Someday, they’ll walk in your footsteps!

But first, they must walk on their own. The people at Junior Towne know what it takes for the best fit in a pair of shoes. We have measured and sized thousands of little feet from the first pair right on up through school sneakers. And no one knows the careful and caring science of children’s footwear better than Stride Rite. Stride Rite shoes bend at the right place and offer the proper support in others. For some reason, little Alaskan feet seem to be wider than average which is why we specialize in wide and extra wide widths. A child’s feet are with him or her the rest of his life-good shoes and a proper fit are so important. Our fall selection of Stride Rite footwear is arriving daily.

(Psst-we don’t want to say it, but the days are getting shorter and our Sorel boots should be in this week! Our first shipment of Obermeyer snowsuits were just unpacked today!)

Soles 4 Souls, local

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

We recently partnered with the non-profit Soles 4 Soles organization which provides recycled shoes to people around the word in dire need. You brought in a huge number of children’s shoes which we sent to Nashville, TN for cleaning and distribution. The mission of Sole 4 Souls is “Changing the World One Pair at a Time.” Thank you to all our loyal contributors-the drive was great success.

One another note, did you know that we also give your outgrown, gently used shoes when you leave them with us to several worthy, local organizations such as Clare House, the Salvation Army and North Star School? We do this throughout the year but summer and back to school time in Alaska seems to be critical. New shoes are always best for children’s feet but when money is tight and your child’s feet have grown, a gently used pair is very much appreciated. Next time you are in, please drop off any extra children’s shoes that you might have. We will see that they go to a good home!

Something to “think” about with our hot Alaskan summer-

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

With our “excessive” heat the last few days (remember that we are not complaining!) we thought that you would like to know about our thinksport stainless steel sports bottle which works great for children. It is vacuum sealed to help keep contents hot or cold, has a drinking spout, internal filter and has an easy hold design. It was highlighted the current Tennis Magazine as the recommended sports bottle and is BPA free. We also carry the complete line of thinkbaby bottles. The company has had great reviews on their baby products. If you are ever looking for the latest information on BPA or environmental concerns, please visit their website as they routinely pull the latest information. Their website address is or
