Faux-grass floors, leaf-print display shelves, a sunburst chandelier, and a pet lizard in a cage near the cash register announce this children’s footwear store as kid-friendly territory. Owners and Manhattan moms Mary McFadden and Alsun Keogh stock their intimate spot with hip, high-quality shoes for ages newborn to 8, and donate a portion of their proceeds to green-minded organizations. Ecofriendly brands like Naturino Simple Shoes share shelf space with itty-bitty Chuck Taylors from Converse, chic leather boots for both boys and girls by Bopy, and rugged, waterproof sneakers from Geox. Green ottomans and a white wooden bench in the middle of the space add to the natural vibe and offer plenty of places for kids to try on shoes—or for weary parents to rest.
