Peter Kaiser Susa Proving To Be A Hit In America!

We have a very happy customer living in New York who found us by chance when surfing the Internet. She was on a mission to find a stockist of Peter Kaiser shoes after coming across the brand while on holiday. She has now found her perfect shoe, Peter Kaiser Susa! She has just taken delivery of the nude crackle, her fifth pair of Susa! This is what she has to say about the style and The Golden Boot….

Geox Childrens Shoes and How They Fit

One of the most common questions we get asked about childrens Geox shoes is how they compare on size and fit to Clarks and Startrite.
Unlike Clarks and Startrite, Geox shoes do not have width fittings and they are made in continental sizes.

What Geox do is give the sole of the shoe a name eg. Ascari or Jocker, and this dictates the fit and width of the shoe in comparison with English sizes.

What is love

Valentines Day is just around the corner ( Thursday 14th Feb for anyone thats forgotten !) and it can be a bit of a minefield trying to find that perfect gift for the one we love.

One of our new men’s customers

We had to take a photograph of one of our new men’s customers. He came back to the shop today proudly wearing his new pair of Loake Worton.

Check him out in the photograph; we felt he pulled the look of effortlessly. Dark straight leg denims, waist coat, Harris tweed jacket and even a trilby hat.

He came in to tell us how pleased he was with his new shoes and how comfortable they are, he was particularly happy with the red Dainite sole unit as not only was it comfortable but it was very good in the bad conditions we have been faced with recently. He was so happy with his shoes he was also keen to buy a more formal version, so after trying on a few pairs of brogues he wandered out with another pair of Loake, this time the leather soled Chester.

He was surprised when trying on Loake Chester that he ended up going for a size 8 as opposed to the 81/2 he had in Worton.

So there we have it another happy customer from The Golden Boot men’s department, we hope to see you again soon.

P.s. We know you are a big fan of Oliver Sweeney. Watch this space for Autumn/Winter 2013
