L&L Shoes

In downtown Palestine, a small, family-owned shoe store bears stubborn witness to change.

L&L owners John and Janice Schwab hold firm to tradition, in spite of a changing consumer landscape that pits small shops in direct competition with big box dealers.

These are tough times for independent shoe retailers, but it seems Schwab sticks to his measuring stick, knowing he has something most of the big guys don't: History.

"It started in 1935," he said of the long-standing shoe business launched earlier by entrepreneurs Henry Leon and Joe Lewis.

"They broke the partnership later," but Leon continued on, eventually selling the business in the 1970s to the Schwabs.
