Partner Spotlight

Hi Amazing Moxie Moms,

We have decided to feature a partner weekly and Pedestrian Shop based in Boulder is in the spotlight this week. Pretty certain we can all agree SHOES ROCK and Pedestrian Shop was 2022 Best of Boulder winner for best shoe store. CONGRATS!

They have been so kind and donated a $100 gift certificate we will be using at an upcoming event.  Stay tuned!!

We thought we would ask them a few questions and share them with you:

  • MOXIE: How long have you been in business in Colorado?  Pedestrian Shop: The Pedestrian Shops has been selling comfortable shoes in Boulder for over 50 years! We first opened in 1969.
  • MOXIE: Do you have a business mission statement we can share? Pedestrian Shop: Life is Short, Longer if you Walk!
  • MOXIE: Our records show we’ve been partners for five years – is this accurate? Pedestrian: 5 years looks accurate.
  • MOXIE: What do you specialize in? Pedestrian Shop: We specialize in comfortable footwear, this can be anything from walking shoes, gym shoes, shoes for going out on the town, and house shoes!
  • MOXIE: What is one tip or a special treat our Moxie Moms Members should consider when taking advantage of your goods or services?
    Pedestrian Shop: Fall is such a wonderful time to get outside and walk, make sure you check out all of our comfortable and cute walking shoes from brands like ON, Hoka, Altra and Merrell!
The Pedestrian Shops is a local, family owned business. Born in Boulder in 1969, we have been providing Coloradans with comfortable, fashionable footwear for almost 50 years.

We currently operate three Colorado stores and this website, Our largest, flagship store is located on Boulder’s famous Pearl St. Mall. This location also houses our corporate offices. Our second Boulder store is located in the Village shopping center at Folsom and Arapahoe. A favorite with Boulder locals, this store offers a parking lot right out front. Our newest location is in Denver, right between Downtown and LoHi in the growing Confluence Park area.

We pride ourselves on offering the World’s Most Comfortable Brands of Shoes and excellent customer service, and try to make the world a better place while we’re doing it.

Our community is important to us. We support a wide variety of non profits, events, and schools in Boulder and Denver. We also hold two shoe drives each year (around Earth Day and Thanksgiving) to directly help our neighbors in need.

The environment is also important to us. We strive to reduce our carbon footprint in a variety of ways including:

  • We use recycled boxes to ship our internet orders whenever possible
  • We own and operate a 10kw solar array that generates half of our Pearl St store’s energy needs
  • We recycle and compost as much as possible
  • We encourage our staff to walk, bike, or utilize public transportation

  Enjoy Life, Take a Walk!
