A Family Business

When shopping for footwear for our then toddler son, we had trouble finding one location that provided both a knowledgeable sales staff and multiple brands under one roof.  A great “Sit and Fit” store was desperately needed that provided both a friendly and well trained sales staff with a hands on approach.

Walking Tots was born in late 2012 while sitting around the kitchen table.  We decided to put together a multi-branded children’s shoe store focusing on the best shoes, by the best brands for little ones in the market.  The main goal being stellar customer service and accurate fitting to keep the customers and their “Walking Tots” coming back for more.  We both believe that independent business owners are the back-bone of America, and we love that The Woodlands families support local businesses as well. We love when we are out and about and have customers come up to us to say hi; it makes this big city feel like such an amazing community.

Mark brings to the table more than 25 years in both the retail and wholesale footwear market starting in college in Austin and continuing to work for various brands on the wholesale side of the business for the last decade.  Kay brings her expertise in marketing, love of fashion and design and most importantly, love of children.

Together we hope that you will let us grow with you and your tots from infancy and beyond as your children’s shoe store.
