**Disclosure:  This post was sponsored by Famous Footwear, but my love of shoes is all my own.  All opinions expressed here are strictly my own and were not influenced in any way**

If there is one thing in this world that I can not resist, it’s a new pair of shoes.  I have well over a hundred pairs and have been known to drop a pretty penny on a single pair (gosh, I hope my husband isn’t reading this).  Lucky for me, when I shop at Famous Footwear, I don’t have to drop a ton of money on new shoes.  They have a huge variety of all the latest styles for the entire family and more importantly, they are affordable.

I was so excited when I heard that Famous Footwear opened two new stores in my area.  I am always out & about, so having more shopping options is always a good thing.  Where are they you ask?

1. The 6,000-square-foot Westwood store is located in the Westwood Station at 245 University Ave.

2. The 5,049-square-foot Hyannis store is located in the Capetown Plaza at 790 Iyanoough Rd.

I had a chance to stop by the new store in Westwood yesterday and was really impressed with the new store.  In case you’ve never been inside a Famous Footwear, they carry name brands at discounted prices.

Famous Footwear Store Westwood

Famous Footwear has a huge selection of brand name shoes including Sketchers, Adidas, Nike, Reebok, Dr. Scholl’s, Converse, Aerosoles, Naturalizer and Steve Madden Girl. They carry the latest styles for the entire family including women, men, girls and boys! Even though it has still been pretty chilly here in Boston, I have a major case of spring fever, so I wanted to get a new pair of sandals because I figured that would make me feel better about the fact I am still cold all of the time.

I spent a while browsing through all the fun spring styles out and had a really hard time narrowing it down to which ones I wanted to buy.  I could have easily left with a pair of every style of shoes they sold. But these are what I ended up with:

Cute, right?

Famous Footwear Shoes

The new stores in Westwood and Hyannis mark their 28th and 29th locations in the greater Boston area. Both locations just opened on March 11 and they’re both  hosting eight Free Shoe Saturdays, which began on March 21.

Free Shoes?  Yes.

Famous Footwear will host Free Shoe Saturdays at both new locations with hourly shoe drawings from noon to 5 p.m. every Saturday until May 9. Customers are invited to come back weekly for a chance to win up to one free pair a week.

If you’ve never shopped at a Famous Footwear before, you are missing out. They are a leading, easy-to-shop footwear destination, featuring brand name merchandise for women, men and children, making it a one-stop-shop for the entire family. They also have a loyalty Rewards program, so check that out the next time you are there.

Additionally, Famous Footwear is a proud sponsor of March of Dimes and from March 26 to April 25, they will be donating $5 from every pair of select Saucony purchase to the organization (up to $75,000).

  1. Love the shoes you picked and love Famous Footwear here, too! 😉

  2. I’m a shoe lover, too! I’m in need of some new spring and summer footwear (or so I tell myself). I need to head over to Famous Footwear and look around. Love the sandals you purchased!

  3. Those shoes are really cute! You are all set for summer – if it ever gets here!!

  4. This is the first time I’ve heard of Famous Footwear ( we don’t have one here, boo ) but I must say, this is heaven. It does remind me of Payless. The concept seems the same, but Famous Footwear seems to carry better brands. I hope it eventually comes to my country – the shoe-lover in me will love this!

  5. So how many pair did you really buy? They do have some cute shoes, that’s for sure.

  6. wow, free shoe Saturdays, pretty good customer promotion if you ask me :). I bet they get a lot of visitors with that. Looks like you found some nice sandals while you were there!

  7. I absolutely adore Famous Footwear- it’s one of those rare stores that you can always find what you’re looking for. I wish I was up in Boston for the free shoe giveaway, what an awesome promotion!

  8. Not sure if there is a Famous Footwear near me. If there is I am positive my Mom knows exactly where it is–having a shoe addiction is a lifetime habit–she is 92 and still can’t get enough shoes!!

  9. Famous Footwear sounds like a great place to shop and they do have some really cute styles. The sandals you selected are cute and are something I would have selected for myself. I love cute summer shoes.

  10. Cute sandals! FF always has a good selection of known brands. Nice post today!

  11. That’s a super fun pair of shoes you picked! I love Famous Footwear too!

  12. I think we do have a Famous Footwear close by. I haven’t tried it out, but if they’ve got sandals that cute, I’m headed over.

  13. Those a re cute shoes Robin. They have shoes for the whole family?

    • We’ve bought shoes for the whole family at Famous Footwear. Great selection, great prices.

  17. Those are cute shoes and they would go great with a lot of different styles of outfits. I’ve always had really great experiences with famous footwear.

  18. Thanks for sharing!! Love the Saucony promotion! Makes me want to go and purchase a pair!

  19. Gah, I love your new shoes for the summer time! I’ll have to check out and see if there is a location near me because I definitely could use a shoe shopping spree for the spring and summer.

  138. The people closest to me would say that the LAST thing I need is anotheer pair of shoes, butI would adamently disagree…I ALWAYS need a new pair of shoes. Spring, I need new white sneakers; summeer, I need new sandals; fall, I need some awesome new boots; winter, well I just need shoes to cheer me up. I can’t think of a single season, holliday or just day of the week that I do not need new shoes..they have to match our outfits, right ladies? Famous Footwear is great for those with an undying love of shoes because they really do have a little of everything.

  140. I’m trying to pass my shoe problem on to my kids. It doesn’t help that they are adorable (IMHO) and all my friends pass outgrown shoes to me. Do love famous footwear also.

  141. I wish I loved shoes, but I have a hard time finding shoes I like that are also comfortable! I used to shop at Famous Footwear all the time for my family, but haven’t seen any since relocating. I will have to see if there are any in the area.

  142. I need to hit up Famous Footwear because I need new walking shoes. I want some nice and bright new kicks!

  143. i need to get some cute flats to wear … mine are all so old and yuck!! i’ll have to pop in to famous footwear next week

  144. Those sandals looks amazing on you! I love the toe color too bright just for spring!

  145. I could definitely have a shoe problem, easily. Shoes are so much fun to shop for…way better than bathing suits and the like! Love your new sandals too…Fun with a little dress up look if you want! Time for me to snag a new pair of sandals from Famous Footwear with warmer weather FINALLY arriving!
