Houstonians have a special place in their hearts for what they put on their feet.
As a newcomer to Houston one of the most memorable local brands is the Houston Shoe Hospital. Huge and bold and pretty much everywhere, it is proof of the local dedication to footwear. Numerous other specialty shoe stores and repair shops show that shoes are a central part of Houstons culture.
