If I am honest when thinking of where to shop for children’s shoes Brantano is not the first place that springs to mind. However, after our recent visit to the Gloucester branch of the shoe superstore I will definitely be adding it to the top of my list!
Brantano offer a huge range of adults and kids shoes in a variety of styles and carry many of the big brands for children such as Clarks, Skechers and Start-Rite to name a few. We were on the hunt for a good quality pair of boots or shoes for the winter as G’s feet have grown loads recently. Brantano offer measuring by fully trained staff who were very thorough and made the whole experience really fun. (Often feet measuring in our house becomes a really traumatic experience!)
Brantano’s main aim is to provide customers with a stress free shopping experience, as most of their stores are situated on out of town retail parks making a visit easy and convenient. Also all the shoes are out in pairs and ready to try on, taking the hassle out of footwear shopping. Not only do Brantano do a great range of trainers and shoes for everyday but they also have an incredibly comprehensive selection of school shoes so their is a choice for every taste and budget. The location of the Gloucester branch was so convenient and was situated on a park with Matalan so I was able to combine our visit with stocking up on some much needed school shirts.
G chose his own shoes and I have to say I was very happy with his choices.
Brantano also give you a handy leaflet with your child’s shoe size written down and a suggestion as to when to come back and be remeasured. A great reminder for parents like me who sometimes can’t remember when feet were last measured! The leaflet is also packed with information and some useful checklists for what you need to remember for kitting children out for school each term.
During half term Brantano branches across the country have a great range of special offers and discounts on kids shoes (and adults too!) so definitely worth a visit.
