Michelson’s Shoes

Generations of MetroWest kids (and their well-clad parents) have slid into the metal shoe-measuring device at Michelson’s while a salesperson knelt down to ensure the perfect fit. While the painstaking service is timeless, you’ll always find a deep inventory of contemporary brands, from New Balance to Sorel, that promise to make back-to-school shopping with even the most discerning minis a little easier.
