A Trip To Our Local Clarks Shoe Shop


At the weekend we went to our local Clarks store in Whitley Village to pick Maxwell some new shoes for the fast approaching Autumn/Winter. Before heading there I had a little look at the shoes I thought may look nice on Maxwell on the Clarks website, there was a lot of choice, a wide range of prices to suit everyone's budget and a whole load of designs. After a long look on their website I had in mind what I was after.

When we got to the Clarks store in Whitley we were greeted by friendly staff. We were told to take a number and we were asked to wait on comfy seating, we were then asked to wait for our number to be called out and we were told we then would be seen by a staff member who would measure Maxwell's feet. We waited a short amount of time and we were then seen.

The staff member measured Maxwell's feet and we found that Maxwell's feet had grown half a size. When Maxwell was getting his feet measured it was great to see that the staff member captured Maxwell's attention, it was also great to see how thorough she was when she measured his feet. She wrote the sizes of Maxwell's feet on a little bit of paper and we were then asked what shoe's we liked from Clarks huge range. We showed the member of staff the shoes we liked and she went off into the store room to find some in Maxwell's size.


We were presented with 2 lovely pairs of shoes which Ben and I both liked for Maxwell, one pair was Clark's boys GORE-TEX boots and the other pair were Clarks boys suede boots. Maxwell tried both pairs of shoes on and they both looked lovely however we had to decide on one pair, after a lot of deliberation we decided to choose the GORE-TEX boots for Maxwell.

The FleetUpGTXCognac Leather GORE-TEX boots which we purchased for Maxwell had lots of features which we loved. The boots are waterproof which means that they are perfect for Maxwell to wear at preschool and to and from preschool in wetter weather, the boots are breathable which is great if Maxwell's feet are to get hot and the boots also have a zip on which makes them easy to get on and off however it also means that they will stay secure on Maxwell's feet. The FleetUpGTXCognac Leather GORE-TEX boots were priced at £50 which is a little more than I usually spend on Maxwell's shoes but given the boot's features and the style of them I would be happy to pay for the boots again in the next size up. 

Whilst we were at Clarks we also picked Maxwell a pair of wellies up. We picked the simple ones for Maxwell which were priced at just £10. The wellies came in either yellow and black or blue and red. We choose the blue and red one's for Maxwell and Maxwell is looking forward to wearing his new wellies to preschool in the wetter weather. 

You are able to view a wide range of boys boots over on the Clarks website. You can also view the wide range of boys boots in a Clarks store near you. I am extremely happy with Maxwell's new shoes and I could not fault the staff member who helped us when picking Maxwell's shoes. She was friendly, fast but also shared lots of information with us about what she was doing and about the shoes which she picked for us. I find that Clarks shoes are great value for money along with the service which you received from their staff members.  


I did not receive any financial reward for writing this review.
However we did receive the product for review purposes. Everything written in this post is my own, honest opinion.

  3. We love Clarks! Now my daughter is older, she still has a pair of Clarks shoes and has supermarket brands as well and Clarks shoes always outlast them. Good quality and gives you the confidence that they've been professionally fitted.

  6. So the first shoes were clarks - I don't know if I should continue to pay clarks prices for the rest or just get measured there and shop elsewhere - the dilemma.

    My daughter loves going for shoes. She's even started feeling where her toes are when you put her shoes on! Typical girl already, or maybe I just buy her too many shoes :-)

  16. The staff at our Clarks are never pushy, so you don't feel awkward if you just want to get your children's feet measured.

  17. Clarks is so utterly professional, they know how to treat families and they have a reputation for being excellent with children's feet. Sounds as if he really enjoyed the experience!

  18. Clarks are brilliant with my 2 children, they are always so professional, polite and engaging! THere is never any pressure to buy, and they have often told me there is no need to purchase new shoes yet, come back in another 4-6 weeks. Their shoes are great quality too, although my eldest doesn't get on with any shoes that have lights on the side rather than in the sole as she says she can feel them.
