About us

Head Start Shoes is a boutique shoe store opened in Philadelphia in 1978. Our merchandise is carefully selected by the owners and imported from Italy. We concentrate primarily on carrying companies whose products are manufactured in small factories. By developing relationships with these factories, we can be confident that the high quality of our shoes is consistent.

In addition to developing relationships with designers and factories, we also pride ourselves in maintaining strong relationships with our customers. Whether you are a loyal, local Philadelphian who has been shopping with us for over thirty years, or a new international customer, your satisfaction is important to us and we are always happy to speak with you over the phone or through email and answer any questions that you might have about us or our shoes.
