Howard Curry Shoes is known for the talking tree. It is a tree that tells each child goodbye as he/she leaves the store. Howard Curry should also be known for its knowledge of children's shoes. There are little chairs for kids to sit in to try shoes on. It is precious. I felt like they really knew what they were talking about when I was purchasing shoes for my little one. However, the prices are higher than I wanted to pay, but the shoes don't rub blisters like the cheaper ones did that I bought at a chain.
