Overseas clients

Since 1996 we have welcomed a number of clients from Europe and the United States of America, but this always entailed visits to the UK for measuring and fitting of footwear.  We are pleased to say we can now make footwear without the need to visit the UK.


We post out a client pack which includes a 'plantar surface impression box' so that we can get the exact shape of your foot, and a leaflet explain the measures you need to provide of your foot.  We also ask you to send in photographs of your feet so that we can get a better picture of your problems.  Lastly it would be helpful if you could obtain a digital scan made of your foot, this is possible using inexpensive scanner that fits to your ipad or similar.


With that information we can make shoes and boots for you that will help with your mobility.

It takes around six months to complete each pair allowing for mailing the footwear backwards and forwards for fittings, and of course there is an additional cost to cover postage for fittings etc, over and above our standard prices, but we hope you think it is worth it.


Deposits and Cancellations 

A deposit of 50% of the agreed cost is payable before work commences, with the balance to be paid after the footwear is fitted and before completion.

If at any time you wish to cancel your order before completion of the footwear, you will be required to pay for all the work done to the cancellation date. 


All invoices are calculated in £ sterling and payments should be converted into £ sterling at the rate on the date of payment.  The client will be liable to pay any international bank charges for transactions relating to the account.

Additional Items

The client will be liable for all duties payable on carriage both into and out of the United Kingdom.
