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 huge selection of men's, kids and women's 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 Rieker shoes for the ladies in the family or even men's 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.

What will you find?

When you visit our Kirkwall store you will find a warm welcome, from our friendly team in-store, who will be keen to assist you. They strive to find every customer the perfect pair of shoes from our bursting stock room, and if we don't have it in store we can also check our other branches and have the item delivered to your home. 

When you think UK footwear the first brand that comes to mind is Clarks shoes and we have a good selection of their classic and new designs in store. For casual ladies, we're pleased to offer a fantastic collection of Skechers trainers in their latest colours and styles. If you're looking for bold colours and statement items on-trend for the season, then Marco Tozzi is the brand for you.

When it comes to comfort our selection of Padders or Hotter shoes are not to be missed. Featuring styles manufactured using excellent construction methods and quality materials, but it's often their extra width or removable insoles which makes these brands come out on top for comfort. For the woman wanting to make a statement and be bold, be quick and get yourself a pair of Fly London shoes as they are very popular.

Our full range of footwear for ladies is available in-store & online all year round meaning you can still shop for sandals during the cooler months or a pair boots in the summer making Begg Shoes an ideal shopping destination for our international customers.
