Buying Children’s Shoes – Visit Scooters in Remuera

About Scooters

Did you know about a bright and colourful children’s shoe shop in Remuera? Well, Scooters is the name and they have a wonderful selection of shoes for us kids (and even for mum).

You do everything to ensure that children grow healthy and strong and you are very aware of how important it is to care for their teeth and eyes, yet you often don’t look at their feet. Their little feet are one of the most complex parts of their bodies. Children’s feet are made up of twenty six bones and numerous joints held together by ligaments, all laced with muscles, nerves and blood vessels. As we get older, our foot problems grow with us. Poorly fitted shoes can restrict our feet and then cause foot problems and deformities. Our shoes need to be the proper width, length, depth and shape. It is very important to find a shop that specializes in children’s shoes, with trained staff who have the skill and experience to keep an eye on the development of our feet.

Scooters is a convenient shop and is a friendly place. The team have all been trained in how to correctly measure and fit the shoes. and there is even a special lady who sorts out foot problems. She is there on Saturdays. They have a loyalty card programme- purchase 6 pairs of shoes, you get 40% off the 7th pair. What a saving for our growing feet (and your pocket)!! There is an incentive to local schools and Plunket. If we mention the school that we go to, they will donate some money towards the school’s fundraising. They also support Heart Children and for families with multiples.

There are ranges of shoes for school ,sports shoes, beach and funky casual shoes. They even have Velcro sports shoes for Pete (so he doesn’t have to tie the laces). The All Blacks range for smaller guys is cool. They are also large choices of colourful socks and stockings for all ages.

Scooters is located in the Remuera mall, Shop 11A. You can also call them on 529 7930. There is under cover parking (off Norana Avenue) which is free.
