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 huge selection of men's, kids and women's shoes with free Click & Collect and Loyalty Rewards, Begg Shoes in Kirkwall is the destination for all your footwear needs.

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 Clarks for the little ones, Rieker for the ladies in the family or even Skechers for men.

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 Karen is a qualified professional shoe fitter through the Society of Shoe Fitters Association. Karen and her team offer a professional shoe-fitting service in-store. We believe that kids and adults should always wear correctly fitted footwear and pride ourselves in being able to offer our customers in Kirkwall a 5-star fitting service.

In addition to our commitment to providing high-quality products, we are also proud to be a National Living Wage employer and prioritise the development of our team of expert shoe fitters.
