What can I say about Lou’s Bootery that I haven’t already said before? First off, this locally-owned business has been around for decades, first in downtown Green Bay and now out in Suamico near Olsen’s Piggly Wiggly and Festival Foods.
Under new ownership this year, you’ll still find the same great quality shoes that Lou’s is known for: Stride Rite, Roobeez, Kamik, Keen and more.
While it may not seem thrifty to spend a lot of money on kids shoes since they grow out of them so quickly, many studies have shown that properly fitting shoes when kids are growing can help prevent the myriad of health problems in adult life like plantar fascitis. And trust me, you do not want that to develop in anyone’s feet. It hurts–a lot. Trust me on this one.
I always take my kids to Lou’s Bootery to buy them the shoes they will wear the most before the next growth spurt. A proper fitting shoe is very important to me, much more than if I can get a pair for $5 at the thrift store. Not saying I don’t buy gently used shoes or shoes from Target, but the main shoes that my kids wear come from Lou’s Bootery. The brands like Stride Rite and Pediped use state-of-the-art technology, are super light-weight (who wants their kids in heavy shoes when they’re walking and clumsy with growth spurts), and they’re fashionable, too. I just LOVE the shoes pictured; my two younger girls have them in different colors and sizes.

Louis Weinstein founded Lou’s Bootery in 1948. He and his son Tom operated the children’s shoe store in downtown Green Bay until they sold the business to Stephanie Wijas several years ago. The store has been on Lineville Road in Howard since 2008.
Wijas closed the store earlier this summer.
There is a chance that the store will re-open sooner if they get their stock of shoes in earlier! We’ll keep you posted.

The sign posted on the door of the store hinted that Lou’s may re-open under new ownership and in the same location. Green Bay Consumer will keep you posted!
Steph, my kids and I will certainly miss you at the store. Good luck to you and yours!
