MAKE sure you’re buying the right shoes for you – make tracks for Footprints.
The 10 Westgate, Peterborough, shoe store is the only fitting specialist in the city. Footprints is a member of the Society of Shoe Fitters and manageress Rosemary Gray, who has 36 years’ experience in the trade, says: “As fitting specialists we offer a proper traditional service, ensuring customers get the best shoes for their needs and the correct fit.” Rosemary is a tutor for the Society and all Footprints staff are fully-trained with the organisation, which aims to ensure the shoe industry gives the best possible help to the public with shoe fitting, foot care and shoe buying.
The store can also cater for special footwear needs and has ladies’ width fittings in 1E, 2E 4E, 6E and 8E. Footprints has a wide range of good quality footwear for children and ladies to suit all tastes and needs and is about to launch its autumn/winter ranges.
New for the season is footwear by Van Dal and Easy B, to complement the store’s other ranges – Hotter, Rieker, Tamaris, FitFlop and Moshulu slippers. You won’t find the Hotter and Van Dal main brands anywhere else in the city, and Rieker, Tamaris and Moshulu are also exclusive to Footprints. Van Dal offers dress shoes in wide fittings and Easy B caters for ladies with special foot needs. Rieker, Tamaris and Hotter products are soft, light and flexible. Hotter footwear embraces the comfort concept, while Rieker sell 15 million pairs of shoes worldwide each year. German manufacturers Tamaris cater for young mums with their soft shoes and the Moshulu slipper range is also trendy. Footprints’ children’s footwear includes proven names like Start Rite and Ricosta. The experts say that about 70 per cent of foot problems can be avoided with proper fitting shoes – let Footprints put you on the right path.
