Little Feet was founded by Ed Palent in South Miami, Florida in 1982. Quickly earning a national reputation for offering both fashion and fit expertise, the store grew rapidly. Little Feet was recognized by Child Magazine in 1994 as one of the top ten children’s shoe stores in the country.
In 1993, Ed’s daughter, Beth, and her husband Buddy opened the Denver Little Feet store. Patterned after Ed’s store, Beth and Buddy brought second-generation shoe fitting experience to Colorado.
