New kids’ foot-sizing and shoe-shopping app from Philadelphia natives allows parents to shop from home

Jul 1st 2018

Parenthood comes with many challenges and frustrations, but two Philadelphia residents have created an app to eliminate one: shopping for kids' shoes.

Eve Ackerley and Carolyn Horner on Wednesday launched Jenzy, an app that allows parents to size their kids' feet and buy shoes for them without a trip to a shoe store. Horner said the idea started as an app for adult shoe-shopping, but the two reevaluated their plan after Horner's unsuccessful trip to the shoe store with her young nieces.
