Shoes.co.uk is a real online shoe shop with probably the best and most easy to remember name you could possibly think of! We are a family run company based in South Manchester with a distribution hub in Altrincham, Cheshire.
The company was started by ex Barratts Shoes Buyer Nigel Carr who bought the domain name in the late nineteen nineties. Nigel has a long association with the shoe business starting at Dolcis as a trainee store manager in the early eighties and working at Timpson Shoes in Manchester soon after. After nearly nine years at Barratts buying Men's and Children's shoes Nigel set up a design and import agency working with factories in Portugal and Italy. The Italian factory was contracted to make shoes for Ben Sherman and the two companies grew hugely in the late nineties. In 2006 Nigel left the supply businesses behind and set up Shoes.co.uk Ltd.
Shoes.co.uk now sells more than 90 collections of shoes, boots, sandals and bags for Men, Women and Children. Around fifty percent of all orders are dispatched from our warehouse with the remainder coming directly from the brands themselves. We only stock 100% authentic branded products and do not source any copies or parralelly sourced items from the grey market, so you can always be assured of the best quality from what we sell.
Nigel is a huge fan of music which spans punk, post punk and new wave but also ecompasses the 'intelligent' dance and electronic mayhem of Clark and The Aphex Twn. He writes for both Penny Black and Louder Than War.
