Sporting Feet Putney Customer Reviews

I just wanted to report how helpful the team are at Sporting Feet particularly Jackie who helped me to buy some well fitting extremely narrow trainers (which are supremely comfortable). The gait assessment is second to none and she was able to narrow it down to a choice of two pairs; it has been the easiest decision I’ve ever had to make! I also bought some socks with moisture wicking capabilities and honestly that was a revelation in itself- no more sweaty feet! Also huge thanks to James who served me the day after when I bought a couple more pairs of socks- he was an absolute joy to buy from, explained a bit more about a few other products I was interested in, and is a huge credit to the company. Thanks - I will be returning!" Zoë, August 2021

"Just wanted to say that the service you gave me was outstanding. Courteous, helpful and quick and my 2nd pair of trainers arrived promptly." Julia, December 2020.

"Had the most incredible experience at Sporting Feet Putney. The attendant spent almost an hour with me assessing my gait, arch, etc to find me the perfect running shoe. Exceptional customer service has led to one very happy customer! Couldn't recommend more highly." YB, October 2020.

The Sporting Feet team in the Putney store are great - they are very professional, know their stock really well and give great expert advice. I really enjoyed my visit and would highly recommend the team and store. Susan, October 2020.

My question on entering your Putney shop was: Are you up for a challenge? Vaughan smiled and said he was. I have very difficult feet with the added problem of a bunion. I was so well looked after by Vaughan and although there was only one possible tennis shoe and one possible running shoe, both fitted well. I usually try on fifty shoes before finding one that is reasonably comfortable. This was a first for me and I ended up getting both pairs. I was truly impressed by the service and care. Hilary, bought New Balance 860 2E and K Swiss Defier, September 2020.

"I am a newbie runner (slow jogger!) of 50+ years old. I was slightly unsure about going to Sporting Feet in case they were all serious runners. My fears were soon put to rest the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. They gave great advice but didn’t try to sell me anything extra. Would highly recommend them my trainers are a dream." Diane, July 2020

"I've been buying my running shoes from the Putney branch of Sporting Feet for over four years. I highly recommend Sporting Feet - particularly because their staff will be able to identify the correct shoes for runners to wear. In my case I got just the right shoes for my over pronation." Gary, July 2020

"Amazing! I needed new running shoes during lockdown and never thought I would get a pair of perfect fitting shoes first delivery! Dominic was so thorough in getting all the info from me over the phone and via WhatsApp video/photos to be able to recommend the right shoes. Perfect fitting shoes arrived and so comfortable for my 5k runs! Can’t recommend sporting feet highly enough! Thank you." Sophie, July 2020 (Putney customer who ordered on phone during lockdown).

"My daughter took me to the Putney store to find light, supportive and comfortable shoes to aid rehab following hip replacement surgery. The staff were extremely helpful with firm and informed advice and went the extra mile to ensure  a good fit. Many thanks for a job well done." John, March 2020

"My husband and I were visiting London for a couple of days and popped into the Putney store purely by chance (we were having breakfast in the café next door and I can never resist a browse in a sports shop!) I had no intention of buying anything but thought I would seek some advice on the best running shoes for marathon training having just completed my first marathon and wasn’t entirely happy with the shoes I wore. The service I received was excellent the guy who served me was a runner and inspired me with confidence. There was no “hard sale” but plenty of good advice.  As a result I bought a pair of Asics running shoes and my husband bought a pair of tennis shoes and walking shoes – not bad bearing in mind we didn’t intend to buy anything! It was so refreshing to find a small, independent store with staff who knew their business but weren’t pushy. " Fiona, May 2019

"I would just like to say what a pleasant and positive experience it was to go and buy a pair of tennis shoes at Sporting Feet’s Putney store. My sister-in-law who lives in London recommended the shop to me when I was in London for a couple of days with my children. We had already tried to get a pair of tennis shoes for my daughter in a sporting chain in Lincoln but although the shoes offered were expensive, there was really limited stock and they weren’t comfortable. We had a completely different experience at Sporting Feet. The shop is completely unpretentious but filled with wonderful looking shoes of all colours. The owner picked out two pairs of tennis shoes for my daughter and she was delighted with the first pair in terms of the fit and look (not like any we’d seen elsewhere). I have to admit to assuming that the cost would be hefty but they were very reasonable for a high quality shoe. We couldn’t resist buying some great socks and a visor as well as the shop has some great accessories.  I could not recommend the shop more highly and am just annoyed I didn’t buy any myself but will do when I’m next in London." Nicola, April 2019

"My physiotherapist recommended a visit to Sporting Feet to explore the scope to to use specialist footwear to help address my injury in conjunction with her therapy. The team at Sporting feet in Putney were extremely helpful, knowledgable and approachable. After making a thorough examination of my feet, gait and listening to my needs, they recommended shoes and insoles. Having bought the shoes, I returned several days later as some adjustments appeared to be in order. They were most accommodating and responsive in addressing the concerns and recommended refinements. Exemplary and impressive customer care providing a confidence building service - well done and thank you!" David, April 2019

"It’s great that you’re here in Putney. You are very valued and have been no end of help whenever I’ve gone off doing an ultra marathon or kitting out my nephews and son for school." Becky, October 2018

"I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for the great service I received in your Putney store a few weeks ago. I've been having foot problems recently and so needed something that would suit the type of sport I do and also give lots of support. I had no clue where to begin, but luckily the person that served me was incredibly knowledgeable and dedicated lots of time to me until we found the perfect brand and style. I couldn't be happier with my new trainers and will definitely recommend you guys to anyone looking for quality products and top notch customer service." Emma, September 2018

“If you’re looking for any sports footwear then look no further than Sporting Feet in Putney. As a lifetime sportshoe wearer, I have found the team are extremely professional, informed, patient and personable - with all ages of client. They can also advise and recommend on suppliers of specialist orthotic footwear and many local sporting clubs. Up to date. Up to speed and always ready to help, they are a cut about the rest." Julia, August 2018

"I have been on a cruise wearing the trainers I recently purchased from you and I am very pleased with them. I should like to thank you Geoff for the enormous amount of trouble you took in accomodating my 90 year old feet and their orthoses. We tried many pairs of trainers without getting real comfort but those on which I finally settled have proved to be very comfortable and enabled me to walk long distances in comfort, far more than I expected to manage. Thank you for all your help and patience." Peter G, August 2018

"I don’t normally review but in this case I commend you on your excellent attentive and personal service. Made buying my new trainers an enjoyable experience and trainers are perfect for my needs." Terry, July 2018

"I have bought most of my running shoes from Sporting Feet in recent years.  The team are very helpful, knowledgeable and they could not do enough to help me get a replacement pair of shoes from the manufacturer when there was a problem.  Great team, good selection of shoes and nice to support a local business!" Miguel, June 2018

Sporting Feet Richmond Customer Reviews

"We had such a wonderful experience today in the Richmond store. We were served by Michael and wow. We are blown away. Nothing can compare to the top tier friendly and professional service that we were shown. We ended up buying two pairs of trainers and left with big smiles. We hope this compliment gets through to Michael. We will definitely be back." Tara and Nehal, August 2023

"Could not be happier. Sporting Feet Richmond was recommended to me by my Physiotherapist, Samantha Parsons. The ‘magic machine’ assessed my arches and weight distribution, as well as foot width, following which the staff recommended trail running shoes and inserts accordingly. The Brooks Cascadias have now completed several circuits of Richmond Park and I cannot be happier with the results! This time last year, post operation, I could not walk. Now I am running, decent length runs (circa 12km) wearing the right shoes for my feet, supportive inserts and Balega socks, all sourced, sized and recommended by Sporting Feet. The internet is not the place to go if you value your knees, hips and ankle joints. A good running shop with knowledgeable staff is worth the pittance extra to ensure joints are protected with the right footwear, especially as shoes sizing cannot be trusted. I cannot recommend this shop more highly, from my personal experience." Nick, April 2023

"I’m glad to have the opportunity to say how grateful I am for the expertise and advice I received in your Richmond Branch. It was so useful to me. I am very grateful." James, September 2022

"Your service in Richmond was excellent. Making sure the shoes would fit and measuring my feet etc and selecting innersoles. I would like to think my tennis has improved based on this fitting and new tennis shoes; what I do know is that the clay doesn’t get inside and I find them really comfortable and light to run in. Thank you." Maz, May 2022

"Just wanted to say such a big thank you for such incredible service. My trainers are perfect!" Philippa, June 2021

"I am very grateful for the help I received at your Richmond store. I felt I got what I needed at the best value and am very happy with my comfortable and versatile shoes." Paul, June 2021

"I am so pleased that a friend recommended Sporting Feet. The minute I walked through the door I knew I was in good hands. I was impressed with the friendly and professional service and the time taken to ensure I was fitted with the right pair of trainers. I will definitely return and will be recommending this store to others." Anne Marie, May 2021

"I was very impressed when I came in to your Richmond store a couple of weeks ago to buy some cross-trainers and inserts on the recommendation of my physiotherapist, following hip replacement surgery. You displayed great expertise and care in ensuring that I received the best possible trainers for my needs and I have felt very comfortable and confident in them ever since, coupled with the benefit of the inserts both for the trainers and for the general purpose shoes that I came in wearing. It was a pleasure to receive such excellent service." Peter, October 2020

"Thanks for your help in selecting my trainers. They fit perfectly and are wonderful to run in." Jason, October 2020.

"Thank you for the excellent service I received when I visited your Richmond store on 20th July. I was very impressed with the quality of advice and attention to detail in helping me to choose and decide on the most suitable trainers to meet my particular needs. I have worn my new trainers over the last 2 days and they fit perfectly and are the most comfortable pair of trainers I've ever worn. I will definitely recommend Sporting Feet as the ideal store for its quality of service and excellent footwear." Fen bought New Balance 860, July 2020.

I have only visited the Richmond store and it is GREAT - outstanding customer service. I realised both my husband and I were going to need a good supply of running / athletic socks during lockdown so I phoned, my records were easily found and the socks were delivered - honestly what could be better? My husband had previously been expertly fitted with new walking shoes and was delighted with purchase and service. Cannot recommend enough - true meaning of service and professionalism.  SUPPORT ONE OF OUR GREAT LOCAL SHOPS!! Fran, July 2020

Thank you for all your support in helping me choose the right pair of trainers which fit my feet perfectly. Really impressed with the technology you used to fully understand the shape of my feet and the attention I received whilst in the shop selecting the right product. I would recommend your business to anyone seeking to purchase new trainers from a professional sports shoe shop. Roger, February 2020

I recently bought 2 pairs of trainers and I am pleased to say I am delighted with my purchase. Having discussed my need with Jacquie, my feet were measured on an electronic floor-pad for length, width and also the map of my foot showing the pressure points of each foot and my arches. This also included walking and standing observations. From this initial observation and depending on my chosen activity I tried on several samples. I also learnt about the importance of having the correct inner sole. The service was exemplary. Many thanks. David, January 2020

"I visited Sporting Feet in Richmond recently and was impressed with the knowledgeable and helpful service. I have very awkward feet and I very much appreciated the patient and friendly assistance I received. Also the foot measuring service is very useful. I am sure I will be returning there and certainly will recommend them to friends." Caroline, October 2019

The lady serving was extremely helpful with gait, sizing etc and there was absolutely no pressure to buy. My shoes fit perfectly and I'm a very happy customer." Carolyn, April 2019

"We recently visited your Richmond branch, buying a pair of football boots for our daughter (11). We were pleasantly surprised at the reasonable price of the shoes (£40). The lady who served us was extremely helpful and also assured us we could return the shoes if unsuitable." Madeleine, October 2018

"I have just made my first visit to 'Sporting Feet' in Richmond and will most definitely be back. I found the sales team friendly, knowledgeable and generally helpful, and the store had exactly what I needed at a good price." Peter, August 2018

"Staff knowledge was fantastic and I felt they really went out of their way to help me select the right trainers for me. Friendly service, and at no time did I feel pressured to buy. I bought a pair of Brookes and can already feel the benefits - less impact on my joints and foot is aligned much better. Thank you Richmond store!" Ranjit, August 2018
