At last, shoes that not only fit but do so with style. And as for service, where else would the items arrive gift packed with lollies. I am and will remain a returning customer. So wish we’d crossed paths in my teenage years … I could have avoided so many tears and so many ugly shoes. Ann

I am thrilled to finally have found a shoe store with absolutely beautiful product that caters for “long feet” (as Carol says). Carol was absolutely delightful, helpful and welcoming and I can’t wait until the summer range comes out.  Thanks again Carol. Ann, Capalaba 

It really is a pleasure to go shopping at the Shoe Garden. I never feel pressured in to buying anything and Carol and CC are the consummate Hosts. I think Carol enjoys finding that perfect shoe for her customers and is always happy to keeping bringing out her entire collection for you to try on. I wouldn’t buy anywhere else now.

Hi Carol. Just a quick note to let you know how delighted I am to have found your shoe garden! My shoes arrived all packaged like Christmas — love the fast and extremely pleasant service. I’m sure to be back soon. Janelle, Orange

Just want to say a very big thank you for the gorgeous shoes that arrived yesterday. They were for my daughter who at 15 (last week) years old and 6ft and still growing, has a size 13 foot and finds it impossible to find shoes to fit (even ugly school ones!) in Launceston where we live. She has a formal dance coming up and we were really starting to stress when I stumbled upon your site and she found the perfect pair :). I would have to say that Zahra is now one of your biggest fans. She’s been saying for a couple of years now that when she grows up she’s going to design pretty shoes for ladies with large size feet. She even had a name picked out ‘Pretty Big Shoes’, which yes, we’ve since discovered has already been taken ). What impressed her even more was the beautiful way you packaged the shoes, the little addition of the lollies and most of all (especially as she’s half Nigerian) the fact your shop supports a wonderful charity that empowers women in Malawi.All I can say is thank you again for excellent customer service. Yes, we’ll be back and we will definitely be looking further into the Micro Loan Foundation charity. Take care and kind regards Trish, Launceston

I just wanted to send an email and say thank you so much for opening your shop for me a few Sunday’s ago. I bought a pair of Diana Ferrari stiletto’s from you. They’re the first pair of stiletto’s I’ve been able to walk around in comfortably for a day and not have to end up bare foot. It’s amazing what a correct fitting pair of shoes can do! I’ll definitely be coming back to your store sometime soon and be recommending your shop to all my friends with longer feet! Thanks again!

I just received my shoes and they are absolutely gorgeous! Thank you so much Carol for the AMAAAAZING customer service I received before, during and after I placed my order! Definitely a returning customer .. oh and thank you for the goodies you included in my shoebox. 🙂 Sau, Sydney

My Mother bought a pair of shoes here some three years ago, and now that she has virtually worn them out, sent me to get her another pair. Carol could not have been more helpful, and made the whole experience of buying shoes for my Mother a delight. No worries, no stress, no hassles – that’s what shopping should be for men. My Mother now loves, and adores, her new shoes. Thanks Carol…and CC. Andy, Brisbane

Hi Carol
I’ve just received the shoes, thank you very much. Both pairs are lovely, but the boots are divine, love them. They fit perfectly, look pretty (I cannot believe I’ll be wearing pinkish floral patterned shoes in MY size) and are so comfy already. Many thanks. I love the way you are doing your business, it is highly appreciated. Vukica, SA

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for my beautiful shoes. They all fit absolutely perfectly and I’ve had on my new heels ALL day today!! Not a blister in sight! I’m just soooooo stoked I’ve been able to buy 3 pairs of shoes that all fit, without even having to try them on! This is simply fabulous, and I really appreciate your excellent guidance on recommended styles and shoe size to order. You will definitely see me back for more. 🙂 Catherine, WA 

As the father of an upset but yet very understanding teenage daughter, who has struggled to find quality shoes for social and formal occasions and also having to deal with the stigma of constantly hearing, sorry we don’t have them in your size. On our first trip to the shoe garden I watched my daughter walk in with the anticipation of disappointment in her face. Once inside Carol introduced herself and my daughter instantly felt the welcoming atmosphere and relaxed nature offered to her. After ten minutes we left with exactly what we were looking for and a teenage girl who felt completely normal .Thank you Carol at the shoe garden. We will definitely be going back. Greg 

Thank you so much for the help with finding semi-formal shoes for my daughter Sarah.  Having a large size foot often makes it hard to find fashionable shoes for teenagers particularly for weddings and functions.  Your help was appreciated and Sarah is so happy with the shoes.  Leisa, Brisbane

Having size 11.5 feet I have struggled all of my adult life to purchase nice shoes. I received my beautiful boots today from The Shoe Garden. The service and extra care taken with my purchase was second to none and certainly refreshing. I will definitely be revisiting this online store. Many thanks Carol. Keep up the passion.

I love this store! It’s full of unusual colourful and bright girly shoes such a difference from the matronly canoes u see everywhere . Good taste good service good fun xxx ten out of ten or ten plus lol. Cassandra, Brisbane

Excitement was an understatement when I walked into your store. I have NEVER walked into a store knowing that looking at every shoe on display was a possibility! At 5 foot 6 and size 11 I often get judged on my shoe size compared to my height. When you add pregnant to the equation the result can be lots of tears! Your kindness and patience Carol was so appreciated and I walked out one very happy lady! Thank you 🙂 And your dog is just beautiful, my husband loved playing with CC ;). Ally, Buderim

To have a store in Brisbane that has groovy as well as pretty shoes is a delight to some who is 6 foot 1 and is a size 12 shoe. Gone are the days of buying shoes online and then having to return them only for the disappointment that they did not fit. I am so use to wearing a “comfortable” shoe that my orthotic can fit into but Carol’s honesty and wide range has even got me wearing pretty/girly shoes that I wouldn’t typically try. There is still at times disappointment that the shoe you want doesn’t fit but at least you know that The Shoe Garden always has an extensive range, so there is always next time! Brisbane local
