Is Fly London Comfortable?

Fly London is known for their distinctive styling, premium leather and comfortable fit. They are very comfortable mainly down to the rubber outer soles. They are not soft and squishy like Skechers, they are more of a firm feel.

Are Fly London True to Size?

One of the most common queries we get is about Fly London boots sizing, what size to choose and how they fit. Our customers and staff report that Fly London is not true to size and on most occasions run large. If you find you are between sizes, we recommend trying the smaller size in Fly London if you have never worn them before. Find out more in our size guide below.

Are Fly London Boots Wide Fitting?

The width across the toe is found to be quite broad and Fly London boots are often ideal for those who require a wider fit. However, Fly London shoes tend to fit quite differently compared to the boots.

Do Fly London Boots Stretch?

Fly London leathers tend to be thick and strong so they do stretch over time. The nubuck leathers and suede are obviously softer so they stretch quicker.

Do Fly London Have Arch Support?

In short, it depends on the style. Fly London boots are more structured and the footbeds are usually removable for people to be able to shape their own orthotics. The Fly insoles themselves do not have much in the way of arch support, just a very slight shaping.

How To Maintain Fly London’s

The premium leather uppers of Fly Boots are often in gorgeous colours and finishes, so knowing how to care for your leathers is paramount to getting longevity out of your boots. This includes keeping them in a cool, dry and well-ventilated area, cleaning regularly with a soft cloth and letting them dry naturally. The rubber sole units are instantly recognisable and are one of the best sole materials for improving grip. Fly London design their boots and shoes with details that really add the tough punk style edge, such as metal hardware, lace-up fronts and more.

Is Fly London Vegan?

Fly London as a brand has sustainability at the core of its operations and a six-point action plan for creating a sustainable future. As such, they were a leading name in the creation of vegan shoes that can be found throughout their range – from boots to sandals.

Where Are Fly London Shoes Made?

Fly London is a brand that’s story began during the 1990s in the UK. However, Fly London shoes are made in two different locations depending on where you are purchasing them from. Those ordering in Europe will receive shoes manufactured in Portugal and those ordering in the United States will receive shoes manufactured in China.

Fly London Boots Sizing Guide

Fly London manufactures their boots and shoes in EU sizes, which are sometimes known as Continental sizes. The jumps between the EU sizes are smaller compared to both UK and US sizes. High street retailers often convert European sizes to the most convenient size, even if this is inaccurate. At Begg Shoes, we want our customers to have the best possible fit and our expert knowledge of how different brands fit has earned us a large and loyal customer base.

Our own size chart below is based on the Society of Shoe Fitters, with whom we conduct training with our core members of staff. We at Begg Shoes have over 150 years of experience and knowledge in the footwear industry.

EU to US Shoe Size Guide

As you can see from the Size Conversion Guide, EU sizes are not as closely matched to the UK sizes as you might believe. In fact, one of the most popular sizes, a UK size 6, falls between continental sizes 39 and 40. Whilst we would normally recommend a size 39 in this situation, the different last shapes can fit everyone differently. This can depend on their own foot shape, the toe shape and width fitting. This is why we train our staff to recognise toe shapes in both shoes and feet so that we can offer the best service to our customers.
