My guilty pleasure of special shoes and boots!

First discovered Crispins in the Exchange Manchester back in the early eighties.I used to save my money from part time jobs while at college in order to be in a world of very special shoes that actually fit and the choice was a joy to behold.Devastation when the branch closed,so train journeys to London became a less frequent occasion.But then online purchasing brought back the divine experience of European footwear that never diminishes over the years.Shoes that actually do not show their age,due to the exquisite workmanship and leathers.You feel like a million dollars with sublime footwear to encase your feet.Crispins I thank you for giving me so much pleasure over many years by sourcing very special footwear for a lady with larger feet. (January 2018)

Crispins was a lucky charm to find.

Being a tall lady with size 42-43-44 sometimes, I grew up thinking that all i’d be left with is men’s trainers and ugly women’s shoes that I think even my grandma would never wear.. Crispins was a lucky charm to find, the variety, the shapes, the colours! As I don’t live in England and there are no similar stores back home, this is a real lifesaver - I can both fly over and enjoy the shopping, or enjoy the shopping (again) online and have the shoes fly over to me!:) Crispins cater for all your needs and have extremely nice staff! Love the place :) (October 2017)

The first thing I do when visiting London is make a beeline for Crispins.

The first thing I do when visiting London is make a beeline for Crispins in Chiltern Street. Its one of my pleasures/weaknesses! My last purchase was a beautiful pair of Stuart Weitzman sandles. The assistant was friendly and patient. She brought out several different shoes in a variety of half sizes, and gave me honest feedback so months later I was still very happy with the choice!I've been shopping at Crispins for years, after a tall friend lent me a pair of boots when we were teenagers. Crispins has a great range of stylish and very high quality shoes and boots. (October 2017)

Staff that are happy to let you try as many shoes as needed to find the right pair.

When you have to travel a long way to buy your shoes it’s such a pleasure to be greeted by warm, friendly staff that are happy to let let you try as many shoes as needed to find the right pair (or pairs!) it makes shoe shopping one of life’s pleasures rather than the nightmare It used to be. Now I look forward to my twice yearly shopping trip to London. Well done Crispins. Keep up the good work (October 2017)

Totally spoilt for choice.

When I walk into Crispins I am like a child in a candy shop , totally spoilt for choice. The shoes on offer have so much more finesse and style than other suppliers of larger shoes. They are beautifully made and always on trend . Thank you Crispins.(October 2017)

Crispins is my first choice for shoes, all beautiful and long lasting.

Crispins is an absolute delight. All shoes on display are my size and I can't say how good that makes me feel. Crispins is my first choice for shoes, all beautiful and long lasting. Style and quality encourage me to return. Keep doing what you are doing, thank you. (October 2017)

Crispins has an excellent range.

Great shop and friendly staff.  I have been visiting and buying shoes at Crispins for many years and have now introduced my two daughters to the store.  The shoes are great quality, which doesn't come cheap, but they are always well made and feel very comfortable to wear.  Crispins shoes are always flattering to the foot as well which many other manufacturers fail to offer. Crispins has an excellent range, the more traditional and fashionable as well.   It has been a pleasure buying shoes here. (October 2017)

I can not fault the service in person or over the phone.

Fantastic shoes and fantastic service. I can not fault the service in person or over the phone. I don’t think I’ve bought shoes from anywhere but Crispins for well over a decade. Thank you. (October 2017)

Your service is first class.

Your range of shoes is superb, your staff are courteous and helpful and your service is first class. (October 2017)

Crispins not only has my size, but offers a wide variety of top quality, beautifully made shoes.

I am so thrilled to have found Crispins!!  I wear a size 12 to 12 ½ narrow in US sizes, and finding comfortable, high quality shoes is almost impossible.  Crispins not only has my size, but offers a wide variety of top quality, beautifully made shoes.  I appreciate that you try to offer free shipping for purchases at a certain level.  I'm planning a trip to London soon, and haven't told my husband my REAL reason for wanting to go - a stop at Crispins!  Thanks so much! (October 2017)

Discovering Crispins has honestly changed my life.

I have had problems finding shoes let alone anything fashionable since I was 15.  Discovering Crispins has honestly changed my life and my appearance/confidence for the better!   I’m a foot surgeon so I often recommend you to patients with larger feet and toe deformities or skin lesions related to incorrectly fitted/sized footwear.Keep up the good work. (October 2017)

 

No other shoe shop will ever come close.

If you have large, awkward feet and have struggled to find shoes that look good and are comfortable then look no further than Crispins. No other shoe shop will ever come close. (October 2017)

 

A perfect fit and shoes that get noticed.

The only shoeshop in London where I can guarantee a perfect fit and shoes that get noticed. (October 2017)

 

It has been a joy to find shop that sells sexy and practical shoes.

The best thing about Crispins Shoes, apart from the fact that they cater for women with larger feet, is their wide range of fashionable and quality footwear. Prior to discovering them I was found myself with a very limited choice with regard to Size 9 shoes. Many were dull and unflattering. It has been a joy to find shop that sells sexy and practical shoes in larger sizes. (October 2017)

 

Excellent service along with the high quality and stylish styles.

Excellent service along with the high quality and stylish styles of footwear that you offer. Visited the shop once when I was in London, a large selection of shoes and boots followed by friendly helpful staff.  Would throughly recommend anyone who has above average size feet to browse the easy to use website, as they have a wide range of styles for everyone's needs, at any time of the year. (October 2017)

Your shop is a paradise for me.

Your shop is a paradise for me, with my size 10 I never got a choice, I had just to take what was on offer for me and what was worse, it was always  literally a painful choice as well. Since I’ve been in London I walk on wings with your excellent and beautiful shoes, for every occasion the right ones, from my patent high heels to my leather trainers. That’s happiness!(October 2017)

Only 4 days London to Melbourne!!!

Thank you for the prompt delivery of my Paradis shoes - only 4 days London to Melbourne, fantastic!  The shoes are beautifully made and so comfortable, I love them. Thank you for offering such an excellent selection of shoes to choose from for larger size fittings. (October 2017)

Buying shoes from Crispins is always a pleasure.

Buying shoes from Crispins is always a pleasure - a special treat - especially as they live in one of my favourite areas of London. I never come away empty handed. Whether its a search for something very specific from their collection, an enjoyable browse through one of their sales or an unplanned foray because I 'just happen' to be passing. Gorgeous shoes to look at and try on with very helpful staff on hand happy to let me browse and go off to find my size. I used to think I had big feet but now just realise how lucky I am to be able to enjoy Crispins and the special people who I meet there. (October 2017)

I still own and wear shoes I bought from them 10 years ago

If you have larger than average feet, as I do; Crispins Shoes is a real boon. They specialise in large sizes and stock a range of widths as well. They have a good mix of on-trend shoes and style staples made by  high quality manufacturers.  Ever felt frustrated, because the size of your feet seems to mean that good quality, stylish shoes aren't available to you? Try Crispins; they've literally become my first port of call. I still own and wear shoes I bought from them 10 years ago and more. Kate (size 9.5). (October 2017)

I love Crispins.

Crispin's staff are always friendly and no amount of running up and down stairs for more pairs of shoes is too much for them. They are happy to spend hours with you trying on shoes. They have a good knowledge of all their stock and how it is likely to fit your foot. The range of shoe styles is impressive and many with narrow fit which is perfect for me. I love Crispins - it is the only place I ever buy shoes now. (October 2017)

Crispins Shoes are wonderful.

Having struggled to find stylish shoes in my size all my life, I think Crispins Shoes are wonderful.  The staff  are always so courteous and helpful.  I find it is a great advantage when the staff can advise which size would suit you best in the make of shoe you are ordering because they have all your details on hand.  Any shoes ordered always arrive when they are expected which is excellent.

I know they are expensive but worth every penny.I love it when people ask me where I get my lovely shoe!! (October 2017)

First class shoe shop !

Crispins has a fantastic range of footwear for those of us with larger feet, before I discovered Crispins it was impossible to find attractive modern shoes and boots that actually fit and looked good.

The service is always friendly and helpful with honest advice given when trying shoes, also when buying online if you call advice is always available. First class shoe shop ! (October 2017)


A life saver!

Finding Crispins Shoes was literally a life saver - well, most certainly a foot saver.  As a size 43 living in South Africa all of my life I just squeezed into 41s when I found ones which 'came up big'.  Upon moving to London 18 months ago I discovered Crispins Shoes and it been my best London discovery yet.  The staff are so warm and attentive, and the choice is amazing and being the average size stocked in the store and always having my size available is nothing short of miraculous for me! I realise that as a specialised shop all tastes need to be catered for but there is never a shortage of smart and casual shoes, boots and trainers that I would happily go home with (and very often do)....Oh yes, and their online shopping service is faultless (I wish I had known about this living in South Africa!).. (October 2017)

Love Crispin Shoes

Love Crispin Shoes, service is 5* and lovely shoes, made shopping for shoes for my larger derby an enjoyable experience when it used to be traumatic! (October 2017)

Impressed by the level of service

I have been a regular customer of Crispins for over 30 years and have always been impressed by the level of service and the friendly staff.  On my visit last week the boot I particularly liked wasn't available in my size, a special order was made and as I live in Cheshire the manager very kindly offered free delivery when the boot comes into the shop.  The quality of the footwear is excellent and there is always a huge selection which has only increased over the years.  I have only one negative comment, please, please, re-open a branch in Manchester and I will be eternally grateful! (October 2017)

In 1979 I first came to Crispins

In 1979 I first came to Crispins with my mum on a day trip to London, followed by annual trips ever since! Crispins was the only place to buy large shoes in those days, and saved my teenage years from bother boots.  I still have some of the beautiful Italian leather shoes wrapped in tissue paper and they have lasted well both in leather and style. (October 2017)

1st class service

Always receive 1st class service both instore  and online. Really beautiful and quality shoes in large sizes which are always difficult to find.  whenever I go into crispiness I always come out with at least 1 pair. (October 2017)

My life would not be as good without Crispins!

My life would not be as good without Crispins! Fabulous footwear, styles to suit not only every occasion you might experience, but terrific quality too. The range of shoes and boots is wide. Modern, trendy, comfort, funky, practical, sensational, stylish - you name it Crispins of London have it! The staff are so helpful, always willing to take a call and go to no end coffee trouble to add extra descriptions, talk through options or discuss suitability.  Great service with fast postage if needed and easy to return, refund or exchange. What is there to dislike!? (October 2017)

Bravo!

I have shopped with you for a number of years and always had excellent service both on line and in store. The quality of your shoes and the variety of different styles and sizes is excellent. Bravo! (October 2017)

Absolutely delighted with my service from the staff at Crispins

I am always absolutely delighted with my service from the staff at Crispins, both over the phone and in the shop. I have been a customer for many years and was gutted when the shop closed in Manchester. I make a special journey each season to the shop in London as nowhere else offers a range of shoes that are fashionable, large and narrow enough for me . Thank goodness for Stuart Weizmann and Crispins Shoes. (October 2017)

Thank goodness for Crispins

Thank goodness for Crispins! I am 20 years old with size 10 feet and I LOVE shoes. I luckily discovered you whilst I was at Senior School as I found it extremely difficult to buy shoes that were school appropriate. Out of school, I was so jealous of my friends who wore trendy topshop heels or fashion-forward boots, and when I found Crispins I felt fashionable and fun too, so could join in with my friends no matter my shoe size.

I was particularly excited when I saved up to buy my 50 50 Stuart Weitzman boots and I instantly felt relevant and confident about my foot size! I find it hard to flatter the length of my tall, thin feet, and the shoes I find in Crispins make me feel normal. Please can we have more Stuart Weitzman styles as I am forever seeing their latest collections and wishing I could get a pair from you (as although they have a store on Regents Street they only go up to a size 8?!

Please keep bringing out stylish, young, fun shoes as I am constantly on the look out!! (October 2017)


First class and deserve to prosper

Over the years superb shoes, boots to evening wear, professional care and attention both in person and by mail order. First class and deserve to prosper Thank you (October 2017)

I am so thrilled to find Crispins

I am so thrilled to find Crispins.  The shoes are up to date and beautifully made.  Crispins employees could not be more helpful.  My only complaint is that after years of trying to get one pair of fashionable shoes to fit I am now spoilt for choice and buy more than I should. (October 2017)

Totally shoe-heaven

Totally shoeheaven for us girls with big feet. (October 2017)

 

Been buying your shoes since my early teens.

I've been buying your shoes since my early teens when having larger feet really was out of the norm. The quality and fit of your shoes has been absolutely fantastic and I've found that I have kept and worn those shoes for many years. It's only a shame that you have one London branch but always made to feel welcome. Thank you for the lovely service over the years. (October 2017)

Wish I could have a bigger shoe cupboard!

Just the best choice,correct sizing and quality of large size ladies shoes---I just wish I could have a bigger shoe cupboard so to buy more !! (October 2017)
 

Whenever I go to London

Whenever I go to London, I visit Crispins shoe shop; it's really difficult to find shoes my size in Spain, and Crispins shoes are so stylish... and the size is never a problem. This, together with the kind and exquisite staff, makes the visit worth it.And all the shoes and boots I've bought so far are still so new... this is a problem, because if they last so long, I do not have an excuse to get another pair, so I fancy myself a caprice... (October 2017)


Delivery is always prompt.


I cant recommend Crispin Shoes highly enough. ALl the shoes I have bought are of the finest quality and durability and especially comfort. AS a client who mainly buys online and occasionally into the shop in London, I have to rely on quality to make my purchases as stress-free as possible and am always delighted with every aspect. Delivery is always prompt and the service exceptional. (October 2017)

 

Life saver.

Crispins have been a life saver for me over the past 30 years.  They understand how to design flattering shoes for the longer foot.  They understand that it is not just about making a bigger shoe!The materials used are always of the best quality.  I managed to get 5 years wear out of a pair of ballet flats which saw me through several summers in a stylish and elegant manner!The staff are very helpful and know their stock well.Thank you Crispins. (October 2017)


Extremely happy


I am extremely happy with your prompt service and delivery and delighted to have such an efficient company supplying shoes that actually fit me. Many thanks. (October 2017)

Bravo!

Well done on your excellent service. The young man I spoke to couldn't have been more polite nor efficient. An absolute pleasure to do business with Crispins. And wonderful to find the same model year in year out. Almost the only style can wear with comfort. Thank you. (4th October 2017)

I am very, very satisfied, prompt answers that I asked, I received immediately, very easy purchase, very quick delivery. I'll be shopping for sure in the future.

Happiest days always in these pretty shoes.(23rd September 2017)

Beautiful shoes and fantastic service. Thank you (12th September 2017)

 

Wonderful Seller and Great Shoes!

I was very pleased with all aspects of my purchase. The shoes were perfect and the seller went above and beyond. (5th September 2017)

 

A very 'Pretty Ballerina' indeed!

Took advice from Crispins and went up a half size from my usual 9.5 . The 10 is a perfect fit and the clever laces keep this low cut ballet flat on your feet. I've been looking for well fitting black suede pumps for years - only wish I'd bought two pairs while they were still available. (5th September 2017)

 

Love them!

Bought these on line (quickest delivery to Australia) which is an added bonus and absolutely love them... Worn them constantly throughout our winter. Very comfortable and right on trend, had lots of compliments on them too. So so great getting shoes in this size that tick every box. (3rd September 2017)

 

Wonderful Shoes and Amazing Service

I was very pleased with the quality of the shoes, the speedy and efficient service and communication, and the fit of the shoes. I bought a few pairs to ship the USA. Eagle-eyed staff at the store noticed that I had purchased one pair in a different (and the wrong) size, a mistake I had not even noticed at first. They notified me to confirm, corrected (my) error and shipped speedily. I am an international buyer from the USA and was extremely pleased and impressed. The shoes arrived very fast and in perfect condition. I give this store my highest recommendations.(25th August 2017)

 

Gorgeous boots! Stuart Weitzman Brand

I tried on these boots in the shop and fell in love instantly...the suede is so rich and textured and the box heel and tasseled straps are so stylish. I was hugely sceptical about whether they would stand the British weather but the salesperson was extremely helpful and suggested I take them home and brush them and spray them repeatedly (do the process 3 times) for a good seal. I did exactly that and I wore them non stop from September right through to May and they still look as good as the day I bought them! Thanks for the great advice, I just gave them a final brush and spray and packed them away for the summer but I can't wait to bring them out again. Oh, and I have a narrow foot and these fit fabulous. I have fallen in love with this brand now and wouldn't hesitate to pay the money again.(7th July 2017)

 

Best shoes ever had

Living in London for just a few months I needed shoes for all purposes, but that's not an easy thing with size 9, until the moment you find this shop with these shoes.(20th May 2017)

Comfortable and very on trend.

I love everything about these shoes. Beautiful soft suede. very comfortable and very on trend. In fact I liked the first pair so much I purchased a second pair in a different colour.(27th March 2017)

Happy!

I have had them now for 5 months and have worn them a lot. There are hardly any signs of wear (sole looks almost new), plus they are very comfortable, and just flat out gorgeous. They've not started to bore me at all, expensive but well worth it, and I'm very happy with the purchase and the quick delivery back then.(23rd February 2017)

My search is over!

I have been searching for thigh high boots for a few years; only found over the knee, which at 5'10 is really knee high. These are truly thigh high AND fit my chunky calves AND make my legs look slim! Yes they are expensive but my search has ended though saying, that I would buy another pair in tan or berry!(12th February 2017)
 

You are spoilt for choice

Shopped here  twice ,They have such a wide selection of quality footwear you are spoilt for choice. In my opinion they are no 1 for larger size boots i would recommend these guys for an excellent choice .Keep up the good work. (December 2016)
