Shopping Head to Toe at Town Square Shoes on Seaside Square

July 16, 2019 by Manny Chavez

The next time you find yourself strolling around Seaside, pop in our favorite new store. Because you deserve a new pair of shoes!

The fabulous Town Square Shoes is nestled between Modica Market and the Seaside Post Office on the circle. Barefoot is great on the beach, but your feet will thank you when you slip into a pair of Birkenstock’s or Mephisto’s - solid comfort, totally fashionable, and ALMOST barefoot!

Co-owner Joy Hardy is enthusiastic about the response to Seaside’s latest retail shop.

 “We’ve noticed customers really appreciate our selection, our location, and great customer service,” says Joy. “There’s so much to do in Seaside - so we have a built-in audience.”

Store manager Danny Kleiner, who pretty much lives in his “ON’s (a Swiss athletic shoe), is equally as enthusiastic about Town Square Shoes. “Our staff is very educated regarding our brands. When a customer comes in and has any shoe fit issue, we can help them out. We know what works for any issues. We take full service to the next level and stock some of the best shoes on the Emerald Coast.”

The store offers an extensive line of casual resort footwear with a price range of $100-$600. Popular brands include Birkenstock, ON, Mephisto, OTBT, Bernardo, NAOT, and Donald Pliner, but there are literally dozens of choices for shoes, sandals, boots and athletic footwear.

“We have the best selection of sandals in town,” emphasizes Joy .”We carry sandals year-round, but we do offer boots and winter footwear during our colder months.

The store also offers a customer loyalty program which allows for a $5 back reward for every $100 spent.

While you’re at it, check out the excellent hat selection. Fun in the sun is cool, but keeping sunburn away is even cooler, especially with a fashionable hat to flaunt at the beach! To complete your Seaside selections, Town Square Shoes also offers a variety of handbags, jewelry and socks.

Handbag selections include HOBO, Hammitt, Brahmin, Pikolino, FRYE, Eric Javits, and Cofi. Jewelers include It’s A Beach Thing pearls; Salty Sparrow necklaces and bracelets; and Summer Night’s necklaces, anklets, rings, and bracelets. A belt selection will be available in August.

The store is a fun place to hang out, you’re greeted by friendly employees,  and the floor-to-ceiling window lighting perfectly shows off the displays.

SoWal residents and visitors have yet another reason to spend some time at Seaside. Visit Town Square Shoes at 20 Central Square, Seaside from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mon.-Sat. and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays.
