About Us

The Little Shoe Store – Grown Up Shoes for Petite Feet

Just because our feet may be petite, we should not be relegated to wearing primary colors, cartoon characters or the “tween” idol of the month.

We are women, and as such, we deserve flats, boots, and heels that give us confidence at work, that get us through our day, and that show off our sexy sensual side whenever we want.

The Little Shoe Store helps the woman with petite feet become all she wants to be.

Owner: Sydney Pringle

Fed up with not being able to find stylish shoes for my own size four feet, I decided to take matters into my own hands and established The Little Shoe Store in 2010. I've been blessed to have a dedicated customer base since the start. I'm also thrilled to have created the Little Women line, dedicated to not just LPs but any petite foot that runs wider.


Brand Ambassador:  Olivia Vitrano

Hi, my name is Olivia Vitrano and I am 14. I'm a little person. I have achondroplasia—a form of dwarfism. My journey of trying to find age appropriate shoes was very difficult for me because I have a wider but smaller foot. So it was very frustrating going to a shoe store and spending hours there, finding no shoes that fit my feet. At one point I was crying to my parents not to take me to shoe stores because it was a waste of time, and I knew no shoes would fit me. To a teenage girl that is the worst. When my mom was searching online to try to find custom shoe shops, we found many, very expensive customizable shoe websites. But The Little Shoe Store stood out because it catered to small size shoes and accommodates people with differences. When my mom and I found The Little Shoe Store, we were ecstatic. I actually enjoyed buying shoes that made me feel like a regular teen. My life became easier because buying shoes for me became easier. That's why I am here to tell you that The Little Shoe Shop is the perfect place because you don't have to worry. Sydney is there to help and make sure everything fits great! 


Brand Ambassador: Kaley Feser

Hi, my name is Kaley Feser. I have achondroplasia. I am 20 years old and a part-time college student at Iowa Central Community College here in Fort Dodge, Iowa. My love for fashion started at a very young age and has continued throughout my adulthood. I met Sydney at my first national convention in St. Louis where she introduced me to her shoe line. The main reason why I love The Little Shoe Store is because they make shoes that fit and that are also stylish. Being a little person it was always hard to find shoes, so what The Little Shoe Store is doing is a great thing.
