Some fantastic feedback from our customers!


A big thank you to our many customers who have taken the time to leave a review on our website. We pride ourselves on our customer service and it is so rewarding  to hear what our customers have to say. Here are just a few of those reviews:

“My very first order from you and cannot fault the service. Next day delivery and very good communications throughout. I am delighted that I have found a pair of Orla Kiely Milly shoes and they fit perfectly. Thank you very much!”- Clarks ‘Orla Milly’

“I have been looking for espadrilles like these forever! I’m so happy I found this website. Not everyone can wear 3″-4″ wedges and I’ve been so frustrated that EVERY pair of espadrilles I looked at were either 4″ or flat!!!! These are perfect, fit great-look great and I know as soon as it warms up (if it ever does) I will be living in them this summer.”- Toni Pons ‘Nuria’

“Was very easy to order online and by telephone, and the shoes were delivered very quickly and were exactly like they appeared online. Highly recommend this website.” – Primigi ‘Andes’

“Well organized, clear website, helpful sales people, reliable. Will buy again from The Golden Boot.”- R.M Williams ‘Comfort Craftsman’

“Hunter Basket Weave Welly Socks – had been searching for a pair of these for ages. Was delighted when found them on this site. Received so quickly and well packaged.
Thank you.” – Hunter ‘Kids Welly Socks’

“I love my patent blue Wonder shoes with a crepe wavy sole – perfect to go with my new silk skirt and comfortable enough to wear all night on the dance floor. Can’t wait to go out on that date!”- Wonders ‘6956 Barcelona’

“I had Nordika slippers already but they had seen better days so I ordered a replacement pair from The Golden Boot. The slippers arrived very promptly within the hour delivery slot. Will definitely use The Golden Boot again for other footwear purchases.” – Nordikas ‘Natala 234’

“I pondered about using this company as I hadn’t heard of them before but I was so desperate to get my hands on a pair of Toni Pons ( my very favourite summer shoes) I decided to give it a go. The person that I spoke to on the telephone was both charming and helpful so I ordered some shoes. I telephoned the shop at 1.22 pm and had my shoes by 9.05am the next morning. So, I just had to order some more! I had exactly the same efficient experience as before. My only regret is that this could get costly as there are still lots more Toni Pons in colours that I don’t yet have. I have already recommended this shop to friends. ” – Toni Pons ‘Nuria’ and ‘Tremp’

“My wife wanted a pair of house shoes as a present and found them on the Golden Boot site, slightly cheaper than from a competitor, so I ordered them, gift wrapped at no extra cost. She is delighted with them, and I was delighted with the prompt service. The free gift wrapping option was a really nice additional touch. Well be back!”- Nordikas ‘Nicola 305’

“Ordered the boots over the phone and these were despatched quickly and with no fuss. Would purchase again from this company.” – Barbour ‘Readhead’

“a very good web site with all the relevant information of sizing and choosing the right pair of shoes,very good choice with easy payment choices.
The communication for order confirmation delivery service excellent will definately use the Golden Boot again .”- Peter Kaiser ‘Lurkezia’

Seeland Wellies…a dog walkers dream!

After weeks of walking my dogs in this dreadful wet weather, and fed up with having cold wet feet, I decided to treat myself to a new pair of wellies.

After trying on a few different pairs, I decided on the Seeland Estate AT Lady 16″ 5mm.

Straightaway they felt more flexible to walk in  and cushioned underfoot than others I had tried and I liked the fact that the top of the boot could be adjusted depending on what jeans etc I was tucking in. They feel quite warm too compared with  other wellies, so I have not needed to wear really thick socks.

All in all, I would happily recommed the Seeland wellies, they tick all the boxes for me and at a decent price too…a very worthwhile investment!

Boot Shaper Product Review

If you have just invested in some winter boots and want to keep them looking their absolute best, you should invest in some Dasco bootshapers.

Bootshapers are really easy to use, and the adjustable design means that they will fit any knee length boot.
