The city's head honcho. For generations Walter's has been anchored in the heart of downtown Atlanta providing consistent quality and great prices. There is no doubt to any native Atlantian that this sneaker gem is the heart and sole of the city.

Eclectic doesn't begin to describe the selection at Abbadabba's. Fabrics that you never envisioned you'd see on a pair of shoes are everyday occurrences at this Little 5 staple. If you're looking for something different, this is your spot.
