Happy Soles is an independent children’s shoe shop in the Cathedral Quarter of Lincoln that specialises in quality European brands.
Previously known as Klogz, the shop has been trading in the city for twenty years, seeing new generations of the same families returning for the quality and service that is hard to find in high street multiples. Stocking something a little different in school and fashion shoes, the shop covers the whole range from first walkers to adult sizes.
Current owner Michele Guest took over in the summer of 2018 following a lengthy career in further education and decided to give the shop a rebrand and facelift (including the addition of a VIP fitting area complete with gold thrones for those special little people in your life) whilst also staying true to the shop’s core values.
Michele is supported by the existing experienced and knowledgeable team of three shoe fitters who are all parents themselves and experts in fitting children’s shoes. Michele herself is also a qualified member of the Society of Shoe Fitters, a national organisation that promotes good foot health and shoe fitting and provides its members with holistic training right through from the anatomy of the foot to different shoe construction methods.
Children’s feet don’t complete their growth and development until late into the teenage years so having good quality, well-fitted footwear is an important investment in their future foot health. This is why the team at Happy Soles will always prioritise getting the best fit possible and can be trusted to put the child’s needs first.
