Abbeville Shopping

  • by benmaxwell Written Sep 10, 2004

    Tiny shoeshop run by a real expert on children's feet who is unbeatably enthusiastic and helpful. Our daughter had two club feet and we have visited a great many shoeshops in the US, England and elsewhere in Europe trying to find excellent children's shoes. Here Madame stocks Loup Blanc among many other brands and really knew her stuff. We'd go back to Abbeville for this alone.
    She was great with our son, too, who has no special foot problems. She had a good choice of shoes, sized his feet with great care and found some very suitable shoes he loved.
