Charles Clinkard Gabor Shoes Review

When it comes to shoes I am not a girl with millions of pairs. I usually opt for comfort rather than style. Quite frankly the thought of going shopping with little man in tow fills me with dread. Therefore I was excited to give online shopping with Charles Clinkard a try.

Charles Clinkard stock names including FitFlop, Ugg and Birkenstock and have a large range of Gabor shoes to choose from. Eventually I decided to opt for a pair of wedge ballet shoes. I do not have height on my side so every little helps. At £65, they were more than I would normal consider paying so I was interested to see what the quality was like.

I ordered the shoes on Tuesday evening opting for the free standard delivery. Thursday morning came and so did a text with an hours time slot for my parcel. I love these type of delivery companies! They came when they said and I received my lovely new shoes nicely packaged.

I can't tell you how comfortable the shoes were right from the first time I put them on. They are also perfect for running after my children!

I was really impressed with the online ordering service from Charles Clinkard. If I hadn't of liked the shoes, I could have returned them to a local store free of charge following their returns procedure. This is the first time I have owned a pair of Gabor shoes and although they are on the expensive side, they are extremely good quality and I would certainly consider buying them in the future.

We're going on an adventure

I was gifted the pair of shoes for the purpose of this review but the opinions contained here are my own.


  1. They look lovely, we have a store in the next town to us. Their shoes always look fab #TriedTested

    When I got an hour time slot from the courier I was very happy!

    I love the look of these. Never tried Gabor before so will be taking a peek. Comfortable yet pretty! Perfect! #triedtested

  4. Ooh and they have that all important 'slight wedge' which gives us shorties the lift we need! Sounds great :)
