Magic Shoebox is a children’s shoe store located in on Eighth Avenue in Maylands. It is owned and run by Kath Lloyd, a podiatrist and mother herself who understands that children like shoes to “look good” whilst parents want shoes that “fit good”.
Magic Shoebox has such a great reputation with Perth parents that families are known to travel from all over Perth to get their shoes fitted there. Kath and her team are super friendly, great with the kids and you never feel as though you are being rushed – even when they have a queue of people in the store!
Magic Shoebox sources childrens shoes that are of great quality and fit, from all over the world.
You’ll find international and Australian brands such as Agatha Ruiz de le Prada, Biomechanics, See Kai Run, New Balance, Walnut, and Surefit to name just a few plus a wide range of school shoes.
Kath and her co-workers are incredibly knowledgeable about their range of shoes. Magic Shoebox understand that shoe sizes differ from brand to brand and even styles within brands so they utilise an intricate measuring device called the Plus12 to measure children’s feet. They are the first company to do so within Australia. The system takes the length of the foot, adding 12mm of growth rom. It is then used to measure the inside of the shoe to make sure both measurements correspond so you can be guaranteed of a perfect fit.
There is such a large selection of gorgeous shoes available for both boys and girls that you are bound to find a style that suits, the only hard part is stopping yourself coming away with several pairs! They cater for babies right up to teens and I know some mums that have bought a pair for themselves too!
Through out the year they run sales were you are guaranteed to pick up a bargain or two! Keep your eye on their Facebook page to find out when the sales are.
There is a lego table and an activity cube store so that children can be entertained whilst their sibling is having their shoes fitted.
Pay a visit to the Magic Shoebox. Once you have discovered it I doubt you’ll go anywhere else. Your child will leave the store knowing they ‘look good’ and you will feel happy knowing that their shoes ‘fit good’!
Magic Shoebox is located at 70 Eighth Avenue Maylands. It is open Monday – Saturday 9.30am – 5.00pm and Sunday 10am – 3.00pm
