The Children's Shop

Our children’s shop is recognised as one of the best in the United Kingdom. Our reputation has been built over centuries and we have become a recognised local brand.

As one of the biggest independent stockists of Clarks and Geox children’s shoes, we pay close attention to children’s fashion ensuring we stock other key brands including Converse Lelli Kelly and Dr Martens. All this in mind our key priority is your child’s foot health, with this in mind the thing that is most important to us is fitting children’s shoes.

Our trained fitters will measure your child’s feet and help find the perfect pair of shoes ensuring your child has adequate growing room in length as well as width. They are on hand to offer you as much or as little advice as you require.

How we train our fitters

We realise that the fit of every style of shoe differs and an extensive knowledge of product is key to ensure the perfect fit. We encourage our team to see each foot as unique, and to make sure that we provide the best level of service for all our customers. All our team members complete a comprehensive training course. Every fitter is trained to use our hand measuring gauges. As well as in-store fit training we utilise training available from brands like Clarks and Startrite we also have 6 members of the Society of Shoe Fitters

First Shoes

Correctly fitted first shoes are an important first step to the healthy development of tiny feet. At The Golden Boot we want to ensure that you and your child have a really special first shoe experience to treasure and remember forever. We have a dedicated first shoe department with a great range of shoes we will also offer you a complimentary gift pack which includes a photograph of your child’s first shoe experience.

The Golden Boot Engine Shed

We love our trains at The Golden Boot, and so do the children who come to our shop. We have four model engines which are fully operational and are triggered with a 10p coin.
