South Florida has always been known as an unofficial fashion capital. Whether its high fashion or athletic apparel, there is something for everyone. Not only does South Florida have almost every supply chain known to man, but they also have a host of local businesses that do everything right for their local communities and economy. These five boutique locations give consumers separate experiences in several different environments. Whether a flagship supplier or a humanitarian effort, teenager or small child, back to school shopping should be made easier with this list!

In Jacobs Shoes
3452 N.W 27th Ave
Pompano Beach, Florida 33069
(954) 904-2505
www.injacobsshoes.com

A unique concept in back to school drives has been formed by In Jacob’s Shoes, a non-profit organization in memory of the late Jacob S. Zweig, a teen who lost his life too early. Jacob always gave to those in need, and this organization was created to continue that mission. As our children rapidly grow in and out of shoe sizes, we often buy more shoes than we can handle. Often shoes go unworn or with very little wear. Jacob’s Shoes puts supporters in his shoes and allows them to donate to other children who have no option for back to school shopping. They provide shoes to children who are in desperate need. Instead of leaving the store with just a new pair of shoes, visitors leave with respect and gratitude.
