Possibly but surely the whole point of buying clarks shoes for children is that you get them fitted in the shop?

Yes you can order kids shoes online but you have to get them delivered to a store as they have to check the fitting, well this is what i was told in my local store, hope the sale stuff goes on the web too:roll:

Oh good, I've been hoping for a sale soon. My 2 year old has such good timing with her growth spurts, bless her.

Never had a pair of shoes from Clarks that have fit my son properly and they always have about four times the amount of girls shoes in the sale. Hate the shop but voted hot because it is a deal if you buy shoes there.

Agreed, I am lucky having girls and always get good shoes, but my sister has boys and never manages to get decent sale shoes.

Have to agree wholeheartedly. Clarks are pushing shoes out the door with a 'close enough' attitude as far as measuring childs feet. The stitching often unravels and the shoes look tatty quite quickly. And Clarks ain't cheap. Remember,no VAT on childrens shoes, so gross up for adult price equivalent. Sorry for the rant :oops:

I like Clarks shoes - but I have to admit that the trainers have very little grip in the wet. Also when I took my young daughter to the park, her new Clarks trainers couldn't even grip the adventure playground - she slid everywhere, and lost confidence in her abilities.

And sometimes the shoe doesn't come up in the size measured, and then you are recommended to move up or down a size to make sure the shoe fits. Why have the sizes in this case?

Saying this - I am still going to go to Clarks on Monday and see what is in the sale.

This is hot, I wouldn't be venturing down there unless I thought it was worthwhile!

I'm not too impressed with Clarks in my town. They measure my dd's feet and then proceed to try ten styles in completely random sizes, possibly not their fault, but what's the point in measuring her feet? They also tried telling me that she doesn't have narrow feet even though she does. I was a Saturday girl for years in shoe shops and trained to fit children's shoes (strangely it's one of those things I've never forgotten) so I have some experience. In the sale I just do it myself and go and buy them and they've never said anything.

These are anecdotes that genuinely happened to us:

[LIST]
[*]2 clarks shops in our town. Measured at one, but got measured a different size and width from the other on the same day.
[*]Never ever have the size we want in the style we want.
[*]Got measured once, bought shoes in that size went back 2 weeks later, they remeasured and suggested SMALLER size.

[*]Went to the Clarks factory shops in Clarks Village, Street, Somerset. No stock. Boy 8 years od, girl 6.
[/LIST]

They have a great rep but often don't live up to their brand.

Despite all that, I''ll be there on Monday trying to get school shoes. Take a ticket, go off do shopping come back 1/2 hour later.

Hot.

Most of my littles ones shoes from here fall to pieces within a few weeks and they always say not the shoes but the child - surely a pair should last more then 14 outings on a 2 year old!

The proof is when you buy a cheapo pair from somewhere else and they last until they outgrow them.

Never had any bother with our kids shoes from clarks. Miss tantrum (aged 2 - surprisingly enough) currently has a pair that still looks perfect and she has woren them everyday nearly for 4-5 months. Friend bought her kid some school shoes out Asda as he only had a month of school left - they were destroyed within the week.

Anyway hot hot hot ! If you go in on monday and they have girls boots on sale could you post please to let me know.

4-5 months! You definitely need her feet measuring!

Yeap my children also stay the same size for long periods of time. I have them measured regularly - and often can't wait to replace their old shoes, but I do wait until the shoes are either worn out or grown out.

Went into town today and this sale is on already - kids shoes were 50% off and they had trainers and school shoes in stock. Adults were on sale too but I didn't look at them.

I went to town today too - and Enfield had adults shoes already on the sale and a few pair of kiddies trainers reduced. I don't think the kiddies shoes really had the full sale on yet!

Went to St Neots store this morning and they had started their sale aswell but only as above Trainers and School Shoes does anyone know if any boots being added?

voted hot

A few kids trainers only at present alongside the adults. Hoping boots will be added tomorrow.

Went to Clarks in Guildford on Sat. Seemed to be a 50% sale going on. Of course anything fancy like clarks air boots were at full price.

After establishing they didnt have the shoe in the style I wanted I was shown some Timberland boots and sold them at £55. They were down from £115. Who knows what price they truly are meant to be.

Seemsed to be a comfy fit. according to the sales staff you pay for what you get. Clarks are apparently the sainsbury of the shoe market in many way. where timberland are your BP or coca cola.

Go figure. Still plenty of different shoes on the sale. Didnt go to the kids section though. Bit tall for that and my feet are far too big now. :whistling:

Ohh not a bad mommy thank you! Her feet get measured every 2 months and I check myself too! She is small made, 2.5 yrs old and still a size 5.5. Nothing grows too quick not even her feet! Thank you for the advice though

Point I was trying to make was that my experience with clarks for active toddlers has been good.

Any info on the boots before I head into town?

The kids sale is on in Wokingham but I didn't think the choice was that good!

Not too much choice in Basildon. Plenty of black girl's school shoes. Had my dd's feet measured, same size but wanted to get her some trainers. Picked up a pair which were the same length but a letter wider with the feet. I put them on her and asked the shop assistant to check the fit and he said that they were fine. He had to get someone else to do the till and she wrote on the receipt self fitted. How were they self fitted?! I just put them on her feet!

Very little in my local and all in G fitting.

I've just got back from our Clarks at Mothercare WOrld in Edmonton, and there was a bit of choice from shoes, trainers and boots.

I managed to get some school shoes for my son, and a pair of trainers for my daughter! Both about 40% off

Bought my daughter a pair today.. She actually needs new shoes since her current pair are nearly too small now. I bought 2 pairs in summer from Clarks for £5 pounds a pair and the same shoes from that time were on sale again but at £12! I tried looking for the pair i bought today on their website and it's not there. Am a bit dubious as to whether they are just bringing out old stock on sale. I should have just gone to the outlet instead?
