Swift, clear and helpful response to email query; great service, thank you.
Service rating : I wanted to by Start-rite but couldn't find anywhere that had a good range in Shropshire so chose to buy online. Big mistake. Delivery company couldn't find our address so delivery was delayed. After such a long wait I let my daughter wear them when they arrived but I should really have sent them back as they didn't fit properly.Product rating : OK but the buckles are really hard for her to undo and, as I said in my last comment, the fit is very poor.
I was really impressed by the speed of delivery in spite of snowy weather conditions I recieved the shoes in 2 days.
Service rating : super delivery nice and fastProduct rating : all my children wear shoes from hear excellent quality product and look very smart for schoolwear

Service rating : I still haven't received my order.Product rating : I cannot comment in the shoes as I haven't received them.
Service rating : I am so very pleased with the quality of these shoes. I have been in the position of buying Start-Rite shoes for children for some thirty years now and the product remains the very best. In addition, the company has only ever been the most responsive, helpful and attentive a customer could hope for. Long may the company continue.Product rating : They are beautiful! A truly wonderful little girls shoe. They are exactly what you see on the web site.

Service rating : rasProduct rating : .
Service rating : They are still made to the lovely high standard, I have bought these shoes for more than 30years for my daughters'..... it is always a shame that the toes get scuffed before the actual shoes wear out, the price has gone up a lotProduct rating : I love this classic shoe, it is just a shame that I cannot buy them in a shoe shop near where I live...noone stocks classic shoes anymore, very sad. The "modern" childrens shoe shops have horrendous shoes...all plastic,glittery and pink. I love this shoe and so do my daughters and their daughters
Service rating : quick delivery, good choice of style of shoesProduct rating : lovely colour and style
Service rating : delivery excellentProduct rating : The shoes are beautiful,especially for my daughters first shoes and will be put in a presentation box after she has used them as a wonderful memory.
Service rating : There were a couple of problems with the order unfortunately - on one set of shoes the buckle broke almost immediately, and the other had the wrong colour inside the box. However the experience rates "Good" overall due to the high quality of the customer support team, who guided me well through their returns process and always responded to queries quickly and efficiently.Product rating : A nice shoe but let down by the buckle quality - hopefully just on the one we received, but a five-year-old should not be able to break a buckle in a week with normal use.
Have used Start-rite shoes for many years and am still as happy with the shoes as i always have been. Loved the free delivery offer!
Service rating : Shoes - excellent.
Traditional styles, sensible and stylish and very well well made.
Love the English Classics.
Online service is dreadful. Have had so much trouble with your deliverers and has cost fextra postage.
Also, why can't you post outside the UK? We live in Ireland with limitefd Start-Rite stockists - especially of the English Classics.. Silly. Very very sillyProduct rating : Clare - excellent shoe, very stylish in a retro way.
Less is more. the classics always outlive fashion trends.
Service rating : I find Start-rite shoes are the most hard-wearing shoes currently on the market, particularly for school.Product rating : The upper is excellent but I do feel the sole does, unfortunately, wear down rather quickly, particularly at the front of the shoe and the heel does become hollow. Also, it is a pity that Clare is no longer available in Black Patent.
Easy ordering process, nice website, great quality shoe. Nothing to say but will definately order again from the site. Trustworthy, professional, quality. All good!! Thankyou for the complimentary Horrid Henry Book too.
Service rating : Love the classic simple styles and they have a lovely traditional, well made English feel. I would like them every time for my girls but it is frustrating not being able to try on the style that I prefer-clare-which I couldn't find in any retail outletsProduct rating : Love the clare style for school and my daughter loves them too. See above.
Service rating : Free returns means you can try at home to check the fit.Product rating : Beautiful classic shoes.
always first class
I was very sceptical about the digital photography based sizing but it worked perfectly.
Service rating : Lovely to be Able to order on line - only slightly annoying that you can change any order over the phone but have to go back through the websiteProduct rating : absolutely love them - beautiful shoes!
