ZapposWhen I'm shopping online for shoes for myself, my first stop is always Zappos. In addition to having great customer service, free shipping and free return shipping for shoes in new condition, they offer a staggering selection of brands and styles.
To give an example, my most recent searches returned over 1400 results for girls athletic shoes in toddler sizes, and nearly 1100 styles of girl's dress shoes in youth sizes.
With footwear conveniently organized by gender, shoe type, age group or brand, navigating the Zappos web site is a breeze, and is quite addictive once you realize you can also sort your choices by price, size, color, width and heel height. And with brands like Steve Madden, Nina, Dansko and Skechers, finding shoes that are kid-approved will be one of the easiest tasks you'll ever take on. (Buy Direct)
