Help Frequently Asked Questions

We have included some frequently asked questions to help you if you are stuck or curious. If the question you have is not answered here, please e-mail us at info@cheerfulsoles.co.uk and we will respond to your query as soon as possible.


Finding Your Perfect Shoes

You don't sell the shoes I want?

Please tell us if this is the case as we are constantly looking for new styles and manufacturers to compliment our range. We cannot guarantee that we will then stock the product you want, however rest assured that we will respond to all suggestions promptly. Send any suggestions you have to info@cheerfulsoles.co.uk

I have wide feet, will I find shoes to fit me on your site?

Although we don't class ourselves as selling wide shoes, some of our styles are wider than you would normally find on the high street. You will see a lot of styles that cater for E/EE foot widths for example. All our shoes have been categorised according to their width. Please refer to our online size guide for further information. If in doubt read the description for the shoe you like as we may have indicated that it would be suitable for someone with a wider measurement. Alternatively, give us a call or drop us an e-mail and we will be happy to discuss your requirements in more detail.

How will I know if the shoe I want is available?

All the sizes you see in the size selection box are available to purchase and are available for immediate dispatch. If this is not the case then we will specifically state this on the product description summary where you will be advised on delivery timescales.

Will my insole fit inside your shoes?

We have a wide selection of shoes with removable insoles on the website. We will state in our descriptions whether a shoe or sandal has a removable insole. It is hard to say whether this means that you own personal orthotic will fit once the shoes own insole is removed but we are always happy to advise over the phone, 01756 753858 or by email, hello@cheerfulsoles.co.uk.

How do I know what size shoe I need?

Please refer to our online size guides to to see conversions from UK to Continental sizes. In addition, please read the product descriptions as sometimes we might advise you to order a size bigger or smaller due to individual manufacturers size variations.
