As a mum of three, I had always struggled to find good fitting, (and fashionable) shoes for my children, and often had to trail them all around town, sit and wait for ages in various shops only to come away empty handed. It seemed that although there were plenty of shops around, there just wasn't the choice available, and what should have been an enjoyable outing often ended up in disappointment.
That's when I decided to open up a kids' shoe shop called Hopscotch.
Choice is something that there is plenty of at Hopscotch whether it's a first pre-walker, party shoe, school shoe, trainer, sandal or boot. And with brands including Start-rite, Lelli Kelly, Geox, Converse, Ricosta, Primigi, Angulus, UGG and Crocs there is something for everyone whether you want an every day shoe at a reasonable price or want to spend a bit more on something special.
What's more, all the staff at Hopscotch are fully trained shoe fitters who will do their utmost to find the best fitting shoes for your child whether their feet are wide, narrow or somewhere in the middle. They are also experienced in fitting shoes for children that require orthopedic insoles, and having a qualified member of the Society of Shoe fitters dedicated to each shop means that there is always someone on hand to help with any special concerns.
As for trailing around town, there's none of that at Hopscotch as all shops have plenty of FREE parking right on their doorstep. In fact everything about Hopscotch is designed to make your shoe shopping experience easy and enjoyable.
The warm welcome and bright, airy feel as you walk in the door is the first indication that this shop is special. Little ones can run off to play in the play area leaving parents and older children free to browse through the fabulous selection of shoes. There's also a great selection of gifts and accessories that may catch your eye which make perfect presents for birthdays and special occasions.
All in all, if it's shoes you need, Hopscotch is the only place you need to go. From babies to teenagers, Hopscotch will have something for you, and if we don't we'll do our best to get it for you.
