Clarks kids shoes sale started instore today

I've had a search for this and couldn't find anything - although search is a bit dodgy at the moment so apologies if its already posted.

Thought people might like to know that the Clarks kids shoe sale started today. All shoes in the sale seem to be at least half price. I managed to get three pairs for my two for £36 which have have cost £72 before the sale started.

I'd be quick though as people were buying loads when I was in. Also worth noting that unworn shoes can be returned up to 25th January for a refund.

As far as I'm aware this is instore only

Thanks! Clarks shoes are so expensive (though worth the extra expense) so a sale is great!
#2
Wasn't on at Cribbs Causeway today!

The assistant in the store I went in to said it wasn't supposed to start until tomorrow but had started a day early, so maybe some stores are actually starting tomorrow.

I've got to agree Kelly that its definitely worth going to Clarks for the service you receive which makes sure you get shoes that fit properly. It is flipping expensive though, I spend more on a pair of shoes/trainers for a two year old than I do on a pair for myself :w00t:

It was a bit like the Next sale in my local store with 2 people taking armfuls of shoes of which I think half will be returned.

Our local store had the kids sale shoes out today (5th Dec, Birkenhead) - got some lovely boys shoes for £14.
#5
excellent, thankyou, when you 3 kids to shoe, it cost an absolute fortune, so know where we are going after school tommorrow.:thumbsup:
#6
Is it just me who thinks that Clarks kid's shoes are bobbins? We've found that they always scuff badly with no effort - although they may not fall apart, it doesn't take long before they look like they've been reclaimed from a shoe bank. Always found M&S shoes to be much better wearing.

Be careful. I buy the shoes because they are good quality, and usually well made. But to assume your fitter has done a good job is very dodgy. Beware the youngsters. I am sorry if that sounds awful but I have had some truly terrible experiences, with the trained fitters. (Take Mic***** in Exeter, who treated my daughter to a pair of shoes that to my-now trained eye-did not fit and informed me I could put them in a hot wash if they were loose) My other daughter was fitted in a pair of shoes which rubbed the top of her toe and made a hole in the shoe. 2 fitters agreed that the shoes were not right for her feet, and fitted another pair, which in there eyes fitted 'much better' and were a 'good style for her low instep' (flatfoot:-D ) I was advised that it sould be a straight swap. At the till as I had no receipt (which I had stressed at the beginning of the trip) they said the shoes had to be returned at there last value on the records, which was not £26 but.......£5, leaving me only £21 to pay.
Then there was the time my other daughter was measured a 10E and accidently fitted in a 11F! Some of the fitters are excellent but some are absolutely ****, and if you have kids you yourself are often as good as the fitter, if not better. I do not trust any of them. Last time i went the girl measuring us was taken aside and reprimanded, as the idea was to pull the shoe gently to see if it slipped, not yank it so hard it hurt the child. It was pointed out that any shoe would come of if pulled that hard, the senior fitter then went on to fit my child in one of the 3 pairs 'our' fitter had discarded as slipping.
Never assume they have done a good job, always check for yourself if you have doubts.

I couldn't agree more with what you said. I always make sure I check myself. Also I think if possible you should try to avoid going in on the weekend as you're more likely to served by a Saturday Girl (I don't think I've ever seen a man working in Clarks) who only works a few hours a week.

Its a bit cheeky adding smilies into my post you quoted. ;-) :-D although it does highlight what you're referring to.

Sorry totally didn't mean to be rude. It was not meant to put your comment down at all. Just a light hearted reference.

Don't worry about it, I wasn't offended or anything, and was smiling as I typed it, I tried to put some smileys in to show that it was also light hearted Thats the trouble with t'internet, people just don't know the tone of your posts.

Anyway I wouldn't post anything confrontational to anyone with a username like yours. :?

Thanks for the posting. Just gone and got 2 pairs for my son reduced to £14 from £26. Heat and rep added.

Yup, my dad worked in a shoe shop about 25-30 years ago, but still remembers his training. He always checked our shoes and wouldnt let the assistant get away with "Well if you use these insoles...." etc. There were many times when we would have had illfitting shoes if he hadnt checked them

Clarkes shoes are expensive, esp the kid's shoes. Bought a pair of shoes for myself, at the beginning of the year, for £32. Also bought a pair for my the 5 year old son, for £36!! even shoes for our 1 yo cost £24!! Not sure if they are worth it, but we keep going back!! So any Clarkes kids shoes are very welcome :)

I don't understand anyone who adds 18 question marks to the end of their statement.

:P I jest. Kinda.

Clarks had a bad rep for 'style' when I was growing up - only the dorky kids wore them (for dorky, I guess you could translate that to mean kids with parents who were better off than most in my area and could afford to buy something well made and lasting than the lastest 'high fashion' item for pennies from 'down the market'). But ultimately, they didn't look 'good'.

I've learnt as I've matured into adulthood (with two kids of my own) that there is more to life than judging people by the shoes they wear - and anyway, in the last few years Clarks have really transformed themselves with a more modern image and the styles they sell are often comparable to what's 'in'.

Edit to add: If it wasn't absolutely bucketing with rain at the mo I'd take a trip into town to see if there's anything suitable for my daughter as she needs a new pair for school. Considering how the black 'ballet' pump is still clinging in there as what most girls are wearing with their uniform (apart from the black kickers with pink stitching she wears when the weather is particularly rubbish) there's every possibility that Clarks will have a decent leather pair that won't make her feet stink if they get wet/worn once without socks... :D

Whilst not cheap they are comfortable and hard wearing - its not a matter of understanding but priorities I guess.

We'll be checking out the sale - thanks OP.

Got any kids? No? Got kids with wide feet? No?

Clarks shoes are [possibly] overpriced [depends if you think you can get comparable shoes] and the service isn't always what it should be. However if you're unsure about ill fitting shoes then say so! Had kids for over 10 years and only on a few occasions did I feel that the service was poor - each time we said something a more experienced person was made available.

They have some terrible ideas of keeping customers however - last year they introduced 'customer pays for shoes ordered in' - just WTH do they think does to their *loyal* customers? My local shop was really apologetic when they informed me of the new rule but the Broadmead branch in Bristol [where I went to pick said size up] suggested it was good to make people pay as it meant they wouldn't have to waste time with people they couldn't sell a shoe [from the stockroom] to. I said I disagreed and then she argued that if I bought something from the Internet I'd pay for postage! Duh - get a grip I was thinking!

Glad to see people are benefiting from this, especially as its money saving on something you have to buy rather than buying something just because its a mega-bargain like the most of the stuff I buy off HUKD.:-D
#19
my son has has clarks right from word dot! i know they arent the cheapest shoes, but im not fussed, i mean im willing to pay for timberlands for him so why not clarks too? he looks great in them and i have never had a ill fitting pair to date. remarks as why would anybody buy them, well why wouldnt anybody buy them?! in my opinion they are the best for my son and only the best will do! so there lol!!

Does anyone know the returns policy???

I brought a full price pair at the weekend, I would buy another at sale price, and take them back with the weekend receipt as new??.

I hate being ripped off, they would of known about the sale..
#21
Darlington store started yesterday - was lucky enough to spot it on my way home from work. Got two pairs and saved £34! Both didn't fit so took them back this morning and replaced with different sizes (extremely lucky)
Great deal

Quoted from the back of my receipt

If you are not entirely happy with your unworn purchase, please feel free to return it to any Clarks store (excluding our Factory Outlets) within 28 days where we will offer you an exchange or a full refund. The unworn purchase must be in its original condition and you must retain the receipt as proof of purchase.

Got 3 kids from 1 to 11, every one of them wear clarks shoes - why? Cos if they get a blister, they refund/exchange them, if they wear too quickly, they refund/exchange them, if they size them wrong (as long as their staff have done it) they refund/exchange them, without quibble (in my experience). So i am sure they will not quibble over an unworn pair. Reminds me, sorry to go off track here, two years ago, i bought a £50 puffa jacket for my son out of Gap, only to find a week later it was half price. Bought the half price one, went home got the first jacket (still unworn with label), took the old full price one back with the Full price receipt - got a refund. 30 miles later, discovered that they have a policy that if you buy an item which is reduced within 14 days, they will automatically refund the difference upon showing the original receipt anyway, which was still in my wallet all along. DOH.

OK, Just my £0.02's worth here: My 5 year old son and 3 year old daughter has had Clarks since they could walk. I always had them as a child, so one thing I shouldn't skimp on is shoes for my kids. However......

There's just 2 problems with Clarks these days in my opinion:-

1) Staff. Usually not enough in store and they also seem to have a high turnover (poss. due to low wages - who knows). Consequently there are very few "experienced" staff to hand. By experienced I'm talking about people that have fitted more shoes than I've had hot dinners. Someone that can tell a badly fitting shoe at 10 yards - not some girl whose just left college and had the "Clarks induction" course. There doesn't seem to be any longevity or real experience in this trade anymore.

2) Quality of shoes. Used to be OK - Now Terrible!!! Having returned 3 pairs in 4 months all with the same fault (Usually where the leather loop is, it wears on the strap that secures the velcro - hope this makes some sense). I think that Clarks now make huge profits and I guess most of their shoes are probably made in the far east using cheap labour and, in my opinion cheap materials. I've given up on Clarks and find Startright shoes somewhat better.

I used to work in a Clarks shoe shop:oops:

Just bought 2 pairs of girls school shoes reduced from £30.00 to £10.00
These are to replace a pair bought from BHS and which lasted 1 week before being scuffed beyond repair, at least with Clarks you can actually repair the scuffing, these BHS ones although leather, could not be saved with any amount of scuff treatment and love.
