A message from the Founder, Heather Hopkins:


There was once a little girl who hated the first day of school because she was so embarrassed by her clothes and shoes.  Every summer, she worried about returning to school and feeling "less than" the other kids in class.  

That little girl was my mother.

I founded My New Red Shoes so children could start the school year on the right foot--looking and feeling confident in new shoes and clothing.
