About Us

Three Generations. Carl’s Shoes truly is a family business. Founder Carl Barone (left) with his daughter, Patti Higman, and grandson, Jeffrey Higman.

When Carl Barone opened his shoe store on Main Street in the historic community of Moorestown in 1958, he did so with a philosophy that has remained unchanged: he wanted to ensure that all his customers had shoes that actually fit.

The motto of Carl’s Shoes Inc., then as now, is “Where Shoes Are Fitted…Not Just Sold.”

Today there are three generations proudly carrying on a tradition of superior customer care and service.

Comfort Counts

“Many people do not realize that their foot changes over the years, so the shoe that fit when a person was 20 may not be the right size 10 or 15 years later,” Carl Barone says. According to Carl, 75 percent of his first time customers come in wearing the wrong size shoe.

That’s why, at Carl’s Shoes, sales personnel measure every customer every time. A record of shoe sizes is retained in the store’s files.

Fashion & Comfort, too

At Carl’s Shoes, you’ll find a wide variety of shoes from the world’s top manufacturers such as SAS, UGG, Allen Edmonds, Bostonian, Nike, New Balance, Stride Rite, Munro, Trotters, and scores more! And remember, Carl Barone stands behind the shoes you stand in.

New technology has enabled footwear to be lighter, more flexible, and more shock absorbent, but the best looking and the best-made shoes will not be comfortable unless they are properly fitted.

Avoid Foot Problems

It is estimated that people walk between 7,000 and 10,000 steps every day. In fact, studies show that three out of four Americans experience a serious foot problem at least once in their lifetime. “Many foot problems—in people of all ages—can be prevented, or alleviated, by properly fitted shoes,” explains Jeffrey Higman, an American Board Certified Pedorthist. “When your feet feel good, you feel good.”

Comfort at Any Age

Growing children outgrow shoes quickly—sometimes more quickly than parents recognize. At Carl’s, parents can be assured that every child can get exactly the right shoes to accommodate their hyperactive lifestyles. That goes for seniors, too. Carl’s shoe experts are experienced at serving the special foot needs of seniors, as well as men and women of all ages.
