Today we headed off to a Clarks shoe shop in Llandudno to
review the experience. I was actually
quite impressed with the fitting; it seems to have gone very hi-tech since we were
last in store a while ago. Length,
width and depth all measured for you by a capable member of the Clarks team.
admit we have been guessing the boys shoe sizes with lots of careful prodding
around their feet, I had thought we were getting it pretty close but youngest
was measured as a size 11 and we had given him much bigger shoes to accommodate
his wide feet. I do feel a little
guilty that we have been guessing especially now knowing that we were out by a
bigger margin than we had both expected!
Clarks actually have quite an extensive
range of widths so we could have shoes that fitted him well without
compromising his comfort or style. He
was very pleased with his chosen trainers and has been proudly showing anyone
who will look his “new shoes”.
trained assistant was very helpful and friendly, she seemed exceptionally
thorough, double-checking that the shoes he had picked would be suitable for
the shape of his feet and just as comfortable when he finally got them
shoes he picked cost £32, which I usually spend at the local sports shop
anyway, but this time I know they fit him perfectly. On top of that the shoes at Clarks have been created to cater for
your child’s foot development, with years of experience they make sure there is
still growing room, appropriate cushioning and support and breathable
was keen on all the colourful trainers.
do seem to have gone very trendy as you can see from the website and having had such a pleasant experience I am
sure we will be back more often now. It
is a bit of a hike to our local store but its well worth the journey just to ensure
we are on the right track with the boys shoe sizes!
