decided to open Lil' Footprints and continue the legacy that began with the Buster Brown store.
Our goal is to carry the best brands for all your footwear needs and to make sure that your child gets the best shoe for his/her foot. Many adult foot problems begin when we are children with shoes that may not be fit properly or foot problems that are never addressed which can lead to knee, lower back and hip problems as adults.
We have the latest technology in the Aetrex iStep which can be an early detection systems for possible problems and the most accurate foot measuring system available today.
We partner together with parents to provide children with the best fitting shoes possible.
We have a dedicated staff who have all been through extensive training on product knowledge and are familiar with common foot ailments that are common to children. We specialize in feet that are hard to fit by carrying products that come in a variety of sizes and widths.
We know most feet are born perfect and our goal is to make sure they stay that way.
