Who are we?

Begg Shoes opened its doors in Kirkwall in March 2013 on the site which was previously trading as DE Shoes, and St Olaf Stores before that. The company, now in the fifth generation of the Begg family, has been in the shoe trade for an impressive 150+ years, which is no mean feat. Offering a vast selection of Mens, Kids and Womens Shoes with FREE Click & Collect.

We take pride in our customer service and will endeavour to assist you in your choice of product from our vast selection of footwear. From top brands such as Kids Clarks Shoes for the little ones, or Womens Rieker Shoes for the ladies in the family or even Mens Skechers for the gents of Kirkwall. All our staff are fully qualified to measure and fit children's shoes, thanks to initial training provided by Clarks Shoes and regular in store training. We are members of the Children's Foot Health Register, and our manager is a qualified professional shoe fitter through the Society of Shoe Fitters Association.
