Children's Shoes was founded by Charles R. and Joann
Keen in 1961. Their first store was located in Broad Ripple
on the old north side of Indianapolis. Mr. Keen saw the need
for a more personalized service -oriented children's shoe
store, which catered to the footwear needs of parents and
their children. At that time prescription footwear for children
was an important aspect of their business. This required accurate
fitting and a knowledge of how feet respond to different prescription
applications. Mr. Keen was a Certified Pedorthist, trained
to fill doctors' prescriptions.
Other locations have served the west, south and northeast
sides of Indianapolis. Our main location is currently located
in Carmel, Indiana, a suburb on the north side.
