The Old Fashioned Shoe Store

Penn Lee Footwear opened in 1961 as a full-service shoe store. It has been at the same location at 163 East Main Street in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania for more than 60 years! Visit us for a personalized shoe fitting (yes, we still measure feet!) and experience a forgotten world of old-fashioned customer service. Although our website only displays photos of safety shoes, we do have a vast selection of soft-toed styles in our store.  Call 570-825-5346 to find out what we have available in your size!

Our 2023 winter collection features new merchandise from Sorel, Taos, Dansko, Rieker, Kamik, Propet, and Emu Australia! Stop by to get measured and fitted by a member of our staff. Open 7 days a week!
