Shopping for kid’s shoes can be a daunting task — they grow so fast, and the shoes they don’t grow out of quickly just seem to fall apart upon their little feet.  Although every mom and dad would like to put the most popular brands on their kid’s feet, sometimes it can be difficult to know where to shop to get the best shoes at prices that won’t cost an arm and a leg — let alone a foot.  In order to help with that task, here’s a list of some of the best places to buy shoes for kids in Chicago.
