    SoleLution's Virtual Fitting Service

    Shoe Fitting Online Questionnaire

    Can't make it instore but still want to ensure your children are wearing the right fitting shoes?  SoleLution can help thanks to our virtual shoe fitting service.  You simply complete the questionnaire, we use our expertise and come up with some suggestions from our stock that we think would give a good fit.  We ship the shoes to you and then if you would like, we can talk you through checking the fit over a video call.

    The shoes that you wear can make you feel confident or inadequate; they can enable you to do a certain functio
