Some testimonials from our wonderful customers!
Amanda and her team always go above and beyond for their customers. As the owner of a local Podiatry business we often refer patients who need a specialist fitting for the purpose of ensuring their orthotics fit. Amanda always delivers on finding stylish but accommodating footwear that meets our patients needs. Despite the challenges of the pandemic over the last year Amanda always has a smile on her face and has continued to offer solutions where she can for her customers. On a personal level she recently helped me remotely put together a special gift for my best friend and went to the trouble of wrapping it beautifully and posting it. Can’t fault this business and I wholeheartedly recommend them for anyone who needs high quality healthy footwear.
A treasure trove of scarves, bags, purses and shoes!
I went there seeking winter boots to alleviate ongoing foot pain. Amanda was welcoming, helpful and patient and I felt under no pressure to purchase. ( although I did because the boots she advised I try on bought immediate relief!)
I would definitely recommend and am looking forward to treating myself to a pair (or two) of comfy summer shoes later in the year.
Thank you Amanda.
Meeting Amanda rates very highly on my top 10 list of achievements! Prior to a visit to Solent shoes I could barely walk. Amanda’s product knowledge is second to none, she’s caring & understanding too. I now have a pair of Strive sandals & Strive slippers. The difference they have made to my ability to walk is incredible. I cannot recommend this lovely lady & her business enough. You need to pay her a visit and see for yourself just what a difference the right shoes make. I can’t wait for my next purchase from the Autumn/Winter range! Thank you Amanda!
I would thoroughly recommend Solent Shoes. A beautiful shop with a great selection of reasonably priced, quality shoes and boots. No hard sell, just a lovely experience and great customer service that you just can’t get from a big chain. I will definitely return soon.
Dropped by this morning.
Beautiful displays and a warm welcome . Comfy sofa to sit on whilst I tried on a pair of shoes. No heavy selling or pressure.
Have just purchased my second pair of Caprice shoes from Solent Shoes. So comfortable, a friendly professional service from a lovely lady, in a beautiful shop. Huge thanks to Amanda for changing my shopping habits when it comes to buying quality shoes.
Absolutely brilliant shop with tastefully designed shoes that accommodate a wide range of unique footwear needs. I'm very pleased with the awesome pair of boots I got here I am going back for another :). excellent personalised customer care. You do a good job Amanda!
Pleasant shop, welcoming, good service, hospitable without being pushy. The shoes were a good buy.
A lovely shoe shop friendly staff and very helpful. Loving my new scarf all set for winter. Just need to pop back for my slippers.
I have to wear orthotics and have arthritis in my ankle and am very limited in the footwear I can wear. Amanda was so very helpful and took her time in finding me a very comfortable pair of ankle boots and slippers. I will definitely be going back again...oh and the hand bag is fabulous!
Excellent customer service and very friendly lovely people also the shoes are very nice having just purchased a pair.
Highly recommended. They were so good with my 80 year old mum, who has very wide ‘problem’ feet. No pressure, just very informative and helpful. A joy to see mum comfortable in her shoes again, thank you x
Brilliant service today for Dad's new shoes. Knew what he wanted and correct size waiting for him. One happy Dad x
Fab shop with great, friendly, knowledgeable service. Lovely scarves, jewellery and bags too!
Nothing is too much trouble for Amanda.
I contacted her via Facebook.
She sent me a website link on measuring feet so I could get slippers for my elderly mother. The ones I wanted weren't in the shop but Amanda placed an order and contacted me the next day to say the slippers had arrived!
Amanda's warm welcome and excellent advice is a brilliant addition to Portchester.
I need to go back and look at the handbags and jewellery.
I was absolutely dreading shoe shopping with my 92year old Nan after spending nearly 4 hours looking last time and not finding anything un her size or comfortable enough. I thought I'd take her into Solent shoes first rather than traipsing around all the other shoe shops. My Nan purchased the very first pair that she tried on, she didn't feel pressurised or uncomfortable at all. Thank you so much. She loves her new shoes and treated me to lunch to say thank you
Great service, my 85 year old mother in law is over the moon with her comfortable shoes. Thanks Amanda
My lovely Caprice shoes, just so comfy. I bought these on a day trip to Portsmouth and brought them back to Cornwall with me.
Love the boots I bought on Saturday. Wore them to work for the first time today. NO FOOT PAIN! Thank you Amanda for all of your time getting me fitted with some new boots and for your very welcome advice. At last I've found a shop where I can buy Extra wide footwear that isn't frumpy and old fashioned. No more internet shopping (only to send it all back again!). I WILL be returning. ❤️
Excellent customer service from Solent Shoes following an order via Facebook. Thank you so much. I love my love heart shawl - just more high quality goods. Keep it 👍🏼
I have visited Solent Shoes twice now, what a lovely shop! On my second visit I was looking for a present for a friend & Amanda was great helping me choose a lovely scarf & jewellery set (it was a tough decision as there are so many lovely ones to choose from!) Beautiful shop & great personal service! 😊
Thank you so much for the boots. They are just what I was looking for. I am so pleased with my purchase. Such excellent service as well. Thank you
Solent Shoes is a little gem in Portchester. As a lady who struggles with large feet and slim legs, Amanda has spent time with me this week and I now have 2 new pairs of boots!! Be warned though, her lovely shop is addictive with all the fab footwear and accessories.....after one visit you will be hooked! Thank you Amanda for all your help.....I will be back xx
Two pairs of shoes purchased today. Time patience warmth with great advice was bestowed on me. Excited about new delivery of slippers due soon to add to my collection from this great shoe shop. Thank you
