The shoes are designed to squeak because it notifies the parent and child when the foot is striking properly. The little girl, Emma Duke, is required to wear the shoes. Her mother spoke to WTOC in Savannah, Georgia and said she felt it was blatantly clear she and her daughter were not welcome in the restaurant with the shoes. 


The general manager of the store has reportedly spoken to the family since the incident occurred.
