Poppy Red Children's Shoe Shop

About Us

Poppy Red is a high street store based in the beautiful spa town of Ilkley, West Yorkshire. The shop is owned and managed by mum and daughter team Helen & Jenny and stocks a wide range of exciting and practical shoes. Specialising in children's shoes, we stock many up to size EU39/40 so sell to lots of ladies too. All the staff are trained shoe fitters and able to advise on the best choice of shoe to fit all shapes and sizes. People often comment that they have been unable to find anything to fit in other shops but we are usually able to help thanks to the wide range of different brands we stock. We are experienced at fitting shoes with orthotic insoles, splints and other footwear inserts. Open 7 days a week, a warm welcome awaits you at Poppy Red!

Our core business will always be providing an attentive personal service in our store and so not all our stock will ever appear on our website. If you are looking for something specific and can't see it here, please call us as we may be able to help.
