Shoe Zoo opens in Lake Norman

Anyone who has taken a pack of wee ones on the hunt for new kicks knows it doesn’t exactly amount to retail “therapy.” But Lake Norman’s new children’s shoe hub, Shoe Zoo, hopes to change that.

Life-size trees, grassy shelves, and caged stuffed animals are the backdrop for a bevy of pint-sized shoes. Designer lines include Stuart Weitzman, Jessica Simpson, MK by Michael Kors, UGG, Cole Haan, and Keen, which offer sizes infant through seven from $35 to $100. While you do some sole searching, your tykes are free to explore play stations inspired by tropical rain forests, exotic beaches, and the Serengeti in Africa.
