Boot Fitting

Our staff team are extremely knowledgeable and are more than happy to spend time with every individual to ensure the best fit and that the most appropriate footwear is found. All staff regardless of position knows the importance of the right fitting boot and as such a first class training programme exists to ensure your boots are comfortable and fit properly. Some of our staff team have further developed their knowledge of boot fitting, in order that they can help customers with a whole range of boot difficulties, from bio-mechanical issues to boot moulding. If you feel you could benefit from this extra knowledge, please contact the store to arrange to see one of these team members.
