As opposed to the other two reviews, I actually like shopping at Shoe Carnival. I've probably been in there once or twice when they have a carnival type atmosphere. The rest of the time it's usually been pretty quite. I think this shoe store has a great selection of all different kinds of shoes. Often, their prices are unbeatable and you can get specials. I usually take advantage of the buy one pair at full price and get the second at half price. The have a very nice selection of men's shoes too. You can often find great deals in their clearance sections. The entire stock does vary quite often and there have been times when I've found nothing I liked. However, more often than not I leave with what I came for. I appreciate the wide selection even on days when the carnival is too loud.
