I visited Lockwoods last year and purchased an excellent pair of Leather walking boots. This year I have started training for Trailwalker 2018 charity walk, 100km over The South Downs Way in 30 hours part of a team of 4. I popped back in to see Russell last week as I had been getting blisters during last few walks.
After a good chat and a few laps around the shop in said boots, he fitted some 2mm thick foam pads in the heel area under the inserts.
On Sunday just gone we had our 1st team training walk, 13.8 miles over The Malvern Hills, the difference those pads made was incredible. No blisters. No pain. Great result. Popped in to see Russell today but he was on holiday.
Many thanks to him and all the staff at Lockwoods. Fantastic after sales service. :-) :-)

This is the second pair of walking boots that I have bought from Lockwoods. I have been very impressed with their fitting service. My new boots were a little stiff around the ankles but I was assured ...that I could try them out indoors around my house and take them back and change them if necessary. I am pleased to say that they are now very comfortable and I have been out Nordic walking for miles with our Cherwell group. I have recommended them to a friend from the group and she is off to Lockwoods tomorrow See More

The team at Lockwoods provided superb service last week to fit new ski boots for my three adult offspring and also did some miraculous work making my wife’s boots fit better than the in-ski-resort sho...p could do when she bought them last year in Austria. Thank you to Hayley and the boot fitting team who all chipped in. I would also like to mention the quality of the gear Lockwoods choose to stock; 31 years ago I bought one of the more expensive Berghaus Goretex jackets and was a little shocked at how much I paid. Lo and behold, I am still wearing it after 31 years, under £1 a year doesn’t seem so bad now �. See More

Yesterday, I went to Lockwoods on the recommendation of my boyfriend to get a new pair of ski boots. I’m so glad that I followed his advice!

Wayne was fantastic and spent so much time with me making... sure that the boots were perfect. His friendly and professional approach has meant that I am the proud new owner of a great pair of boots that fit just right!

Thank you very much Wayne and everyone else at Lockwoods - I can’t wait to go and test them out!

Needed new boots so dropped in, received a thorough foot measurement so only tried two pairs on - in fact the first pair felt so good I only tried the second pair because I didn't want to seem too eas...y!
Also good advice on fabric vs leather and taking the insoles out to dry them.
I know I could have found cheaper at some other places but would have been just guessing what would suit my feet!

The last pair of ski boots I had were fitted by an “expert” at a ski resort. After the amazing service we got at Lockwoods for my other half, I thought I’d go back for myself. Again I was met by wonde...rful service. We found that I had been skiing in a size too big for ten years. Skied for a few days with them now and no issues. Would recommend Lockwoods to anyone!

I have visited Lockwoods many times over the past 20 years. The service is second to none and the range available satisfies all exploring the outdoors. The great benefit of making a journey to the sho...p is to gain the expertise of the staff in advising on the most appropriate clothing and equipment for your own specific needs. Boot and shoe fitting is particularly helpful. See More

I travelled up to Lockwoods on Saturday to get boots for The Cateran Yomp. The level of service, knowledge and care is genuinely amazing! Special thanks (sorry can't remember his name) to one of your ...experts that assisted me for quite some considerable time in choosing the right pair of boots for my event and many thanks for all the advice� See More

Absolutely amazing service from start to finish. Wayne (the No.1 ski boot fitter in Scotland) served me and has found me the perfect boot. So excited to use them! Would recommend Lockwoods to anyone :)

Popped in on a Weds morning with last seasons ski boots that had worn and tired insoles. Walked out with the same boots, new custom fit insoles and they now feel like a new boot. Great service from Wa...yne and great value too. Thank you team Lockwoods. See More

I had my first visit to Lockwood today where I experienced excellent customer service from Russ who spent the time and effort listening to how I felt about the boots he was trying to fit to me.
My fi...rst experience but certainly not my last �� See More

After skiing for the past 10 years and hiring boots and buying boots from a large out of town store where they were helpful I decided to goto Lockwoods after discovering them on the internet. I can say the customer service is excellent and there attention to detail in the fitting of my new boots was fantastic. Not quite a pair of slippers but the best fitted pair of boots I have experienced; worth the investment in time and money. Thank you :) See More

Fantastic shop and very knowledgeable staff. The boots that Steve recommended that I get instead of the ones I had in mind have been excellent and I'm 100% convinced that they are as good a fit as pos...sible given my very wide feet.

Because of your staff's professionalism and knowledge, you're now my go-to store for mountain boots and I've been recommending your services to everyone looking to buy a properly fitting pair of boots.

Just wish your stock was more varied and that you were closer to London

I’ve been skiing for quite some time now and cannot praise Hayley at Lockwoods enough, her attention to detail and care was first class.
From the moment we entered we were greeted politely and spoiled... by Hayley, who’s knowledge is second to none .
Fully recommend these guys and definitely worth a visit.
Once again thanks for fitting me out with my boots today x

Second visit here: bought walking boots a few months ago and took our daughter to buy boots. She was as impressed with the service as we have been, and decided there and then to buy herself ski boots well! Result! See More
