Cute shoes for kids is not a new concept, but Purple Reign’s introduction of the pricey Oilily, Minibell and Naturino brands to this Harlem neighborhood initially met with resistance. Word-of-mouth, though, has slowly earned this shop a following. Now some moms make the trek uptown just to check out the diverse offerings, from summer sandals to winter boots. They peruse children’s fur-lined and ladybug-patterned rain boots and matching coats, while their kids watch cartoons on the flat-screen TV or play in the store’s purple velvet drapes. And purchased Umi clogs, gold Primigi Maryjane’s, and funky Geox trainers help turn many a child into a fledgling shoe fanatic.
