Family Owned Wide Width Shoe Store


 by: Hillary Kuenn

In this day of franchise stores and towns that pretty much look the same from one strip mall to the next, Levin's Shoes & Dry Goods, just like the town, Marengo, retain a distinctive homey and personal air. The owners proudly state, "We emphasize quality, price and service. Customers get individual attention." Levin's even orders merchandise, such as wide width shoes, with particular customers in mind. As the years passed, the store, which originally sold work boots and bib overalls to farmers, diversified into other lines, including flannel shirts, cotton stockings and dresses. Today, Levin's still sells Oshkosh B'Gosh bibs and American-made work boots, but also offers brands such as Woolrich, Airwalks, and New Balance Athletic shoes. Recently there has been an increase in demand for wide width shoes of all styles. Levin's understands the importance of a good-fitting shoe and carries a wide selection of wide width shoes for men, women and children. The only downfall to this excellent store is that it is only located in Marengo, and as mentioned by the family, "we'll always be in Marengo."

The most convenient option for distant customers is to browse their online website and place orders there. Customers are able to e-mail an explanation of their athletic needs to the Levin's family and they will respond with various suggestions of wide width shoes. The wide width shoes that are available to view or order through their online site include;

*The HushPuppy "Mall Walker," is among the first choices for men who need wide width shoes. The "Mall Walkers" are built with an extra large toe-box and has a longwearing vibrim sole and removable "perma-foam" insole. It is an excellent dress-casual wide width shoe for men who must have good support for standing or walking long hours on hard surfaces.

*The Wolverine Dura-Shock Slip-Resistant Boots are great for the workingman needing wide width shoes, particularly work boots. These boots have built in comfort features for all-day wear in EEE widths! They are made with Wolverine Performance Leather and have a removable full-cushion, dual-density, polymer foot bed.

*New Balance is the only major athletic shoe company in the world that builds a complete line of wide width shoes, from AA to EEEE. Wide width shoes are available in men's and women's running, tennis, walking, cross training, and basketball. Levin's also carries a wide range of wide width shoes for basketball, tennis, and cross training for children from size three to six.

*Converse All-Star and Converse All-Star High-Tops canvas shoes are a popular and stylish brand of wide width shoes among teenagers. These shoes are available in variety of colors and sizes for a comparatively low price.

In this day of franchise stores and towns that pretty much look the same from one strip mall to the next, Levin's Shoes & Dry Goods, just like the town, Marengo, retain a distinctive homey and personal air. "Sure we carry a lot of nationally recognized brands such as Levi's and Hush Puppies, " said Levin, "but where else can you get 'Romeo slippers' or wool long-johns?" Levin's offers the customer a unique selection of high demand products like wide width shoes and helpful, easy purchasing ability. These features create an atmosphere that consumers enjoy, "a family store."
