Great service and prices.
I visited for the first time yesterday, and despite other reviews, found that their prices are quite good -- as good or better than what I could find for the same shoes online. They carry high quality shoes, not cheap ones, so you need to expect to pay for that. Service was also great, very attentive but not high pressure. The salesperson I dealt with actually steered me to a more comfortable and less expensive shoe than I initially was considering!
Shoes for the type of people who have neither a hole in their sole nor in their pocketbook.. The Scene The floor plan at Little's is basic but effective: one large open area on the right for women; another large open area on the left for men (with girls' and boys' shoes encompassed within, respectively). The shoe displays are equally utilitarian. The help is a curious dichotomy: on the men's side, you can expect to be offered full assistance early and often, while the women's side is more of a hands-on free-for-all, especially at clearance times.
The Skinny Little's in Squirrel Hill has a nice variety of dress and casual shoes for men, women, and children--just don't expect a price break or a wide selection of athletic shoes. Also be sure to check out the women's accessories: they may well be cooler than any of the shoes.
For Men For dress shoes, loafers, and other non-athletic fare, Little's offers a variety of quality brands, including Kenneth Cole, Rockport, Clarks of England, Ecco, Timberland, Birkenstock, and Doc Martens. But don't look for this variety in athletic shoes: the selection is small for both genders, consisting mostly of New Balance with a small sprinkling of Nike and Adidas.
For Women The women's side has a nifty accessories section filled with unusual watches, jewelry, purses, wallets, and hats. Best of all are the handmade purses and handbags, all adorned with original decorations and artwork.
