Here at Clinkards we have been fitting children with their first shoes for over 70 years, granting us a wealth of experience when it comes to knowing the ins and outs of children’s fittings. Company founders Charles and Eveline Clinkard had four children of their own, so correctly fitting children's shoes became a particular passion of Eveline's. Following the Second World War, Eveline Clinkard introduced the store’s first children’s shoe range and would personally measure and fit children who visited the shop. Things have changed a bit since then but our passion for ensuring that children’s shoes are fitted correctly has not. We firmly believe that a correctly fitting pair of shoes is vital to helping children as they make their first few steps into the world .
