Happy Feet Children's Footwear in Millburn-Short Hills is a Perfect Fit

When I heard about the new children’s shoe store Happy Feet Children’s Footwear opening at 514 Millburn Road in Short Hills, I was overjoyed to have a new local place to do my kids back to school shoe shopping.

Happy Feet Store

The store has a great modern look and feel, and stocks tons of top brands like Saucony, Lelli Kelly, Emu and See Kai Run. There are lots of footwear options for babies, toddlers and kids as well as an extensive selection of socks, hair accessories, rain gear, and perfect gifts for birthday parties.

And the store’s owner, Cataldo Urso (a resident of South Orange), is extremely knowledgeable, helpful and I should add, patient.

In addition to the initial visit to Happy Feet when I bought shoes for seven-year-old daughter and my three-year-old son, I also returned a few days later because my son had decided his shoes were – as he put it – “not comfy.”

While Cataldo was more than willing to have the shoes returned, my son then had second thoughts about getting a different pair of shoes. Cataldo had an incredibly long, and did I mention patient, conversation with my son has he engaged in a classic irrational discussion with a toddler about what exactly was making the shoes “not comfy.”

We left with the same shoes, which have been worn happily ever since, pictured below. My daughter has loved her sparkly shoes and socks since she got them, also pictured below.

I highly recommend a visit to Happy Feet for a great shopping experience – now if someone can just keep my kids from saying “I can’t find my shoes!” every morning when it’s time to go to school.
