Variety in style


More than 40 years ago, Knuth’s started as a family-owned shoe store on the east side of Cleveland. Since purchasing the store in 1987, John and Sherri Bryan have helped evolve the store into a boutique with a ton of footwear. 

Since then, the store has expanded to include an impressive assortment of apparel and accessories as well. It’s seen so much success at its Pepper Pike location that the trendy shop opened a second location in Westlake.

Bryan describes his establishment as a lifestyle kind of shop, one that takes you from the gym to cocktail attire and even a black tie event.

The boutique carries fun and different merchandise. The unique and eclectic collections that make Knuth’s what it is consist of labels such as Tori Burch, Free People and AG. 

"I have been in Knuth's a few times, and there has always been a nice variety of clothing, shoes and accessories. You can find unique pieces you wouldn't see anywhere else,” said frequent Knuth's shopper Ali, of Rocky River.

There is an array of shoes – boots, heels, clogs, flats and flip-flops. The hair accessories are youthful and trendy with glittery pieces and headbands with big flowers. Eyewear and handbags are not limited to any style and anyone could find a fit of choice. 

The selection of clothes is eclectic. You can find outerwear including everything from leather jackets to trench coats. There are dresses and tunics, printed t-shirts, pants, skirts and camisoles. 

Make it a point to stop in at either Knuth’s location to purchase one of this season’s hottest must-haves, the jegging, which is the creative name for the denim jean legging.
