Why Choose Fitted Shoes

What are fitted shoes?

The key benefit of fitted shoes is their availability in width fittings and half sizes, in addition to whole sizes. Kids should ideally have their feet measured in a store for their fitted shoes.

Why Choose Fitted Shoes?

By choosing fitted shoes at one of our stores, your children will benefit from the wealth of experience our shoe fitters have, ensuring you get the right size shoes to fit your child's feet. If you can't get to one of our stores, you can now order fitted shoes online too.

Children's feet grow at a tremendous rate. The shape of their feet is constantly evolving, so it is absolutely crucial that they wear shoes that are perfectly suited to their feet.

At Charles Clinkard, we have been fitting shoes since 1924. We have a rigorous period of training that every member of staff must undergo before they work on the shop floor. A big part of that focuses on fitting kids' shoes. We don't like to brag, but we know a thing or two about children's shoes.

Where can I get fitted shoes?

Although you can buy fitted shoes from our website for home delivery, we strongly recommend that you have your children's feet measured in store.
This can be done in 2 ways:

If you don't know the specific size or style of shoe you'd like, book a fitting appointment with one of our expert shoe fitters.

If you already know the size and type of shoe that suits your child's feet, order them online and choose the 'Collect In Store' delivery option at the basket. Please see below for a full list of stores where you can do this.

If you've chosen the 'Collect In Store' option, your shoes will be at your chosen store within 5 working days of your order. The store will give you a call to let you know when they're ready to collect. You will also be given the opportunity at this stage to beat the queues by booking a fitting appointment.

When you come to collect your kids' fitted shoes from us, we won't just hand them over to you and wave you goodbye. Our fully trained fitting consultants will measure your children's feet to ensure that the shoes fit correctly and that you're getting the right size.

Alternative Shoes & Refunds

If for any reason the shoes you ordered are not suitable, we will tell you and suggest alternatives. Otherwise we're happy to give you a full refund, using the original payment method.

If you have any questions about our Collect In Store service, just call us on 0345 241 7742.

You can choose to collect your fitted shoes from any of our stores nationwide.
