Sweet Shoes at Hennie McPennie

You might not consider Mercer Island a go-to spot for kids’ shoes, but you’d be missing out on Hennie McPennie. Opened last January by John and Theresa Keith, former telecom execs, the shop is a result of three years of footwear research, with the goal of providing high-quality footwear to the island’s smallest residents. “We make certain that the shoe will fit…and will last and be comfortable,” Theresa explains. Find soccer shoes from Diadora; tennies from Puma; Pediped and Primigi for “little potato feet” and locally designed See Kai Run shoes. Fun murals frame a totally rad central play area. 3043 78th Ave. SE; 206.232.0495; henniemcpennie.com
