About Cool Boys Shoes

Boys Boots and Boys Shoes

As the mother of a young boy I was frustrated at the lack of availability of good quality boys shoes. From the first time my son Max needed a pair of shoes I noticed that there was limited choice in what I was looking for. I didn't want him in trainers unless he was doing some sort of sports, neither did I want him in clumpy, ugly shoes with brand names blazoned across the side. We go to Portugal quite often and there I could find shoes that Max and I were happy with, they were well made, comfortable and reasonably priced. Other mums would often ask me where I got Max's shoes from and so I decided there was a gap in the market for decent, reasonably priced boys shoes.

I started researching in January of 2010, attending trade shows across Europe, asking other mums opinions, talking to potential suppliers and reviewing samples for style, quality and durability. I wanted to offer good quality classic boys shoes and boys boots at a reasonable price and decided to launch Cool Boys Shoes in November 2010 selling children’s shoes exclusively online. I wanted to offer real value to other mums and so decided to only sell my boys shoes online so that I could pass on the savings made from not having retail premises to my customers. If you are interested in reading more about the 'journey' please feel free to read my blog.
