As I said before, shops commonly list the products they sell under the
shop name on a shield. Example:
I suppose you wouldn't tag this shop as 'Sweets & News cold drinks
magazines newspapers sweets bus passes'?

So the question is - what makes you think that 'Footwear' is part of
the name, rather than a description of the products they sell?
