I know Kohl's stores are great about returns. With your gait test, chances are you are going to be inside wearing the shoes any way, so it should not be an issue. Keep in mind, even if things don't work out at those other stores and you have an in-store credit, you can use that credit for your child (so make sure they have more than women's shoes). Assume you could also sell or give the credit to someone else. Email me on the side if you would like more info on some natural technologies that can help all sorts of feet problems. I've seen many amazing things.
