The Shoe Detective - a unique service to help you walk in comfort.

When you have difficulty in finding shoes to fit, shopping for shoes can become a pain, rather than a pleasure.  Some of the reasons for this can be:

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Rheumatoid arthritis

  • Bunions, hammer toes

  • Swollen feet

  • Injury, accidents 

  • Stroke

  • Parkinson's Disease

  • CMT - Charcot Marie Tooth 

  • Finding shoes for use with foot orthoses

Money can be wasted on driving miles to find a shop that might be able to help, or buying online only to have to return them all for exchange or refund.

My role is to research all the footwear brands, where they are available, which products can help you - and importantly, work out the correct size and style for your particular feet.

In April 2011, I returned from living in Australia after 21 years, where I trained and gained certification, as a Certified Pedorthist Retailer.   I settled in Stratford upon Avon to open the UK's first dedicated shoe shop for problem feet - ShoeMed.  Boris, my Parson Russell, and I have spent many hours in the shop together ! After selling ShoeMed, I have moved back to my original home, Kent, and have decided to work in a different manner to help people find the perfect shoes.   I offer a completely unique, independent service as your personal consultant to help you find the best place to buy your shoes.  This includes the brand, size and style.   During the Covid-19 pandemic, I started doing many video calls for shoe fittings with success, so I can help you no matter where you live.  

Home visits are also available and I do bring along stock for fittings and trying on.
