Well it's about time! DSW, the designer shoe warehouse that generally lives up to its name, has added kids shoes. DSW Kids is now available online and at 200 stores nationwide. In the Twin Cities, you'll find the kids collection at Knollwood Mall, Eden Prairie Center, Fountains at Arbor Lake in Maple Grove, Maplewood Town Center, and Riverdale Plaza in Coon Rapids (not Mall of America, which seems odd, but perhaps it's a space issue).
DSW is offering infant, toddler and youth sizes up to 7 for boys and girls. Expect many of the same brand names found in the adult section: New Balance, Nike, Converse, Vans, Jessica Simpson (yep, she makes pink "crib boots" too!), at discounted prices.
It's a nice added resource as we head into back to school shopping. Sorry. I said it.
