If your little one is just beginning their walking journey I advise a visit to my favourite local children’s shoe shop, Oddsox.
Situated in Bishopston, Oddsox – launched 5 years ago by Sarah and Jo, each a mum of three – offers a variety of beautiful shoes from toddlers to teenagers.
Included in the wide range of children’s shoes at Oddsox are First Walkers: soft yet sturdy shoes especially for young children who are just starting to show an interest in walking independently.
First Walkers are for toddlers taking their first steps. The range of styles at Oddsox offer durability and protection.
The health of children’s feet is absolute first priority at Oddsox and all staff are professionally trained to measure children’s feet and fit shoes.
Sarah explains, “We are passionate about getting a really good fit. We choose shoes designed with the health of feet in mind and with style a very close second”.
Oddsox Shoes is also a great space for its purpose; it is light, airy and comfortable and includes interesting toys to occupy young children. Conveniently, there is free parking outside.
The whole team are very friendly, kind and patient with children who are new to shoe shopping so do not worry if you think your child will be anxious.
Sarah and Jo are also happy to make provision for children with additional needs.
Loyalty cards are also available which give a 30% discount off the 6th pair of shoes.
Having been a regular fixture on Gloucester Road for 5 years, Jo told me how wonderful it was fitting first shoes to customers who are now buying school shoes several years later!
And, as well as First Walkers, Oddsox specialises in all children’s shoes including school shoes and sandals. Oddsox has now branched out into adult shoes and boots, with brands such as Saltwater, Camper and Birkenstock.
You can find Oddsox at 204 Gloucester Road, Bishopston and you can be sure of a friendly welcome as well as great shoes.
Sarah and Jo pride themselves on great service and their motto is ‘beautiful shoes for growing feet’.
