The Manager in the Croydon North End Branch (sorry I didn't get his name) has transformed this shop into something special. I have a problem with one of my feet which makes shopping for shoes hard work. I've been trying for weeks to find something that works and I was in his shop for less than 10 minuets before he was able to help me with probably the most comfortable shoe I've had in 15 years. Thank you.

So still waiting to hear back from soletrader and DPD, which I think had made it impossible for me to get my partner her present for Xmas. Ordered pair of £150 Dr Martens and was in when delivery was supposed to be, the delivery was late, which is expected at this time of year, I had to go back to work but I then receive an email from DPD to say that's they have delivered it... To my front door, with no one in, they didn't put it in the bin, or around the side or try a neighbour as I have asked my neighbours if they have the parcel and they do not. I contacted soletrader and trusted shops and they've said it will take some time, however I don't have time, as now I'm forced to either rebuy the shoes or go elsewhere to get them, which I very much doubt I'll get before Xmas? I know it's not soletrader, it's DPD but I mean, in what logic do you leave £150 shoes on a front door, I have no front garden, I live on a busy road with 3 schools, doctors surgery and what not. It's super busy. Why not just put in bin. Now I feel my order has been nabbed from someone somewhere. Just so infuriating.

Sent damaged item, returned for an exchange. Shoes then refunded instead of exchanged, 13 days after original purchase. Customer service email thread not kept current so had to explain myself to multiple people. So essentially I just paid postage, waited two weeks and achieved nothing. Nice one

Hello, thank you for your review. Unfortunately, we had to cancel the order and issue a refund as we did not have the stock available. Maybe the email sent to inform you of this went into your spam folder? We are very sorry for the disappointment caused. Kind regards. SOLETRADER

Love my purchase of Ilse Jacobsen flip flops. However, they were bought with the offer of next day delivery, which did not happen. Then the following day, I was advised that delivery would take place that day, however, later that day I then received an email to say there had been a delay - so next day delivery turned into three day delivery. Soletrader let down by delivery service.

Had to check with customer service to find out that my order (a gift for my father) had been in store for 2 weeks but I did not receive a confirmation email to tell me - service in store was excellent, so a mixed review.

Postcode discrimination when it comes to delivery and return costs. Extraordinarily high delivery and return cost to get items to Highland Scotland despite my post code being in mainland Scotland, in a city and close to a bus station, railway station, airport and major A classification roads with no real additional transport costs to get here. I paid £10.50 to receive/try on/send back these shoes. Sole trader were unhelpful and had no empathy to the high delivery/return cost or the clear postcode discrimination. Would not buy from this company again.
